38th T20 Match
November 4, 2022 1:30 PM Adelaide Oval, Adelaide, Australia
00/0 IN 0.0
00/0 IN 0.0
Australia will be encouraged after their recent precise victory against Ireland. Afghanistan suffered another defeat against Sri Lanka in their last encounter. Despite their loss to New Zealand in the opening match, the Australians have been in excellent form. Their quick bowling approach is upsetting opponents, and this approach will seek to worry the Afghans under cloudy circumstances. Afghanistan has had a disappointing season, and it would be intriguing to see whether they could turn things against the world cup winners. Australia must win this match by a substantial margin in order to boost their net-run-rate beyond that of New Zealand or England and advance to the next round. From the opening ball, we anticipate a dominant Australia effort. Afghanistan has been unlucky due to weather, since two matches have been rained out, although they have been underwhelming in their finished games. A win over the hosting side and reigning T20 World Cup champs would come as a huge surprise.
Adelaide Oval is among Australia’s top batting grounds, having smaller fences around the circle. Pace bowlers have performed well at this facility in cloudy weather. Spinners have long struggled because the size of the ground provides little room for mistake.
Aaron Finch delivered a magnificent knock in the previous game and will seek to make a solid start with David Warner, who has underperformed. By winning this match, Aaron Finch’s side will attempt to secure a spot in the semifinals. They come in with a lot of confidence after beating Ireland by 42 runs. Their bowlers have performed admirably in the event, which will boost the team’s morale. Finch will be hoping for nice weather to increase their chances of qualifying. Mitchell Marsh, Glenn Maxwell, and Marcus Stoinis are expected to light up the middle order. The team’s strength comes from its batting versatility, and they will appreciate runs from Tim David, Matthew Wade, and Pat Cummins. Josh Hazlewood and Pat Cummins will try to get off to a solid beginning with the new ball while also taking advantage of the dampness on the pitch. Mitchell Starc hasn’t performed his finest, and this is his best chance to get back on track. Glenn Maxwell, Adam Zampa, and Marcus Stoinis round up the team’s powerful bowling lineup.
In their final match, Mohammad Nabi’s team will compete for pride. They were withdrawn from the competition after losing by 6 wickets against Australia in their last encounter. Thus far, the group’s effort has been a failure. Nabi wants his teammates to exhibit themselves and put on a nice performance as they leave the competition. Openers Rahmanullah Gurbaz and Hazratullah Zazai must deal with Australia’s potent fast-bowling assault and get things going. The middle order had not been steady for the team, so scores from Ibrahim Zadran, Najibullah Zadran, and Gulbadin Naib were needed. For the team to win, Nabi and Rashid Khan must both perform well as finishers. The pace bowlers have struggled in these circumstances, and the team expects a great performance from them. Fazalhaq Farooqi and Mujeeb ur Rahman have to get the new ball off to a solid start. Rashid Khan, Azmatullah Omarzai, and Nabi must all perform their mojo in the middle overs. Fareed Ahmad Malik and Gulbadin Naib would also benefit from strong performances.

In recent matches, teams have won by trailing the score at this stadium. At the beginning of the game, the circumstances will be tough. With gloomy conditions, pace bowlers will be anticipated to prevail in the opening overs. Given such circumstances, the team that wins should not hesitate to bowl first.
We are backing Australia to win. Every single one of Australia’s finest players is on the squad, providing them a formidable T20 lineup. Australia has it everything, from all-rounders to game-changing openers. The bowling offense of the opposing side has some excellent players. And their out-of-form top bats will most likely benefit from the situation here. Throughout the tournament, Afghanistan has been outscored by its opposition. Their batters and bowlers haven’t worked well together and have failed to adjust to the circumstances. Australians are playing at home, and their fast bowlers are in top form. Bet on Australia to win.
