Afghanistan Predicted Playing 11
Mohammad Nabi (c), Asghar Afghan, Gulbadin Naib, Hazratullah Zazai, Mohammad Shahzad (wk), Rahmanullah Gurbaz, Rashid Khan, Karim Janat, Naveen-ul-Haq, Mujeeb Ur Rahman, Najibullah Zadran

In a T20 contest, Hazratullah Zazai is one of the hitters who has smashed six sixes in one over. He also made an impression when playing in the 2021 PSL earlier this year. Zazai began his World Cup campaign with a 44-run knock against Scotland, but he was dismissed for a duck against Pakistan. Imad Wasim was the one who took his wicket. Namibia bowlers are in for a lot of trouble if he gets rolling.
On Friday, Rashid Khan became the fastest T20I bowler to reach 100 wickets. In only his 53rd encounter, he achieved the feat against Pakistan. The youngster has six wickets with an economy rate of 5.52 in the present World Cup. With a 5.83 average and a strike rate of 6.3, opponents have had a hard time figuring him out.
- Afghanistan’s lone injury concern is spinner Mujeeb Ur Rahman, who tore through Scotland’s top order on Monday.
- The Namibians are fortunate in that they have won three straight games and have a completely healthy roster to choose from.
Afghanistan vs Namibia Match Tips
Afghanistan came close to securing an improbable place in the semi-finals last time around, but they were unable to cling on against Pakistan. They’ll want to put it behind them as soon as possible, and they should be able to do so against Namibia. The Namibians have won three games in a row, but this will be a far more difficult challenge for them, with the Afghan bowling unit likely to be the key difference between the two teams. Afghanistan’s batting lineup is quite aggressive, and they think that with Rashid Khan in their lineup, they can defend any score. We expect a reasonably simple win in Afghanistan.
