Cricket Betting Tips and Match Prediction - Afghanistan v West Indies 3rd T20I
The 3rd and the last match of the three-match T20I series of the Afghanistan v West Indies series in India will be played at the Bharat Ratna Shri Atal Bihari Vajpayee International Cricket Stadium in Lucknow.
It was a respite for the neutral fan to see Afghanistan finally giving West Indies a fight.
Having lost all their 4 matches on the tour till now and their last 5 T20Is against West Indies, Afghanistan showed glimpses of what they are capable of in the 2nd T20I, beating West Indies comprehensively by 41 runs.
Afghanistan batted first and made it to a total of 147 runs, a score that was good enough on the Lucknow pitch. Najibullah Zadran, Karim Janat and Gulbadin Naib were the major contributors, all scoring 20-odd.
Kesrick Williams was the pick of the bowlers for West Indies again and pocketed three wickets while Keemo Paul and Jason Holder chipped in with two each.
In reply, only wicketkeeper Denesh Ramdin reached in the 20s as the team was restricted to 106 from their 20 overs. Karim Janat was the star for Afghanistan. After his contribution with the bat, he bowled in the right channels to pick up a 5-wicket haul and end with the second best bowling figures for Afghanistan in T20Is.
Afghanistan have a world class bowling line-up and if their batsmen can contribute in the last match, they have a slight opportunity of bagging the T20I series.
Let's have a look at the probable playing XI of both teams:
Afghanistan- Hazratullah Zazai, Asghar Afghan, Ibrahim Zadran, Najibullah Zadran, Rahmanullah Gurbaz, Mohammad Nabi, Gulbadin Naib, Rashid Khan, Karim Janat, Naveen-ul-Haq, Mujeeb Ur Rahman
West Indies- Brandon King, Evin Lewis, Shimron Hetmyer, Denesh Ramdin, Kieron Pollard, Sherfane Rutherford, Jason Holder, Kesrick Williams, Keemo Paul, Hayden Walsh, Sheldon Cottrell
