At the Daren Sammy National Cricket Stadium on June 18, 2024, the West Indies (WI) will take on Afghanistan (AFG) in Match 40 of the T20 World Cup 2024.

A common pattern has been observed in the three games that each side has played thus far: two have been won by batting first and one by chasing. When Afghanistan set aims for their opponents, however, they prevailed with more certainty. They’ve also managed to achieve a higher net run rate than the defending champions, which has put them ahead of the Group C standings even though they have the same number of victories as the West Indies.

The upcoming game is expected to provide a stage for some degree of player combination experimentation because both clubs are placed in distinct Super Eight groups with strong opponents.

The only match they have played in the mega-event is the well-known low-scoring thriller that the Afghans won by six runs in the 2016 T20 World Cup Super 10.

The West Indies have a slim advantage over Afghanistan after seven Twenty20 international matches, winning four of them. But in their most recent match, which took place in 2019, Afghanistan emerged victorious three times, including twice. With Afghanistan showing their mettle against the more seasoned West Indies team, this head-to-head record demonstrates a competitive rivalry. These two countries’ T20 cricket matches are unpredictable and thrilling, as evidenced by the close win total.

Who will win the match?

As they are both in good form and have played reliable cricket, both teams have an equal probability of winning. The selection of an obvious winner is thus challenging. Nonetheless, the fact that the West Indies are playing at home may provide them a small advantage. Although Afghanistan has proven recently that they are capable of facing any side, it might be helpful to have local support and knowledge of the pitches. What fans may anticipate from these two evenly matched teams is a fiercely contested and exciting match.
