We are in the commercial end of the tournament, Australia will face Afghanistan in match 38 of the T20 World Cup 2022 in Adelaide. Australia have 5 points from 4 games so far and are parked in 3rd position in the Group 1 points table due to their negative net run rate.
Their game against England was suspended due to rain, but they had brilliant victories against Sri Lanka and Ireland. Aaron Finch and Tim David both had hamstring issues in their previous game and have yet to get the green signal. David Warner needs to step up and he will be crucial in getting Australia off to a good start on the power play.
Marcus Stoinis was also injured but has recovered and is ready to play this match. Not only is it a game Australia must win, but they also need to win it by a good margin to stay alive in the tournament.
Afghanistan has been one of the most unlucky teams in this T20 World Cup so far. They only have two points to their name and both are due to losses to New Zealand and Ireland. They lost their first match against England despite a valiant effort in a low-scoring fixture. In their last match, Afghanistan suffered a defeat at the hands of Sri Lanka, which left them out of the Semis hunt. Rahmanullah Gurbaz and Mujeeb Ur Rahman will be key to the team’s prospects against the Aussies.
Hazratullah Zazai has been ruled out of the tournament and Gulbadin Naib has replaced him in the squad. Rashid Khan is also injured and will be replaced by Qais Ahmed.
