Squad Comparison

Afghanistan

The Afghanistan squad is packed with great T20 players who’ve showcased their talents in T20 cricket in recent times. Hazratulla Zazai has proved his hitting abilities in the Afghanistan Premier League along with middle-order batsman Najibullah Zadran. Bowling all-rounders Mohammad Nabi and Gulbadin Naib are crucial to Afghanistan’s batting and bowling line-up. These two have the ability to hit boundaries towards the end while being consistent with the ball. Afghanistan’s batting has improved over time and goes deep with skipper Rashid Khan being handy with the bat.

Rashid Khan has given some great finishes in the IPL and has been very successful in this format with his right-arm leg-break bowling. Another young bowler from Afghanistan who’s been an asset for T20 leagues around the world is Mujeeb Ur Rahman. Afghanistan’s got 7 bowlers in the squad including Dawlat Zadran, Shahidullah Kamal and Karim Janat.

Zimbabwe 

Zimbabwe’s batting order collapsed in the 1st T20I match of the Tri-Series against Bangladesh. Batting first in a rain-reduced match, Zimbabwe lost 4 wickets for 56 and in walked Ryan Burl. Batting at number 6, Burl scored unbeaten 57 off 32 balls as Zimbabwe finished 144-5 in 20 overs. The two major partnerships for Zimbabwe came for the 2nd and 6th wicket. Craig Ervine (11) and Hamilton Masakadza (34) together added 44 runs for the 2nd wicket. 

While Ryan Burl and Mutombodzi’s unbeaten partnership of 81 runs for the 6th wicket helped Zimbabwe reach 144 in 20 overs. It seemed a low total to defend against Bangladesh at first. However, Zimbabwe bowlers surprised the chasing side with quick wickets at the top. Kyle Jarvis, Tendai Chatara and Neville Madziva picked 2 wickets each. Along with Ryan Burl, the bowlers had got Bangladesh to 60-6 in 10 overs. However, they lost cruise control from that point onwards and conceded 82 runs in the next 8 overs.

Our Prediction for Afghanistan vs Zimbabwe

Afghanistan would win this match

While Zimbabwe bowled really well in the last match, they had put a low target batting first. Afghanistan has a well-balanced squad with experienced and in-form T20 players. Afghanistan’s bowling attack could overpower Zimbabwe’s vulnerable batting order. Afghanistan would be more comfortable batting first as the side has a more reliable bowling attack.

The betting odds for this contest favor Afghanistan showing an indicative probability of 75.7% at 1.32 (bet Rs.100 to win Rs.132). During the live match, the probabilities shift in the opposite team’s favor if Afghanistan loses their middle-order batsmen at a crucial stage in a chase. This is the time when a cricket prediction could win the highest returns on the stake. The contest between the betting sites and a player is to calculate the probability more accurately than the other.
