Preview –

Afghanistan is a new team in cricket but they have shown a good amount of incensement in capabilities in only last few years. Now, they are strong enough to pose a threat to any other team out there. They are playing quite well in this series as they managed to beat Zimbabwe once already in the 3 matches that they played. Of course, they couldn’t take the lead I the series nor dominate the matches but they showed that they can win if they can give their vest effort.

Zimbabwe is not only more experienced team out of these two teams but they also have the added home advantage in this match. Recently, they played really good cricket and they are continuing that. They played well in the world cup, gave India a run for their wins and in all other recent matches. They are ahead in the series by 2-1 and they are showing comfort in winning matches against Afghanistan which comes as no surprise. They will be the favorites for winning this match as well and if they can keep their level high then this will be another easy match to win for them.

Prediction –

We predict that Zimbabwe will win this match.
