Match Preview : (By-Vishnu)
Hello and welcome to the match preview of the 1st t20 between Zimbabwe and Afghanistan which will be played in Harare Sports Club on 11th June.
Zimbabwe lost the series. Neither their batting nor their bowling looked threatening. They performed in patches. With a new series ahead,they will be looking to give a team performance and hope for a turnaround.
On the other hand, Afghanistan has won the ODI series and will look to pocket this series as well. They cleanswept ZIM in the ODI series but the T20 series will be more interesting as their will be a squad for the T20s. The batting onus will be on the likes of Zadran and Zazai. They will want some runs from Gurbaz as well who was unable to score runs in the ODI series. The bowlers did a remarkable job for them and once again it will be their job to restrict the opposition. Afghanistan will be looking to register a win in the upcoming match. In order to do this, the team will once again have to give a good performance.
