Hello and welcome to the match preview of the 2nd t20 between Zimbabwe and Afghanistan which will be played in Harare Sports Club on 12th June.
Zimbabwe lost the the first match. Riding on the knocks of Madhevere, Chakabva and Raza, they put on a decent score. The latter hit some lusty blows in the back end of the innings to take the team total to 158 runs but their bowling did not help. The spinners blocked the runs and Burl took 3 wickets but it was not enough to win the game.
On the other hand, Afghanistan has won the first T20. They chased down the target of 159 runs . Zadran and Zazai played crucial knocks and the captain finished the match but they will want some runs from Gurbaz as well who was unable to score runs in the ODI series and the 1st T20.

They will be looking to win the second match and win the series.
