Match details

England vs Afghanistan, Match 24, ICC Cricket World Cup 2019
Tuesday, June 18 3:00 pm IST

Venue : Old Trafford, Manchester

details

The surface for the marquee clash was absolutely flat and the ball turned significantly later on. This brings Afghanistan spinners into the game as well. The team winning the toss should look to bat first irrespective of the conditions as Pakistan bowlers hardly found any swing after the first few overs against India. 

Preview

England, who have excelled on all fronts in their last two matches, will look to further establish their ascendancy when they face Afghanistan, who are currently placed last on the points table, on Tuesday, 18 June.

England is the team with 6 points in the 4 matches with 3 wins against West Indies, South Africa and Bangladesh. There are concerns over the fitness of skipper Eoin Morgan and opening batsman Jason Roy, who left the field midway against West Indies due to injuries, with the latter being ruled out for a minimum of two matches due to hamstring injury.

Afghanistan are yet to register their first win in the tournament with 4 losses in the four matches they played so far. The Gulbadin Naib-led side will have to put together a complete performance if they are to challenge the top-ranked England side.
