Australia vs Afghanistan Highlights World Cup 2022
In a thrilling yet nerve-wracking game, Australia prevailed over Afghanistan by a narrow margin. With less than two overs left until the boundary was reached, Rashid Khan stepped up with an awe-inspiring performance. Clocking 48 off just 23 balls. Unfortunately for him and his teammates, he ran out of time before crossing the finish line. On the other hand, it wasn’t about coming first or second for Australia: their only objective was to qualify for this year’s semi-final round.
Constant pressure throughout the game made it difficult for players from both teams to play without worries. In their batting innings, when Glenn Maxwell 54(32) and Marcus Stoinis 25(21) had come together, there seemed to be enough runs to win them this match. But then Afghanistan’s brilliant death bowling brought down their momentum; Naveen-ul-Haq’s four overs went for 21 runs and picked up three wickets. When it came time for Australia’s turn to bat – they got themselves back into contention when Gulbadin Naib 39(23) and Ibrahim Zaidan 26(33) combined well. But the pendrains started swinging back after Rashid got a couple of hits. In all honesty, it was no surprise to see Australia lose yet again; they never had much of a chance this time around. Suppose Sri Lanka doesn’t win against England tomorrow. In that case, that will end Australia’s hopes of being in the semi-finals as defending champions.
Afghanistan won the toss and elected to bowl first.
Australia vs Afghanistan Highlights, Australia Batting:
1st Over Australia:
Wide outside off-ball, Warner thumps it to the fences. Length outside off-stump as the player stays back and punishes it toward a deep point.
2nd & 3rd Over Australia:
Three boundaries in a row for David Warner. This time he is facing off against Mujeeb Ur Rahman!
3rd & 4th Over Australia:
Fazalhaq Farooqi strikes the first wicket as Green shirts edge to first slip for 3, sharp catch by Gulbadin.
5th Over Australia:
Warner waits for the slower one from Farooqi before dragging it with a horizontal bat and beating Rashid Khan at deep midwicket.
6th Over Australia:
Now Marsh chases the ball too. Full, wide outside the off, he swings his bat – just missing! But it goes for an outside edge that flows towards the boundary rope.
7th Over Australia:
Marsh slogged the ball over the deep area of mid-wicket for a Six. Australia was targeting Mujeeb.
8th Over Australia:
Naveen-ul-Haq Murid breaks their alliance. Warner cannot make contact during an attempted switch hit, the ball slides past them, and they are bowled.
9th & 10th Over Australia:
Naveen-ul-Haq traps Smith in front of the wicket. The batter came in to replace Tim David on the side, and when he did, Australia was already three down! What would happen if Rashid Khan came into the attack?
11th Over Australia:
The Aussie batters have scored 16 runs off of Gulbadin Naib. It was clever batting by the Australian team because they knew it would be difficult to get after Rashid Khan if the Afghan batsman scored quickly.
12th & 13th Over Australia:
A run-out chance was missed when Australian player Mitchell Marsh scored 45 runs. He misjudged his shot, and the ball went high up in the air before Afghanistan’s wicketkeeper, Gurbaz, easily caught it. Australia 88/4
14th Over Australia:
Australians have opted for an aggressive approach right away, which has helped them earn at a quick rate of 9 runs per over. However, they’re also allowing too many wickets to fall while trying this approach – because it might not always work- they’re still up near the top.
15th Over Australia:
Glenn Maxwell and Marcus Stoinis had become inseparable, but they were broken up when Rashid Khan entered the match. All it took was one misstep from Stoinis after he had already had six boundaries off the first over before he attempted to clear it out of the ground again and fell for 25.
16th Over Australia:
Fazal Farooqi bowls an excellent ball to the left-hander for a catch. A brilliant yorker by Afghanistan. It was a perfect piece of death bowling skill that Pakistan could not overcome.
17th Over Australia:
Naveen-Ul-Haq and Fazal Farooqi are playing brilliantly today. Australia is trying to get a high score in this game, but they’re losing it here. It looks like they’re adjusting with a par score.
18th-19th-20th Over Australia:
Australia tried throughout the game to reach a huge total on the scoreboard but fell short when it mattered most at the end. With Maxwell and Stoinis batting, 180 seemed possible – yet since both batsmen eventually went out, we reached just 168. Afghanistan also had an up-and-down game today; they bowled well but dropped Mitchell Marsh early in his innings – which ended in him having made a good run of 45 points. Australia 168/8
Australia vs Afghanistan Highlights, Afghanistan Batting:
1st Over Afghanistan:
Neither Australia nor Afghanistan will back off. They’re going at full speed against each other. It’s going to be so much fun, everyone!
2nd-3rd-4th-5th Over Afghanistan:
Gurbaz attempts to capitalize on the last over of the Powerplay but misses. 47/2
6th Over Afghanistan:
Australian Cricket team sent back Rahmanullah Gurbaz
7th Over Afghanistan:
This may be a competitive game. There is joy in watching for those not directly involved. Still, the closer Afghanistan gets to winning, the tougher it gets for Australia to participate in this competition. 66/2
8th -9th -10th Over Afghanistan:
Afghanistan is approaching the first half of its match against Australia with maturity. The score stands at 72/2, and Pakistan has been given a reminder that they must perform well to move forward in this tournament; otherwise, if both Afghanistan and Sri Lanka win, then Pakistan will be eliminated from contention.
11th Over Afghanistan:
The outlook is grim for Australia. Afghanistan came out of the gates swinging and continued to keep going, batting brilliantly from start to finish.
12th-13th-14th-15th Over Afghanistan:
Afghanistan scored 102 runs with five wickets down but lost two quick wickets after an even 60-run partnership. Gulbadin went for a run out from Maxwell, followed by Ibrahim trying to sweep Zampa and getting himself caught in the process. Najibullah followed up by lofting straight to Glenn Maxwell’s hands. It became apparent how much trouble they were facing as he took his second consecutive catch this innings without dropping the ball.
16th Over Afghanistan:
For Australia to make it past the semi-finals, Sri Lanka needs to win against England.
17th Over Australia:
As the game seems to finish, Rashid Khan hits two monstrous sixes of Kane Richardson in the last two balls of an over. Afghanistan is 136/6.
18th-19th-20th Over Afghanistan:
One of the best performances came from Afghanistan’s Rashid Khan in his match against Australia. He scored a whopping 48 runs off only 23 balls; this put immense pressure on Australia’s net run rate, which was previously fine. With so much riding on it, Afghanistan fought valiantly until the very end!
Australia won the game against Afghanistan by four runs.
