[ad_1]

Australia vs Afghanistan Live Score Updates: AUS vs AFG, World Cup royalty Australia take on a resurgent Afghanistan side at the iconic Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai from 2pm today.

The Aussies have made a great comeback in the tournament after being crushed by India and South Africa in their opening two ICC World Cup 2023 matches.

David Warner, at the top of the Australian batting line-up, has proved his critics wrong and continues to shine as one of the tournament’s top run-scorers. Meanwhile, the pace trio of Cummins, Starc and Hazlewood have continued to lead the Australian bowling attack, while wrist-spinner Adam Zampa is currently the tournament’s second highest wicket-taker with 19.

Afghanistan, on the other hand, have had a dream run at this year’s Cricket World Cup and currently sit 6th on the World Cup points table with 8 points from their 7 matches so far.

Often renowned for their spin bowling, Afghanistan have been clicking in all departments during their WC 2023 campaign, handing defeats to some of the tournament’s biggest names, including England and Pakistan.

The Afghans will be looking to prove their mettle in their two back-to-back matches, first against Australia and then against a dominant South Africa side in their next match, as they look to progress to the semi-finals of the tournament.

Australia and Afghanistan World Cup squad: 

Australia squad: Pat Cummins (c), Steve Smith, Alex Carey, Josh Inglis, Sean Abbott, Cameron Green, Josh Hazlewood, Travis Head, Marnus Labuschagne, Mitch Marsh, Glenn Maxwell, Marcus Stoinis, David Warner, Adam Zampa, Mitchell Starc.
