The Last Performance View
Australia would not have thought that the first half of their World Cup group matches is filtered out in this way. But you cannot control the weather which was really bad in Brisbane and as Michael Clarke Australia were beaten on the one hand the quality of New Zealand in Auckland. Afghanistan can only run on an introduced team up decided to put that narrow loss behind them.
As for the occasion, is a large for Afghanistan: playing team ODI No. 1 in his home in one of the longest in the world of cricket? But it is no longer only about the platform for Mohammad Nabi and his men. When asked how it felt to play against great parts said that while the former players used to get quite excited now it had become accustomed to it.
Now that they feel more comfortable at this stage it is also expected that Afghanistan to continue its overall improvement in this competition. Their batting freeze against Bangladesh. However they gave Sri Lanka a good scare and its last portillo added 19 drag them home to Scotland for his first victory in the World Cup 2015.
Arab Emirates simply could not handle the rebound in Perth against the India last week and Afghanistan will like to put up a much better than his fellow associates show.
Autralia play two matches in five days in Perth and Sydney, against Sri Lanka before a break of five days that leads in their last group match against Scotland. Clarke already was asked about where Australia moves to finish in its group. He said that Coach Darren Lehmann had said to the face to focus its energies exclusively on Afghanistan at the moment which is what he and his players were doing. Which is understandable also to go by how their three first matches were, there is no point in looking too far?
In the highlight
Except Samiullah Shenwari, none of the batsmen Afghanistan have gone beyond 100 racing halfway through their campaign in the group stage. Afghanistan had fallen to 3 of 3 in Canberra when faced quick bowling accurately in Bangladesh. Mitchell Johnson and Mitchell Starc bowling in tandem in the WACA pitch will mean relentless extreme rhythm in helpful conditions.
It may not be as fast as the two Mitchells but Hamid Hassan Shapoor Zadran and Dawlat Zadran could be a handful in this field. Australia was outbowled by New Zealand in Auckland and will have to avoid entering too soon too adventurous in Perth.
