40th Match New Zealand vs Afghanistan Live Score

New Zealand, Afghanistan, India. 40th Match New Zealand vs Afghanistan Live Score. The 40th match of the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2021 could also be the last and last semi-finalist if New Zealand played Group 2 against Afghanistan. With three out of four wins, New Zealand is currently second on the points table. Meanwhile, Afghanistan has won two of the last four games and is in fourth place.

This is certainly a Doordie game, and not only these two aspects, but the results also affect India. If New Zealand wins, we will secure our position in the semi-finals. Afghanistan’s victory not only holds the chance, but also the chance of India. India and New Zealand-Afghanistan won the same number with Afghanistan defeating Kiwi in 7th place and India defeating Namibia in 8th place.

The semi-finalist then determines the net run rate. But if New Zealand wins this encounter, expectations for both Afghanistan and India will be put to an end.
