  • Zimbabwe, suspended by the ICC but allowed to play against other members in series like these, are in turmoil . Ryan Burl smashed 30 from one over in a total of 144/5 against the hosts, in an 18-over game, but the Tigers got home with two balls to spare to win by three wickets.

 AFG vs ZIM Toss Prediction 

Zimbabwe were forced to bat first last time out after losing the toss. If they win this one, they may elect to chase this time out.

 AFG vs ZIM Weather Report 

After rain reduced the last game, there is scheduled to be even more about in Dhaka. Scattered thunderstorms are forecast in warm, sticky conditions with a high chance of rain given.

 AFG vs ZIM Pitch Condition 

The Dhaka pitch gives something for the batsmen, with a dry wicket also offering assistance to the spin bowlers. Both teams lost wickets early on in the last game.

Team NEWS:

 AFG Team News 

Now captained by Rashid Khan, Afghanistan have a strong squad with Mohammad Shahzad – currently serving a suspension – the most notable absentee. Uncapped wicket-keeper-batsman Rahmanullah Gurbaz could be behind the stumps in Shahzad’s absence.

 ZIM Team News 
Tony Munyonga made his Zimbabwe debut in the opening game as they look to build towards their uncertain future. It was an experienced opening pairing of Brendan Taylor and retiring Hamilton Masakadza last time out and changes might be limited despite the defeat.

Key Players:

 ZIM Key Players: 

 Kyle Jarvis: 

His two wickets last time out continued his good T20i form – he has five wickets in his last two games in the format and 61 in total in his career.

 Ryan Burl: 

Hammered 30 in one over, on his way to 57*, last time out and also took a wicket. The wicket, with his leg-break bowling, was a rare one but he does have a strike rate of 131.70 with the bat now.

 Brendan Taylor: 

The wicket-keeper-batsman opened up having hit a half-century in the warm-up match. Ahead of his 150th T20 appearance, he has one hundred and 23 50s to his name, and a strike rate in excess of 120.

 Hamilton Masakadza: 
The Zimbabwean skipper is set to retire after the end of this series and he will want to make his last few innings count. The opening batsman has scored the most runs for the team in the 20-over format - 1529 runs - and he will be expected to take the team off to a flying start.

 Sean Williams: 
He is among the world's best all-rounders in T20 internationals. The left-hander is one of the leading run-scorers for Zimbabwe and has cracked four fifties in the format. Williams has 23 wickets under his belt and he can trouble the Bangladeshi batsmen with his offspin.

 Craig Ervine: 
The left-handed top-order batsman had a very good T20I series in Ireland where he topped the runs charts with scores of 55 and 68* in the two matches. He has plenty of experience in this format and Zimbabwe will want him to continue his impressive form.

 AFG Key Players: 

 Rashid Khan: 
Still ranked the world number one T20i bowler, the new Afghanistan captain took 11 wickets in the test match that preceded this series. He has 261 wickets in 179 T20 matches in his career.

 Mohammad Nabi: 
Still in high demand in T20 cricket, having taken plenty of wickets in his stint with Kent Spitfires alongside some useful runs. The all-rounder remains one of Afghanistan’s finest yet.

 Hazratullah Zazai: 
Failed to show his best form at the World Cup, but the big-hitting 21-year-old opener is back in his favoured format now – the format in which, earlier this year, he smashed 162* in one win against Ireland.

Team Form:

AFG Team Form

Afghanistan are unbeaten in their last ten T20i matches. They beat Ireland 3-0 in India most recently, to follow an away win against the same opposition and series successes against Zimbabwe and Bangladesh.

In Dehradun, Afghanistan were in superb form. Mohammad Nabi took 2-16 and then hit 49* as they won the first match by five wickets, before Hazratullah Zazai hit 162* in a total of 278/3 as they thrashed Ireland by 84 runs.

Nabi top-scored in their most recent T20 international, meanwhile, hitting 81 from 36 balls in a total of 210/7. Rashid Khan then claimed 5-27 as they restricted Ireland to 178/8 to seal a 3-0 series whitewash.

ZIM Team Form

Zimbabwe, who drew their last two T20i series – to Ireland and the Netherlands – made a losing start to this tournament. Ryan Burl’s unbeaten 57, including 30 runs from one Shakib Al Hasan over, lifted Zimbabwe from 63/5 to 144/5 in a match reduced to 18 overs last time out. That still did not prove enough, however – Bangladesh also benefitting from some late hitting as they posted 148/7 to win with two balls to spare.

All the best
