New Zealand vs Afghanistan at T20 World Cup: Form, head-to-head, team news

New Zealand finally get their T20 World Cup campaign underway in Friday’s clash with Afghanistan.

When: Friday, June 7, 7:30pm local (23:30 GMT)

A win against the Kiwis would put them in pole position for qualification for the Super 8 stage from a group, which also includes West Indies, who co-host this edition with USA, and Papua New Guinea.

New Zealand captain Kane Williamson knows the challenge Afghanistan could throw at them, especially their bowling unit, led by world renowned leg spinner Rashid Khan.

“They have such a skilful team, one of the better bowling attacks in the competition,” Williamson told reporters. “And we’ve seen that in franchise competitions: the involvement, the number of Afghan players. They’re getting better and better.”

“They’re getting more and more top-level cricket. And we saw at the last World Cup how strong they were in the one-day international format too. So, (they have) a really highly skilled team and a number of threats,”
