Welcome to our world, we are happy to see you receive exclusive news and predictions related to the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019. June 18, 2019, Tuesday is going to be a promising day for ODI 24 of 48. A worth-watching and fiery match is going to be held between the most favorite England and Afghanistan in Emirates Old Trafford, Manchester, England.
The weather is expected to be a little unpredictable during the game.
A big gap is appearing to be open up between the top-ranked team of England and Afghanistan. England is ruling in the top-4 position in the current World Cup and they are going to maintain the momentum to win the game against Afghanistan.
Both teams are totally different from each other in performance and rankings. This game is perceived to a mismatch and everyone already knows what the results will be. The pitch is going to make this play more interesting but it will help the spinners.
The first thing that everyone wants to be clear about is whether England is going to choose Jason Roy and Eoin to play against Afghanistan. Media reports are conflicting that Roy will miss his next two matches and other reports are saying that he is available for tomorrow’s match.
Jonny Bairstow, Joe Root, and others are in an impressive form and a confident victory from England’s side is confirmed. Root has already made two centuries and currently enjoying the title of highest run-getter in this entire season. The bowlers are also acting fine and the admirable promptness of Jofra Archer is going to bother Afghan batsmen. There are no reasons why England will lose the game and it is good.
On the other side, if we see the Afghan team, they have performed the worst in the matches. They are improving their performance dramatically but there is a long way to go to become an unfailing and world-class squad.
The batting side of this team is weaker and they are unable to add enough runs to give them an opportunity to put the competitors in tension. Not a single player has scored a century and the highest score was only 59 runs. Only two players scored a fifty.
With this poor condition, it is visible that they are not in the state to fight with the world’s number one team.
They are going to face the best short-pitched bowling attacks that will blow their mind. If the Afghan team will show some bravery by playing out the difficult overs then there are chances they will make some scores.
Najibullah Zadran and Rahmat Shah are the only batsmen that have the stamina to play long innings. Mohammad Nabi also needs to show some courage to show his batting skills and set up some runs for his team. On the bowling line, the pitch may help them. They can pick three spinners because it is the only weakness of England. In this way, they can beat England otherwise there are no chances.
