And The Award for the Most predictable match goes to…

We can just imagine Afghanistan’s captain telling his team to just go out and make sure they get at least one win out of the possible 9 matches just to make sure they don’t end up in the record books for the wrong reason. Having already lost your first two matches, you wouldn’t wish to play against NZ (To be honest you would not wish to play anyone but Zimbabwe). They have been bowled out in both their matches and except Najibullah Zadran, no one else know how to stay on the pitch for more than 20 minutes. There is a silver lining though, in their previous match, they showed that if the pitch offers a little support they have the capability to wreak havoc with their two star bowlers.


Nothing new with New Zealand, we predicted them to be somewhat dominant in the early stages at least and they have not disappointed anyone, the second win was not as convincing as the first one but their main strength was on display, they never ending batting order. If you have De Grandhomme coming 7th down, you have done something right in your life.


We are not anticipating this to be a very close match especially considering the fact that New Zealand in the last few years has been very dominant again Asian teams.

AFG vs NZ 2019 Dream11 Team Prediction and Suggestions 🧠


Wicket Keeper: Afghanistand’s first choice keeper is out of the tournament now and NZs first choice has a fat zero in his account till now. Hard to go right here, leave it to luck.

Batsmen: Let’s get to the AFG players first, Najibullah Zadran and R. Shah. Zadran will be in everyone’s team Shah will be one of the difference makers. From NZ, it is easy to choose, Munro, Guptill, and Williamson, their top 3.

All Rounders: Lots of unknowns here in between few obvious picks, don’t be a hipster, just go for Nabi and de Grandhomme.

Bowlers: Henry is on fire in this WC and we doubt Southee will get his place back once he returns, he is our start bowler today along with Mr. Boult. Of course, there is Rashid Khan in the team too.
