After an impressive win over Scotland, Afghanistan would take on Pakistan in the T20 World Cup 2021 on Friday, October 29. The match would be played at the Dubai International Stadium and would begin at 7:30 pm IST (Indian Standard Time). It was truly a memorable win for the Afghans earlier this week in a Group 2 clash vs Scotland. Statistically, it was their best ever with the margin being 130 runs--which sky-rocketed their net run rate to a huge 6.500 but also, the way they dominated the match from the start was something to watch and applaud. But that is a thing of the past as now they would be up against a tougher challenge against Pakistan, who have seemed unstoppable in this competition so far. AFG vs PAK Dream11 Team Prediction: Tips To Pick Best Fantasy Playing XI for Afghanistan vs Pakistan, Super 12 Match of ICC T20 World Cup 2021

Two successive wins--against India and New Zealand have definitely put them right in the drivers' seat to qualify for the semifinals and Babar Azam and his side would almost ensure their spot in the last four if they beat Afghanistan. Afghanistan also would have a chance at not just going to the top of the Group 2 points if they win, but also solidify their hopes of a semifinal berth.
