AUS vs AFG Match Preview
Australia will be tested against the spin trio of Mujeeb, Nabi and Rashid, except all the claims of Australia playing spin well still some of their batsmen, find it difficult against spin and that too against Highly rated Rashid Khan.
Steve Smith has been in great form in the warm-ups, and he will be Australia’s main weapon to tackle the spin threat that Afgh poses.
He has scored 116, 76, 91*, 89*, 22 in his last five ODI and has an ODI average of 41.84. Steve Smith is in a super form and would play his best cricket in this event. You can definitely rely on him and must make him your Dream 11 captain.
Australia will make their first impression in a 10-team round-robin World Cup against the same opposition, in Smith and Warner’s first official match since returning from their Newlands bans. Unsure of themselves as an ODI entity for a long time between major tournaments, the Australians under Aaron Finch and Justin Langer have found form and rhythm in the past few months, and are now spoken of as likely semi-finalists.
David Warner has recovered from his injury scare from Thursday, much to the relief of the Aussie team management, and Justin Langer has confirmed that he will partner Aaron Finch at the top of the order. And Australia will also unleash their lethal pacers among the lot available here with Adam Zampa and Maxwell taking on the spinning duties.
Afghanistan too will be relieved to have their explosive opener, Mohammad Shahzad, back in the mix after he missed the second warm-up game. The return of Hamid Hassan will bolster the pace department though it’s the spinners who will enter the game as the major threats for the Aussies.
Afghanistan has never played Australia and this will be their first go at the world champions. Afghanistan will look to start the tournament with a win or a fighting loss.
