Afghanistan vs Australia Preview
Afghanistan has made fast paces from the time when they featured in the 2015 World Cup for the first time but had to bear a nerve-racking qualifying contest in Zimbabwe to make the 2019 edition. The team should not be under-rated at all as at the year 2018 in the Asia Cup tournament, they beat Sri Lanka and Bangladesh and tied contrary to ultimate champions India.
The game changer of Afghanistan might be Leg-spinner Rashid Khan who might shine out in the upcoming tournament. He is considered to be the fastest to reach 100 ODI wickets in 44 matches.
Australia has been the consistent champions of the World Cup series and is the defending champions of World Cup 2019. They won their first world cup winning the title in the year 1987 and since then they have won four other world cup championship trophy in the edition of 1999, 2003, 2007 and 2015.
In the runner up list, team Australia has been there for 2 times such as in 1975 against West Indies and in the year 1996 against Sri Lanka. Team Australia is the most successful team in the tournament’s history.
In the previous edition of the tournament, Australia won against New Zealand from seven wickets. Though there is no doubt that it is the strongest team but since last year the team is struggling to win other tournaments to keep up with other teams. Australia has to work upon it in order to defend their championship title.
The game changer of Australia might be Steve Smith and David Warner who after their one-year bans over the ball-tampering affair got eligible to play as their ban expire. They might be the complete game changer in the tournament and the expectations are also high from them who have played 214 ODIs and scored 7,774 runs.

Afghanistan vs Australia Match 4 Result: “Australia Won by 7 Wickets”
Australia is the defending champion of this edition of world cup who has won their first world cup winning the title in 1987 and from then onwards they have won four other world cup championship trophy in the edition of 1999, 2003, 2007 and 2015. While talking about the runner up list, team Australia has been there for 2 times such as in 1975 against West Indies and in the year 1996 against Sri Lanka.
On the other hand, Afghanistan has never won the World Cup title but it is also making great progress in other cricket tournament but according to us the team will not stand long in front of five-time World Cup Champions. So, we predict that Australia will win the third match of ICC World Cup against Afghanistan.
