World Cup 2023 LIVE Updates: Netherlands vs Afghanistan Live Score | NED vs AFG Live Score, Straight from Lucknow

  1. Netherlands and Afghanistan will face each other in a must-win match at the Ekanna Cricket Stadium in Lucknow. Talking about the Netherlands, it will be a tough challenge for them as they suffered a massive batting collapse against Australia. They did bounce back and won the following game against Bangladesh. As such, the top four of the Netherlands’ batting lineup need to find their form and deliver some crucial partnerships. They cannot continue to rely on the lower order to rescue them time and again. Vikramjit Singh and Max O’Dowd must put up a gritty stand here and play out at least the first powerplay to give them a good headstart. The middle order is quite strong, with the likes of Colin Ackerman, skipper Scott Edwards, and Bas de Leede. In their game against Bangladesh, it was their skipper Scott Edwards who played a steady knock of 68 runs when their team was falling apart and made the side reach a par total of 229 runs. Then their bowling unit performed well and bundled the Bangladesh side for 142 runs to register a comfortable victory. Sybrand Engelbrecht is another talent to watch out for, as he has been excellent in the past few games. On the other hand, Afghanistan are having a great World Cup, beating England, Pakistan, and Sri Lanka. Their batting has been brilliant so far. After their defeat against the Kiwis, their batters did excellent. While chasing 283 against Pakistan, their openers struck a 130-run partnership. They won the game with 8 wickets to spare. In the very next match against Sri Lanka, Gurbaz was dismissed without scoring, but Rahmat Shah, Shahidi, and Omarzai all scored half-centuries and won the game with seven wickets in their kitty. Their bowling unit has done well, and the team will expect a similar performance from them in this game as well. This pitch in Lucknow has something for the bowlers, and both sides will look to take maximum advantage of it. While Afghanistan may have a slight edge based on their current form, the contest could still be closely fought and go either way.
