New Zealand Vs Afghanistan Winning Prediction - World Cup 2023
New Zealand has been playing very well in the World Cup, and they have won all of their matches. They are the favorites to win this match. However, Afghanistan has a very good group of spin bowlers, and they are one of the best spin bowling teams in the world. So, this will be a difficult match for both teams, and it is possible that Afghanistan could win.
Head To Head Records
New Zealand and Afghanistan have only played 2 ODIs against each other, both in previous World Cups. New Zealand won both matches, by 7 wickets in 2019 and 6 wickets in 2015. However, Afghanistan have improved a lot since then, so New Zealand can expect a tougher challenge in this World Cup.
