Afghanistan will play against Papua New Guinea at the Brian Lara Stadium, Tarouba on Friday, June 14. The Group C match will be played at 6 am IST. This will be the first time Afghanistan will play an international cricket match against PNG. 

After winning two of their matches, Afghanistan are placed second in Group C and another win will see them advance to the Super 8 stage. PNG, on the other hand, are at the fourth spot and have already been knocked out of the tournament.

Afghanistan secured a convincing 84-run victory over New Zealand in their recent match. Batting first, Afghanistan posted 159 for 6 in 20 overs, with Rahmanullah Gurbaz scoring an impressive 80 off 56 balls. In response, New Zealand struggled, losing Finn Allen in the first over. Although Devon Conway and Kane Williamson showed some resistance, New Zealand were eventually bowled out for 75.

On the other hand, PNG lost their previous match against Uganda. PNG batted first and were bowled out for 77, with Hiri Hiri and Kiplin Doriga scoring 15 and 12 runs respectively. Uganda’s Frank Nsubuga took 2 wickets for 4 runs. In response, PNG quickly reduced Uganda to 6 for 3, but Riazat Ali Shah’s match-winning 33 off 56 balls guided Uganda to victory with 3 wickets remaining.
