Previously, on Wednesday at the ICC World Cup in Chennai, Afghanistan had a bright start by winning the toss and allowing New Zealand to bat first. They removed Devon Conway for 20 (18), despite some sloppy fielding. Will Young and Rachin Ravindra were out early in the batting, but Ajmatullah Umarzai claimed two wickets in his first over to start a mini collapse. Afghanistan used the same eleven as in the previous game, while New Zealand used Will Young in lieu of Ken Williamson, who was out with a broken thumb.
Afghanistan hopes to win back-to-back matches against New Zealand in spin-friendly conditions after upsetting previous champion England by 69 runs. New Zealand, on the other side, came into this match after a spectacular triumph against Bangladesh. The Kiwi squad will try to keep their perfect record. A victory over Afghanistan will enable New Zealand overtake India as the top team.
Looking at both teams, New Zealand appears to be a strong contender, especially with their fearsome batting. Afghanistan’s spin bowling power, on the other hand, might offer them an advantage in Chepauk. Rashid Khan, Mujeeb Ur Rahman, and Mohammad Nabi will be pivotal, and they’ll be looking for another strong effort from Rahmanullah Gurbaz.
