It’s going to be a truly raucous crowd at the WACA Ground in Perth as Australia takes on Afghanistan in a huge match in the 2015 ICC Cricket World Cup. You’ll be able to watch all the action live and streaming online, and don’t forget to tune in because you won’t want to miss a single second of the action on the pitch.
Right now, Australia has played one less game than most of the other teams in Pool A, and in Pool B too for that matter. They are sitting with a 1-1 record after opening up the World Cup be defeating England by 111 runs but then losing to New Zealand by one wicket.
Bad weather caused their match against Bangladesh to be abandoned without a single ball bowled.
Afghanistan has a record of 1-2 so they are really hoping to get another win, and one over Australia would be huge. Both Bangladesh and Sri Lanka were able to defeat Afghanistan, but they got a big World Cup win over Scotland in Match 17.
The Afghanistan squad may catch a break as reports from Cricket.com state that Australia fast bowler Pat Cummins may miss their match. He is dealing with an ankle injury and has reportedly already been ruled out for their match-up in Perth.
Australia may rely on Mitchell Starc who requires no rest and is looking to be ready for the match up with Afghanistan. Everyone on the team will be exhausted, but they are happy to be playing and competing.
“We’ll see how everyone pulls up, we’ve got a training session or two before our next game so our focus is on Wednesday and winning that game,” Starc said. “I’m always happy to play cricket. You never want to rest. It’s about making sure our recoveries as a squad (are Okay). We’ve got two long flights.”
