Afghanistan lock horns with Zimbabwe in the 2nd T20I of the ongoing T20I series against Zimbabwe. Afghanistan comprehensively outclassed Zimbabwe in the first game and Zimbabwe need to win the game in order to stay afloat in this series. Afghanistan need a win to pocket off the series. Certainly, a good game is on the cards.
Afghanistan have always been a good T20I side and they boast of some quality players in their ranks. Opener Rahmanullah Gurbaz shone with the bat after he struck a sensational 87 off just 45 deliveries. His innings included 6 fours and 7 sixes. Skipper Asghar Afghan is also in blistering form as he scored 55 in the previous game and is a must-pick in the side.
Zimbabwe need to get past the finishing line in this game to prevent a series loss. Their bowling department was a little expensive and conceded runs even though they took regular wickets. Richard Ngarava and Blessing Muzarabani took 2 wickets each in the game. The batsmen could not anchor the chase.
