Match Preview

In the 14th clash of the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2024, New Zealand will be up against Afghanistan. The match is set to take place on Saturday, June 8, at the Providence Stadium in Guyana. While New Zealand will play their first game of the tournament, Afghanistan have already played their season opener, where they will be up against Uganda. The match saw the Rashid Khan-led side taking down their counterparts by a huge margin of 125 runs. 

While the Afghans will aim to continue their winning momentum, the Kiwis will aim for a memorable opening to their season. 

Toss Possibility

New Zealand and Afghanistan have been up against each other once in the shortest format back in 2021. In that game, Afghanistan’s then skipper Mohammad Nabi won the toss over New Zealand’s Kane Williamson. Considering this, we think Afghanistan’s now-skipper Rashid Khan would be favourable to win the toss in the upcoming game over his rival skipper Williamson. 

Win Possibility

The upcoming clash between New Zealand and Afghanistan in the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2024 is going to be exciting and intense. Afghanistan heads into the game on the back of an easy and convincing win over Uganda and will come off as a strong contender. With names like Rahmanullah Gurbaz, Ibrahim Zadran and Fazalhaq Farooqi’s standout performances, the South Asian side will wish to replicate their previous performances. 

On the other hand, New Zealand will enter into the competition as one of the strongest and most formidable contenders. The team has a unique combination of veterans and promising talents. Veteran Kane Williamson is leading the team, and they aim to make their mark in the competition. Apart from this, names like Trent Boult, Daryl Mitchell and Rachin Ravindra add to the side's strength. 

While Afghanistan is in their momentum, the Black Caps are likely to come off as a formidable force to win the upcoming game.

Predicted Powerplay Score and Average First Inning Score

One of the most popular cricketing venues in the West Indies, the Providence Stadium in Guyana is set to host the clash between New Zealand and Afghanistan. The venue has hosted a total of 30 T20 matches and has a first-inning average of 124. Considering this, we think the first-inning score in the upcoming game is expected to be around 150-160 and powerplay can hover around 40-45. However, the toss is going to play a major role in the forthcoming game and the predicted scores.
