The live cricket streaming international cricket is England v Afghanistan, 2019 ICC Cricket World Cup.
June 18, England v Afghanistan, 24th match, 2019 ICC Cricket World Cup, Emirates Old Trafford, Manchester
In all likelihood, Afghanistan are already out of contention for the semi finals as five wins alone are not likely to help them progress further. Although they would want to display their ability by opening their winning account, that would be one hell of a task for them against a team like England, which is one of the contenders for the title.
England are with three wins and one loss from four matches and would be looking to jump to the top of the points table with a win against Afghanistan. They are likely to rest both Jason Roy and Eoin Morgan as this is a relatively easier game for them. James Vince is likely to open the batting along with Jonny Bairstow. Moeen Ali will make the playing XI in place of the skipper.
Afghanistan will continue with the opening combination of Hazratullah Zazai and Noor Ali Zadran. They gave ex-captain Asghar Afghan an opportunity in the last match against South Africa and are likely to stick with him.
Mohammad Nabi and Rashid Khan as always will be the leaders of Afghanistan bowling pack and will get support from pacers Aftab Alam and Hamid Hassan.
The match will be played at the Old Trafford stadium in Manchester which was also the venue for the recent clash between India and Pakistan. The pitch is an absolute belter and has a lot of runs to offer. However, it will suit Afghanistan more as it is dry underneath and will assist the spinners.
Let's have a look at the probable playing XI of both teams:
England- James Vince, Jonny Bairstow, Joe Root, Jos Buttler, Ben Stokes, Moeen Ali, Chris Woakes, Liam Plunkett, Jofra Archer, Adil Rashid, Mark Wood
Afghanistan- Hazratullah Zazai, Noor Ali Zadran, Rahmat Shah, Hashmatullah Shahidi, Asghar Afghan, Gulbadin Naib, Mohammad Nabi, Ikram Ali khil, Rashid Khan, Aftab Alam, Hamid Hassan
