AFG vs ZIM Dream11 Prediction, Probable Playing XI, and Fantasy Cricket Tips. Afghanistan and Zimbabwe will play against each other in the 2nd T20I of the three-match series at Sheikh Zayed Stadium, Abu Dhabi.
Afghanistan has continued its domination even in the T20I series and won the match comfortably by 48 runs. They put up an excellent performance, especially with the bat.
Rahmatullah Gurbaz opened the innings for the team and caused havoc by hitting seven sixes and 6 fours but was unlucky to miss a century. Karim Janat was sent to open alongside him, and he batted decently.
At No.3, skipper Afghan came to bat and batted very well, scoring a fifty and helping the team post a big total. Mohammad Nabi and Rashid Khan got the chance to bat, but they couldn’t score much. Najibullah and Usman Ghani are also excellent strikers of the ball and would be waiting for their turn to bat in this series.
The bowling unit also looked in the right touch as they managed to control the flow of runs and picked up wickets. Rashid Khan spun his magic in the last ten overs and managed to pick up three wickets. Fareed Malik and Karim Janat also bowled well, picking up 2 wickets each. The remaining bowlers were economical but went wicketless.
Afghanistan would want to win the series by continuing the winning momentum from the first match.
Even though the chances of winning the T20I are very slim, everyone expected a good fight from them. But they were disappointed as they lost by a margin of 48 runs.
Tinashe Kamunhukamwe and Tarisai Musakanda opened the innings for Zimbabwe and gave a decent start. Tinashe was unlucky as he missed a well-deserved fifty by just six runs.
The most experienced players in the squad, skipper Williams and Raza, batted decently but were not good enough to take their team to victory. There was a hope that Wesley Madhevere might fight till the end, but he too got out early, and the remaining batsman also didn’t score much.
The bowlers well completely out of rhythm as they conceded a lot of runs and managed to pick up wickets only in the death overs. Richard Ngarava and Blessing Muzarabani managed to pick up wickets, but they, too, considered a good amount of runs.
It won’t be easy for Zimbabwe, even in the second T20I. They need to be at their very best to beat Afganisthan and make a comeback in this series.

So it has become difficult to predict how the pitch will play in the 2nd T20I.

The weather will be clear skies, and there is no chance of rain during the match.
