The Super Eight stage is generating tremendous excitement as Afghanistan and Australia gear up for their 8th match clash. Afghanistan recently suffered a defeat against India, highlighting the challenges they face. In contrast, Australia maintains an unbeaten streak, showcasing dominance and excellence throughout the tournament. As anticipation builds for this pivotal encounter, Afghanistan aims to rebound from their recent setback, while Australia seeks to extend their winning streak.

But before facing Australia, Afghanistan made changes in their playing xi. Najibullah Zadran is missing out on the game. That is an interesting change. The exact reason is not revealed yet. But it can be a tactical move by the Afghanistan team management. 

The batter is not having a good time with the bat. In the last match, he was dismissed on 19 runs. In the middle order, he failed to score crucial runs in need. That can be a reason behind his absence. Nangeyalia Kharote has been named in the playing xi.

Toss Update:

In the toss time, the Afghanistan skipper 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 occassion 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.”

Australia Playing XI: David Warner, Travis Head, Mitchell Marsh(c), Glenn Maxwell, Marcus Stoinis, Tim David, Matthew Wade(w), Pat Cummins, Ashton Agar, Adam Zampa, Josh Hazlewood
