The batters then chased down the target without breaking any sweat in just 10 overs. Rahmanullah Gurbaz and Hazratullah Zazai finished the game in the power play itself by scoring 83 runs in the first 6 overs. Afghanistan will look to continue their excellent form in this game as well.

BAN vs AFG Venue and Pitch Report
Sharjah has very short boundaries but the pitch here is slow and low which makes it difficult for the batters to score freely. The ball will grip and turn on this wicket which means spinners and bowlers with good variations will enjoy the conditions. The average first innings score here is 150 runs in T20Is and 155 in domestic T20s. Chasing sides have won 16 out of 25 T20Is played here. The pitch will be fresh for this game so it won’t be as slow as it has been at least in the first innings.
