With this, Afghanistan will bat first.

A huge setback for England before the start of the tournament..

Before the World Cup, the England team suffered a huge setback on the bowling front. Fast bowler Reece Topley, the player who took the most wickets on behalf of the English team since the last T20 World Cup, missed the tournament due to injury. Topley’s lack of ability to bowl well in the death overs with the new ball is a huge loss for the England team.

Liam Livingston’s injury in batting is also a concern. However, now he is fit and has got a place in the playing eleven.

Both teams:

Afghanistan (Playing XI): Hazratullah Zazai, Rahmanullah Gurbaz(w), Ibrahim Zadran, Usman Ghani, Najibullah Zadran, Mohammad Nabi(c), Azmatullah Omarzai, Rashid Khan, Mujeeb ur Rahman, Farid Ahmad Malik, Farid Ahmad Malik

England (Playing XI): Jos Buttler(w/c), Alex Hales, David Malan, Ben Stokes, Harry Brook, Moeen Ali, Liam Livingstone, Sam Curran, Chris Woakes, Adil Rashid, Mark Wood
