The New Zealand vs Afghanistan live streamwill go a long way to deciding which one of three teams will reach the semi-finals of the T20 World Cup 2021 and one of them isn't even playing in the game.

That's because India's fate rest on this game as much as does New Zealand's or Afghanistan's.

The permutations are many, but essentially, if New Zealand win, they are through probably in second place, but potentially in first if Pakistan slip up against Scotland later in the day.

If Afghanistan win and assuming India beat Namibia on Monday it'll all come down to the dreaded net run-rate, a calculation so complicated that it must have been designed by a math teacher with a hatred of sport.

In this regard, India hold the upper hand; they now have the best NRR of the three and will likely increase it considerably in their final game. So, could Afghanistan go through? Only with a big win here, followed by a modest victory or defeat for India.

The first of those is more likely than the second, which may influence how the Afghans approach this game. They were excellent against limited opponents in Namibia and Scotland, and could easily have beaten Pakistan but for some heroics at the end by Asif Ali. But here they'll need to do more than just win they'll need to win convincingly. With that in mind, they'll look to their star man, spinner Rashid Khan, to keep the New Zealand total low, then hope for quick runs from their batsmen.

New Zealand needn't worry about how they win they just need a victory. All of India will be hoping they don't get it.

The New Zealand vs Afghanistan live stream will be shown live in the U.K. on Sky Sports and via the Sky Go app. You'll be able to find it on Sky Sports Cricket and Sky Sports Main Event, with coverage starting at 9.30 a.m and the game at 10 a.m. GMT (the clocks have gone back, remember, so it's an hour earlier than before).
