The 13th fixture of the ODI World Cup 2023 will have reigning champions, England taking on Afghanistan. After kicking off their World Cup campaign on a defeating note, the English cricket team went on to secure a victory against Bangladesh. Afghanistan, on the other hand, Afghanistan haven't been able to secure any victory as of now. After losing their first match against Bangladesh, the Hashmatullah Shahidi-led side went down to India in their second match in the tournament.
Both England and Afghanistan have played two matches so far in the ongoing ICC event. While the Afghanistan skipper Hashmatullah Shahidi won one out of two tosses, the English skipper Jos Buttler hasn't been able to win any of the tosses. Considering this, we think the Three Lions skipper will finally have luck on his side at the Arun Jaitley Stadium and he will come on top of the toss war.
England and Afghanistan have faced each other twice in the 50-over format as of now. In both the matches, the 2019 World Cup winner have dominated their Bangla counterparts. Not only this but if we consider the ongoing season of the biggest ICC tournament, it seems that England have decided to make a comeback after facing a defeat in the season opener. Bangladesh, on the flip side, haven't been able to win any of the matches so far. This speaks volumes about their individual performances. In addition, England is considered one of the strongest teams, and we think they will play like this in their next game and defeat Bangladesh to extend their tally to 2-1.
Predicted Powerplay Score and Average First Inning Score
The Arun Jaitley Stadium in the capital city of India has been slated to host a total of five matches in the ongoing season of the ODI World Cup. If we take a look at the overall ODI score of the venue, it has hosted a total of 29 50-over matches over the years. The average first-inning score of the venue is 230 with a powerplay score of 40.1. Therefore, we think that the first-inning score of the forthcoming match would somewhere be around 260-280, while the powerplay score is expected to hover between 38-45.
