Afghanistan

Introduction:

The Afghanistan national cricket team is set to take on Pakistan in a 3-match T20I series in Sharjah, UAE. This is the first-ever series of this kind between the two countries, and the series will be played at the Sharjah Cricket Stadium.

Team Analysis:

The Afghan team management has named a 17-member team for the series, with Rashid Khan as the captain. Mohammad Nabi, who led the team in another tournament, is back in the national team. Sediqullah Atal, a tall southpaw, might make his debut in this series. Hazratullah Zazai and Rahmat Shah have been excluded from the team. The Afghanistan batting line-up will feature usual suspects, with Rahmanullah Gurbaz opening the innings and the Zadran brothers coming in the middle order. The fast-bowling department will be headed by Fazalhaq Farooqi, and Azmatullah Omarzai and Naveen ul-Haq are the other fast bowling options.

Recent Form:

After a disappointing T20 World Cup campaign where they failed to win a single game in the Super 12 stages, Afghanistan registered a good 2-1 series win over the UAE team. The series was level after the second game but a formidable effort from the entire team saw them emerging victorious in the bilateral series.

Conclusion:

Afghanistan is expected to be a tough opponent for Pakistan. Despite excluding a few experienced players, they have the firepower to put up a strong performance. The recent win against UAE would have given them confidence, and they will look to carry forward that momentum into this series.
