Pakistan take on Afghanistan in the first match that is going to be held on Saturday in the World Cup 2019. Needing to win all their remaining games to qualify for the semis, the Pakistanis will be high on confidence after two successive games. Afghanistan are already out of the competition, but will be eager to notch up their first win against their Asian rivals. 

Afghanistan won the toss and chose to bat.

Afghanistan (Playing XI): Gulbadin Naib(c), Rahmat Shah, Hashmatullah Shahidi, Asghar Afghan, Mohammad Nabi, Samiullah Shinwari, Najibullah Zadran, Ikram Ali Khil(w), Rashid Khan, Hamid Hassan, Mujeeb Ur Rahman

Pakistan (Playing XI): Imam-ul-Haq, Fakhar Zaman, Babar Azam, Mohammad Hafeez, Haris Sohail, Sarfaraz Ahmed(w/c), Imad Wasim, Shadab Khan, Wahab Riaz, Mohammad Amir, Shaheen Afridi

Sarfaraz Ahmed: We wanted to bat first as well but toss is not in our hands. Our bowlers are doing well, so we'll try to restrict them and chase the target. We are focusing on this match, not focusing on the next game. Wahab is fine, he's playing today, hence we are playing with the same team.

Gulbadin Naib: We are gonna bat first, the wicket looks good. It's a sunny day and weather is warm, it'll help spinners in the second innings. Pakistan is a good side but we beat them in the warm-up game. We'll try to give our 100% today. We are looking forward to put a good show today. Hamid is back in the side in place of Dawlat Zadran.
