Our prediction:

England is a pretty good team and much more stronger than team Afghanistan. Team England is going to play their third game in the event, they have lost one game in the event while having won one too. However, they will give their best to win this and we guess team England will win the match.  

Team Afghanistan is a newbie in this area. They started playing in the ICC World Cup in 2015. So, they need some more time to win over a team like England who has a long experience of playing cricket. However, we are not humiliating Team Afghanistan. Team Afghanistan has the finest players such as Rashid Khan, Rahmanullah Gurbaz, Naveen Ul Haq etc. These players have already shown their class. So, we are expecting to witness a good fight on the pitch. Well, this is all we want, we want to see a good fight & some mesmerizing shots, right?

Final words:

We are predicting that Team England will win this match and also waiting for a good match. Do not forget to stay tuned with the sprinters.news and sprintersgames.in to get all the sports updates on time.
