Pakistan have been one of the standout performers at the 2021 T20 World Cup, beating India by ten wickets and then chasing down a challenging total against New Zealand. Next up for them is a match against Afghanistan, and if Pakistan go on to win, then you can safely say that we will be seeing them in the semi-finals.

Who do we think will go on to win? Well, carry on reading this T20 World Cup prediction and all will be revealed.

Afghanistan Team News

Afghanistan showed just how good their bowling attack can be in their last match. Rashid Khan and Mujeeb ur Rahman picked up 9 wickets between them for just 29 runs, while the other bowlers did not give much away either. They really do have a bowling attack that can test the best teams in the world, so Pakistan will definitely be wary of it.

Placing money on Rahman to be the top wicket-taker for Afghanistan once again is a wise idea since he is in great form and often goes on wicket-taking sprees. Of course, you can never discount Khan when betting on the top wicket-taker market, but we would still put our money on Rahman in this match.

The Afghanistan batting lineup was great against the Scots, and you can bet your bottom dollar (rupee) that the likes of Mohammad Shazad, Hazratullah Zazai, and Rahmanullah Gurbaz will come out swinging. There is one thing that this Afghanistan team does not do and that is die wondering. However, we do not think they will have a lot of success against a very talented Pakistan bowling unit, so we do not advise that you bet on them for their individual Over/Under scores.

Pakistan Team News

Pakistan have the opportunity to slay another opponent and basically book a spot in the semi-finals, so we do not expect to see any changes in their lineup for this game. The whole team is performing well, and they would be foolish to change a winning formula.

When it comes to the top batsmen betting market, we believe that putting your money on Mohammad Rizwan to be Pakistan's leading scorer in this match is a good bet. He is really good against spin bowling and never lets a spin bowler get into any type of rhythm. He can also play the reverse hit with great consistency.

With regard to the top bowler market for Pakistan, we would think about putting our money on Haris Rauf. He is at the top of his game at the moment and bowls at the death, meaning that he always has the chance to pick up some quick and cheap wickets as the opponent looks to score quickly off the last few overs. Of course, there is Shaheen Afridi, who has also been really good, but the odds are too short for our personal liking. Obviously, this might not be the case for you, so check out his odds and then make your decision based on whether you like them or not.

Toss Prediction

The team that is lucky enough to win the coin toss will more than likely opt to bowl first. Out of the last 13 matches that have been played at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium, 12 of them have been won by the team that bats second. One of the reasons for this is that dew falls in the evening, meaning that it is harder to bowl in the second half of the match.

Pitch Conditions

The conditions at this stadium have been pretty good for playing cricket but, as we showed above, the toss is crucial. The team that has to bat first on this wicket will have to contend with a slow wicket that grips and makes it difficult to bat. When the lights are on and the dew starts to appear, the ball will come onto the bat a lot better, and the bowlers will struggle to grip the wet ball properly. The team that bats first should look to score about 160 runs.

Our Match Prediction

We are going to put our money on a Pakistan win here. They have been one of the most impressive teams so far thanks to their really good bowling attack and a very strong batting lineup. Afghanistan will give them a good game because of their spin attack, but we just do not think they have enough to beat a strong Pakistan side.
