  • Despite Australia’s 42-run victory over Ireland, they sit outside of the top two places in their ‘Super 12’s’ group by virtue of net-run-rate and to give themselves a chance of qualification even if England were to defeat Sri Lanka, the Aussies must beat Afghanistan by more than 60 runs.
  • Hamstring injuries to both the big-hitting Tim David and captain Aaron Finch render both players as doubts for this game, although all-rounder Marcus Stoinis has been passed fit to play.


  • It can’t be denied that Afghanistan have been dealt an extremely rough hand over the course of the ‘Super 12’s’ with two of their four games played abandoned due to rain, but with no wins on the board their hopes of reaching the semi-finals are now over.
  • Afghanistan’s most recent match saw them lose by six wickets against Sri Lanka with plenty of batters gaining starts, but none of them ultimately going on to make a match-winning score.


Australia have no choice but to attack Afghanistan from the off, knowing the importance of gaining victory by a large margin. This is a risky strategy when taking into account the quality of Afghanistan’s spin-bowling attack, but needs must for the host nation. Fortunately, Australia look to have gotten into their stride following a slow start and with plenty of firepower within their batting order, will be confident of scoring at a fast rate. Meanwhile, confidence is likely to be low amid this Afghanistan side, particularly with the bat and the expectation is that Australia will comfortably come out on top.
