Predicted XI


Afghanistan will field a couple of new faces with Najeeb Tarakai set to open the batting alongside Hazratullah Zazai. The experience of Ashgar Afghan, Najibullah Zadran and Mohd Nabi dominate their middle order with a heap of allrounders following suit. Their depth in batting serves them well with two of the world’s best spinners in Rashid Khan and Mujeeb ur Rahman also in their ranks for this game.

Zimbabwe depends on its stalwarts, Brendan Taylor and Craig Ervine to provide the goods for them against a formidable Afghan side. Hamilton Masakadza is also key at the top of the order with good depth in their batting unit as well. Ryan Burl and Williams are decent options on a good spin track although their fortunes depend on how their pacers adjust to the conditions at the Sher-e-Bangla stadium.
