Pakistan vs Afghanistan World Cup Highlights 2023 – 23rd October

Pitch and weather: The pitch will be the same as the one used for the Australia-India game a fortnight ago, which means both sides can expect plenty of turn. There is an excessive heat warning in Chennai tomorrow, with conditions expected to be particularly oppressive throughout the afternoon. That could mean batting first for the side winning the toss.

Post Match Presentation

Babar Azam:

“We had a good total, but in bowling, we were not up to the mark because we weren’t taking wickets in the middle overs. In a World Cup, if you are not good even in one department, you lose. We started well while bowling, but we couldn’t take wickets. All credit to Afghanistan. We are not playing good cricket, [especially] in bowling and fielding. The pitch was helping the spinners even in the second innings. There was no pressure on their batsmen.”

Hashmatullah Shahidi:

“This win tastes nice. The way we chased today was very professional. We have been quality cricket from a couple of years. We will try our best to play positive cricket, and do a lot for our country. Today bowling was very good, especially spin bowling. We gave a chance to Noor, and he showed… The game was in our hands from the beginning till the end.”

Ibrahim Zadran is the Player of the Match:

“Thankful that I performed well in this event. I wanted to play with a positive intent. Many times Gurbaz and I have done a brilliant partnership together. We have played a lot of cricket together, right from the Under-16 days. I am feeling very glad for myself and for my country.”
