The Afghan team is at the bottom of the points table as they have lost all their four matches. Consequently, they would aim to turn the tables in their fifth match. We take a look at Afghanistan’s Predicted Playing XI and Analysis.

On the other hand, England has been a dominant force in the ongoing World Cup. The hosts have come up with complete performance and they would look to continue their dominance against Afghanistan. England has won three out of the four matches they have played.

Here is Afghanistan’s Predicted Playing XI.

Hazratullah Zazai

The southpaw batsman got off to another good start as he scored 22 runs. However, the left-hander once again failed to convert it to a big score.

The talisman all-rounder hasn’t been at his best in the ongoing World Cup. A lot is expected from Nabi and would like to stand tall to all the challenges.

The all-rounder has failed to lead his troops with confidence. Naib has been under the microscope for his captaincy and he would look to inspire his team.

Rashid Khan

The pacer was able to keep the runs at bay. However, he was also not able to get among the wickets. Thus, he would like to hit the straps.
