An exciting encounter awaits fans as Afghanistan and Zimbabwe butt heads in the 2nd T20 match of their ongoing series. Afghanistan have recovered nicely after their 2-day loss to Zimbabwe in the 1st Test, winning the second Test and the first T20 match of the tour. Rahmanullah Gurbaz, the architect of the Afghan innings — closely missed out on a maiden century in the last match where he made a match-winning 87 off 45. He was backed up by skipper Asghar Afghan, who chipped in with 55 (38) and Rashid Khan who took ended his spell with a brilliant 3-28, becoming the only spinner to get something out of the surface.
Zimbabwe, on the other hand, have been unable to sustain the form they came into the 1st Test with, resulting in back to back losses. Despite the 48-run loss, however, the team will be motivated after seeing the forms of Tinashe Kamunhukamwe, Richard Ngarava and Blessing Muzarabani in the last game. Kamunhukamwe — 44 off 37 — gave Zimbabwe a great start but did not receive much help from the rest of the squad, with the in-form duo of Sean Williams and Sikandar Raza falling for just 22 runs each. Blessing Muzarabani and Richard Ngarava took two wickets each. This is a must-win game for Zimbabwe.
