On Saturday, Pakistan will look to bolster their chances of qualifying to the semi-finals by upstaging uninspiring Afghanistan at the Headingley Stadium in Leeds. With three wins in seven games, the men-in-green are currently placed at sixth spot and if they are able to beat both Afghanistan and Bangladesh, it is likely, that team will see themselves playing knockouts.
Afghanistan, on the other hand, are yet to open their account in points table as they lost all seven games they have played. They have had a disappointing season so far and will look to do some upsets before the board the flight back home.
With Pakistan having all to play for, News Nation brings to you as what could be the best fantasy XI for the encounter between Afghanistan and Pakistan:
