Afghanistan vs Australia on June 23


Australia and Afghanistan meet again in a ICC tournament nearly a year after they played out a classic. The last time these two sides met was in Mumbai and Glenn Maxwell had pulled off a Houdini act to win his side the game with a terrific ODI double ton. Australia (AUS) broke no sweat with the bat or ball as they downed Bangladesh in their first match of the Super-8 stages. Pat Cummins picked a hattrick while David Warner scored a half-century to power Aussies to an easy win. Afghanistan (AFG) saw their batting collapse against a relentless Indian bowling unit. Rashid Khan was left shaking his head as none of his batters seemed capable of putting up a fight in pursuit of the 181-run score set by India. The only positive for the Afghans was the bowling which came good.  

Best economical pick – The Afghanistan pacer Fazalhaq Farooqi was yet again at his best with the bal as he troubled the Indian batters with his swing and seam. Expect the 23-year-old to be a handful when he comes up against the dangerous Aussie batting unit.

Top captains & vice captains – Australia’s David Warner could be the best batter in the upcoming clash against Afghanistan. The veteran batter came into his own in the side’s previous game against Bangladesh, scoring 53 runs in 35 deliveries and his performance could be crucial against Afghanistan. Afghanistan youngster Rahmanullah Gurbaz has been the best batter for his side during this campaign. His rare failure against India doesn't take away the fact that he is a talented batter with a penchant to score big runs.

Smart pick – With a spin-favoring surface, it could be quite possible that Adam Zampa could be the best bowler for the Men in Yellow. With 18 wickets in his last 10 matches, Zampa has been in brilliant form and he will be expected to be on top of his game once more. 

Cautious Pick – Drafted into the team in place of Mujeeb ur Rahman the left-handed batter Hazratullah Zazai struggled to get going versus India for 2 and he could struggle once more against the Aussie pacers.

My XI – David Warner (Captain), Rahmanullah Gurbaz (Vice-Captain), Adam Zampa, Fazalhaq Farooqi, Marcus Stoinis, Rashid Khan, Travis Head, Ibrahim Zadran, Pat Cummins, Glenn Maxwell, Mitchell Marsh
