AFG vs ZIM Dream11 Prediction, Fantasy Cricket Tips, Playing 11, Pitch Report and Injury Update for 2nd T20I

Rahmanullah Gurbaz and Rashid Khan were the top performers in the 1st T20I, they must be included in your Dream11 fantasy teams and they can be made as captains and vice-captains respectively.

Match Details:

The 2nd of the 3 match T20I series between Afghanistan and Zimbabwe will be played on 19th March at Sheikh Zayed Stadium, Abu Dhabi.

The match is scheduled to start at 2:00 PM local time and 3:30 PM IST and it will be streamed live on Fancode.

Preview:

Afghanistan will take on Zimbabwe in the 2nd of the 3 match T20I series on Friday. Afghanistan looked a completely professional unit in the 1st T20I and they beat Zimbabwe by 48 runs to go 1-0 up in the series. Young wicketkeeper batter Rahmanullah Gurbaz’s 87 runs from 45 balls set up the tone for Afghanistan initially with the bat and later Rashid Khan’s 3 fer and Karim Janat’s economic spell helped Afghanistan to take an early lead in the series.

With two matches still left in the series, Afghanistan are looking really strong at the moment and are likely to whitewash the inexperienced Zimbabwe side. Meanwhile, Zimbabwe didn’t have the answer for the complete team performance from the Afghanistan side, as they lost the match by 48 runs. They missed a trick by sending the opposition to bat first.

Their bowlers were all over the place and couldn’t control the run flow with the ball. They were going well with the required run-rate in the first 10 overs but not enough big hitters, in the end, cost the match for them. With not much time left in the series, they need to bounce back in the 2nd match to level the series 1-1.

Pitch Condition/Report:

Chasing 180 plus target is always a difficult task to achieve on this surface. The track might get slow down in the latter part of the match. Spinners will be really handy on this surface. Having said that, it’s still a good batting wicket where batters can score runs freely. Anything above 170 will be a good competitive score on this surface.
