Afghanistan, as expected, cruised to victory in their first T20 encounter against Zimbabwe. Can they secure a series win or will Zimbabwe level things up?
Afghanistan v Zimbabwe 2nd T20 Betting Tips & Predictions: Match Winner
Having correctly predicted that Afghanistan would win the first T20 match against Zimbabwe in Abu Dhabi, it is safe to say I will not be changing my prediction for the second game in the three-match series. Zimbabwe won the toss and decided to bowl first. Afghanistan went onto post 198-5 with opener Rahmanullah Gurbaz top scoring with 87 from 45 balls, hitting six fours and seven sixes. He was well supported by captain Asghar Afghan with 55 from 38 balls. They then went onto reduce Zimbabwe to 150-7 with Rashid Khan collecting figures of 3-28, while Karim Janat and Fareed Malik took two wickets apiece.
Afghanistan v Zimbabwe 2nd T20 Betting Tips & Predictions: Afghanistan Top Scorer
Gurbaz might have top scored with 87 and he looked in fine form, but I am once again going to overlook him in this game. I like the look of Afghan as a captain and a batsman, and although they will never win the T20 World Cup, they could upset some of the so-called bigger nations. Afghan smashed six fours and two maximums on his way to 55 from 38 deliveries, and I am backing him to continue to showcase his talents by top scoring for Afghanistan.
