Kennington Oval, May 27, Monday at 03:00 PM IST
After facing a narrow defeat against Australia in the first warmup game, England will be looking to bounce back in style when they square off against Afghanistan at Kennington Oval on Monday noon for their second warmup game.
While chasing 297 runs total on board, England fell short by just 12 runs and folded up at 285 runs with three balls to spare. The No. 1 ODI side now will be eyeing to regain momentum and down the high-flying opposition.
Afghanistan is soaring high on confidence after beating Pakistan in the first warmup game. Pakistan looked miserable against the spin attack of Afghanistan as Mohammad Nabi and Rashid Khan shared 5 wickets between them. So, can they weave their magic again?
The match will begin at 03:00 PM IST.
England – W, W, W, W, NR
Afghanistan – W, L, W, NR
The previous between New Zealand and India witnessed some green tinge on the surface which initially helped the Kiwi pacers. Plus the overcast conditions too were handy in providing extra help to the seam bowlers. And as far as the weather forecast is concerned it will be mostly cloudy on Monday too. So, swing bowling will be in action again. Also, barring a couple of games, the score in most of the warmup games has remained under 300. A similar fashion is expected when both the teams will reload on Monday afternoon.
