    Hello and welcome to the second match of the day: Afghanistan vs New Zealand.

    New Zealand are in a red hot form having won both their matches including a thriller against Bangladesh. Though their bowlers have performed brilliantly so far, their batting hasgiven some headache to the team management. Ross Taylor and Kane Williamson, their two most important batsmen bailed them out against Bangladesh, but the others need to step up before arriving at the business end of this long tournament.

    Afghanistan on the other hand have lost both their matches. Australia swatted them away, and against Sri Lanka they failed to capitalise on their chances in a rain curtailed match. Both the bowler and the batsmen need to pull up their socks if Afghanistan intend to gain anything from this match, and the World Cup as well.
