AUS vs AFG Dream11 (Source: Twitter)

Afghanistan (AFG) will be taking on Australia (AUS) in the ODI World Cup 2023 in the 39th match in Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai. The match will be played on the 7th of November between the teams that are on a winning streak. From the perspective of qualification for the knockout stage of the tournament, the win will be essential more for Afghanistan than Australia.

Afghanistan lost 3 out of their first 4 matches. They did beat England in Delhi but lost to Bangladesh, India and New Zealand in Dharamshala, Delhi, and Chennai respectively. In their last three matches, Afghanistan has beaten Pakistan in Chennai, Sri Lanka in Pune, and the Netherlands in Lucknow respectively. The winning streak might give some confidence for Afghanistan to take on Australia. 

Australia did not have a great start to their tournament either. The five-time world champions lost to India and South Africa in Chennai and Lucknow respectively. Since then, Australia has won all its matches. The Kangaroos have beaten Sri Lanka, Pakistan, Netherlands, New Zealand, and England in their last 5 matches. Going into the match, Australia will be the favourites without a doubt. 

AUS vs AFG (Match 39) - Match Details

Match: Australia vs Afghanistan, Match 39

Date: November 7, 2023

Time: 2:00 PM IST

Venue: Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai

Pitch and Playing Conditions

Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai has usually been a high-scoring venue. Batters enjoy batting, as the ball comes on easily to the bat. Quality pacers can extract something out of the pitch. Spinners do have some turn-on offers. But consistency and accuracy will be key for the bowlers. Teams winning the toss would be looking to bat first, given how things have gone in the last few matches. 

Teams that have scored big totals at the venue in the recent past have won the match. With the progression of the game, the bowlers seem to have found success. With high temperatures and humidity at the venue, teams would not be too happy to have their bowlers go at the batters in conditions that are not easy to play, particularly in the daytime.
