Australia set to date Afghanistan in the 26th game of 11th ICC cricket world cup on 4 March, 2015 at WACA in Perth. The match has been scheduled to begin at 14:00 local time and 1:00 GMT. This is the pool A match and will be a crucial game for home team Australia to get back on track on winning momentum. They lost previous game by 1 wicket against New Zealand.
Afghanistan cricket team will be having a tough challenge today as they are going to meet one of the favorites of 2015 world cup. This is Afghanistan’s first cricket world cup appearance and they have won one game as well in the tournament when they defeated Scotland in an exciting thriller. But on Wednesday they are going to have some serious bowling and batting attack from Aussies.
Kangaroos are in excellent form though they lost last match against New Zealand at Auckland but still they have good side to claim fifth world cup title. In previous match Australia didn’t bat well and whole team got all out in just 33 or odd overs but they fought like champions and almost defended that title. If Williamson didn’t hit six, they would finish that game at winning end.
Pat Cummins will be missing today’s match whereas James Faulkner may return to the side. But it is rumored that Faulkner won’t be a part of playing 11 as he’ll be given one more match rest to get fully fit for the upcoming important matches. Hence Josh Hazlewood will be making place in playing XI. Let’s have a look at the probable playing 11s for today’s AUS vs AFG match.
