Preview

 New Zealand will be up against Afghanistan in match 40 of the ongoing 20-20 World Cup in Abu Dhabi on Sunday (November 7). The equation for the Kane Williamson-led team is pretty easy, win the match and book a place in the semifinals. The team is also on a roll as it has managed to win three matches on the bounce.

While the top order has been slightly inconsistent, they have found someone who has taken them to a decent total. Guptill bailed them out of trouble against Scotland, while Neesham and Glenn Phillips helped them recover after early blows against Namibia. New Zealand will want the batters to click in unison against Afghanistan.

The Mohammad Nabi-led are coming off a 66-run hammering against India. . Over the past two years so, Afghanistan have shown a remarkable rise in international cricket but beating bigger nations have not come easy. Against New Zealand, they have a chance to change that trend.

Pitch Conditions 

Abu Dhabi pitch is getting better for batting. Chasing has been a trend in the tournament so far thus teams need to post a big score batting first.
