Both Afghanistan and Scotland are without a victory in the 2015 ICC Cricket World Cup, and they’re hoping one will come soon. Well, the chances are that one of them will leave this week’s match against the other with a victory, but no-one is quite sure who will pull it out. You will be able to watch it streaming live online from the University Oval, so don’t miss a moment of the action.
Scotland’s first match in the tournament was against New Zealand, and they ended up losing by three wickets. Their second match didn’t bring much success, either, as they were defeated by England by 119 runs.
Afghanistan has not been doing much better. In their opening match, they were defeated by Bangladesh by 105 runs. After that, they faced off with Sri Lanka, who ended up winning the match by four wickets.
Even with Afghanistan in an 0-2 hole, ICC-Cricket has let it be known that they are in the World Cup to fight. They’re not going to just lay down and let teams walk all over them, but Scotland is preparing to give it their all.
Scotland captain Preston Mommsen was gracious in defeat after their last match, but knows they can win.
“We’ve qualified. We actually have to work harder. We have to go through the whole process of playing in a pressurized tournament to win eight games in a row to qualify for a World Cup.”
Even with just one week down in the 2015 ICC Cricket World Cup, there are many that believe one of these squads will pull off a big upset at some point or another. Fans think that these two teams and Ireland are going to really make some noise.
The match between Afghanistan vs. Scotland is scheduled to begin at 11:00 local time (22:00 GMT) on Thursday, February 26, at the the University Oval in Dunedin.
ESPN will begin online streaming at 4:30 p.m. E.S.T. on Wednesday, February 25, but that is just one option to watch Afghanistan vs. Scotland live. ESPN does charge a fee to watch all of the matches in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2015, so be aware of that.
