Cricket Match Information:
Afghanistan vs West Indies three-match T20 cricket series will begin on Wednesday at Lucknow. West Indies have already defeated Afghanistan in a three-match ODI cricket series and will be now looking to stamp their authority in their favourite format of the game. Our prediction is of another tough cricket series for Afghanistan as West Indies are the defending champions of the format.

- Cricket match time: 7:00 am IST
- Cricket match date: 14.11.2019
- Venue: Bharat Ratna Shri Atal Bihari Vajpayee Ekana Cricket Stadium, Lucknow
- Weather: Cloudy, Temperature: 28 degrees, Thunderstorms: 0%
- Team A: Afghanistan

Afghanistan’s misery continued in the 50 over format as their losing streak stretched to 11 matches. However, they would be hoping that the change in the format will bring in some good luck for them.
After initial success, Skipper Rashid Khan has now found that it is going to take some effort to bring Afghanistan cricket back on track. He will have to ensure that his own performance does not dip in the process. He will also be needing consistent performances from his senior men like Ashgar Afghan, Mohammad Nabi and Mujeeb ur Rahman.
Our prediction is of the inclusion of fresh faces like Rahmanullah Gurbaz in the playing eleven.
Here is our prediction of Afghanistan’s playing XI:
- Rashid Khan
- Gulbadin Naib
- Mohammad Nabi
- Mujeeb ur Rahman
- Karim Janat
- Rahmanullah Gurbaz
- Hazratullah Zazai
- Ashgar Afghan
- Najibullah Zadran
- Mohammad Javed Ahmadi
West Indies, after their disappointing world cup campaign and poor cricket series against India, decided to make a change at the leadership level. Jason Holder, their skipper for a long time, has now been replaced by Keiron Pollard.
The leadership change has worked for them as West Indies have now won their first ODI cricket series since 2014. It has been a long time coming and to do it in foreign conditions would have pleased them greatly.
Now, it is time for their most favourite format and they would be backing themselves to beat Afghanistan convincingly. Our prediction is of the inclusion of Sherfane Rutherford and Brandon King in the playing eleven.
Here is our prediction of West Indies’ playing XI:
- Keiron Pollard
- Jason Holder
- Brandon King
- Nicholas Pooran
- Shimron Hetmyer
- Evin Lewis
- Hayden Walsh Junior
- Sheldon Cottrell
- Alzarri Joseph
- Sherfane Rutherford
- Khary Pierre
Expert Prediction: AFG vs WI
Afghanistan lost the ODI cricket series and now the focus shifts on the three-match T20 cricket series. With the next World T20 under a year away, this series is very crucial for both sides to begin the preparation. Both teams now have a new leader in Rashid Khan and Keiron Pollard and will be looking for a better future under them.
West Indies would be pleased about their effort so far on this tour. Spin was considered to be their Achilles heel before the series began but they have found a few players who have handled spin quite well. They can now relax and play T20 as they have always played. With some success behind them, they can now feel confident about facing the likes of Rashid Khan and Mohammad Nabi.
Afghanistan, on the other hand, would be desperate for a win. They were expected to dominate West Indies in the conditions familiar to them, but they have faltered big time. Now with some new players set to join them in T20 cricket series, they would be looking at them to bring the freshness in the eleven.
Our prediction is of a winning start for West Indies in this series. They have many Caribbean Premier League (CPL) players in their squad who have done well for their respective franchises. The likes of Brandon King and Hayden Walsh Jr. are all products of CPL and would be looking to impress one and all with their skills. Afghanistan, meanwhile, will have to find inspiration from within and turn around their fortune.
Toss prediction? – Lucknow has produced good cricket wickets in both games so far. Although we have not seen a lot of high scores in the series yet, the games have been good. Our prediction is that team winning the toss would like to chase this time.
