No matter how the pitch at Chennai would behave in the first half to second half, it’s a bat first track. Chennai is regarded as the rank turner and could also help New Zealand, with their spin attack considering scoreboard pressure. Meanwhile, it’s an advantage Afghanistan in Chennai and whenever a team looks tough against the opponents, it’s all a new beginning.
A win against England in Delhi’s Arun Jaitley stadium, a morale booster, and yet Afghanistan would play New Zealand as underdogs. This means, anything can happen. Losing today’s match, would still keep New Zealand in the top 5 to be in the top 3 of the top four to play the semi-finals.
Afghanistan would be optimistic and they would like to bat first to defend their set target against New Zealand. If this would be the case, New Zealand would try hard to bowl out Afghanistan just under 160. This would push Afghans out of the game as there would be no scoreboard pressure for the Kiwis.
Afghanistan top order is very good to bat at a strike-rate of almost 100. Their lower order would also click, but New Zealand is clever to bowl as many dot-balls as they could. Pacers would still be in control to pick wickets in Chennai. The pitch at Chennai would assist spinners, and medium-pace. The more slower balls bowled, would be better in between the faster-balls within every over for the faster bowlers.
Everything looks as if another surprise game to happen as the no more minnows take on undefeated New Zealand. Who knows, the time and day would again belong to Afghanistan. It’s an advantage Afghanistan in Chennai. A contest to watch.
