Aus vs Afg Fantasy Cricket Tips:
Australia:If we consider 6 months before Australia would have been nowhere close to being one of the title contenders. But with the series win against India, this has fallen their way, now they have a pretty good chance to retain the title, especially considering their experience and habit of winning the big ICC tournaments. The change has happened primarily because of two reasons. They have been in impeccable form in IPL especially David Warner who was the orange cap holder and Smith, who has got into the grove in the warmup matches by scoring 100 against England.
Batting and Allrounder: David Warner will open with Aaron Finch, both of they are a destructive opening pair and can take the game away in a jiffy. At No.3 either of Shaun Marsh/Usman Khawaja will play then comes Steve Smith, around him the team batting will revolve. Alongside him, Glenn Maxwell and Stoinis will give them finishing touch.
Bowling: They have one of the Strongest Bowling lineups in this tournament consisting of Mitchell Starc, Pat Cummins, Nathan Coulter Nile/ Kane Richardson/ Jason Beherendorff in the Pace attack and Nathan Lyon and Legspinner Adam Zampa who is a definite starter for the upcoming match.
X-Factor: Glenn Maxwell
Probable XI:Aaron Finch (c), David Warner, Usman Khawaja/Shaun Marsh, Steve Smith, Glenn Maxwell, Marcus Stoinis, Alex Carey, Mitchell Starc, Pat Cummins, Adam Zampa, Nathan Coulter-Nile/ Jason Behrendorff.
Afghanistan:Even though they are coming into this tournament as the underdogs, they are more than capable of toppling any nation on their day – as they did against Pakistan in their first warm-up fixture. If they can get around 250-260 on the board they can beat any team in this world cup.
Batting and Allrounder: Mohammad Shahzad, who play an aggressive brand of cricket will be playing with either Noor Ali/ Zazai. Then the most technically sound batsman of the team Rahmat Shah comes in at 3 and former captain Asghar Afghan at 4. Shahidi has played really well in both the warmup matches so he is expected to come good. Then the finishing touch will be applied by the most experienced players in this team (Nabi) and captain Gulbadin Naib.
Bowling: They have relied heavily on their spinners and they have paid rich dividends so far. Rashid Khan has been a key figure for them along with the likes of Mohammad Nabi and Mujeeb Ur Rahman and will be a big threat not only against Australia but against the rest of the teams as well. Pace department will be lead by Dawlat Zadran and Aftab Alam.
X-Factor: Rashid Khan
Probable XI: Mohammad Shahzad (wk), Noor Ali Zadran/Hazratullah Zazai, Rahmat Shah, Asghar Afghan, Hashmatullah Shahidi, Mohammad Nabi, Gulbadin Naib (C), Rashid Khan, Dawlat Zadran, Aftab Alam, Mujeeb ur Rahman
