Afghanistan vs England- Previews and Betting Tips

Afghanistan are among the up-and-coming teams in the International circuit. They have been growing immensely and have performed splendidly against the best. They recently played in the Asia Cup, where they did give some good performances. However, they got knocked out in the Super 4 stage of the tournament.

Before kickstarting their world cup campaign, they played two warm-up matches, their first being against Bangladesh. Batting first, Ibrahim Zadran scored a stern 46, while Mohammad Nabi came out all guns blazing. He scored a 17-ball 41 to get Afghanistan to 160/7. In reply, Fazhalaq Farooq's 3/42 & Fareed Ahmad’s 2/9 helped restrict the Bangla tigers to a mere 98/9.

Sadly, the second warm-up game against Pakistan was washed out due to rain. However, the first innings were concluded when Mohammad Nabi starred yet again. He scored a handsome 37-ball unbeaten 51 and announced his arrival to the tournament.

On the other hand, England are walking into this tournament, being one of the dominant teams that can lift the prestigious T20 World Cup trophy.  They recently played a T20I series against the hosts, which they won convincingly by 2-0. They also played a warm-up game against Pakistan on October 17. The English bowlers did well to restrict Pakistan to 160/8. However, it was too easy of a run-chase for England. Harry Brook’s unbeaten 24-ball 45, Sam Curran’s unbeaten 14-ball 33 & Ben Stokes's 18-ball 36 got England over the line. They chased down 161 in just 14.4 overs.

England have won both games in the past two meetings, while Afghanistan are yet to open their account. We predict England will emerge victorious in today’s T20 world cup match with the red-hot form they are in. We advise all our viewers and betters out there to place bets by doing your research. Knowing the player and team's performance always helps place a reliable bet. Keep in mind to work out your luck during live streaming, as the best odds are available at that time.



Afghanistan is an emerging side but is already battling and giving a tough time to the best in the business. They have some diamonds in their basket that will come in handy during their encounter against England. 

In the past 10 matches, Ibrahim Zadran & Rahmanullah Gurbaz have been phenomenal with the bat. They have scored 287 and 260 runs, respectively, and look to be in sublime form.

As for the bowlers, who can forget Mujeeb Ur Rahman & Naveen-ul-Haq, who have bagged 13 and 10 wickets, respectively, at a healthy economy rate. They also have Rashid Khan who has emerged so well as a batsman as well as a bowler and will prove to be very lethal. Not to forget the skipper Mohammad Nabi, the backbone of the Afghanistan line-up.

Squad: Mohammad Nabi(C), Rahmanullah Gurbaz(wk), Hazratullah Zazai, Najibullah Zadran, Gulbadin Naib, Rahmat Shah, Ibrahim Zadran, Mujeeb Ur Rahman, Naveen-ul-Haq, Rashid Khan, Fazalhaq Farooqi


The English side looks invincible. They have been toying with the bowlers as if they’re too slow. They have had some sumptuous blind hitting in the recent T20I games, and they will certainly go after the Afghan bowlers. David Malan & Harry Brook will be the ones that the Afghans will have to watch out for. In recent matches, they have scored runs with a batting average of 40.14 & 50.20, respectively. Jos Buttler, the skipper, is another prospect for a hard-hitter. As for the bowling department, Mark Wood has done exceptionally well, with 9 scalps in 4 matches. Alongside him is Sam Curran, who always chips in with valuable runs and has 12 wickets already in the past 8 T20Is this year. The three lions will make life very difficult for team’s this season with their batting line-up.

Squad: Jos Buttler(C)(wk), Sam Curran, Moeen Ali, Harry Brook, Alex Hales, Dawid Malan, Ben Stokes, Adil Rashid, Chris Jordan, Mark Wood, David Willey

Pitch and weather Conditions

The weather forecast predicts it to be mostly sunny on match day, with chances of rain being as low as zero to 10%. It’s expected to be only 52% humid. Seems like fans can look forward to an exciting day of cricket.

The venue hasn’t seen a lot of cricketing action due to the pandemic. Although, it is a much flatter surface with a lot of help to the pace bowlers. Teams will be looking to keep that extra pace bowling option. However, the ball comes onto the bat nicely, but runs will need to be hard-earned.
