Australia vs Afghanistan Predictions


The pitch will play a crucial role in this contest, but Australia remains huge favourites. Considering their form, I can’t see Afghanistan getting a positive result unless the pitch takes some turn. I am backing Travis Head in the run scoring markets.

  • Australia have won their last 5 matches.
  • Australia’s Travis Head has scored 34, 34*, 68 & 31 runs in his last 4 matches.
  • Afghanistan have lost their last 2 matches.

Head to Head


Australia beat Afghanistan in their only previous T20I match by four runs in 2022.

Afghanistan Form


Afghanistan have done well to get this far, winning three of their five matches. That victory over New Zealand in the group stage was crucial in getting them to the Super 8.

In their first Super Eight game, Afghanistan however came up short against India. India batted first in Bridgetown, scoring 181 runs as Afghanistan bowlers struggled to contain them despite taking regular wickets.

In response, Afghanistan could only muster 134 runs with Azmatullah Omarzai top scoring with 26.

Afghanistan Injuries & Team News


With two successive defeats, Afghanistan may need to change things up a bit. Their main concern will be the lack of runs from batsmen.

Australia Form


Australia look in imperious form thus far at the World Cup. They are unbeaten, winning all five games to date.

In their opening Super 8 fixture, the Aussies beat Bangladesh by eight wickets in a rain affected game. Bangladesh scored 140 runs batting first, which saw Pat Cummins take 3-29.

The rain changed the total for Australia who managed 100 in 11.2 overs with David Warner hitting 53 off 35 balls. Travis Head continued his good form with 31 runs.

The Aussies look a slick machine at the moment. They could remain unchanged.

Verdict

Travis Head is backed in the run scoring markets for Australia.
