The Super Eight stage is abuzz with anticipation as Afghanistan and Australia gear up for their 8th match showdown. Afghanistan is aiming to bounce back after a recent defeat to India, intensifying their quest for a crucial victory. Meanwhile, Australia remains formidable with an unbeaten streak, solidifying their position at the top of the points table. Ahead of this highly anticipated clash, Afghanistan has made a notable alteration to its squad, sparking intrigue and speculation about the strategic adjustments for this pivotal encounter.

Hazratullah Zazai is absent against Australia. It is an interesting movement by the team management. It tends to be a strategic move. In the last match, he failed to score big as he was dismissed scoring only 2 runs in 4 balls. Afghanistan needed some strong performance in the opening but he failed to deliver it. 

Karim Jannat has been named in the squad. That is an interesting inclusion by the team. In the middle order, Karim Jannat can be essential. In the toss time, Afghanistan skipper Rashid Khan talked about this change. He said, “We have two changes, Kharote and Janat in for Najibullah Zadran and Hazratullah Zazai.”

Toss Update:

Initially, Australia won the toss and opted to bowl first. Post toss, Rashid Khan said, “To be honest we wanted to bat first. The record of this wicket suggests it becomes harder while chasing, we got what we wanted. What is done is done, can’t think about the past. It’s about the mindset we go in with today, the more you enjoy the better you perform.”

Later he added,  “We’ve spoken about our execution and getting it right. It’s about playing our cricket. Everyone likes to play against big teams, it’s when you get better. Good occasion for us, we get better day by day facing these big teams. We have two changes, Kharote and Janat in for Najibullah Zadran and Hazratullah Zazai.”
