T20 World Cup 2024 AFG vs AUS Super 8 Match Prediction: Afghanistan vs Australia Check Fantasy Team, Playing XIs, Injury Updates & Pitch Report

Match 48 of the T20 World Cup 2024 will be played between Afghanistan and Australia in Kingstown on June 23 at 6.00 am IST. 

Australia won their first Super 8 game against Bangladesh. Rain interrupted play when Australia had to chase down a revised target of only 73 runs after restricting Bangladesh to a first innings total of 140. Pat Cummins picked up three wickets and was helped by Adam Zampa, who chipped in with two wickets. The batsmen then chased down the target effortlessly. Australia will now look to carry the winning momentum into the next game against Afghanistan. 

Afghanistan, on the other hand, lost their first Super 8 game to India. Chasing 182 runs to win, they were short of the target by 47 runs. None of their batsmen could even reach 30 runs. Earlier in the game, Fazalhaq Farooqui and Rashid Khan picked up three wickets each to restrict India to a total of under 200. 

Among the players to watch out for in this clash will be Adam Zampa, who is the second leading wicket-taker in the tournament with 11 wickets. Then there is Afghanistan’s Fazalhaq Farooqui, who, with 15 wickets, is currently the leading wicket-taker in the tournament. 

In the past, Australia and Afghanistan have played only a solitary T20 international, which was won by Australia by four runs. Ahead of the next game of the ICC T20 World Cup 2024, here is all you need to know.

AFG vs AUS: Kingstown Weather and Pitch Report

The pitch in Kingstown favours spinners and a high scoring game is unlikely on the cards. In the on-going T20 World Cup, spinners have done well at this ground, taking 22 wickets across six innings.

The weather in Kingstown will be mostly cloudy and there is a good chance of rain during the match. We could see yet another game in this World Cup hampered by rain.

Afghanistan are no longer underdogs so Australia cannot be said to be the favourites to win this game. Afghanistan have the spin power that can dominate in Kingstown. This match promises to be an exciting encounter.
