The ICC World Cup Qualifiers 2018 super sixes match number 6 will be played between Afghanistan and United Arab Emirates tomorrow (March 20). The match is scheduled to take place at Old Hararians Sports Club, Harare and will start at 09:30 AM Local or 01:00 PM IST. This is a very crucial and a must-win game for Afghanistan. UAE is already out of the race and can create hurdles for Afghanistan. So, let’s see what happens next.
AFGH- L, L, L, W, W,
UAE- W, L, W, L, L
Afghanistan with two consecutive wins will not like to tamper the winning combination. The team is performing well after failing in group stage and they cannot risk any unnecessary change of combination. However, their regular skipper Asghar Stanikzai returns to the squad. He has been included in the place of Afsar Zazai who has been ruled out due to a hamstring injury. So, they will most likely field the same playing 11.
On contrary, UAE might make a few changes to their playing 11. UAE has been lacking with the bowling. Rohan Mustafa has only looked promising so far. So, they might make a change or two in their bowling department.
Rashid Khan (c), Mohammad Nabi, Gulbadin Naib, Mohammad Shahzad (wk), Dawlat Zadran, Najibullah Zadran, Rahmat Shah, Samiullah Shenwari/Asghar Stamnikjai, Javed Ahmadi, Sharafuddin Ashraf, Mujeeb Ur Rahman
Rohan Mustafa (c), Ahmed Raza, Ashfaq Ahmed, Mohammad Naveed, Imran Haider, Adnan Mufti, Zahoor Khan, Muhammad Usman, Shaiman Anwar, Chirag Suri, Mohammad Boota (wk)
Afghanistan’s all-around performance is helping them register wins. Although they are lacking a bit in batting, the bowling department looked promising with the likes of M Nabi, Rashid Khan, and S Ashraf. In batting, others will have to show their support to Rahmat Shah who played a much-needed knock of 68 runs in the game against WI.
UAE will mostly rely on Rohan Mustafa to restrict Afghanistan. Other bowlers, M Naveed and Zahoor Khan need to support R Mustafa if UAE wishes to win tomorrow’s clash.
With UAE already out of the league, its Afghanistan that has everything on the stake. they will leave no stone unturned to grab the much-needed win. However, with a batting line-up that had failed to perform throughout the series, it will be a bit tough for Afghanistan. On the other hand, the biggest problem with UAE is with the ball. None of their bowlers other than Rohan Mustafa has been effective. So, let’s see who wins tomorrow’s battle? Moreover, Afghanistan would be favorites in tomorrow’s game.
