New Zealand have been playing excellent cricket in the tournament. With three wins in three matches, the Kiwis have established themselves as one of the prime contenders for the title.
However, Kane Williamson‘s injury and his indefinite absence will be a thing of concern for the team. In the absence of Williamson, Tom Latham will once again be seen leading the team. Currently, with six points from three matches and a net run rate of +1.604, the Kiwis are at the second spot in the points table (before the South Africa vs Netherlands match).
The Afghans will be high in spirits after their convincing win against the defending champions, England in the last match. That win was their only second victory in World Cups. With the Chidambaram wicket pitched to favour the spinners, Hashmatullah Shahidi and his men will believe that they can pull off another heist.
The Afghan batting line-up gave a solid performance in the last match, the team management will be hoping for a similar performance from their batters and then they have the world-class spinners to aid them.
The likes of Mujeeb ur Rahman, Rashid Khan and Mohammad Nabi will be to key to the Afghan plans in this game. With the consistency of the Kiwis taking on the high spirits of the Afghans, the stage is set for a cracker of a contest.
