Australia vs Afghanistan T20 Word Cup match preview
There are all sorts of scenarios swirling around the end of the Super 12 stage of the T20 World Cup, especially for group 1.
First and foremost, Australia need to win vs Afghanistan to ensure they're on the path to the semi-final.
The problem is Australia will be dependent on how results land in other matches, but will know only one of those results before they play.
England and New Zealand are the strongest contenders for a semi-final slot, and, like Australia, face opponents currently ranked below them.
New Zealand face Ireland before the Australia vs Afghanistan match, so Australia will have some idea of what they need to do to progress.
If New Zealand win as expected, Australia will need to win big against Afghanistan to lift their run rate.
That's because the England vs Sri Lanka match is the following night and both teams there will know exactly if and how they can qualify.
Afghanistan's tournament meanwhile is done after this match.
They do have the advantage of Rashid Khan in the team, who is the current number 1 ranked T20I bowler.
He also plays in the BBL for the Adelaide Strikers, so this is a familiar ground for him.
Australia's fate is in their own hands and they should do enough to keep their semi-finals hopes alive.
