Results of Previous Matches and Historical Stats of England vs Afghanistan
Until now, Afghanistan has had no advantage over the English Cricket team. They faced England twice before, in a T20 World Cup match but lost both of them.
Their first encounter was in Colombo in 2012, where the Englishmen were sent to bat first. Despite a slow start, England put up a score of 196/5, most of which was contributed by Luke Wright (99*). The Afghan batsmen were no match to the sharp bowling lineup of England and got nailed at 80.
In 2016, Afghanistan faced England in a group-stage match. The English batsmen were slowed down by Rashid Khan and Samiullah Shenwari, scoring 142/7. Though it seemed an easy win for Afghanistan, the English bowlers had the last laugh.

Major Players to watch for both England vs Afghanistan in the ICC T20 World Cup 2022
- Ben Stokes: Being one of the best top-order batsmen of the English team, Stokes is the ultimate all-rounder in this match. His top-notch bowling abilities may come out of the syllabus.
- Rashid Khan: The spectacular spells of Rashid Khan are to die for. Currently holding the second position in ICC T20I Bowler Ranks, Khan is the trump card of the Afghan team.
- Moeen Ali: Sit back and relax if Moeen Ali is playing for your team. Maintaining a constant form, this heavy-hitter can change the direction of the match, in a blink.
Prediction for England vs Afghanistan in the ICC T20 World Cup 2022
The squad of Afghanistan is a young team with veterans like Mohammad Nabi and Rashid Khan to guide them. But we believe that England has more balance in terms of performance.
England has world-class all-rounders, who can take the charge of the match, in any role. In this comparison, Afghanistan is devoid of such players. Mohammad Nabi is the only resort for the Afghans in intense moments.
Judging all these criteria, we believe that England will maintain their victorious lap against Afghanistan in the T20 World Cup.
