AUS vs AFG Live Score, T20 World Cup 2022: Australia & Afghanistan will lock horns with each other in Match 38 of the T20 World Cup 2022. Australia would be eyeing to win this fixture to fix a spot in the semi-finals while Afghanistan is already out of the Playoffs contention with two defeats & two washouts in their kitty. However, the Afghans could spoil Australia’s plans of marching into the semi-finals by defeating them in today’s clash.
Australia would be confident after registering a gleaming 42-run win in their previous clash against Ireland. Aaron Finch & Co have bounced back from their defeat against New Zealand in their opening clash of the tournament & since then there is no stopping for Australia. Their bowling attack has done a brilliant job in the marquee event & is the biggest positive for the Australian team. Hazlewood, Starc & Cummins will continue to be their biggest bets in the bowling department. While Maxwell, Zampa & Stoinis provides them with valuable support.
In the Batting department, Finch who played a spectacular knock in their previous clash is doubtful in today’s clash due to a hamstring injury. Tim David & Stoinis too sustained minor injuries in the Aussies’ previous clash against Ireland & would miss today’s clash. In their absence, the onus will come on Marsh, Maxwell & Wade to step up & deliver for the team.
Afghanistan’s fate in the ongoing T20 World Cup has been hampered by washouts & defeats. As a result, they are already out of the Playoffs race. In their previous two defeats, their middle order failed to deliver while their bowling attack led by Rashid & Mujjeb failed to get the better of the England & Sri Lankan bowling attack. Their pace attack too couldn’t yield results due to inexperience. However, they would aim to play fearless cricket & restrict the opponents from marching into the semi-finals by registering a win in today’s clash.
Openers Gurbaz & Zazai should deliver at the top order while the middle order which looks inconsistent should try their best to score crucial runs & help Afghanistan post a decent total on board. Their bowling attack led by Rashid & Mujeeb-Ur-Rahman should return with timely wickets if winning is on their cards.
