Australia vs Afghanistan: preview
Afghanistan reaching the knockouts for the first time ever would make for one of the greatest Cricket World Cup underdog tales of all time, but in order to make it happen they're realistically going to have to win both of their remaining games.
They're level on points with New Zealand and Pakistan and have a game in hand over both, though Afghanistan's inferior NRR means they're facing an uphill battle, and the conditions at Wankhede Stadium today could work in the Aussies' favour.
Spin, spin and more spin has been the foundation of Afghanistan's unprecedented run, with Noor Ahmad even upstaging his more celebrated colleagues, but the Mumbai pitch isn't one for turning, and has instead provided an ideal environment for huge batting scores. It's why Afghanistan opted to bat first after winning the toss.
They put up a solid 291 thanks to a heroic effort from opener Ibrahim Zadran, who put up 129 and was still standing for Rashid Khan's thrilling 35 from 18.
Australia's few struggles over the past few weeks have come against spinners, and as expected, they've welcome back Mitchell Marsh and Glenn Maxwell as they set off in pursuit of the two points that would guarantee them a spot in the last four.
Australia team: David Warner, Travis Head, Mitchell Marsh, Marnus Labuschagne, Josh Inglis (wk), Glenn Maxwell, Marcus Stoinis, Pat Cummins (c), Mitchell Starc, Adam Zampa, Josh Hazlewood
Afghanistan team: Rahmanullah Gurbaz, Ibrahim Zadran, Rahmat Shah, Hashmatullah Shahidi (c), Azmatullah Omarzai, Ikram Alikhil (wk), Mohammad Nabi, Rashid Khan, Mujeeb Ur Rahman, Naveen-ul-Haq, Noor Ahmad
