Geared up for the 1st ODI between Afghanistan and Zimbabwe, which is going to take place on Friday. After winning the T20 series comfortably, The Asian side is all set to start the ODI battle on a high note. On the other hand, Zimbabwe would be looking to turn the tables by winning this ODI series. Cricwizz takes a look at the strengths of both the sides. Have a look:
Spinning duo – Mohammad Nabi and Rashid Khan are the backbones of the squad. A good performance from any one of them on a particular day make things easy for the team. And whenever they both fire, there is hardly any chance of Afghanistan losing the match.
Good form – Cricket is all about performance and form! Afghanistan is in terrific form these days and would love to continue their winning momentum. They are looking to take advantage of Zimbabwe’s poor form by winning the first ODI at Sharjah.
Big names – Zimbabwe have a quality side including Cremer, Taylor, Masakadza etc. They have the potential to beat Afghanistan at any point. Their lack of form is the concern here and thus would be looking to be back in the form. They would also like to kick-start the ODI series on a high note by winning the first ODI.
Cricwizz Prediction: The Asian side has a better chance of winning the first ODI
