The minnows of Pool A, Afghanistan and Scotland played two games each in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2015, and lost them all. The former went down in their opening game against Bangladesh by a vast margin of 105 runs followed by another defeat from Sri Lanka with a difference of four wickets. The latter surrendered their first match vs, New Zealand by three wickets while England humiliated them in the next one by 119 runs. Team Afghanistan so far has played six One Day Internationals against Scotland, grabbed four and was beaten twice. Both squads will enter the next game with anticipation of winning it but the records favours Afghanistan and Scotland will try to amend it.
Asghar Stanikzai is the only batsman of Afghanistan who has scored a fifty in two matches whereas rest of their batting is guarded by Samiullah Shenwari, Mohammad Nabi, Mirwais Aashraf, Javed Ahmadi and Nawroz Mangal. Hamid Hasan is their supreme bowler as Shapoor Zardan, Aftab Alam, Mirwais Ashraf, Dawlat Zradan are trying their best with the ball.
Kyle Coetzer smashed 71 vs, England as Matt Machan, Richie Berrington and Preston Mommensen have registered fifties in the tournament while Calum MacLeod and Freddie Coleman have yet to prove their worth. Josh Davey is their top wicket taker with seven whereas Iain Wardlaw, Majid Haq and Alasdair Evans are finding it hard to get their rhythm.
