Australia vs Afghanistan will play the 39th ICC World Cup match on November 7, 2023, at Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai. It is not going to be an easy match for the Australian team because Afghanistan is on a winning run, and both teams will fight to qualify for the semi-finals.
Australia has been one of the best teams after suffering from two losses at the start of the World Cup because they are defeating their opponents quite comfortably. They won their last match against England by 33 runs to keep themself ahead of Afghanistan in the running for the semi-final.
Afghanistan showed the world that no one should treat them as a weak team or walkover team in the World Cup because they’re in the fifth spot in the tournament and will be looking to secure their place in the semi-finals. They won their last match against the Netherlands by seven wickets, which made it their third comfortable chasing win in the tournament, which clearly shows their skill in chasing the total.
Mohammad Nabi bowled an amazing spell, picking up four wickets, which helped his team to restrict the Netherlands side to just 179 runs and gave them a better chance to chase down the total, which they did pretty easily in 31.3 overs.
The battle is heating up after Naveen-ul-haq posted a story about the Australia cricket board refusing to let Afghanistan participate in the bilateral series because the Afghanistan board refused to allow the Afghanistan women’s team to participate in the World Cup last year.

Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai, has been one of the high-run scoring grounds, and in the match between India and Sri Lanka, there were a lot of sixes being hit. Still, in the 2nd innings, the Indian bowlers got 1.4-degree movement with the ball that wiped out the whole Sri Lanka team. There was a dew in the second innings when India was bowling, but before it affected the ball, they got all batters out, but anyone who wins the toss should bowl first.
Team Preview Of Australia
The Australian team has been in great form, but they do need to improve their bowling unit a bit because the experienced pacers were looking quite tired. However, Adam Zampa has been fantastic for the team, summing up their bowling unit.
Important players for the Australia Team in the match against Afghanistan
1- Travis Head did not have a good match against England, but he might be going to smash Afghanistan bowlers, who are not as strong as England’s pace bowling lineup. He averages 42 in 60 ODI, but his striking can be lethal.
2- David Warner has an average of 145 against Afghanistan, scoring one century and half-century, which clearly can hurt the Afghan team if they do not get rid of him early.
3- Adam Zampa is the leading wicket-taker in the tournament with 19 wickets in 7 matches and can take a few more against Afghanistan.
Team Preview Of Afghanistan
Afghanistan will face their most formidable challenge in the past four matches against Australia bowling, who will come hard on them. Rahmat Shah and Hashmatullah Shahidi have been playing the best cricket in the World Cup.
Important players for the Afghanistan Team in the match against Australia
1- Rahmat Shah once again showed why he had been given the number three role in the team, which is given to the best batter in the team because he is scoring in every last four matches. He scored 264 runs in 7 matches with an average of 37.71.
2- Hashmatullah Shahidi has been playing the captain role quite amazingly by scoring in most of the matches and finishing the matches by himself. Not getting out in the last three matches clearly shows his skill while chasing. He has a 75.40 average because he got not out three times in the last 7 matches.
3- Azmatullah Omarzai has been one of the best all-rounders that Afghanistan found, and he is delivering it quite amazingly. He is scoring runs and also taking wickets in most of the matches, which makes the life of bowling and batting unit easy.
