Spread the love

Australia will be facing Afghanistan in their last T20 World Cup 2022 Super 12 fixture at Adelaide Oval on Friday (November 4) in the hope of a big win to boost their chances for the semi-final round. Australia has placed in the third position in the table with five points from the opening four games. Both New Zealand and England have five points but possess comparatively better net run rates. Even if Australia win by a huge margin, they need favorable results from the other games in the group as well.

Afghanistan suffered a big six-wicket loss against Sri Lanka in their last game and now remains the only team without a win in the tournament. Their two Super 12 fixtures were washed away due to rain which will be a little harsh for the fans. Afghanistan will be looking to end their World Cup campaign with a memorable win and cause a big upset for the hosts.
