Venue: Sheikh Zayed Cricket Stadium in Abu Dhabi
Afghanistan will take on Zimbabwe in the first of the 3-match T20I series, starting from 17th March. In the neutral venue here in Abu Dhabi, both sides have performed equally well in the test series, which ended 1-1. Afghanistan are progressing extremely well year by year in both ODI and T20 formats. They defeated Ireland 2-1 in their last T20I series. But with not much exposure in the T20I cricket from past 12 months, it will be challenging for them to beat the Zimbabweans.
Meanwhile, Zimbabwe had recently toured Pakistan, but they were thrashed 3-0. This time, the captaincy responsibility is on the shoulders of Sean Williams, who has done a pretty good job in leading the side in the Test series. There are plenty of changes in their squad from the last T20I series, with Brandon Taylor, Elton Chigumbura, and Chamu Chibhabha all missing. Zimbabwe are currently ranked 12th in the ICC T20 rankings and a series win here will slightly boost their ranking points.
