Squad Comparison


Zimbabwe has lost 3 matches so far in this Tri-Series. The team has lost twice to Bangladesh and once to Afghanistan. In their recent match, Zimbabwe innings was wrapped up for 136 runs chasing a target of 176. While in the match against Afghanistan, Zimbabwe finished 169-7 chasing a 198-runs target. Number 3, 4 and 5 have failed to steady the innings in the middle for Zimbabwe. As a result, the lower-order batsmen have been the top scorers for the team.

After scoring 42 off 22 balls against Afghanistan at number 7, Regis Chakabva was promoted to number 3 against Bangladesh where he was out for 0 off 2 balls. Both the openers are inconsistent and at least one of them has been out for less than 10 runs. While Sean Williams has scores of 2 and 0 in his last 2 innings, the Zimbabwe batting line-up seems fragile. They will be up against a good bowling attack from Afghanistan.


Afghanistan has won both the matches played so far defeating Zimbabwe and Bangladesh. The middle-order consisting of number 3 and 4 batsmen collapsed and Najibullah Zadran and Mohammad Nabi helped the side cross 190 runs against Zimbabwe. In the next match against Bangladesh, the batting performances from Asghar Afghan (40) and Mohammad Nabi (84) were the only major contributions. Afghan and Nabi together added 79 runs for the 5th wicket as Afghanistan finished the innings with 164-6 batting first.

Mujeeb ur Rahman’s 4 for 15 was the highlight bowling performance that helped Afghanistan win by 25 runs. Rashid Khan, Gulbadeen Naib and Fareed Malik picked 2 wickets each as Afganistan bowled out Bangladesh for 139. In their match against Zimbabwe, Rashid Khan and Fareed Malik picked 2 wickets each and were the most wicket-takers for the side. It is high time, the number 3 and 4 batsmen step up and put some runs on the board for Afghanistan.

Our Prediction for Zimbabwe vs Afghanistan

Afghanistan is favorite to win this match

Afghanistan has a strong bowling attack and an explosive T20 batting line-up. With Asghar Afghan at number 4, Afghanistan can expect steady innings when required. While Nabi and Najibullah are good finishers down the order. Betting sites in India show Afghanistan as clear favorites to win this match. The reason would be Zimbabwe’s disappointing performances with the bat in recent matches. In comparison, Afghanistan has a few batsmen to rely on to get the team through.
