Weather and Pitch Report:
The weather will be sunny at the Shere Bangla National Stadium, Dhaka on the match day. So fans can expect an uninterrupted game of cricket.
The batting of Afghanistan looks solid with the likes of Mohmmad Nabi, Usman Ghani. Nabi brings a ton of experience to the batting order of Afghanistan. The bowling department will be lethal with the presence of Rashid Khan and Mujeeb Rahman. Afghanistan has some quality all-rounders who can be crucial against Zimbabwe.
Zimbabwe will be coming from a loss against Bangladesh. However, Zimbabwe did put a good performance. They put up a modest target of 145 and then they backed up the low score with a good bowling performance. So there are some positives Zimbabwe can take into the next match.
Hamilton Masakadza and Ryan Burl ( 32 balls 57 runs) put up good knocks with the bat against Bangladesh. However, the top order has to perform better against Afghanistan. Kyle Jarvis, Tendei Chatara, and Neville Madziva picked up 2 wickets each, but there was not enough score on the board to defend for the bowlers in the first match.
Injury and Availability News:
There has been no injury updates from both the teams.
