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.

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.
