Afghanistan vs Australia Match Review

Kangaroo captain Mitchell Marsh won the toss and invited Afghanistan to bat first. Batting first, Afghanistan scored 148 runs at the loss of six wickets in 20 overs. Opener Rahmanullah Gurbaz and Ibrahim Zadran kept the target in check from the team’s side, Gurbaz scored 60 runs in 49 balls with the help of four fours and four sixes, while Zadran scored 51 runs in 48 balls.

After the dismissal of both openers, the team was seen struggling. Afghanistan lost their first wicket at 118 runs, and even after that, the team could score only 148 runs. In bowling from Australia’s side, ODI captain Pat Cummins took three wickets for 28 runs in four overs. Right-arm legbreak spinner Adam Zampa took two wickets while Stoinis took one wicket.

The performance of the Australian openers who came out to chase the target of 148 was not very good. Travis Head got out on 0, and David Warner got out on 3 runs. But then Glenn Maxwell came between the victories of Australia and Afghanistan. Maxwell not only handled the Australian innings but also hit big shots against the Afghan bowlers. He played an innings of 59 runs in just 41 balls with the help of six fours and three sixes.
