Prediction Based on Performance

As the match approaches, the cricket prediction leans in favor of England given their recent performances. Looking at the last five games, England’s performance has been stellar. They have won three of the last five matches with a significant run difference, proving their strong batting and bowling lineup. Their victory over New Zealand by a whopping 181 runs showcases their capability to dominate the field. Meanwhile, the match with Ireland was a no-result, which does not impact their winning ratio.

On the contrary, the Afghanistan team has suffered continuous losses in their last five matches. They were defeated by Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, and thrice by Pakistan, which points to a struggling form. The team has an uphill task, especially when it comes to handling pressure situations.

Considering the current form and depth of both teams, the English team seems to have an edge over Afghanistan. The batting strength, which includes players like Jos Buttler and Ben Stokes, coupled with the seasoned spin attack of Adil Rashid, makes England a formidable opponent. On the contrary, Afghanistan, despite having talented players like Rashid Khan, seems to be falling short in terms of overall team synergy and performance.

Information About Injuries in Teams 


Ben Stokes was a major doubt for the tournament opener against New Zealand due to a hip injury. He missed England’s final warm-up match against Bangladesh. Even if he managed to play in the opener, there were concerns about his ability to last throughout the gruelling schedule of this seven-week tournament.


Fast bowler Naveen-ul-Haq and Azmatullah Omarzai were injured and could not participate in the tournament.
