Head-To-Head Record, Pitch Report, Weather Forecast, Playing XI


After thumping defending champions England, Afghanistan will square off against 2019 World Cup runners-up New Zeland at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai’s Chepauk. With three world-class spinners in their team — Rashid Khan, Mujeeb Ur Rahman and Nabi — Afghanistan will hope for more success on a dry Chennai pitch that is expected to turn. 

On the other hand, New Zealand will hope to continue their winning streak even as their captain Kane Williamson has been ruled out of the match due to an injury to his left thumb. On the brighter side, New Zealand have all their bases covered, with their top order firing in every game and an incisive bowling unit.
