After the first T20 Cricket game, West Indies have taken the lead in the series and are looking to seal yet another series win over Afghanistan.

Absolutely nothing has gone right for Afghanistan in their ‘home’ cricket series against West Indies. They have lost all four cricket games, three ODIs and one T20 played so far. They now have their last chance to salvage the T20 series against West Indies.
The problem for skipper Rashid Khan has mounted after every game. Not only his senior men have failed to deliver but even his own form has also deserted him. Neither has he managed to pick up wickets nor score some useful lower-order runs.
Our prediction is of at least one change to the playing eleven following their loss in the first game.
Here is our prediction of Afghanistan’s playing XI:
- Rashid Khan
- Asghar Afghan
- Fareed Ahmad
- Gulbadin Naib
- Hazratullah Zazai
- Ibrahim Zadran
- Rahmanullah Gurbaz
- Mohammad Nabi
- Mujeeb Ur Rahman
- Najibullah Zadran
West Indies, led by Kieron Pollard, have done everything right on this Indian tour. They have already won the ODI cricket series and now are in with a chance to win the T20 series.
All of their senior men have contributed at one stage or the other. Evin Lewis has performed brilliantly with the bat and led his team to commanding positions. Even the new inclusion in their squad, Kesrick Williams, impressed everyone and picked up three wickets in the first game.
Our prediction is of the same playing eleven that played in the last cricket game.
Here is our prediction of West Indies’ playing XI:
- Kieron Pollard
- Fabian Allen
- Sheldon Cottrell
- Shimron Hetmyer
- Jason Holder
- SE Rutherford
- Brandon King
- Evin Lewis
- HR Walsh
- Kesrick Williams
- Denesh Ramdin
Expert Prediction: AFG vs WI
The second T20 international cricket game between Afghanistan and West Indies will be played at Lucknow. As has been the story so far on the tour, West Indies ended up as a better team and a winner.
After being sent into bat first, West Indies played well and posted the total of 164 runs on the board. Their inning was buoyed by the fantastic knock from Evin lewis who scored 68 runs off just 41 balls and hammered 6 sixes. He was also supported by skipper Kieron Pollard who scored a useful 32 runs off 22 balls and stayed unbeaten.
Worryingly for Afghanistan, skipper Rashid Khan and Mohammad Nabi both continues to be out of form and that has piled up the problems for them. None of the top and middle order batsmen are staying long on the crease and looking to play throughout the innings. West Indies have played Afghanistan spinners really well and haven’t allowed likes of Mujeeb ur Rahman, Rashid Khan and Mohammad Nabi to dominate them.
West Indies knew that in order to beat Afghanistan, they will have to play their spinners well and that is exactly what they have done on this entire tour. They seem to have prepared well for this tour and are now reaping the fruits. Their experience of playing their cricket in Indian conditions can’t be underestimated as well. Almost all of West Indies T20 players have experience of doing well in India.
Our prediction is of another victory for West Indies in this series and with that a series win as well. Afghanistan will have to play out of skin to salvage the series now.
Toss prediction? – The team winning the toss will definitely look to bowl first as the T20 game is hugely a chase-friendly format. Hence, irrespective of the conditions, our prediction is that team winning the toss would like to bowl first.
