On the second match (day night) of the double header in the ICC World Cup 2019 on 1st June, Afghanistan take on Australia. Seems like a mismatch however with Afghanistan having a good spin attack and batsmen who have experience to make or chase good totals, this match can become competitive if they can forget all their fears and play without pressure.
Australia on the other hand would be feeling very good about their chances as compared to start of this year. Since they have beaten India in India in an ODI series and went on to win all the matches in UAE against Pakistan. With similar batting tracks expected in England during the world cup, they will back themselves to at least make the final four.
They now also have in form Steven Smith and David Warner in their ranks. Both men will be raring to go and prove a point by scoring as much as possible in England.
Afghanistan must bowl first if they win the toss to try and restrict Australia under manageable total for chase. And if they can do that, chances of them winning this contest increases considerably.
We hope that this first day night match of ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 turns out to be competitive and a good advertisement for including top 10 ranked nations in this world cup.
