Afghanistan will clash with Pakistan in the 2nd T20I of the series on Sunday, the 26th of March at the Sharjah Cricket Stadium. Afghanistan created history on the 24th of March when they got their first-ever win against rivals Pakistan, now they will be eying a series victory. The Pakistan batting unit lacked experience and were restricted to under 100 runs in the first T20I. In reply, the Afghanistan batters took their time but eventually got over the line. It’s a great opportunity for Afghanistan to take an unassailable lead against a fairly young Pakistan side.

Afghanistan can defeat any team with the kind of strength they have, it’s a great opportunity for them to stun Pakistan and take a 2-0 lead in the coming encounter. This will also be the first time Afghanistan will win a series against rival neighbours Pakistan. They have some very exciting T20 players like Rahmanullah Gurbaz and Rashid Khan, Mohammad Nabi who can prove to be very lethal. Fazalhaq Farooqi and Mujeeb Ur Rahman have also done consistently well in the T20 tournaments around the globe. Naveen ul-Haq is another player to keep an eye on in this series. The pitch tends to favour the spinners at Sharjah in the recent past and has proved to be favourable to the Afghanistan team.
