The third and final T20I between hosts Zimbabwe (ZIM) and Afghanistan (AFG) will be played at Harare Sports Club on Tuesday, June 14. The match will start at 4:30 PM IST (Indian Standard Time).
Having already won the first two T20Is of the series, the upcoming match on Tuesday is a dead rubber for the visiting side. For Zimbabwe, however, they will want to salvage something positive out of what has been a rather bleak home series.
ZIM vs AFG Dream11 prediction
Afghanistan have been impressive in the ongoing series. The team kicked off their Zimbabwe tour by first beating the host 3-0 in the three-match ODI series and picked up from where they had left off in the shorter format.
The first T20I saw Afghanistan putting up a collective effort where the likes of Nijat Masood, Hazratullah Zazai and Najibullah Zadran guided their team to a six-wicket win. The second match was all about the batting brilliance of Zadran. Riding on his quickfire half-century, the Afghans won the match by 21 runs.
For Tuesday’s game, Afghanistan will be expected to maintain their aggressive approach and will be favourites to come out on top once again.
ZIM vs AFG Dream11 team tips for 3rd T20I
Top tip: Best batter
Afghanistan’s middle-order batter Najibullah Zadran is an outright pick for this position. The 29-year-old has scored 101 runs in two innings at a strike rate of over 140. During the course, Zadran has hit eight 4s and four 6s, resulting in a tally of 151 fantasy points.
Top tip: Best bowler
With three wickets in two matches already, Afghanistan bowler Rashid Khan is an absolute no-brainer for this contest. He has been selected by a whopping 98.02 per cent of fantasy users and it does not strike as any surprise since he has raked up 117 fantasy points already.
Top tip: Best all-rounder and wicket-keeper
Afghanistan captain Mohammad Nabi is a strong recommendation for this match. The veteran T20 specialist has accrued 158 fantasy points in two matches and has made it to the Dream Team on both occasions. He has scored 58 runs in two matches and boasts a strike rate of 193.33.
For the wicket-keeper pick, Zimbabwe’s Regis Chakabva is the safest option to go with. The 34-year-old has tallied 99 fantasy points in two matches and he, too, has made it to the Dream Team on both occasions.
ZIM vs AFG probable playing XI
ZIM playing XI (probable): Wesley Madhevere, Innocent Kaia, Craig Ervine (captain), Sikandar Raza, Tadiwanashe Marumani, Regis Chakabva (wicket-keeper), Ryan Burl, Luke Jongwe, Ainsley Ndlovu, Tendai Chatara, Donald Tiripano
