The stage is set for an exciting clash in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2023 as Pakistan and Afghanistan square off at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai. With both teams vying for supremacy in this marquee tournament, it’s a match that promises high-intensity action and a test of their cricketing mettle.
Pakistan’s recent loss in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2023 came against Australia at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium, ending in a convincing 62-run victory for the Aussies. Adam Zampa played a pivotal role, taking four crucial wickets. Meanwhile, New Zealand continued their flawless start in the tournament, with Lockie Ferguson and Mitchell Santner each grabbing three wickets in their resounding 149-run triumph over Afghanistan. Afghanistan’s hopes fizzled as they couldn’t sustain the momentum gained from their previous upset win against England. Rahmat Shah top-scored for Afghanistan with 36, but their batting lineup crumbled under Kiwi pressure.
