Player Match-ups

RAHMANULLAH GURBAZ AGAINST PACE (2024 T20 WC)

INNINGS - 5

BALLS FACED - 95

RUNS SCORED - 144

WICKETS – 4

Rahmanullah Gurbaz has been impressive for Afghanistan while opening the innings and has had success in the tournament. But in his five innings at the 2024 T20 world Cup, Gurbaz has been dismissed by pacers on four occasions. It would be an interesting contest between him and Tanzim.

MUSTAFIZUR RAHMAN AGAINST RIGHT-HANDERS (2024 T20 WC)

INNINGS - 6

BALLS FACED - 84

RUNS SCORED - 71

WICKETS – 5

Mustafizur Rahman has been successful while bowling to right-handed batters. In five innings, Mustafizur has removed right-handed batters on five occasions. He up against Gurbaz would be a great match-up in the Powerplay.

Venue and Pitch

Arnos Vale Stadium, Kingstown, St Vincent hosted 4 matches in the 2024 T20 World Cup. Teams that won the toss and chose to field have a toss win, match win percentage of 0%, meaning on four occasions at this venue, teams winning the toss have lost. The average first innings total at this venue is 132, and the average second innings score is 115.

The pitch is hard and offers true bounce, benefiting hit-the-deck bowlers. Spinners will find some grip in the middle overs. The pitch is not two-paced, allowing batters to play their shots freely. The highest score at this venue is 159, and the lowest score is 85.

Match Prediction

The result of the India vs Australia match will determine the significance of this game. If Australia loses to India, Afghanistan will be even more motivated against Bangladesh. Gurbaz, Rashid, Gulbadin Naib, and Farooqi will be crucial for Afghanistan's entry into the semi-finals. Bangladesh's spinners can trouble them, and Tanzim can also be equally dangerous. Afghanistan has 80% chance of beating Bangladesh and are the favourites.

Rahmanullah Gurbaz on his current form and run scoring ability at the top makes him the captaincy pick. While Rashid Khan would be great choice for the vice-captaincy role.
