ICC Cricket World Cup 2019: Afghanistan take on the West Indies in their final group-stage match at Headingley in Leeds in a bid to finish their campaign with a win.
Unable to register even a single win in the ongoing World Cup so far, Afghanistan would aim to end tournament on a high when they face West Indies in their final group stage encounter at Headingley on Thursday.
The Afghanistan team came close to defeat India and Pakistan in their last two matches. However, their inability to cash-in on the crucial junctures of the game denied them with the opportunity of causing what would have been the biggest upsets in this edition of the World Cup.
While the spinners — Mujeeb ur Rahman, Rashid Khan and Mohammad Nabi — have lived up to their reputation with consistent performances throughout the tournament, the fast bowlers and the batting unit have failed to contribute significantly to the team’s cause, a main reason for their dismal performance so far.
However, against West Indies, they will feel confident as they have beaten them thrice in four completed matches.
West Indies, on the other hand, have failed to produce an all-round performance, barring their opening match victory against Pakistan where they bundled out the Green Brigade for mere 105.
