AUS vs AFG Fantasy Tips

  • Travis Head was outstanding in his return to the side scoring a century against New Zeland a few games back.
  • Adam Zampa was impressive picking up three wickets against England in the last game. He has scalped 18 wickets in his previous four matches.
  • Rashid Khan has an impressive record of 1267 runs and 179 wickets in ODI matches. He is a genuine wicket-taking threat.
  • Rahmat Shah has scored fifty in his previous three games and can be a good pick for this match.
  • Ikram Ali Khil struggled a lot in this tournament and can be left out against this opposition.
  • Mohammad Nabi picked up three wickets in the previous match against Netherlands.
  • David Warner continued his good form scoring 81 run against New Zeland following the century against Netherlands. He has two centuries in his previous four matches.
  • Mitch Starc has a very good record in WC having picked up atleast one wicket in 24 out of the 25 matches he has played and the left arm pacer will be an automatic choice.
  • Josh Inglis will be batting lower down the order and might not face much balls to have an impact. Hence avoid him for this match.
  • Ibrahim Zadran has done well in this format and already has 4 ODI hundreds in his short career. He scored a fifty against Pakistan
