Afghanistan VS England 2019 WORLD CUP MATCH NO. 24 : PLAYING XI, PITCH REPORT & PLAYERS UPDATE

Image result for Afghanistan VS England

Touted to be one of England’s finest batsmen this edition of the World Cup, Jonny Bairstow would have been left disheartened with his 12-run knock against Australia. Sent back to the pavilion for just 12 by Jason Behrendorff, Bairstow was left flummoxed throughout his stay at the crease.

England and Bairstow will both be wishing it was a one-off innings for him. He’s their mainstay at the top of the order, someone they are banking heavily on to construct the successful foundation of a dependable platform from where the rest of the batsmen can take off from.

With 2-37 against Pakistan, Afghanistan will be turning to by far their best pacer to bludgeon Bairstow come Monday. The pitch promises signs of movement in the early part and if he can keep his line and length right on the money, Afghanistan just might send back Bairstow cheaply.

With Jofra Archer expected to be rested owing to an injury he sustained against Australia, the onus will be on Liam Plunkett to make the inroads for the home side. He picked up 4 wickets against Australia but they came at a cost of 69 runs in 9 overs, something that is way too expensive for a frontline bowler.

Pitch Report : Despite it being a fine surface for batsmen, the rainy conditions prevalent in the early part of the encounter will cause problem to batsmen. As was visible when India batted first against New Zealand on this stadium, the pacers will enjoy bowling under the cloud conditions with the sun refusing to come out till noon. It’s going to be a tract that rewards intelligent cricketing shots, allowing batsmen to open their runs and find the boundary at will once settled into his groove.
