Match Preview

In the 29th game of the ongoing T20 World Cup, Afghanistan will take on Papua New Guinea in an exciting contest. The game is set to be played on Friday, June 14, at the Brian Lara Academy in Trinidad. Seeded in Group C, Afghanistan are on the top-most position on the standings with four points, whereas an inexperienced PNG haven’t been able to open their account. They are currently  at one of the bottom-most spots and are in dire need of registering a win to keep their hopes alive in the ongoing tournament. 

Toss Prediction

Afghanistan and Papua New Guinea have faced each other once in the shortest format. The match that took place during the ICC World T20 qualifiers in 2015 saw PNG skipper winning the toss. Considering this, we think Afghan skipper Rashid Khan would be favourite to win toss over PNG’s Assad Vala. 

Win Possibility

Pool C leaders Afghanistan will be up against PNG in another exciting match of the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2024. Afghanistan have displayed remarkable prowess and emerged victorious in both their matches. On the other hand, PNG couldn’t stand both their past rivals and failed to register even one win so far. At the cusp of elimination, PNG need to register one win to keep their hopes alive. 

As we earlier mentioned, PNG and AFG have been up against each other once in 2015. The game saw Afghanistan registering an easy win over their counterparts. In addition, if we look at the overall records, Afghanistan are far more experienced and stronger than their counterparts, which make them easy winners in the upcoming match.
