WI vs AFG Fantasy Tips and Prediction
West Indies: West Indies have themselves to blame for the previous match loss as they could have won it but 3 runouts don’t help anyone’s cause. Chasing a stiff target of 338 was always going to be difficult on the slightly two-paced surface and at 84/4 in the 18th over, West Indies’ innings was going nowhere. That’s when the ever-impressive Pooran started to kickstart the game. Initially with a partnership with Holder (26) and after that Fabian Allen (51 off 32) produced a blistering innings turn the tables in windies side. With the left-arm spinner giving company to Pooran (118), West Indies were looking favorites but as it happened many-a-time in this tournament, a brain fade moment destroyed things. Allen was run out and while Pooran took it deeply, he was removed by Mathews. West Indies would rue some really basic errors that refuse to let go of them. Chris Gayle would like to end his final world cup campaign on a high to expect to go him big.
Probable XI: Chris Gayle, Kemar Roach, Carlos Brathwaite, Jason Holder (c), Sunil Ambris, Sheldon Cottrell, Nicholas Pooran, Fabian Allen, Shimron Hetmyer, Shai Hope (wk), Oshane Thomas
Afghanistan: Afghanistan has a habit of making low scoring matches thriller. The previous match against Pakistan was just an example of the same. When they were put to bat on a slow wicket. They had a decent opening partnership but then fall off one wicket and their batting collapsed. In the end contributions of 40 odd from Asghar Afghan and Najibullah got them to a below par score of 227 runs. It looked like Pakistan’s game but a wicket in the first over of Fakhar bring hope into their camp. Whenever a partnership looked threatening, they got the wicket with their amazing spin trio. In the end, they lost by 3 wickets, but they made the match out of nowhere. The same spirit is expected from them against the likes of Chris Gayle, Nicholas Pooran and Jason Holder.
Probable XI: Hamid Hassan/DawlatZadran, Asghar Afghan, Mohammad Nabi, SamiullahShinwari, GulbadinNaib (c), HashmatullahShahidi, NajibullahZadran, Rahmat Shah, Rashid Khan, Ikram Ali Khil (wk), Mujeeb Ur Rahman
