ENG vs AFG Betting Tips

  • Jos Buttler impressed in the IT20 series against Australia earlier this month. He attacked all the bowlers from the start and he is our tip for England’s highest run scorer against Afghanistan. With the ball, pace bowler Mark Wood impressed in the series in Pakistan and against Australia and is our pick for England’s top wicket taker in this match.
  • Rahmanullah Gurbaz has hit five half-centuries in this format and the 22 year old opener is well worth backing as Afghanistan’s highest run scorer in this game. Rashid Khan has 118 wickets in IT20s and the leg-spinner is a strong choice for Afghanistan’s top wicket taker against England.
  • We recommend backing Jos Buttler to hit the most 6s in this match.

ENG vs AFG Match Prediction & Betting Tips, T20 World Cup 2022

England take on Afghanistan at the Perth Stadium on Saturday evening in the second game of Group 1 in the Super 12 stage of the 2022 T20 World Cup. England reached the semi-final in last year’s tournament with Afghanistan finishing in fourth place in Group 2 in 2021. Read on as we preview this game. The match gets underway at 19:00 local time.

England have not had their best year of IT20 cricket but they seem to be peaking at the right time. They have beaten Australia twice and Pakistan twice in four of their last five matches.

Afghanistan began the 2022 Asia Cup with two successive wins but then lost the following three matches. They can be inconsistent at times and it will require one of their best ever performances to beat England.

England Team News & Playing 11

ENG Team News

Jonny Bairstow was ruled out of this tournament in September when he sustained a knee injury whilst playing golf and he was joined on the sidelines by left-arm pace bowler Reece Topley who returned home on Thursday with an ankle injury.

ENG Key Players

  • Jos Buttler- the right handed opener, wicket-keeper and captain has plenty to deal with. However, he is a very calm character and has a top score of 101 not out in this format.
  • Moeen Ali- the all-rounder was England’s captain for their seven match series with Pakistan. He impressed with his late innings clean hitting.
  • Mark Wood- the right-arm fast bowler will be one of the quickest bowlers on show in this tournament. He has taken nine wickets from his last three IT20s.

ENG Team Form

England have won four IT20 matches in a row with their last game ending as a no-result.

Afghanistan Team News & Playing 11

AFG Team News

There have been no injuries or player withdrawals from Afghanistan ahead of T20 World Cup 2022. They have a very similar side to what we saw in the UAE during the 2021 T20 World Cup and the bowlers will come into this match with additional big game experience than they had last year.

AFG Key Players

  • Rahmanullah Gurbaz- the keeper-batter hit 84 runs from 45 balls against eventual champions in the 2022 Asia Cup. He is a naturally attacking player.
  • Mohammad Nabi- the vastly experienced all-rounder and captain has taken 83 IT20 wickets alongside hitting four half-centuries in this format.
  • Rashid Khan- the leg-spinner took eight wickets during the 2021 T20 World Cup including figures of 4-9 against Scotland.

AFG Team Form

Afghanistan are looking to avoid their fourth successive defeat in this format.

Afghanistan Predicted Playing 11
