The ICC WORLD CUP 2019 31st match will be played between Bangladesh and Afghanistan at the Rose Bowl, Southampton.
Bangladesh has won two matches against South Africa and West Indies and lost three matches against New Zealand, England, and Australia. While one match against Sri Lanka was abandoned due to rains. In their last match against Australia, Australia made 381 for 5 wickets in 50 overs and Bangladesh failed to chase the score and lost the match by just 49 runs. However, their performance against Australia was quite impressive.
Afghanistan has lost all six matches in this tournament against Australia, Sri Lanka, New Zealand, South Africa, England, and India. Only one or two defeat was expected from Afghanistan before the tournament started but, they have failed to perform and is on 10th position in the Points Table.
Bangladesh has a chance to qualify for semi-finals if they improve their performance and win all the three matches against Afghanistan, India, and Pakistan. Whereas Afghanistan has nothing to gain from this match and will not be able to make it up to semi-finals.
