Zimbabwe vs Afghanistan Team Previews

Zimbabwe (Match Odds – 3.30)

Team Zimbabwe conceded too many runs in the previous match and never got going in the chase. A slow start to the chase increased the required run-rate well above 6, forcing Zimbabwe to attack the Afghan spinners. That was never going to work, and Zimbabwe ended up losing far too many wickets in the middle overs.

Zimbabwe’s batting has been a problem in recent years, and no solution appears to be in sight. The best batters in this lineup are Craig Ervine, Wesley Madhevere, and Sikandar Raza. For the Top Batsman Zimbabwe betting market, you should consider one of these three options.

If Zimbabwe bats first, it has a better chance of reaching a competitive total because it can pace the inning without the pressure of a target.

Blessing Muzarabani is the standout performer for Zimbabwe’s bowling attack. He possesses genuine pace and bounce that can trouble even the best batsmen. He finished with four wickets and was the only one who posed a threat to the opposing batting. You won’t get the best odds, but you can back him in the Best Bowler Zimbabwe betting market.

Donald Tripano and Tendai Chatara are also capable bowlers, but they are more likely to restrict runs than take wickets.

Zimbabwe Squad

Innocent Kaia, Regis Chakabva (wk), Craig Ervine (c), Wesley Madhevere, Sikandar Raza, Milton Shumba, Ryan Burl, Donald Tiripano, Tendai Chatara, Blessing Muzarabani, Tanaka Chivanga, Dion Myers, Ainsley Ndlovu, Takudzwanashe Kaitano, Clive Madande, Luke Jongwe

Predicted XI: Innocent Kaia, Regis Chakabva (wk), Craig Ervine (c), Wessley Madhevere, Sikandar Raza, Milton Shumba, Ryan Burl, Donald Tiripano, Tendai Chatara, Blessing Muzarabani, Tanaka Chivanga

Afghanistan (Match Odds – 1.32)

Afghanistan is the clear favourite to win this match, and it’s difficult to argue with that. As bettors, we must always consider the risks involved, and the Afghan batting is a major one. There has been progress in how Afghanistan batters pace their innings, but a collapse is never far away.

Rahmat Shah and Hashmatullah Shahidi are the two most accomplished batters in this format of the game. Both of these players do not play T20 cricket and are better suited to the longer innings of ODI cricket.

Rahmanullah Gurbaz is also a dangerous player who can win you the match if he bats for 10-12 overs.

Afghanistan’s batting lineup is bolstered by Mohammad Nabi, Rashid Khan, and Najibullah Zadran.

While the batting is promising but inconsistent, the bowling is breathtaking. Rashid Khan, Mohammad Nabi, and Mujeeb ur Rahman form one of the world’s best spin trios. If they get favourable conditions, as they did in the first match, stopping them will be extremely difficult.

Afghanistan has some good fast bowling talent as well. It can be difficult to pick one outstanding performer from among so many, so as a bettor, you should place your bets on the bowling team as a whole whenever possible.

Afghanistan Squad

Rahmanullah Gurbaz (wk), Ibrahim Zadran, Rahmat Shah, Hashmatullah Shahidi (c), Mohammad Nabi, Najibullah Zadran, Rashid Khan, Azmatullah Omarzai, Mujeeb Ur Rahman, Fazalhaq Farooqi, Fareed Ahmad Malik, Shahidullah Kamal, Zia-ur-Rehman, Ikram Alikhil, Riaz Hassan, Yamin Ahmadzai

Predicted XI: Rahmanullah Gurbaz (wk), Ibrahim Zadran, Rahmat Shah, Hashmatullah Shahidi (c), Mohammad Nabi, Najibullah Zadran, Rashid Khan, Azmatullah Omarzai, Mujeeb Ur Rahman, Fazalhaq Farooqi, Fareed Ahmad

Which Team Wins the Coin Toss – Zimbabwe – 1.85

Which Team Wins the Coin Toss – Afghanistan – 1.85

Pitch and Weather Conditions

The weather forecast for this game is favourable. There is no rain in the forecast, so we should have an uninterrupted match. The first match’s pitch was ideal for batting. It was flat, a little slow, and didn’t help the spinners much. This match is expected to have a similar surface. If anything, it may be a little slower and more helpful to the spinners as the ball ages or in the second inning.

We believe that a score of around 260 is acceptable.

Zimbabwe vs Afghanistan Match Prediction

We’re betting on Afghanistan to win this game. They have a promising batting lineup that performed well in the previous match, as well as a world-class bowling attack. The odds are a little shorter than we prefer, but you can try to get better odds by betting in-play.

Afghanistan is the favourite to beat Zimbabwe at the odds of 1.32.

  • Afghanistan has won four of the previous five matches against Zimbabwe.
  • Zimbabwe’s batting lineup is a little shaky, and its bowling is overly reliant on Blessing Muzarabani.
  • Afghanistan’s bowling attack is world-class, and it is the country’s most valuable asset.
