After whitewashing Zimbabwe in the ODI series, Afghanistan have managed to win the T20I series also and now they are on a verge of whitewashing Zimbabwe again in the T20I series. They will face hosts on 14th June 2022 at Harare Sports Club in the last T20I of the series.

With the help of a brilliant batting display in the 1st T20I of the series, Afghanistan has managed to defeat Zimbabwe by 6 wickets whereas they have bowled brilliantly in the 2nd T20I while defending the target and have managed to seal the T20 series against Zimbabwe. Now Zimbabwe are on a losing streak of 4 T20Is.

The 3rd and last T20I of the series will be the important game for Zimbabwe as they have not managed to win a single game while hosting this tour against Afghanistan. They will try to put all the effort into avoiding the whitewash and would like to end this tour on a winning note.

Zimbabwe Preview

Zimbabwe are yet to win a game against Afghanistan in this tour. They are 2-0 down in this T20 series and will face visitors in the last T20I of the series at Harare Sports Club to try to win at least a game while hosting Afghanistan.

After winning the toss, Craig Ervine decided to bat first but the team’s batters couldn't manage to justify the captain's decision in the 1st T20I. Wessley Madhevere (scored 32 runs from 24 balls) and Sikandar Raza (scored 45 runs in 31 balls), played key knocks to set up 159 runs on the board. While defending the target only Ryan Burl has managed to put pressure on opponents with his spell of 3 wickets for 14 runs but Afghanistan have managed to win comfortably by 6 wickets.

In the second T20I, Zimbabwe’s bowlers again failed to put pressure on opponents and as a result, they conceded 170 runs in 20 overs. While chasing the target of 171 runs, except for Innocent Kaia’s 54 runs from57 balls and  Sikandar Raza’s quick 41 runs from 21 balls, no other batter could manage to stay on the crease and they lost the game by 21 runs.

Zimbabwe’s batting unit is struggling throughout this series and if they want to avoid the whitewash in the T20 series, they need to solve their batting issues when they face Afghanistan in the last T20I of the series. 

Key players
Innocent Kaia, Sikandar Raza, Wessley Madhevere, Blessing Muzarabani.

Zimbabwe Predicted Playing XI:

Regis Chakabva (wk), Innocent Kaia, Craig Ervine (c), Wessley Madhevere, Tadiwanashe Marumani, Sikandar Raza, Ryan Burl, Tendai Chatara, Blessing Muzarabani, Donald Tiripano, Ainsley Ndlovu.

Afghanistan Preview

Afghanistan have played brilliant cricket so far in the ODI as well as the T20 series on this tour against Zimbabwe. They have already clinched both the series and will play the last game of the tour against the hosts on 14th June at Harare Sports Club.

With the help of a superb bowling display, Afghanistan have managed to restrict the hosts to just 159 runs in the first T20 of the series. Nijat Masood has managed to send opponents’ 3 batters to the pavilion by giving 34 runs in his spell of 4 overs. Hazaratullah Zazai (scored 45 runs from 26 balls) and Najibullah Zadran (scored 44 runs from 25 balls), led the batting unit to register a 6-wicket win.

In the 2nd T20I also, Afghanistan’s batters have managed to tackle Zimbabwe’s bowlers well and they have put up 170 runs on the board with the help of Najibullah Zadran’s 57 runs from 46 balls and Captain Mohammad Nabi’s 43 runs from 22 balls. Rashid khan took the charge while defending the total and managed to pick 2 wickets for 34 runs in his 4 overs. Afghanistan have comfortably won the game by 21 runs.

Afghanistan have built up a perfect T20 squad for this tour against Zimbabwe and they have played fine cricket so far in the T20 series. Now they would like to continue this winning momentum ahead in the 3rd T20I also and will try to whitw=ewash ZImbabwe again in the T20 series. 

Key players
Hazratullah Zazai, Najibullah Zadran, Mohammad Nabi, Rashid Khan.

Venue Details

The Harare Sports Club in Harare will host this match. This ground is considered a home ground of Zimbabwe and has conducted a few international as well as local domestic games previously. This stadium can accommodate a total of 10,000 people. 

Toss: To Bowl

This ground has conducted 31 T20Is so far and offered an advantage to batters as well as bowlers in a few previous matches. The teams who have opted to bowl first and bat first here have managed to win equal games. In the past 10 T20Is, the chasing team has managed 5 times. At this location, the general trend is that whichever team wins the toss will want to bowl first and chase. 

Afghanistan are looking like a strong side in front of Zimbabwe in all manner. They have shown a good display of batting as well bowling in this series so far. ZImbabwe on the other side, have struggled in front of Afghanistan’s bowling attack and that is why it will be difficult for them to avoid a whitewash in the T20 series as well.
 

We predict that Afghanistan will defeat Zimbabwe.
