The third and final T20I of a series of three matches between Zimbabwe and Afghanistan will get underway at Harare Sports Club on Tuesday.
Afghanistan followed up their win in the first T20I with a 21-time win in the second to pocket the series. First batting, it was a great effort from them to gain 170 from their twenty-first round because of the loss of five players. The team came back well to raise the total competition across the board after losing a few early catches.
Meanwhile, Zimbabwe is once again grappling with the Bats. Despite being more than half a century away from the Innocent Kaia at its peak, they were only able to reach 149 from their 20th passing age because they had lost seven horns in the process. Lacking a good partner in the midfield, Zimbabwe kept losing games and was never really in the chase.
Afghanistan made an all-out effort with the ball to control the T20I series. Zimbabwe will seek to avoid other mass whitewashes.
Note that, here are three players you can choose to be the captain or vice-captain of your Dream11 team before T20I Tuesday.
No. 3 Sikandar Raza
Sikandar Raza is the only consistent performer for Zimbabwe with the stick in the T20I series. He scored 45 runs in the first T20I and was followed by another impressive run in the next game. Raza hit a lightning-quick shot of 21 41 balls, including a four and four six, for a rate of 195.24.
He’s also a handy bowler and has been quite frugal in the series despite not picking up. Raza has the ability to keep things tight and put pressure on the hitters.
The 36-year-old has been consistently playing for Zimbabwe during the tour. He has the ability to make an important contribution with both the club and the ball in his hand. As the host gets a consoling win in the third T20I, Raza is expected to be back for good once again.
#2 Mohammad Nabi
Mohammad Nabi from the front for Afghanistan in the second T20I. The experienced all-rounder smashed an unbeaten 22-ball 43 record for the first time, giving his side a 170/5, beating with a massive strike rate of 195.45.
After his feat with the stick, Nabi also served, and he picked up the key racket of a good goal. Tadiwanashe Marumani at top. He cushioned the ball with an important breakthrough.
The Prophet also picked up a stick in the first match and took the last place with Najibullah to end the game for Afghanistan. He dribbled well, performing the role of a finisher. His wicket ability is an added bonus. Nabi will show his form when the visitors aim to wipe out 3-0.
#1 Rashid Khan
It goes without saying that Rashid Khan is an invaluable asset, especially given the game’s shorter format. The cunning spinster Afghanistan beat 1/21 in the first game.
In the second T20I, he picked up two wicks from his four shirts, figuring out Sikandar Raza’s wick and Ryan Burl. He proved his worth with the ball once again as he was in the middle of the players, helping his team win the final game.
Rashid is equally capable of bats. He can hit the ball from a distance and is also an important performer with the stick. Afghanistan will rely on its all-round performance in Tuesday’s final game.
As for his ability to get points with both bats and balls, Rashid is a must-have in your Dream11 fantasy team.
Q. Mohammad Nabi scored 30 plus runs and picked a stick?
