Analysis

The top order of New Zealand has been exceptional in scoring big runs in the ODI World Cup 2023, including the likes of Devon Conway, Daryl Mitchell, and Rachin Ravindra taking the responsibility, in the wake of fitness and injuries issues surrounding the captain Kane Williamson. In the bowling side of things, Matt Henry, Lockie Ferguson, Trent Boult, and Mitchell Santner are amongst the top wicket takers in the quadrennial spectacle, showcasing the dominance of the BlackCaps in the early stages.

Meanwhile, the batting lineup of Afghanistan has managed to put up decent scores on the board in their last two matches of the ODI World Cup 2023, with the captain Hashmatullah Shahidi, Rahmanullah Gurbaz, and the newest addition Ikram Alikhil amongst the runs. The bowling attack of Afghans delivered one of the best performances in the flagship tournament in their last match against England, with the spin trio of Rashid Khan, Mujeeb Ur Rahman, and Mohammad Nabi guiding them to a victory.
