World Cup 2019: South Africa Vs Afghanistan


MATCH DETAILS

South Africa Vs Afghanistan, ICC World Cup 2019 Match 21
June 15, 2019, 06:00 pm IST

VENUE : Sophia Gardens, Cardiff

DETAILS

The overcast conditions coupled with seaming tracks on offer in Cardiff have proven to be a paradise for fast bowlers this World Cup. A total of 30 wickets have fallen at this venue in the two matches thus far while the 200 run mark has only been crossed once. As a result, the captain that wins the toss on the day should have no hesitation in electing to field first.

PREVIEW

South Africa will look to secure their first win of the tournament when they take on Afghanistan at the Sophia Gardens in Cardiff. The 21st match of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 will be played on June 15 with live telecast scheduled to begin at 06:00 PM IST.

South Africa needs to win all five of their matches and hope for some luck to be able to qualify for the ICC World Cup 2019 semi-finals. They have two potential ‘easy’ games against Afghanistan and Sri Lanka which they must win and try to improve their net run-rate a bit as well.

Like South Africa, Afghanistan too are in search of their first win in the tournament and they are languishing at the bottom of the CWC 2019 points table having lost all their first three fixtures.
