Defending champions Australia are now in desperation mode. Should New Zealand beat Ireland in the earlier game, the hosts will need a big win over Afghanistan and hope England either lose or win narrowly against Sri Lanka tomorrow.

Here is a scenario. If Australia bat first and score 180, they will need to bowl Afghanistan for 120 to go past England on net run rate. However, Australia’s +0.555 won’t be much higher than England’s +0.547, so they need an even bigger win to put some pressure on Jos Buttler’s side.

Truth be told, it has been an ordinary tournament by Australia. After the horror (and potentially very costly) opening night against New Zealand, Aaron Finch’s team were unable to achieve the net run rate boosts they could have against Sri Lanka and Ireland. Now, they will need to turn it on against a high-quality Afghan spin attack, led by Rashid Khan who is one of Adelaide’s most favourite sons.

In addition to the equations, Australia have injury concerns. Aaron Finch and Tim David are in doubt. But, if Cameron Green can get the hosts off to a flyer, the home side can go from there. If the Afghanistan spinners can get a foothold, and more importantly if the batsmen can hold their own, a historic win for Mohammad Nabi’s team is not out of the picture as Australia must go hard.

AUS vs AFG Possible Playing XI

Aaron Finch sat out Australia’s final training session after twinging his hamstring against Ireland. The Australia captain is unlikely to play. Matthew Wade will captain should Finch be ruled out.

Tim David is also in doubt with a hamstring concern. Steve Smith could come in.

Australia: 1. Aaron Finch/Cameron Green, 2. David Warner, 3. Mitchell Marsh, 4. Steve Smith/Tim David, 5. Glenn Maxwell, 6. Marcus Stoinis, 7. Matthew Wade (c & wk), 8. Pat Cummins, 9. Mitchell Starc, 10. Adam Zampa, 11. Josh Hazlewood

Rashid Khan injured his knee in the game against Sri Lanka, but he should play in this match.

Afghanistan: 1. Rahmanullah Gurbaz (wk), 2. Usman Ghani, 3. Ibrahim Zadran, 4. Najibullah Zadran, 5. Mohammad Nabi (c), 6. Gulbadin Naib, 7. Rashid Khan, 8. Azmatullah Omarzai, 9. Mujeeb Ur Rahman, 10. Fareed Ahmad, 11. Fazalhaq Farooqi

Key Players to Watch/Key Stats

Australia:

  • If Aaron Finch is ruled out, it paves the way for Cameron Green. In seven T20Is this year, Green has smashed 136 runs at a strike rate of 174.4.
  • Australia needs David Warner to deliver. He loves batting at Adelaide. In six T20s on the ground, the left-hander has hammered 306 runs at an average of 76.50 and strike rate of 151.49.
  • If Australia is to win big, they need Glenn Maxwell to fire. In ten T20s at Adelaide, Maxwell has scored 252 runs at a strike rate of 160.51.
  • Marcus Stoinis has smashed 59* (18) and 35 (25) in his past two matches.
  • Josh Hazlewood has taken four wickets in two T20s at Adelaide. In 31 T20Is since the start of 2021, Hazlewood has taken 47 wickets at an average of 17.4 and strike rate of 14.5.
  • Adam Zampa in T20s at Adelaide: 13 inns, 14 wickets, avg. 25.21, SR 21.71.

Afghanistan:

  • Rahmanullah Gurbaz can take the game away from Australia. In all T20s this year, Gurbaz has scored 973 runs at an average of 28.63 and strike rate of 155.18.
  • Ibrahim Zadran has made a 20+ score in each of his past six T20Is.
  • Najibullah Zadran is Afghanistan’s leading run-scorer in T20Is this year: 16 inns, 358 runs, avg. 27.53, SR 145.52.
  • If Green opens for Australia (dismissed five times in powerplay this year), Fazalhaq Farooqi or Mujeeb Ur Rahman can take advantage. Out of Mujeeb’s 16 T20I wickets this year, 11 have been right handers, including a cracker to dismiss Kusal Mendis last match. In the powerplay, Farooqi has taken nine wickets at an economy of 5.61 in T20Is this year.
  • Rashid Khan returns to Adelaide. The legspinner has a great record on this ground in the BBL, with 44 scalps in 29 matches at an average of 17.02 and economy of 6.57.

Other Stats and Facts

  • This will be the first T20 International between Australia and Afghanistan
  • Expect Afghanistan to test Mitch Marsh with spin. Against right-arm offspin and legspin this year, Marsh has been dismissed three times in 36 balls (45 runs).
  • Mitch Marsh in T20s at Adelaide: 6 inns, 170 runs, avg. 56.67, SR 137.10, two 50s.
  • Matthew Wade strikes at 176.56 in eight innings at Adelaide (226 runs, avg. 37.67).
  • Mohammad Nabi in T20s at Adelaide: 5 inns, 144 runs, avg. 48.00, SR 128.57.

Adelaide Oval Pitch Report and Weather

Conditions are expected to be cool but clear in Adelaide on Friday. As a result, there may be some movement with the new ball, which both seam attacks will look to exploit. But, as India and Bangladesh showed, you can enjoy some good moments with the bat on an easy-paced pitch with short square boundaries.

The average first innings score in the last nine T20s at Adelaide is 157.11. The team batting first has won five of those matches.

T20 World Cup 2022 Match 38: AUS vs AFG Match Prediction – Who Will Win?

Australia will likely win this match, but Afghanistan can cause a few issues. A big net run rate boost is not certain for Australia.
