AFGH vs SA Dream11 21th Match Prediction | Afghanistan vs South Africa ICC World Cup 2019

Two teams who are yet to taste success in the ICC World Cup 2019 will be squaring off at the Sophia Gardens in Cardiff. The teams we are talking about here are Afghanistan and South Africa. After facing 3 defeats in a row, Afghanistan are languishing at the bottom, whereas, South Africa having lost 3 matches and involved in an abandoned game are placed right above Afghanistan at the 9th position.

This would be the first-ever meeting between these two sides in One-day Internationals and nothing better than a crunch situation like this. With World Cup semi-final spot on the line, a loss here for either side will be curtains to their World Cup campaign for 2019.


Best Performance in the World Cup:

South Africa: Semi-finalist in 1992, 1999, 2007, and 2015.

Afghanistan: Finished Sixth in the league stage in the 2015 edition.

The story has been the same so far, another day where cloud covers are expected and rain will be halting the first half of the game. These conditions generally assist the seam bowlers who can do some early damage with the new ball.
