The team of Australia was given a tough competition by the team of Afghanistan in the T20 World Cup and there was a possibility of reversal once. Ultimately, the Afghanistan team had to face defeat by 4 runs. After this close victory of Australia, there was a big statement from captain Matthew Wade.
Matthew Wade said that we gave Stoinis the last over, it is very nervous to have an all-rounder to bowl the last over. I have seen them do this 3-4 times. But at no point did I feel completely sure. We’ll stay here tonight and watch tomorrow’s game, we’ll expect an upset. We have put ourselves in this position from the beginning, we have been slow in this tournament and hopefully it will not hurt us.
Significantly, playing first, Australia’s team scored a challenging score of 168 runs for 8 wickets. Mitchell Marsh scored 45 and Maxwell scored 54 not out. Naveen-ul-Hall took 3 wickets for Afghanistan. Fazlhaq Farooqui took 2 wickets.
Playing in reply, Afghanistan displayed fine batting and came close to victory. At that time a big upset was expected against Australia. Rashid Khan made an unbeaten 48 off 23 balls while displaying stormy batting from the lower order. Ultimately the Australian team won the match by 4 runs.
