ENG vs AFG Match Prediction: Who will triumph? Get insights on the potential winner and key players.

Afghanistan are heading into this game on the back of consecutive losses against Bangladesh and England. Their only World Cup win was against Scotland in 2015. The Afghans are yet to beat a top side in World Cups. The campaign only gets tough for them as they face England, New Zealand, and Pakistan in their next three games. 

England, on the other hand, is fresh from their big win against Bangladesh, They lost to New Zealand by nine wickets in Ahmedabad which dented their NRR. With the 137-run win over Bangladesh, they have tried to make up for it as much as they can. Another big win against Afghanistan in the ENG vs AFG match will help them bridge the gap and stay within the top four.
