AFGH vs NZ Dream11 Prediction | Afghanistan vs New Zealand Match Preview | Fantasy Team & Team News

New Zealand is on a roll currently, winning 2 out of 2 games. They will look to improve in the upcoming matches versus some of the other top dogs of this World Cup. Ross Taylor has been their best performing batsmen, thrashing 82 runs in the one innings he has batted in. New Zealand hasn’t had good partnerships between wickets, which should be their priority especially because a lot of wickets have fallen in this edition of the World Cup.
Afghanistan is at the bottom of the table, losing both the games they’ve played. The Gulbadin Naib led side has a good bowling attack but their batsmen are very weak and in their current form won’t be able to support their bowlers. Afghanistan has a good array of spinners and this should pose a threat for New Zealand as they struggled against the Bangladeshi spinners in their last match.
While New Zealand has the superior batting and bowling lineups, Afghanistan cannot be neglected. They have had good individual performances and hopefully, are able to mesh together for this match.
