afg vs zim Match Prediction & Analysis

Afghanistan seemed to put on a repeat performance of their first T20I to clinch the series 2-0 in the second match.  They have whitewashed Zimbabwe in all the bilateral T20I series played between the two teams so far.  Afghanistan will look to whitewash Zimbabwe 3-0 for the first time. Zimbabwe will look to finish the tour on a high with a win in the last game and return home with a consolation win. T20I format has been the most preferred format for the smaller nations which attracts the audience and a win in this match will do a world of good for Zimbabwe team.

Teams Preview

Afghanistan Preview

Usman Ghani (49 runs) and Karim Janat (53 runs) shared a massive 102-run partnership for the second wicket which set the platform for their innings. Mohammed Nabi took charge of the final overs smashing a 15-ball 40 runs to take their team to good total of 193 runs in 20 overs.

Their bowling unit performed well as a unit with all the bowlers claiming wickets and reducing the opponents to just 148 runs in their 20 overs. Rashid Khan claimed 3 wickets while pacers Naveen ul Haq and Mohammed Nabi took 2 wickets opening the bowling attack for their team.

Top players to bet on:

Karim Janat – Janat has scores of 26 & 53 in the 2 matches and his partnerships at the top in the both the matches helped their post a big score on board. We expect him to continue his good form in this match too.  

Rashid Khan – Rashid Khan has 6 wickets in 2 matches and has been phenomenal with the ball in this series. He also has played some crucial blows in the final overs to give to final touch to their innings with his cameos.

Afghanistan Predicted Playing XI:

Rahmanullah Gurbaz (wk), Karim Janat, Usman Ghani, Asghar Afghan (c), Hashmatullah Shahidi, Najibullah Zadran, Mohammad Nabi, Rashid Khan, Amir Hamza, Naveen-ul-Haq, Fareed Malik

Zimbabwe Preview

Zimbabwe failed to chase the total and lost their second consecutive match by 40+ runs. They were reduced to 56/5 in the middle of seventh over in a steep 194-run chase. Ryan Burl top scored with 40 runs while Tiripano and Mutumbani scored 20+ runs but neither of them looked like threatening the chase.

Their bowlers went for lot of runs and failed to pick wickets at regular intervals allowing the opposition to build partnerships. Ngarava, Tiripano and Muzurabani claimed 4 wickets among themselves but leaked runs at over 10 RPO. Sean Williams and Ryan Burl were economical with the ball with combined figures of 4-0-20-1. 

Top players to bet on:

Muzurbani – Muzurbanui has claimed 4 wickets in 2 matches but his economy rate of over 10 RPO is a big worry for the team. We expect him to take wickets in this match too and try to control the run flow in crucial overs.

Ryan Burl – Burl had a decent match scoring 40 runs off 29 balls with 3 sixes and earlier he had bowling figures of 2-0-7-1 when all his teammates were going for over 10 RPO. We expect him come up with yet another all-round display in this match.

Zimbabwe Predicted Playing XI:

Tarisai Musakanda, Tinashe Kamunhukamwe, Sean Williams (c), Wesley Madhevere, Sikandar Raza, Richmond Mutumbami (wk), Ryan Burl, Donald Tiripano, Brandon Mavuta, Blessing Muzarabani, Richard Ngarava

Venue Details

Abu Dhabi is one of the good tracks in the UAE where batsmen will enjoy the true bounce and pace on offer. But, the pitch might slow down as the match progresses. We expect the scores to be around 160-170 runs in this match.

Toss: To Bat

Afghanistan won 2 matches batting first on this pitch and both teams will expect to continue the trend by batting first in this match too.

AFG vs ZIM Winning Prediction

Afghanistan has form, momentum, head-to-head record, better exposure in the big stages, more experienced batting and bowling attacks when compared to the Zimbabwe team in this series.  Zimbabwe players will look to give their best before returning home against this strong Afghan team and will look to get a win in T20Is which will be a massive boost for them. We expect Afghanistan to win this match and whitewash Zimbabwe.

Afghanistan will win the match & whitewash series 3-0
