Analysis:

Afghanistan are a strong T20I side and though they start favorites, they would be wary of their Zimbabwe counterparts because the latter are a strong bunch of players. Rashid Khan was in excellent form in the second Test match after missing out on the first game. He took a total of 11 wickets and will be itching to continue his breathtaking form in his favorite format. Mohammed Nabi and Naveen ul Haq are the other men to look out for.

After stunning the hosts in the first game by a terrific victory, Zimbabwe succumbed to a 6-wicket win in the second Test match. This series will be a very important series for Zimbabwe ahead of the T20 World Cup as they are one of the 16 teams to have qualified for the showpiece event. Ryan Burl, Sikander Raza and Sean Williams will be the men to watch out for and are excellent choices for captain and vice captain.
