NZ vs AFG Match Preview

New Zealand have got off to a great start to their World Cup campaign. The team defeated England in the first game and then backed it up with wins over Netherlands and Bangladesh. The previous two games were easy for New Zealand but the same can’t be said about their next game against Afghanistan.

The Afghans pulled off a remarkable win against England in Delhi and given that they will be playing New Zealand in Chennai, they have a good chance of pulling of a second upset. It will be interesting to see, however, on which surface the match is played. If the game is played on pitch where India took on Australia, Afghanistan will have a greater chance of winnings. The second game between New Zealand and Bangladesh was played on a different strip and it did not help the spinners much so a lot will depend of the surface these teams play.

Let’s take a look at the dream11 team prediction for this match.

NZ vs AFG ODI Match Pitch Report and Weather Report

Pitch Report

There are two pitches at the ground. One offers a lot of help for the spinners while the other one is good for batting. It is not confirmed on what surface the teams will play. If the pitch that was used in India vs Australia match is taken, Afghanistan will be happy and if the second one is used, New Zealand will be the happier side.

Weather Report

The weather will be hot and humid, with temperature rising to high 30s. The high humidity can take a toll on players.

NZ vs AFG Dream11 Top Picks

Devon Conway

Devon Conway has batted beautifully so far. He is New Zealand’s leading run scorer so far, with 229 runs in 3 matches, including a century.

Rachin Ravindra

Rachin Ravindra has shown great batting potential in the ongoing World Cup. He scored a century against England in the first game. He is more than handy with the ball and will enjoy the conditions in Chennai.

Mitchell Santner

Spinners will be the real game changers in Chennai and New Zealand have a great bowler in Santner. The spinner is the joint leading wicket-taker in the tournament so far, with eight wickets in three matches.

Rahmanullah Gurbaz

Gurbaz is Afghanistan’s best batter and runs from him are a must for Afghanistan to beat New Zealand. Gurbaz played a match-winning knock of 80 against England and helped the team reach a good score. A similar show is needed from him in Chennai.

Rashid Khan

On the turning tracks of Chennai, there is no bigger match-winner for Afghanistan than Rashid Khan. Rashid along with Mujeeb will hold aces for Afghanistan against New Zealand in Chennai.
