West Indies vs Afghanistan Predictions


Very little is riding on this game with both sides already qualified. The pitch is St Lucia has been friendly to batsmen in the tournament, so we may actually see some runs this time around.

With conditions good for batting, the West Indies are comfortable favourites to win this game. Nicholas Pooran is backed in the run scoring markets.

  • West Indies have won their last 3 matches.
  • West Indies’ Nicholas Pooran has scored the most runs for his team in T20 cricket since January 2023.
  • Afghanistan have won their last 3 matches.
  • Afghanistan’s Gulbadin Naib scored 49* in his last match.
  • Afghanistan have won their last 2 T20I matches against West Indies.

Head to Head


West Indies have won three of their last five T20I matches against Afghanistan, but the last two went in favour of Afghanistan. They last played in 2019.

West Indies Form


West Indies have already confirmed their place in the Super 8’s with three wins from three. This game will decide who tops Group C.

Last time out, the West Indies batted first against New Zealand, scoring 149 runs in their 20 overs. After losing early wickets, the Windies were in big trouble at 30-5 before Sherfane Rutherford scored 68 off 39 balls to rescue the hosts.

Alzarri Joseph then starred with the ball, taking 4-19 in four overs. The Black Caps could only reach 136 in their 20 overs, securing a 13-run win for the West Indies.

Considering qualification is complete, the Windies may opt to give some players a run.

Afghanistan Form


Afghanistan, like their opponents, have already qualified for the Super 8 stage with three wins from three games. They currently top the table on net run rate.

In their last game, Afghanistan thrashed Papua New Guinea by seven wickets. Fazalhaq Farooqi took 3-16 as Afghanistan bowled them out for 95 runs.

The pitch was not easy to bat on, but Afghanistan had more than enough quality to see them through. Gulbadin Naib top scored with 49 runs as they chased the total in just over 15 overs.

Afghanistan Injuries & Team News


With qualification secured, I wouldn’t be surprised to see three or four changes to the Afghanistan side.

Verdict

The West Indies are backed to win with Nicholas Pooran tipped to score big. For Afghanistan, Gulbadin Naib was in good form last time out.
