Australia will be looking to kickstart their campaign with a win against Afghanistan in order to defend the trophy. They have been increasing in confidence coming into the tournament as they are on an eight-game winning streak after series wins against India and Pakistan. Although they have a new coach, new federation chairman after the ball-tampering controversy, captain Aaron Finch would be hopeful that his in-form players, like Usman Khawaja and Pat Cummins show up on the big stage without any mental hindrance, with the help of likes of the experienced David Warner, Steve Smith and pacy X-factor, Mitchel Starc.
Although Afghanistan’s only win at a World Cup to date was against Scotland at Dunedin four years ago, they won’t be flustered by their opponents owing to their story of growth and the fact that they boast world’s two of the best all-rounders, namely Rashid Khan and Mohammad Nabi. Although they have a lack of depth and experience at the highest level, their recent series win against West Indies will provide them with much-needed inspiration before appearing on such a big stage.
