Match 36 of ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 will witness a battle between Pakistan and Afghanistan at Headingley, Leeds. Pakistan have a slight chance of qualifying as they have 6 points from 7 games, Afghanistan have already ruled out of the tournament as they have lost all their games so far. It would be interesting to see whether Pakistan could win the game or Afghanistan managed to do an upset. Let’s have a look at the PAK vs AFG Dream 11 Predictions.
No injury news from both the sides so far.

Weather and pitch report
The weather will be clear and fans can enjoy a full 50-over game. The pitch has some grass-covered which will help the spinners.
Both the teams haven’t met yet in the history of ICC World Cup so there is no Pak vs AFG Head to Head record available. It would be interesting to see how both the teams performed, especially Pakistan who are under pressure of semi-final qualification.
In the PAK vs AFG Dream 11 predictions team for the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 match, Sarfaraz Ahmed has been named the wicketkeeper as Ikram Ali Khil has not been in a good form with both the bat or behind the stumps. He has an average of 30.50 with the bat and has done 11 dismissals so far in their six matches.
Five batsmen have been selected on this Dream 11 team, Rahmat Shah, Fakhar Zaman, Harish Sohail, Babar Azam and Imam-ul-Haq. Fakhar Zaman has an average of 32.80 with the bat in this tournament and a good option as the opener. Babar Azam scored an unbeaten century against New Zealand in their last clash and Haris Sohail also scored 68 runs. Along with them, Rahmat Shah is also known to provide a good start to their team.
The Dream 11 team also consists of two all-rounders, named Mohammad Nabi and Gulabdin Naib. Both of them are doing well with both bat and ball. That certainly proved beneficial for the team.
Three bowlers have been named in the PAK vs AFG Dream 11 predictions team, named Rashid Khan, Mohammad Amir and Shaheen Afridi. Mohammad Amir is the third highest wicket-takers in the tournament with 16 scalps and whereas Shaheen Afridi’s 3-wicket haul dismantled New Zealand in their last game. As the pitch will help spinners, Rashid Khan could be a good choice.
Captain and vice-captain
Imam-ul-Haq and Gulabdin Naib have been chosen the captain and vice-captain of the Dream 11 team respectively.
