Cricket Match Preview:

Afghanistan and West Indies, sides that are marred by some misfortunes, some self-inflicted problems and very few wins, will be taking on each other in their last World Cup game of 2019 edition. They have just one win among themselves in 16 cricket games and that tells you everything about the struggle of both of these sides in this tournament. This is going to be an inconsequential cricket game and would have no bearing on the standing of the points table.

It should be noted that both of these sides were part of the qualifying tournament played in Zimbabwe, which allowed them to qualify for the World Cup. Both teams were the finalists and Afghanistan had emerged as victorious then. Those were the times for the Afghanistan cricket team. They were high on confidence back then and looked like they will be a cause of concern for a few teams in the competition. However, while they have fought well in a few cricket games, their inexperience of regularly playing such top sides came to the fore.

West Indies began with a blast against Pakistan. They bowled them out for just over a hundred runs and then chased it down in a hurry by seven wickets. But that remains the only win for them in the tournament. It could have easily been at least four wins, had they finished off the jobs well against Australia, New Zealand and, yesterday, against Sri Lanka. In a tournament where the teams are so closely stacked, it becomes a game of margin, West Indies have lost key moments in all of those games.

With eyes on the future, both Afghanistan and West Indies would like to finish the tournament on a high. It is improbable that the likes of Mohammad Nabi, Dawlat Zadran and Hamid Hasan will play another World Cup and same is the case with Chris Gayle, Darren Bravo and even Jason Holder, who has been under extreme pressure in recent times. Hence, the youngsters from both sides will be looking to impress one final time on the biggest stage of them all. 

Cricket Match Information:

Afghanistan and West Indies will take on each other in their final cricket game of the ICC World Cup 2019. Both sides have played eight games so far and, while Afghanistan have been winless so far, West Indies have won one game in the tournament. On the points table, West Indies are on the ninth spot, whereas Afghanistan are on the last spot.


Probable XI (Our Prediction):

Afghanistan are being led by Gulbadin Naib in this World Cup. Afghanistan have been miserable in the tournament so far with eight back-to-back losses. Our prediction is of the same playing eleven for this game of cricket that played their last game unless there is some injury. 

Here is our prediction of Afghanistan’s playing XI:

  • Noor Ali Zadran
  • Hazratullah Zazai
  • Rahmat Shah
  • Hashmatullah Shahidi
  • Asghar Afghan
  • Mohammad Nabi
  • Ikram Alikhil
  • Najibullah Zadran
  • Gulbadin Naib
  • Rashid Khan
  • Dawlat Zadran

West Indies

Probable XI (Our Prediction):

West Indies are being led by Jason Holder. They are now out of the tournament and have won just one cricket game in the tournament. Our prediction is of the same lineup that played their last cricket game.

Here is our prediction of West Indies’ playing XI:

  • Shai Hope
  • Chris Gayle
  • Shimron Hetmyer
  • Evin Lewis
  • Nicholas Pooran
  • Sheldon Cottrell
  • Ashley Nurse
  • Carlos Brathwaite
  • Oshane Thomas
  • Shanon Gabriel
  • Jason Holder

Cricket Statistics and Prediction:

It will be the final time at the World Cup stage that we will get to see ‘The Universe Boss’ Chris Gayle play for West Indies. He has had a mixed tournament with a couple of good innings, but it has been largely a disappointing tournament for him. Our prediction is of a good knock from him in his final World Cup game of cricket.

Cricket Match Conditions and Pitch:

The last international ODI cricket game played here was between Sri Lanka and West Indies recently. It was a high-scoring thriller that Sri Lanka won by 23 runs. Our prediction is of the score of around 300 in this game of cricket. Conditions are expected to be cold and windy.

Our Prediction:

West Indies will begin this game of cricket as favourites. They have a marginally better form with the bat and, while both are coming from close losses, West Indies’ overall experience makes us predict of a West Indies’ victory.

Top Batsman (Prediction):

Chris Gayle (WI) – 50+ runs

Top Bowler (Prediction):

Mohammad Nabi (AFG) -2 or more wickets

Most Sixes (Prediction):

Chris Gayle (WI)
