KABUL and England meet at the Kennington Oval in London on Monday (today).

Afghanistan go into the match days after a morale-boosting win over Pakistan. The hosts, on the other hand, were trounced in their last warm-up encounter.

Despite their experience and statistical edge, England will have to put a superb performance to get the better of Afghanistan — a squad that can upset any side. .

If England have chalked a 4-0 series win over Pakistan, Afghanistan have won three of the previous five games they played.

The final warm0up game is a chance for Afghan batsmen to prove their mettle. Mohammad Nabi will be the key all-rounder for the Afghans, who will also rely on Hashmatullah Shahidi and Hazratullah Zazai.


Afghanistan: Gulbadin Naib (C), Mohammad Shahzad (wk), Noor Ali Zadran, Hazratullah Zazai, Rahmat Shah, Asghar Afghan, Hashmatullah Shahidi, Najibullah Zadran, Samiullah Shinwari, Mohammad Nabi, Rashid Khan, Dawlat Zadran, Aftab Alam, Hamid Hassan and Mujeeb ur Rahman. ​

England: Eoin Morgan (C), Moeen Ali, Jofra Archer, Jonny Bairstow, Jos Buttler (wk), Tom Curran, Liam Dawson, Liam Plunkett, Adil Rashid, Joe Root, Jason Roy, Ben Stokes, James Vince, Chris Woakes, Mark Wood.
