New Zealand and Afghanistan were playing their last super 12 matches in the T20 World Cup 2021 at Sheikh Zayed Stadium. Afghanistan won the toss and elected to bat first. In the first ten overs, Afghanistan lost four wickets and scored 56 runs.

On the other hand, apart from New Zealand and Afghanistan, this match is important for the Indian team.

After India lost the first two matches against Pakistan and New Zealand, the hopes for the semis were less. In the next matches against Afghanistan and Scotland, India bounced back and won by a huge margin.
