New Zealand Vs Afghanistan: Player To Watch Out For

New Zealand has been performing well in the tournament. They lost their first match against Pakistan, but since then they picked up their momentum and won all of their matches. They are just one match away from confirming their place in the semi-finals. New Zealand is in the second position of group 2 in Super 12. In four matches, they have six points and a net run rate of +1.277. In their last match, they defeated Scotland by sixteen runs. Everyone in their squad has been equally performing to have helped their team qualify. Martin Guptill, Kane Williamson, Trent Boult, Ish Sodhi, etc., have a lot of experience and are leading the team from the front line.


Afghanistan has been the dark horse since the start of the tournament. They shocked the world when they qualified for the Super 12 while Bangladesh, West Indies, and Sri Lanka had to play in the qualifiers to qualify for the Super 12. Afghanistan has been performing admirably, and we should encourage their determination. Afghanistan is in the fourth position of group 2 with four points from four games. They still have a chance of qualifying, and Mohammad Nabi, Rashid Khan, Hazratullah Zazai, etc., should try to grab that chance.
