ENG vs AFG Betting Tips

  • Dawid Malan has hit exactly 1200 ODI runs from 23 innings in the format and he hit his sixth century in the win over Bangladesh on Tuesday. He averages a remarkable 63.14 from his last seven ODIs with his overall average in this format almost identical at 63.15. The left-hander is our pick for England’s highest run scorer against Afghanistan. There was quite a bit of surprise when Reece Topley was left out of the XI for England’s opening match after he had impressed in home ODIs this summer. He took 4-43 against Bangladesh and we expect the opening bowler to be England’s top wicket taker in Match 13.
  • Hashmatullah Shahidi made his 17th ODI half-century in the defeat to India but impressed many pundits and opposing players with his calmness at the crease and range of shots. His confidence levels seemed to increase as the innings progressed and the Afghanistan skipper is our tip for their highest run scorer against England. Rashid Khan was the only one of Afghanistan’s six man bowling unit to pick up a wicket against India and he finished with figures of 2-57. Some of England’s batters look a little unsure against top quality spin and we are backing Rashid to be Afghanistan’s top wicket taker in this clash.
  • There are very few other ODI batters who are as consistent as Dawid Malan and we recommend choosing him to hit over 31.5 runs in this match.

ENG vs AFG ODI Match Prediction & Betting Tips, Cricket World Cup 2023

England and Afghanistan meet on Sunday in Match 13 of the 2023 Cricket World Cup at the Arun Jaitley Stadium, Delhi. The 2019 Cricket World Cup champions, England, lost their opening match of this year’s tournament by 9 wickets to New Zealand but bounced back with a 137 run victory over Bangladesh on Tuesday. Afghanistan have played two and lost two in this campaign with defeats coming by 6 wickets against Bangladesh in Match 3 and by 8 wickets against India in Match 9. Read on as we preview this clash. The day-night match gets underway at 14:00 local time.

England needed to show character in their second match of the tournament and did so producing an excellent performance with both bat and ball against Bangladesh. It would be a big surprise if England did not make it two wins from three in this game.

Afghanistan have some excellent young players in their squad but overall they continue to struggle when they come up against the best teams in the world. We expect them to struggle against England although they may well cause a few problems with their bowling attack.

ENG vs AFG Match Toss Prediction

Two of the last three ODIs, including India’s win over Afghanistan earlier this week, have been won by the team fielding first at this venue. We predict that both captains will choose to field first if they win the toss ahead of this match.

ENG vs AFG Pitch Report

This is an excellent batting track at the Arun Jaitley Stadium, as seen by India chasing down their target of 273 with 15 overs remaining against Afghanistan. There is good pace in the wicket for the quick bowlers to exploit.

Delhi Weather Report

Humidity is not a big issue in Delhi with the forecast for Sunday a mixture of sunshine spells and light cloud. The temperature is expected to be in the mid-low 30s across this match.

England Team News & Playing 11

England Team News

After bouncing back with a convincing win over Bangladesh, we are not expecting any changes to England’s side for this game of World Cup 2023. That means that Moeen Ali will remain on the sidelines and Chris Woakes will play in spite of having an illness in recent days.

England Team Key Players

  • Dawid Malan - The left-handed opener came into the tournament in strong form and picked up another Player of the Match Award in the win over Bangladesh with an innings which included 21 boundaries.
  • Joe Root - The right-handed top order batter struggled for form in the home ODIs against New Zealand during September. However, he has hit 77 and 82 from his opening two fixtures in this tournament.
  • Jonny Bairstow - The right hand attacking batsman has got starts in both the matches but failed to convert. Considering the opposition he might go big this time and can score more than 50 runs in this game.

England Key Batsmen Stats

Dawid Malan 23 23 1200 140 63.15 98.44 6 5
Joe Root 164 153 6405 133* 49.26 87.04 16 38
  • Mark Wood - The right-arm fast bowler was too accurate and quick for Bangladesh’s batters in the match on Tuesday. He ended the game with figures of 1-29 from his full allocation of ten overs.
  • Reece Topley - The tall left-arm opening bowler bowled England’s only maiden in the win over Bangladesh. Alongside this, he also dismissed Tanzid Hasan, Najmul Hossain Shanto, Shakib Al Hasan and Mushfiqur Rahim.
  • Adil Rashid - The leg spinner is good with his variations and has been impressive in his ODIO career. He will be required to contain the runs in the middle phase as all the matches played in Delhi have been high scoring.

Afghanistan Team News & Playing 11

Afghanistan Team News

Although Afghanistan were outplayed by India in the second half of their clash on Wednesday, the team selected by coach Jonathan Trott for that match is widely acknowledged as their strongest. There are no injuries in the team ahead of this game.

Afghanistan Team Key Players

  • Hashmatullah Shahidi - The left-handed skipper was very impressive on this pitch against a very strong Indian bowling attack in the last match and has been in good ODI form over the last month.
  • Azmatullah Omarzai - The 23 year old all-rounder produced an excellent rebuilding innings alongside his captain against India in Match 9. He hit four sixes in the innings, three more than any of his team-mates.
  • Ibrahim Zadran - He is the batsman who averaghes more than 50 in his short ODI careen and has bveen scoring runs consistently. Afghanistan will look to him play as an anchor and play a long innings.


Afghanistan Key Batsmen Stats

Player Mat (ODI) Inns Runs HS Ave SR 100s 50s
Hashmatullah Shahidi 66 66 1873 97* 32.85 67.42 0 17
Azmatullah Omarzai 15 10 21 62 27.62 83.08 0 2
  • Rashid Khan - The world class spinner picked up both of Afghanistan’s wickets against India. He may well be brought into the attack earlier in this match as his dismissals of Ishan Kishan and Rohit Sharma came too late on Wednesday.
  • Naveen-ul-Haq - The right-arm medium fast bowler was the most economical of Afghanistan’s bowling attack in Match 9. He went wicketless in the last game but still has an ODI strike-rate of 28.8.
  • FazalHaq Farooqi - Farooqi has not been impressive so far and has gone for runs with only wicket to his name. He can be a game changer for Afghanistan in this match.

England vs Afghanistan Betting Odds

The 2019 Cricket World Cup champions, England, are the strong favourites to win this match and can be backed at 1.09 with the bookies. Afghanistan are 6.50 to get the victory.

Who will win England vs Afghanistan ODI Match?

Afghanistan had to work really hard to post what looked like a competitive total against India. In reality, very few of Afghanistan’s players would get in the England side and it is England who are the top team for this match.

ENG vs AFG Top Team Batsmen

Our batting selections are Dawid Malan, Joe Root, Jonny Bairstow and Jos Buttler for England. Captain Buttler averages 41.40 with 4886 from 144 innings in this format. He has scored 43 against New Zealand and 20 against Bangladesh but will be expecting to make a big score in the coming matches. Right-handed opener Bairstow has hit 85 runs so far in the tournament including a 59-ball 52 against Bangladesh in Dharamsala. He hit eight fours in his last innings and the 34 year old has hit 11 ODI centuries including his top score in this format of 141 not out. 

Hashmatullah Shahidi, Azmatullah Omarzai, Ibrahim Zadran and Rahmanullah Gurbaz are our batting recommendations for Afghanistan. Keeper-batter Gurbaz hit a six and three fours at the top of the order against India’s top level bowling attack in Match 9. The 21 year old plays without fear and has a top ODI score of 151 with seven scores of 50+ from 28 innings. Opener Zadran hit four fours against India but will be disappointed to have been dismissed with only 22 runs from 28 balls on the board. He comes into this game with an ODI average of 50.26 and is 45 runs from bringing up 1000 runs in this format.

ENG vs AFG Top Team Bowlers

Our bowling recommendations are Mark Wood, Reece Topley, Chris Woakes and Adil Rashid for England. Right-arm leg-spinner Rashid produced an excellent googly to dismiss Mahedi Hasan in the win over Bangladesh. He has taken 185 ODI wickets across his career to add to his 60 in Tests and 98 in T20Is. Bowling all-rounder Woakes had an excellent second half of the Test summer during the Men’s Ashes and picked up the wickets of Litton Das and Mehidy Hasan Miraz in the last match. His best figures in ODIs are 6-45 and he has taken 165 wickets from his 112 ODI matches since his debut in January 2011.

With the ball, Rashid Khan, Fazalhaq Farooqi, Naveen-ul-Haq and Mujeeb Ur Rahman are our tips for Afghanistan. Tall off-spinner Rahman has taken 93 ODI wickets with best figures of 5-50 from across his 67 matches with the ball in this format. Although this pitch has bounce and pace for the quick bowlers, Rahman’s height means that he could also have joy in this game. Left-arm fast medium bowler Farooqi has now taken 60 international wickets from 47 games. The 23 year old has good fitness and stamina so is able to come back and bowl with good speed in his second, third and fourth spells.

🏆 England vs Afghanistan Prediction

England have been convincing winners over Afghanistan in both of their previous matches in this format and we are expecting more of the same in this game. If Afghanistan can take some early wickets in this match then they will have a chance but if England are able to set a strong platform at the top of the order, like they did against Bangladesh, then it will be very tough. Our prediction is for England to come out on top again but for Afghanistan’s top order pair to cause some problems with their attacking intent. We are backing England to win on Sunday.
