Afghanistan will aim to put up a strong fight against contenders New Zealand, who will be looking to get a second win in two matches. We take a look at players who are set to impact the match result.
The 34-year-old all-rounder Mohammad Nabi is a very important player in the Afghanistan team. He has played some very important part in the major ICC events. In the last match against Sri Lanka, he was the player to watch out for picking up 4 wickets.
Lockie Ferguson has been very effective for New Zealand picking up 50 wickets in 29 matches in ODI’s. He was impressive against Sri Lanka picking up 3 wickets for 22 runs. He generates good yorkers which can trouble the batsmen.
The 32-year-old Colin Munro is very aggressive by his batting style. If he keeps going like that against Afghanistan it will be a tough day for the Afghani bowlers.
Rashid Khan was quite impressive with his bowling in the last match. If he bowls the same spell against New Zealand then it will be a tough day for the Kiwis in terms of their batting as Rashid is capable of picking up wickets at quick succession.
In the last two matches, Henry has been remarkable with his bowling performance. He took 4 wickets in the last match against Bangladesh and 3 wickets against Sri Lanka in his first match. A lot of expectations would be on him as he opens up his bowling alongside Trent Boult. He would certainly try to make more impressive bowling figures in his upcoming match.
