ICC T20 World Cup 2021: NZ vs AFG – Fantasy Team Prediction, Fantasy Cricket Tips & Playing XI Details


New Zealand and Afghanistan will lock horns in a virtual quarterfinal on Sunday at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi. India will also have a close eye on this game as their fate of making it to the semifinal hangs on the result of this encounter. If the Kiwis prevail over the Afghans, they will go through and if Afghanistan manage to beat their opponents, Mohammad Nabi & Co will open up doors for Virat Kohli & his boys to progress through to the top four.

Afghanistan defeated the likes of Sri Lanka and Bangladesh to gain direct qualification into the Super 12s, but have hardly lived up to that billing. Having lost to powerhouses Pakistan and India, Williamson’s New Zealand is their last chance saloon for deliverance.

New Zealand, on the other hand, have made a steady rise after losing to Pakistan in the ICC T20 World Cup opener. The Blackcaps remain a force and are once again sneaking their way up to the top four.
