NZ vs AFG Dream11 Prediction Today Match| Grand League Tips| Probable 11| Pitch Report- Oct 26, 2022

Sports have been part of my life since childhood, so much so that I decided to make a career out of it. I have worked in various sporting events in different roles and have a knack for reading articles related to sports, eventually developing a habit to write about the same. I started playing fantasy sports 3 years back (cricket and football) and since then every day have learned something new. And now I have been using that experience to help others to make the best possible teams.

Are you looking for the best NZ vs AFG Dream11 Prediction? Then you are at the right place.

Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG), Melbourne will host the 9th Match of the T20 World Cup Super 12 between New Zealand vs Afghanistan on October 26th, Wednesday.

The black caps thrashed the host in their opening fixture of the word cup where a blistering know by Finn Allen blew away the Aussies bowlers and they couldn’t recover from that. This type of performance is hardly seen from them and if continue this form, they can reach the next stage easily. In the bowling the trio of Boult, Southee and Ferguson is getting enough purchase from the pitch and Santner who was pick of the bowler in the opening game provides a good balance.

Afghanistan has failed to win a match against the top nation, but they have been proving to be a stern competition. On pitches where the pacers are thriving, the Afghan spin bowlers are putting a spin web against the opponent that was witnessed in their opening game against England. The team need more from their batsmen and the pace bowlers on the Australian pitches if they have to reach the next stage.

Pitch Report 

The pitch at Melbourne has pace and bounce and the fast bowlers will enjoy bowling on this pitch. There is very less help for spinners, but they can come into play due to the bigger boundaries. The batsmen need to give themselves time before playing their shot. A score of 16o runs is a par score on this ground and we can witness an even contest between bat and bowl.

NZ vs AFG Match Prediction

The pitch at Melbourne has pace and bounce but with the game being second of the day, the spinners can come into play as well. The pace bowlers will benefit the most by bowling short of the length deliveries as they can extract extra bounce from the pitch. The batsmen should be patient and take their time before unleashing themselves.
