Take a look at the top three Pakistan players to bet on in Asia Cup 2023. Pakistan will be one of the favorites for the Asia Cup. In fact, it is ironic since they were to host the tournament but now have to share it with Sri Lanka. 

Though you have options to place bets on Pakistan as straight bets under Special Markets, you can also bet on individual players (their performance) through fancy bets. 

The tournament takes place in two phases: four games in Pakistan, and the rest of the tournament in Sri Lanka.

Who are the Three Pakistan Players to bet on in Asia Cup?

While Pakistan is expected to ace the challenge on their own pitches, even in Sri Lanka, they are expected to give other Asian powerhouse teams some challenge. The three key players to bet on during teh Asia Cup tournament are as follows: 

  • Babar Azam
  • Shaheen Shah Afridi
  • Shadab Khan

But before we begin, let’s make it clear that Pakistan has a number of match winners among them. 

Pakistan is a mercurial side that can’t be ignored. 

Betting on Babar Azam in Asia Cup: 

Three centuries against the West Indies in September 2016 introduced Babar Azam to his fans, and he became the sensation that he is today.

  • In fact, he is now called the heir apparent to Virat Kohli because of his string of good scores. 
  • His off side play is tremendous, and his cover drive is especially soothing to the eyes. 
  • He has already accounted for 5089 runs in 100 ODIs with an average of 60, including 18 hundreds to his name.
  • To be frank, his Asia Cup numbers are not that good, but let’s not forget that the man has class and could be the game changer right away if he applies himself.
  • Unlike T20Is, where he opens, Azam will bat at three for Pakistan, which shows how important he is.

If teams can get him out early, it will be a big blow for Pakistan.

Betting on Shaheen Shah Afridi in Asia Cup 2023:

Remember the inswinger for Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul in the 2021 T20 World Cup? 

Yes, that’s Afridi for you with the new ball.

  • This youngster has two advantages: first, he is lanky, because of which he extracts good bounce from the pitch.
  • The second is that he is a left-armer. It is because of this reason he can swing the ball into the right-hander. This awkward angle is always difficult to counter.
  • Afridi will be getting the new ball. His only worry is to watch out for his knee, which has troubled him in the past.
  • He missed the entire tournament in 2022 due to his injured knee. A player of his ilk is a necessity for the Pakistan Cricket Team. 

He has played 36 matches, picking up 70 wickets in the process.

Betting on Shadab Khan in Asia Cup:

Shadab Khan can be the perfect batting all-rounder Pakistan is looking for.

  • Khan spends his time playing T20 tournaments across the world, which gives him exposure. 
  • Shadab Khan can be a perfect finisher. Plus, he can give Pakistan ten overs of spin bowling.
  • He is an excellent wrist spinner who can obtain good bounce and carry from docile pitches.
  • He has played T20 cricket worldwide, which makes him street smart.

Notably, he picked up 73 wickets in 56 ODIs.

Final Thoughts:

Pakistan will face challenges from India and Sri Lanka. Moreover, they also can’t ignore Afghanistan in the tournament.

Here, it must be mentioned that Pakistan and Afghanistan have a bitter rivalry. In the last Asia Cup, both players almost came close to exchanging blows.

If Pakistan wants to win the Asia Cup, then these three players will have to play out of their skins. Never miss out to bet on these three Pakistan players through fancy bets in Asia Cup 2023. 

Under the leadership of Babar Azam, history awaits Pakistan. A win here will surely make them favorites for the upcoming ODI World Cup.
