Afghanistan Form and Team News

Despite suffering a defeat against Pakistan in the previous match, Afghanistan will come in the Sunday’s contest as a favourite and they are unlikely to make any significant changes in the playing XI as well.

The management will be extremely pleased with the overall performance of the players during a nail-biting defeat to the Men-in-Green where despite losing six wickets for not many runs on the board, they made a great comeback and were very much in the contest till the last two overs.

However, there will be discussions regarding some of the captaincy decisions on the field which proved too costly.

In the batting department, the Afghan team will be heavily relying on the likes of captain Mohammad Nabi, dangerous opener Hazratullah Zazai, wicketkeeper-batter Mohammad Shahzad, experienced Asghar Afghan, left-hander Najibullah Zadran and all-rounders Karim Janat, Gulbadin Naib to score bulk of the runs and give the bowlers something to bowl with.

In the bowling department, the onus will be on the likes of pacers Naveen-ul-Haq, Janat, Naib along with the spin trio of Rashid Khan, Mujeeb Ur Rahman and Nabi to produce timely breakthroughs and restrict the opposition.

Our Tipster’s Angle

Since both teams will be meeting for the first time in the history of T20 cricket, it is not easy to predict an outright winner.

Even though Afghanistan are coming on the back of suffering a defeat in the previous match, they will still start the contest as favourites, largely because of the fight they showed against one of the most in-form teams in the competition.

That’s not it as on paper at least, they’ve a far superior talent available according to the conditions compared to Namibia.

Therefore, the prediction is for Mohammad Nabi-led unit to secure their second win of the competition.

Tip 1: Mujeeb Ur Rahman to continue his excellent form for Afghanistan

Off-spinner has put in splendid performances for Afghanistan in the two matches played in this T20 World Cup. In the previous match, Mujeeb Ur Rahman delivered another excellent performance against Pakistan and finished with figures of 1 for 14 in four overs. With 6 wickets to his name at an economy rate of 4.25, Mujeeb Ur Rahman is currently Afghanistan’s joint leading wicket-taker along with Rashid Khan.

Tip 2: David Wiese to continue his decent form with the bat for Namibia

Former South African all-rounder has put in impressive performances with bat and ball for Namibia. The 36-year old has shown excellent form with the bat for Namibia. With 116 runs at an average of 58.00, David Wiese is currently Namibia’s leading run-scorer in the competition. Given his excellent contributions in this T20 World Cup, we can expect all-rounder David Wiese to score 20 runs or more against [email protected]
