Afghanistan has come a long way and are the latest underdogs who have the potential to upset the cart, if not be a strong contender for the World Cup. New Zealand, on the other hand, are on top of the table with 2 wins from 2 matches. Here is all you need to read for both the teams before picking your Fantain XI.
They may be table-toppers but do remember, they played and won against Sri Lanka and Bangladesh. The matches were fairly one-sided though Bangladesh did make them sweat a little. New Zealand has never won the world cup before and this is one of the best teams that they have sent for the campaign.
Martin Guptill, Colin Munro, Kane Williamson (c), Ross Taylor, Tom Latham (wk), James Neesham, Colin de Grandhomme, Mitchell Santner, Matt Henry, Lockie Ferguson, Trent Boult
They may be at the bottom of the table with 2 losses from 2 matches, but Afghanistan has some world-class players to ruffle some feathers at the World Cup in England this year. Having made it so far, they are not likely to exit the tournament without making noise.
Hamid Hassan, Mohammad Nabi, Mohammad Shahzad (wk), Dawlat Zadran, Gulbadin Naib (c), Hashmatullah Shahidi, Najibullah Zadran, Rahmat Shah, Rashid Khan, Hazratullah Zazai, Mujeeb Ur Rahman
Mohammad Nabi: One of the torch-bearers of the Afghan Team, Nabi contributes with his batting skills and off-breaks to score for your Fantain Fantasy Lineup.
Martin Guptill: He played a key role in his team’s win in the first match of the tournament with a blistering 73. He brought in the much-needed momentum for the team to take the lead early on in the World Cup
Trent Boult: In a tournament that was assumed to be dominated by Batsmen, Bowlers like Boult have made the difference by adding a little swing to their pace. This versatility is what makes speedsters like Boult valuable on the flat British pitch.
Boult also completed 150 wickets in ODI as the second fastest bowler after Mushtaq.
Batsmen: Martin Guptill, N Zadran, Colin Munro, Kane Williamson
Bowlers: Matt Henry, Rashid Khan, L Ferguson, Trent Boult
All-Rounders: M Nabi, G Naib
WK: Tom Latham
