Match Preview

Afghanistan had a poor start to its home series against West Indies whom they are hosting in India. The side went down by 7 wickets in the first ODI of the three-match series. Their batsmen had a bad day at the office while the visitors were clinical with their approach winning the game comfortably in the end. It was a complete team performance from the Caribbean side which they have missed since the poor campaign at the World Cup. The bad run for the Afghanistan side has run too long for the side’s comfort and they have lost the last ten games which will definitely be affecting their morale at the moment.

West Indian players would like to exploit this mental weakness in the next game. It will require a great show of character from Afghanistan’s players to win the game against a very strong West Indian team.

Teams Preview

Afghanistan

It was a bad day at the office for Rashid Khan’s side wherein they didn’t apply themselves well. The side had its moments during the game but they didn’t capitalize on those opportunities. The skipper would like to exploit the conditions to his advantage in the next game. Batting wise the side failed and it was only Rahmat Shah and Ikram Ali Khan who held the fort together. Asghar Afghan did well but the rest of the batsmen got out playing poor shots.

The side would be hoping to see a good start from openers Hazratullah Zazai and Javed Ahmadi in the game after they failed in the last game. Najibullah Zardan and Mohammad Nabi have to make contributions in the next game. The bowling attack looks good with new ball bowlers Mujeeb ur Rahman and Naveen-ul-Haq looking in good form. They bowled tight lines in the last game. Rashid Khan was also in good form and if the likes of Gulbadin Naib and Mohammad Nabi are able to keep the line tight the side is expected to do well in the next game.

Afghanistan Actual Playing XI:

Ikram Ali Khil, Asghar Afghan, Javed Ahmadi, Naveen-ul-Haq, Hazratullah Zazai, N Zadran, Sharafuddin Ashraf, Rashid Khan, Mujeeb Ur Rahman, Rahmat Shah, Mohammad Nabi

Afghanistan Predicted Playing XI

Rashid Khan (c), Hazratullah Zazai, Javed Ahmadi, Rahmat Shah, Ikram Ali Khil (wk), Asghar Afghan, Najibullah Zadran, Mohammad Nabi, Gulbadin Naib, Mujeeb Ur Rahman, Naveen-ul-Haq

West Indies

Kieron Pollard made his debut as a regular skipper in this game and he would have been happy with the win his side gifted him in the game. The skipper would have been extremely proud of the manner in which his side dominated the game. With a series win on the cards in the next game, he would want his players to apply the same pressure on the Afghan side. Batting looks in good shape with Shai Hope and Roston Chase in good form and they broke the backbone of the Afghan attack in the last game.

Evin Lewis and Shimron Hetmyer who failed in the last game would be looking to do well in the next one. The side has a very powerful lower middle other that has the likes of Pollard, Nicholas Pooran and Jason Holder. Holder tightened the screws in the last game with the new ball and found good support from Sheldon Cottrell. Alzarri Joseph didn’t have the best day but he will be looking to improve in the next game. Romario Shephard and Hayden Walsh complete a good bowling attack for the side going into this game.

West Indies Actual Playing XI:

Kieron Pollard, Shimron Hetmyer, Nicholas Pooran, Romario Shepherd, Hayden Walsh, Jason Holder, Sheldon Cottrell, Roston Chase, Shai Hope, Evin Lewis, Alzarri Joseph

Pitch And Weather Conditions

The skies at Lucknow would be clear during the game on November 9th and the pitch is expected to be a good one to bat on. The ball would come onto to the bat nicely and fast bowlers aren’t likely to get too much of support from the wicket. Dew is likely to play a role towards the evening and the team batting first would be targeting a score in the range of 300 runs.

Venue Details

Atal Bihari Vajpayee International Cricket Stadium, Lucknow has historically been a good batting surface where fast outfield and shorter boundaries assist the batsmen. There isn’t much for the fast bowlers on this surface while the spinners have done well when the ground has been dry.

Toss Prediction

Its early November and dew would be a major factor when it comes to the toss. The ball would become difficult to grip in the second innings as the night progresses. The side that wins the toss is lost likely to decide to bowl first and shall prefer to chase under lights.

Winning Prediction

Afghanistan has an uphill challenge as they go into this game. It isn’t only about the loss the side suffered in the last game but the fact that they are coming into this game with ten consecutive losses behind their back. West Indies team on its part played magnificently in the last game and barring few quick wickets at the top they looked comfortable in the game. With a powerful batting line-up, the side would go into this game as the favorites to win this one.
