AFGHvs ENG Dream11 Team | 8th Warm-Up Game | ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 | Fantasy Team

The eighth warmup game of ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 will be played between the hosts England and Afghanistan at Kennington Oval, London. This will be the final warm-up game for both the sides ahead of the start of the ICC World Cup 2019 Campaign.

Afghanistan secured three wickets win over Pakistan in their first game and will be looking to get going but the hosts will be a tough nut break. The hosts suffered a narrow 12 runs drubbing against Australia in their first game and are expected to come stronger against Afghanistan.

While England thumped Pakistan by 4-0 in the recently concluded ODI series, it will be interesting to watch them line up against the spin attack of Afghanistan. Mohammad Nabi and Rashid Khan took 5 wickets collectively and were the game changers against Pakistan.
