AUS vs AFG ODI Match Tickets | Australia vs Afghanistan Cricket World Cup  2023 - BookMyShow

Australia can seal a place in the semi-finals if they manage to beat Afghanistan at Mumbai's Wankhede Stadium today. 

Australia are placed third on the tournament points table with 10 points, and reaching 12 points would make it impossible for fourth-placed New Zealand to catch up to them. 

Afghanistan, on the other hand, could take a major step towards breaking into the top four in what has been a stellar campaign thus far for them in the World Cup. 

Afghanistan are on eight points in seven matches and placed sixth, but a victory would put them forth with a two-point lead over New Zealand, with both sides having just one more game left to play. 

While Afghanistan have been known as a competitive T20 side, they established their status as a formidable ODI side as well in this tournament. 

The Hashmatullah Shahidi-led side beat defending champions England and then went on to beat Pakistan, Sri Lanka, and the Netherlands thus far in the tournament.

Australia will be boosted by the return of Mitchell Marsh and Glenn Maxwell, Marsh had missed out on their previous match against England after having to fly home to Perth for personal reasons. 

He bowled for around 30 minutes and had a short bat in his first training session since arriving back in India. 

Maxwell had missed out on that match after a freak concussion he suffered in a mishap at a golf course. He also trained in the nets in Mumbai.

There is uncertainty around vice-captain Steve Smith. 

The 35-year-old told reporters on Monday that he seems to be suffering a recurrence of vertigo, an issue he has had to deal with a number of times in the last few years.

AUS vs AFG ODI Head To Head Stats & Record Ahead of ICC World Cup 2023  Match 39 in Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai - myKhel

With seats filling up fast for World Cup semifinals, Australia will look to banish middle-order woes and secure a final four spots against a fearless Afghanistan at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai on Tuesday.

 Only two places remain up for grabs, with rampant India slated to finish atop the World Cup points table. South Africa have also qualified.

 With no other team directly threatening Australia's progression into the semifinals, Pat Cummins' men would like to finish the job at the first given opportunity here at the Wankhede Stadium a venue that has been a paradise for batting but also supports the bowlers adequately if they are good enough to exploit the conditions.

 The battle promises to be an enticing watch given Afghanistan's battery of spinners and resolute batting itching to deliver a strong show against Australia, for whom leg-spinner Adam Zampa's 19 wickets in seven matches are the most for any bowler in this World Cup.

Match Preview - Afghanistan vs Australia, ICC Cricket World Cup 2023/24,  39th Match | ESPNcricinfo.com

Afghanistan have been impressive in World Cup 2023, having beaten former champions Sri Lanka, England and Pakistan. After having entered the World Cup in India with just one previous victory, Afghanistan have won 4 out of their first 7 matches, keeping themselves in the semi-finals race. They have stitched a 3-match winning run, beating the Netherlands in their previous game.

The battle between Australia and Afghanistan has another layer of context, as it's being built up as a 'grudge match'. Earlier in March, Australia canceled an ODI series against Afghanistan in the UAE due to the Taliban's announcement regarding further restrictions on women and girls' education and employment. Following consultation with several stakeholders including the Australian Government, Cricket Australia withdrew from a 3-match series.

pitch report

Wankhede favours both pacers and spinners. Bowlers who can swing the ball in the early phases can be successful. Spinners are more effective as the match progresses. Batters can score heavily if they show patience.

It's still hot and humid in Mumbai and the pitch has the reddish tinge that it always does at the Wankhede. But while the pitches used for training did seem to have a lot of turn in them, the surfaces used for the matches so far have been very much in favour of the batters..


In Mumbai, the temperature will go as high as 35 degrees when the match starts. It will cool down to 29 degrees during the late evening. The humidity will be low at 44%. There is little chance of rain, as per Weather.com.

Australia vs Afghanistan prediction

As per Googleโ€™s win probability, there is an 84% chance that Australia will beat Afghanistan in this match.

Team Watch


Just when you thought, Australia will finally have access to their best XI, Smith's vertigo issue could well through a spanner in the works, even though it'll be a case you'd think of how he feels on the morning of the match before any call gets taken. Glenn Maxwell had two hits in the nets for a change and was seen being involved in a lengthy fielding session. Mitchell Marsh has returned to India as well after the unfortunate passing of his grandfather.

Tactics & Strategy:

Like they have in their last few games, Australia look at their best when they are batting first and posting big scores. And that'll be the focus here too, despite the spin threat that Afghanistan do possess. The movement on offer under lights will play a big role too even if Adam Zampa has been their star bowler throughout the tournament.
