    New Zealand vs Afghanistan Live Score: ICC World Cup 2024, Match 14

    New Zealand vs Afghanistan will clash in the highly anticipated 14th match of the T20 World Cup 2024 at  Providence Stadium, Guyana on Friday, June 8.

    New Zealand (Team News)

    New Zealand stands out from most other participating countries in this competition due to their adaptability. They have been semifinalists or runners-up in each of the last six white-ball World Cups, played in diverse conditions ranging from India and the UAE to England and Australia. Their diverse skills and tactical acumen allow them to make strategic adjustments on the fly. Afghanistan will need to match and counter this adaptability.

    Trent Boult continued to shine in the early overs of IPL 2024, and Afghanistan’s openers, who recently scored 154 against Uganda, will face a significant challenge with swing expected to play a crucial role once more. Left-arm seamers have been particularly problematic for New Zealand’s top-order, with Finn Allen being dismissed by them 15 times in T20Is since January 2022. Devon Conway and Kane Williamson have also struggled, falling to left-arm seamers 5 and 4 times, respectively.

    Afghanistan (Team News) 

    Afghanistan has become a popular choice as cricket fans’ “second-favourite” team due to their improbable journey as a cricketing force. They further cemented this reputation with a spectacular performance in the ODI World Cup in India six months ago. Now, in the condensed T20 format, their players are making waves globally, and they are eager to validate this rise by advancing past the group stage.

    Pitch Report:  Providence Stadium, Guyana

    The pitch is expected to favour spinners, there will be a lot of help for the bowlers and run-making will be difficult as the tournament has suggested so far. Recent weather conditions have been wet, potentially affecting pitch conditions on match day. The captain who wins the toss will look to bat second.
