The 16th game of the ongoing ICC Cricket World Cup pits New Zealand (NZ) vs Afghanistan (AFG). On October 18, Wednesday, the game will take place at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai.

The New Zealanders just defeated Bangladesh by an eight-wicket margin. Lockie Ferguson claimed a three-wicket haul as New Zealand held Shakib Al Hasan and company to 245. Thanks to half-centuries from the captain and Daryl Mitchell, the Kane Williamson-led team was able to complete the target chase in 42.5 overs.

In contrast, Afghanistan scored their first goal during a historic victory over England in Delhi. Afghanistan scored 284 runs after being given the opportunity to bat first thanks to centuries by Rahmanullah Gurbaz and Ikram Alikhil. Later, Afghanistan restricted Jos Buttler and company by 215 runs in 40.3 overs thanks to Mujeeb Ur Rahman and Rashid Khan’s two wickets each.

MA Chidambaram Stadium Pitch Report:

The Chennai venue typically favors spinners because the surface grows slower as the game goes on. Pacers will profit in the second innings based on previous games. Chasing is simpler at this location since the ball spins during the day and the later-arriving dew will aid the batters.
