World Cup 2019: Bangladesh Vs Afghanistan


MATCH DETAILS

Bangladesh v Afghanistan,2019 ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup, Match 31
Monday, 24 June; 10.30am local time, 09.30am GMT

VENUE : Hampshire Bowl, Southampton

DETAILS

The pitch in Southampton in the last game was sluggish and the spinners had their say. The tweakers may again get some help, provided the same track is used. But under gloomy weather and with rain around, the spinners may not get as much assistance. In all the games at this venue, the strip got better in the second half. Therefore, teams may opt to field first after winning the toss. 

PREVIEW

Afghanistan, who fell agonisingly short of India's target on Saturday, 22 June, are still in search of their first win at the ICC Men's Cricket World Cup 2019. The 31st fixture of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 will see Bangladesh take on Afghanistan.

Bangladesh are currently positioned fifth on the CWC 2019 points table with five points and will now have to win their remaining three fixtures in order to keep their semi-final hopes alive.

Afghanistan, having lost to India by a narrow margin of 11 runs on Saturday, will be filled with a lot of self-belief and motivation when they take the field on Monday. Afghanistan are yet to open their account on the points table.
