AFGH vs WI 1st T20I Dream11 Prediction:  West Indies and Afghanistan face each other in the first T20-I in Lucknow with the T20 World Cup 2020 firmly in their sights. Both teams have added a few new faces as they look to identify their best combination ahead of the marquee tournament. The build-up to this game has largely revolved around Nicolas Pooran’s ball-tampering suspension. Although Pooran’s absence will hurt the Windies, they are clear favourites to come up trumps in this game. With Rashid Khan and Mohammad Nabi in their ranks, Afghanistan should prove to be a stern test for the Windies in what promises to be an exciting game of cricket on Thursday.

Pitch Report

A competitive pitch awaits the two sides with some turn and swing on offer for the bowlers. This is the first T20I being played here which could serve up a good batting track. As seen in the ODIs, chasing will be preferred by either side with dew set to play a factor

Weather Report

Cloudy conditions should provide some help for the pacers which could even up the clash between bat and ball. The temperature is expected to be around 25 degrees Celsius with humidity also being a factor as the game progresses.


No injuries have been reported for this game


Predicted XI


Afghanistan will have a lot to figure in terms of team combination after a morale-sapping series loss in the ODI format. Hazratullah Zazai and Rahmanullah Gurbaz will open the batting for the Afghans with Ibrahim Zadran being the front-runner for the number spot. The experience of Mohd Nabi, Ashgar Afghan and Najibullah Zadran is bound to come in handy although it is the performances of the spin twins, Mujeeb ur Rahman and Rashid Khan that could have an adverse effect on the outcome. Two pacers in Sayed Shirzad and Naveen ul Haq should feature with Gulbadin Naib playing as the third pacer.

West Indies will not avail the services of Nicolas Pooran for the entire series. This opens up a slot for Denesh Ramdin, who had a decent CPL 2019. All eyes will be upon Brandon King and Hayden Walsh, who enthralled crowds in the CPL as they finished as the top runscorer and wicket-taker respectively. Kieron Pollard will take up the number four slot with a lot of expectations on Shimron Hetmyer, who hasn’t been in the best of forms. Fabian Allen should get the nod ahead of Khary Pierre as the second spinner while Sheldon Cottrell is certainly one to watch out for in Lucknow.

Top Picks for AFGH vs WI 1st Test Dream11 Team:

Only one wicket-keeper is picked in Rahmanullah Gurbaz with the youngster scoring heavily in the SCL 2019. Along with him, Brandon King and Shimron Hetmyer are also viable options. Kieron Pollard had a great CPL 2019 batting at number four and should be a bankable pick for this game. While SRH duo, Mohammad Nabi and Rashid Khan also warranty a place in the side, much is expected from Evin Lewis, who has multiple hundreds in this format. Naveen ul Haq is picked as the second Afghan bowling option while Hayden Walsh and Sheldon Cottrell should pick a wicket or two in this exciting clash.
