Indian cricket fans will have all their eyes open in a match that does not involve India. As take on in the Super Four stage of the 2022, the Indian team’s chances also hang by a thread. Afghanistan, who have already lost a game against Sri Lanka, must win against to have any chance of reaching the final. 

If beat Pakistan tonight at the Sharjah Cricket Ground, they will have two points and when they face India in the last game, they would want a win and for Pakistan to lose against Sri Lanka to make it to the final. 

For India to qualify, Afghanistan must beat Pakistan and then India must beat Afghanistan and Pakistan must lose to Sri Lanka big time. There is a lot of permutation and combination involved in India making the final, a few in Afghanistan making the final. 

For Pakistan, the pathway is very clear. Win against Afghanistan and it would be a Pakistan vs Sri Lanka final irrespective of the results of the remaining two Super Four matches. 

The Pakistan skipper won the toss and decided to bowl first at the Sharjah Cricket Stadium against Mohammad Nabi-led Afghanistan.
