AFG vs NZ Fantasy Tips:

New Zealand:New Zealand are off to rollicking start to their world cup campaign, they are at the top of the table with 2 wins in 2 matches and with the kind of cricket that they are playing, 3rd win is not so far. They do not have big names in the lineup but each player on a given day do his job and try to win the game for his team. From the last to game, Matt Henry has led the bowling attack with 7 wickets in 2 matches. He has swung the new ball and troubled the batsman and with his slower once’s and bouncer has been effective in the death. In the batting department, Ross Taylor has been the star of the previous match (MOM with a match-winning 82). Their batting needs to solidify as 2 allrounder doesn’t give you great assurance in the batting. They heavily rely on Kane Williamson and Ross Taylor.

Probable XI: Martin Guptill, Colin Munro, Kane Williamson (c), Ross Taylor, Tom Latham (wk), James Neesham, Colin de Grandhomme, Mitchell Santner, Matt Henry, Lockie Ferguson, Trent Boult

Afghanistan:Naib’s men are at the bottom of the points table. The loss against Srilanka would have dented their confidence as the game was in their hands and they have given it to the opposition.

Mohammad Shahzad and Zazai gave them a platform to build but furry of wicket fell which was the reason for the defeat. They could not counter the swing bowling from Malinga and NuwanPradeep. If they have any chance of winning their upcoming match, they need to post around 250 runs on the board as they have the bowling which could defend this total

Probable XI: Mohammad Nabi, Mohammad Shahzad (wk), Dawlat Zadran, Gulbadin Naib (c), Hashmatullah Shahidi, Najibullah Zadran, Rahmat Shah, Rashid Khan, Hazratullah Zazai, Mujeeb Ur Rahman, Hamid Hassan
