Australia will take on Sri Lanka on Saturday at Kennington Oval, London for the 20th match of the ICC World Cup 2019. In the second match of the day, Afghanistan will take on South Africa in Sophia Gardens.
The reigning champions, Australia will take on Sri Lanka for the first game of Saturday. With three wins in four matches, Australia have six points under their belt. David Warner and Steve Smith have looked in good touch so far and they will look forward to continuing their journey forward. Pat Cummins and Nathan-CoulterNile, on the other hand, have led the pace attack of the team. Sri Lanka are placed on the fifth spot of the points table with 4 points in 4 games. Hence, it could be a lopsided affair with Australia dominating their counterparts in the game.

Searching for their maiden win in the tournament, South Africa take on Afghanistan in Sophia Gardens, Cardiff. Both the teams are winless so far and one of the teams would earn their first points today. The semi-finalists of the 2015 edition of World Cup, South Africa have lost three of their matches while one of the games was curtailed due to rain. Afghanistan are lying on the bottom of the points table and they have sent back their Mohammad Shahzad due to injury concerns. Despite their shortcomings, South Africa step into this match as favourites as Afghanistan face a daunting challenge against South Africa.
