Afghanistan v Zimbabwe 2nd Test – Match Preview

A victory here would hand Zimbabwe a first Test series win since beating Bangladesh in 2011.

Afghanistan crumbled with the bat in the first Test but were put under good pressure by a youthful Zimbabwe outfit.

Where: Sheikh Zayed Stadium, Abu Dhabi

When: Wednesday, 10 March 2021

Start time: 11:00 IST (05:30 GMT)

Pitch conditions: The pitch for the first Test offered plenty for the excellent Zimbabwe pace bowlers. There was enough on offer for the batsmen who were patient enough. If using the same track then it can be expected to slow down a touch and could offer a little more to the spinners this time around.

Weather conditions: It is going to be another hot few days in Abu Dhabi. There is no cloud cover or rain expected across the five days. Temperatures will increase as the match progresses.

Afghanistan v Zimbabwe 2nd Test – Team News

  • Rashid Khan – The Afghanistan spin star missed the first Test with a finger injury but could make a return if over the issue.
  • Ibrahim Zadran – The opener’s 76 in the second innings of the first test was a real bright spark in what was a poor batting display from the home side. He could be key to the Afghanistan fightback.
  • Sean Williams – The Zimbabwe skipper hit a crucial ton in the first test and his batting prowess will likely be needed once again in this one.
  • Blessing Muzarabani – The pacer took six wickets in the last match with some superb aggressive bowling. He will want to build on that now.

Afghanistan v Zimbabwe 2nd Test – Betting Tips and Predictions

This looks like being another close battle if the first Test is anything to go by.

Afghanistan will surely hit back after the last defeat but the confidence Zimbabwe have gained could also make them a tougher task with the series win up for grabs.

Back Zadran to Continue Form

Ibrahim Zadran did better with the bat in hand than anyone for Afghanistan in the last match and he looks a good bet to be his team’s top scorer.

He hit a solid 31 in the first innings of the last game before a well-measured 76 in the second as wickets continued to fall around him.

His price of 5.0 with 22Bet is far too big after that display.

Madhevere is a Value Option

Wesley Madhevere endured a tough Test debut in the last game when removed for a duck by Hamza Hotak.

However, his ability with the bat has been on show in the white-ball game and he has all the talent to make an impact in the longer format.

Given Zimbabwe tend to lose their openers cheaply, it could be worth backing Madhevere to be his team’s top first innings run-scorer at 8.0 with bet365.

Sean Williams tops the market at 3.0 but the difference in price makes Madhevere a good option when seeking a value wager.

Nyauchi to Shine Again

Seamer Victor Nyauchi showed his potential with the ball in the first test and he looks a decent price to continue his progress in this one.

Backing him to be Zimbabwe’s top bowler at 5.0 with bet365 looks appealing. He teamed up really well with Blessing Muzarabani, who tops this market at 3.6.

Nyauchi should come on for the experience in the first Test and can take more wickets.
