NZ vs AFG: Match Preview, probable XI, pitch and weather information, live telecast

The 16th match of the World Cup (ICC Cricket World Cup 2023) will be played between New Zealand and Afghanistan (NZ vs AFG) tomorrow at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai. On one hand, the morale of the Kiwi team is sky high with three consecutive wins, while the Afghan team has caused the biggest upset of this tournament by defeating England in the last match. Afghanistan’s spin bowling on the Chepauk ground will provide a tough challenge to New Zealand’s batsmen.

In the last match of the Kiwi team, captain Kane Williamson made a comeback but during the match he suffered a serious injury to his thumb and was ruled out of the upcoming match. Therefore Tom Latham will once again take charge of the team. In the history of World Cup and ODI, both the teams have come face to face twice so far, in which the Kiwi team has won both times. However, Afghanistan’s confidence is at its peak after defeating defending champions England. In such a situation, the Afghan team will be ready to surprise world cricket once again against New Zealand.
