Rashid Khan-led Afghanistan have stunned Pakistan by clinching the series 2-0, with the final game set to be played on Monday. However, the finalists of the T20 WC 2022 have yet to get going against a strong-looking Afghanistan side. The Men in Green will look for a consolation victory and avoid a whitewash. On the other hand, the Afghans would like to create more history by clean sweeping Shadab Khan's side.

AFG vs PAK, 3rd T20I: Probable Playing XIs

Afghanistan Team News

With the series in the bag, Afghanistan might give chances to players who warmed the bench in the opening two games.

Afghanistan Probable Playing XI

Rahmanullah Gurbaz (c), Usman Ghani, Ibrahim Zadran, Najibullah Zadran, Mohammad Nabi, Karim Janat, Azmatullah Omarzai, Rashid Khan (c), Mujeeb Ur Rahman, Naveen-ul-Haq, and Fazalhaq Farooqi.

Pakistan Team News

Shan Masood may replace Abdullah Shafique, who is terribly out of form with four consecutive T20I ducks. Mohammad Wasim Jr is also a part of the squad, as he might play the dead rubber.

Pakistan Probable Playing XI

Saim Ayub, Mohammad Haris, Shan Masood, Tayyab Tahir, Azam Khan (wk), Imad Wasim, Shadab Khan (c), Mohammad Nawaz, Naseem Shah, Zaman Khan, and Ihsanullah.

AFG vs PAK, 3rd T20I: Top Five Picks

  1. Imad Wasim (PAK): Imad Wasim, batting at no.5, struck an unbeaten 64 off 57 in the second T20 international. The left-handed player enjoyed a solid Pakistan Super League (PSL) campaign and is now continuing his form for the national side.
  2. Mohammad Haris (PAK): Destructive opening batter Mohammad Haris played a cameo of 15 off 9 with two fours and 1 six in the second game. He is an exciting talent but scored 21 runs in the two matches. Haris will look to end the series with a big score under his belt.
  3. Shadab Khan (PAK): Skipper Shadab Khan amassed 32 off 25 in the last match and looked good until he got run out. With no wickets in the series yet, all-rounder Shadab may deliver the goods in the final T20I that help his side avoid the whitewash.
  4. Fazalhaq Farooqi (AFG): Pacer Fazalhaq Farooqi is the leading wicket-taker in the series with four wickets in 2 innings. He has picked up two wickets in both games; he is a worthy choice for the dead rubber.
  5. Rahmanullah Gurbaz (AFG): Wicketkeeper batter and opener Rahmaullah Gurbaz smashed 44 as he set the tone for the run-chase in the second encounter. The 21-year-old will look to play another vital knock before joining Kolkata Knight Riders in the Indian Premier League (IPL).

AFG vs PAK, 3rd T20I: Must picks for the match


  1. Rahmanullah Gurbaz - 60 runs in 2 innings
  2. Fazalhaq Farooqi - 4 wickets in 2 innings

  1. Imad Wasim - 82 runs and 1 wicket in 2 innings
