|🏏 Match:||PAK vs AFG – 1st ODI|
|🗓️ Date:||22 August 2023|
|🕗 Time:||09:30 AM (GMT)|
|🎲 Toss:||Pakistan, Bat 1st|
Pitch Report: Speaking of the pitch up on offer, it benefits pacers with the new ball, while spinners will get assistance as the game progresses. The average first-innings score in the 50-over format at the Mahinda Rajapaksa International Stadium is 249 runs. In the 24 ODIs contested at the venue, the team chasing and batting first has won the game in most of the cases as the wickets have often been a struggle for chasing teams as the pitch gets slower during the later stages of the game. Hence, the skipper winning the toss will prefer to bat first at this venue.
Babar Azam: We’ll bat first, the pitch looks a bit dry so it will be good to get some runs on the board. We just need to believe in ourselves and play with a clear mindset. We have our ideas locked in for the Asia Cup and the World Cup, but there are still a few youngsters we want to try, that’s why we have a squad of 18.
Hashmatullah Shahidi: We would have batted first as well. The pitch looks dry and we expect it to turn, so it should be useful for us. Our unit has been performing well, specifically the bowlers and we want to challenge the big teams now.
