These two teams never met against each other before and thus we cannot make any bold decision about this match. However, when we see it from a better view, then there is basically no doubt that England is the better team among these two. With capable batsmen who can score runs fast and striking bowlers who can get important wickets early in the match, England is a tough team. Not to mention, they are almost used to the pitch of Australia thanks to the tri nation series they played. So, they are clearly the favorites in this match.
Afghanistan has some talented players with them this time like their captain Nabi who is considered a good all-rounder. With talent and proper team work they can pose threat to any team. What they lack is experience and that may prove fatal for them. However, on their day they will be a tough opponent for any team.
Our prediction for this match is, England will win this match.
