In the third T20I, Afghanistan batted first and posted a competitive total of 189 for 5 in 20 overs. Hazratullah Zazai replaced Hasmatullah Shahidi in the Afghan side. The decision worked in favor of the Afghan side as Zazai made 39 runs at the top of the order. Rahmanullah Gurbaz scored 53 in 35 balls and gave his team a perfect start.
