Teams

England

With Jason Roy out for upto three weeks, the door opens up for Vince, about whom Morgan assured will open the batting for England. In eight innings, Vince has one half-century, a 40 and a couple of 30-plus scores and even though his move may be temporary, he wouldn’t want to let this chance slip. England played just a one spinner against West Indies and if Morgan is not fit for the clash, expect Moeen Ali to be drafted in as the second spinner.

Probable XI: 1 James Vince, 2 Jonny Bairstow, 3 Joe Root, 4 Eoin Morgan (capt), 5 Jos Buttler, 6 Ben Stokes, 7 Chris Woakes, 8 Adil Rashid, 9 Jofra Archer, 10 Liam Plunkett, 11 Mark Wood

Afghanistan

For two straight games, Afghanistan have not included Mujeeb Ur Rahman in their side. On Monday, the spinner was seen bowling in the nets to every top order batsman and it is likely that he, Rashid Khan and Mohammad Nabi will complete Afghanistan’s three-pronged spin attack. Besides, former captain Asghar Afghan registered a five-ball duck against South Africa and he might again pave way for Najibullah Zadran.

Probable XI: 1 Hazratullah Zazai, 2 Noor Ali Zadran, 3 Rahmat Shah, 4 Hashmatullah Shahidi, 5 Gulbadin Naib (capt), 6 Najibullah Zadran, 7 Mohammad Nabi, 8 Ikram Alikhil (wk), 9 Rashid Khan, 10 Mujeeb Ur Rahman, 11 Hamid Hassan
