After securing the second straight win in as many games in ICC Cricket World Cup 2019, it’s time for New Zealand to face some spin trial.
In the second clash of Friday, New Zealand will face Afghanistan with an eye on keeping their winning momentum going in.
Kiwis clinched 2 wickets win over Bangladesh in their previous encounter to make it two in a row, courtesy Ross Taylor’s crucial 82.
Afghanistan, on the opposite, is still looking for the mojo as the side has faced two defeats in starting two games.
The coin will be tossed at 05:30 PM IST.
