Match 6, Super Sixes World Cup Qualifiers

 

United Arab Emirates are up against Afghanistan in the match 6 of World Cup Qualifiers Super Sixes at Old Hararians Sports Club in Harare. Afghanistan, one of the two new ICC Full Members along with Ireland in the competition, are second from the bottom in Super Sixes points table while their opponent are last on the table.

Afghanistan have been the shock performers of the competition so far and would come out once again to stay afloat. On the other hand, it is curtains for United Arab Emirates who were eyeing their third ICC Cricket World Cup but are reeling at the bottom of Super Six table.

Going by the current form, Afghanistan look a better side with two wins on the trot, whereas United Arab Emirates have lost their last two games. However, the latter will do everything to spoil Afghanistan’s chances of World Cup qualification.
