England would aim to build on its last victory while Afghanistan would look to register its first win when the two sides meet at Old Trafford in Manchester on June 18.
England will enter the match with three wins and one loss from four games so far. Currently, the hosts sit on the fourth place with six points. On the other hand, Afghanistan are placed at the bottom of the table with four losses in as many games. Both England and Afghanistan are yet to win a World Cup trophy.
England have been favourite for the tournament from the start. Their batsmen and bowlers have been bowling well in this tournament. Being the host has favoured them a lot. England wicket-keeper batsman Jos Buttler is in tremendous touch for his team. The right-hander provides late flourish to help England post challenging totals on the board. Archer, who did not find a spot in the preliminary squad, proved that his inclusion in the final 15-man team, was a wise decision as he took three wickets in the opening World Cup match and conceded just 27 runs in his seven overs against South Africa. The bowler has been seen rushing the batsmen in the tournament as he went onto bag three wickets each against Bangladesh and West Indies.
Afghanistan joined the marquee competition only during the 2015 edition and ended its campaign in the group stage. They have played like a rookie in this tournament. Only certain players have been delivering the performance for the team, which has worried the Afghan side. The 20 year old Rashid Khan has been delivering a stellar performance in the game with his bat as well as bowl. Mohammad Nabi strengthens Afghanistan's bowling attack as the 34-year-old provides experience to the squad. He bagged four wickets against Sri Lanka in a World Cup match. All-rounder Nabi can also add some runs with a bat when required by the team. However, they still have to work hard on their overall performance for the upcoming matches.
