AFGH vs WI 2nd T20 Dream11 Team Prediction and Preview
Welcome to Afghanistan vs West Indies Dream11 Team Prediction, Match Preview and Probable Playing XI of the 2nd T20. AFGH and WI will be played in the second T20I at Ekana Cricket Stadium in Lucknow.
The first T20I had a similar result as the ODI series with Windies outplaying the Afghans comprehensively defeating them by 30 runs in the opening encounter.
Batting first, Windies scored 164 runs with the help of brilliant knock of 68 runs from Evin Lewis and late cameo of 32* runs from Kieron Pollard. Gulbadin Naib struck twice while Mujeeb, Rashid and Naveen also took one scalp each.
Chasing the target, Afghanistan batsman failed in front of lethal pace bowling from Windies. He was crumbling on 7/2 before Hazratullah Zazai, Asghar Afghan and Najibullah Zadran made some contributions scoring 23, 25 and 27 runs respectively but could not play a match-winning knock for the team. Pacer Fareed Malik played a useful cameo of 24* runs from 15 balls but was ultimately left behind by 30 runs. Kesrick Williams took three wicket-haul while Pollard and Hayden Walsh struck twice in the winning cause for the team.
West Indies will hope to seal the series tomorrow while Afghanistan will be eager to open their account tomorrow in this series and get a much-needed victory.
AFGH vs WI 2nd T20, Afghanistan vs West Indies in India, 2019.
Bharat Ratna Shri Atal Bihari Vajpayee International Cricket Stadium, Lucknow.
07:00 PM, 16th November 2019.
A neutral track will be on offer with equal support to batsmen as well as bowlers.
Pacers can find some initial assistance while spinners can also exploit the conditions and find some turn.
A good total exceeding 160 can be good total in the first innings, and the chasing side may find it difficult considering the slowness of the surface.
