#PAKvsAFG ODI series is scheduled to begin next week and so, here is a look at 3 reasons why the three-match rubber is important for the Babar Azam led team. It is also worth mentioning here that Afghanistan is yet beat Pakistan in a One Day International.
Pakistan Can Reclaim The Number 1 Spot During The #PAKvsAFG Series
Pakistan had achieved the number one spot in the ICC ODI rankings earlier in the year. However, the achievement was short lived as the men in green failed to hold on to the position for a significant period of time. Nevertheless, the Mickey Arthur coached team can once more become the world’s number one team if they win all matches of the three-match rubber.
A Chance For Pakistan To Test Its Strength Ahead Of Big Tournaments
Pakistan will play #AsiaCup23 and the #ICCODIWC23 next and so, the series against Afghanistan gives them a good opportunity to check its bench strength ahead of the mega events. Moreover, the series will also provide an opportunity to Pakistan to settle batting number of batters who play in the middle order.
An Important Confidence Booster
A three-nil result will help in boosting Pakistan’s confidence ahead of the Asia and World Cup. Now because Afghanistan is a dangerous team; let’s not forget that a defeat can also damage the morale of the boys beyond repair!
