Tournament : Afghanistan v West Indies in India, 2019
Date : Monday, November 11, 2019
Time : 2:00 PM IST 8:30 AM GMT
Venue : Bharat Ratna Shri Atal Bihari Vajpayee International Cricket Stadium, Lucknow.
PITCH & CONDITION
Weather : Again the conditions are set to be hot and sunny in Lucknow. There is no chance of rain on the forecast.
Pitch : This wicket can give the bowlers something, both pace for the fastmen and a little turn too.This tour has showed Lucknow offers a bowling wicket, with 19 wickets falling in the last match for example.
Afghanistan : Afghanistan have lost all 11 ODIs they have played since the start of the World Cup, and their last three defeats have all come against the West Indies. In this series, they were bowled out for 194 in the first game and 200 in the second.
In the second contest, Mohammad Nabi and Najibullah’s partnership kept them in contention for a win. But after the latter’s dismissal, things went downhill for the Afghans and they lost by 47 runs.
Javed Ahmad has been awful at the top and it won’t be a surprise if the 17-year-old Ibrahim Zadran gets his maiden ODI cap. Hazratullah Zazai needs to be a little matured while choosing his strokes. After four half-centuries on the trot, a run-out seemed to be the only way the West Indies could have got Rahmat Shah out.
Afghanistan Squad : Hazratullah Zazai, Javed Ahmadi, Rahmat Shah, Ikram Ali Khil(w), Najibullah Zadran, Asghar Afghan, Mohammad Nabi, Gulbadin Naib, Rashid Khan(c), Naveen-ul-Haq, Mujeeb Ur Rahman, Afsar Zazai, Yamin Ahmadzai, Sharafuddin Ashraf, Karim Janat, Ibrahim Zadran
West Indies : For the Caribbean team, on the contrary, the win was a much-needed breather. It was their maiden ODI series victory since August 2014. In between, the side lost as many as 19 series and drew two.
West Indies have been unchanged for both matches so far, but could be tempted to hand Brandon King his ODI debut and look to bring in Keemo Paul, Sunil Ambris and/or Khary Pierre now they have the series wrapped up.
West Indies Squad : Shai Hope(w), Evin Lewis, Shimron Hetmyer, Roston Chase, Nicholas Pooran, Kieron Pollard(c), Jason Holder, Sheldon Cottrell, Romario Shepherd, Hayden Walsh, Alzarri Joseph, Sunil Ambris, Brandon King, Keemo Paul, Khary Pierre.
West Indies have already won the series. The prediction is for West Indies to win the 3rd ODI match.
