It has been a surprisingly swift tournament for Afghanistan, who have proven that teams can’t take them lightly. Australia have recovered from a poor start and are looking to be peaking at the right time. Yet, they can still miss out on the semis and hence wouldn’t want to take things easily. I am putting my money on Australia starting well with picking up the highest powerplay score.

  • Australia had the higher powerplay score in 6 of their last 7 matches (ODIs)
  • Australia had the higher powerplay score in all 3 matches against Afghanistan (ODIs)
  • Afghanistan conceded the higher powerplay score in 3 of their last 6 matches (ODIs)
  • David Warner has 2 scores of 50 or above in his 3 matches against Afghanistan (ODIs)

Head to Head


It’s not often that these teams play and in fact only three ODIs have been played between Australia and Afghanistan. All three were won by Australia. One player who’s done well is David Warner who has scores of 24, 178, and 89 from those games.

Australia Form


Australia are 3rd in the points tally with 10 points from seven matches. They have won their last five matches in a row and are looking for a win to solidify their chances of qualification.

The five-time Champions have another match against Bangladesh and winning both will give them a straight shot at semis. Even a win is enough and they will be looking to close it out against a side they defeated in all three matches prior.

All eyes in the Aussie camp will be on David Warner (428) to do the job with the bat. With the ball, it is Adam Zampa (19) who has been leading Australia’s charge.

Australia Team News


Mitchell Marsh and Glenn Maxwell are likely to return for Australia after missing the previous match. The likely exclusions could be Cameron Green plus one of Steve Smith or Marnus Labuschagne.

Afghanistan Form


Afghanistan are 6th in the standings with eight points from seven matches. All their wins have come in a row as they approach this match with confidence.

The Afghans also have their chances of qualification within their hands. Win both games against Australia and South Africa, and they will be through to top-four.

Five batters aggregate more than 200 for the Afghans but none more than 282. With the ball too, five bowlers have taken six to seven wickets.

Afghanistan Team News


Noor Ahmed may give way to Naveen-Ul-Haq looking at the conditions, although Australia’s struggles against spin could push for the inclusion of Noor.

Verdict

Australia won’t be taking any chances against Afghanistan, looking at how the Afghans have toppled Pakistan and England. The Aussies would be going heavy at the top and that makes them a good pick to return highest powerplay score. Keep an eye on the individual market for David Warner scoring a century.
