Former all-rounder Abdul Razzaq has issued a warning to Pakistan after Afghanistan’s impressive 69-run victory over defending champions England at the World Cup. He advised Pakistan to be prepared for a tough challenge from Afghanistan in their upcoming fixture scheduled for October 23 in Chennai during the ongoing mega event.
Razzaq, a seasoned cricket expert, emphasized the importance of caution and readiness for Pakistan in their match against Afghanistan. He mentioned Afghanistan’s recent strong performances against Pakistan and their ability to hold winning positions, with Pakistan’s Naseem Shah playing a crucial role in thwarting their efforts. This, Razzaq believes, showcases Afghanistan as a competitive team.
Furthermore, Razzaq noted that Afghanistan’s confidence has received a significant boost, especially after their match against India, where they displayed impressive batting against India’s formidable bowling attack. This performance has solidified their status as a formidable team in the tournament.
With Pakistan set to face Australia on October 20 and Afghanistan on October 23, the upcoming fixtures promise to be exciting. Afghanistan’s victory over England has established them as a serious contender in the World Cup 2023, and these clashes are eagerly anticipated as teams like Afghanistan continue to challenge the status quo in the world of cricket.
