ZIM vs AFG Dream11 Match Preview
Zimbabwe will be locking horns against Zimbabwe in the first T20I of the three match series, starting 11th June on Saturday. Zimbabwe is coming off a 3-0 defeat against Afghanistan in the recently concluded ODI series and will be looking to make things equal by clinching the T20I series. The hosts recently lost to Namibia by 3-2 and are in a very bad state at the moment. Chatara and Madhevere performances were the only positives for ZImbabwe from the Namibia series. They will be hoping to carry those positives and rise from the ruins as the world has already ruled them out against a very strong Afghanistan’s side.Also Read: West Indies tour of Pakistan 2022: When and Where to watch PAK vs WI ODI Series LIVE on TV, Live Streaming details, Squads, Schedule, date and time
On the other hand, Afghanistan is getting better and better with another series win against Zimbabwe. They swept Zimbabwe for 3-0 in the three ODI series and are in a very strong position to qualify for the 2023 World Cup. However, coming into this T20I series, they played a T20I game three months back in March. They lost one T20I against Bangladesh and came back very strongly in the second T20I to level the two match series. The rise of Fazal Haq Farooqi has been very exciting for Afghanistan cricket. Rahmanullah Gurbaz would be looking for runs after a poor ODI series. He has 218 career runs against Zimbabwe at an average of 43 and would be looking to carry on that form to win another series for Afghanistan.
