Afghanistan Vs New Zealand: When the teams of New Zealand and Afghanistan face off in the crucial T20 World Cup match on Sunday, the Indian team will be in a frenzy because their hopes of reaching the semi-finals are riding on this match. Along with Team India, millions of Indians will be rooting for Afghanistan to win this match.
A win for New Zealand closes the door on India reaching the semi-finals because New Zealand will have eight points and India will not be able to score as many points even after winning the previous match. If Afghanistan defeats New Zealand, their modest hopes will remain, whereas India’s chances will be strong, as the final match must be won by a large margin.
With New Zealand’s victory, India’s final league game against Namibia will be a formality. After defeating Namibia on Friday, New Zealand is brimming with confidence. While the top order failed, Jimmy Neesham and Glenn Phillips helped the team to a good score. New Zealand has a potent bowling attack that will pose a challenge to Afghanistan’s batsmen.
Afghanistan’s batsmen have done well so far thanks to the strength of their spinners. Their batsmen, on the other hand, will now face Trent Boult, Tim Southee, Adam Milne, and spinners Ish Sodhi and Mitchell Santner, all of whom are in excellent form.
If Afghanistan’s batsmen can score well, Rashid Khan’s bowlers will be able to do wonders. The loss of Mujeeb-ur-Rahman has weakened the bowling attack, but they can exploit the Kiwi bowlers’ weakness against spin. In the batting order, New Zealand will look for Martin Guptill and Daryl Mitchell to get things going, followed by skipper Kane Williamson.
