Afghanistan vs West Indies 1st T20I Today Match Prediction | Who will win

By Ajay Sharma

After going through 3 ODIs last week, Afghanistan & West Indies will be looking to find their feet in the upcoming 3 matches T20I series. West Indies clearly outshone the less experienced Afghanistan in the ODI series but Rashid Khan-led side would be looking to fight back into the contest with the Caribbeans on Thursday. Interestingly, both sides are led by new captains for the limited-over internationals. While Kieron Pollard impressed everyone with his captaincy, Rashid Khan struggled both with the ball and as a captain as well.

When: November 14, 7:00 PM IST
Where: Bharat Ratna Shri Atal Bihari Vajpayee Ekana Cricket Stadium, Lucknow

West Indies have already dominated the ODI series and they are world champions in the T20 format. However, Afghanistan is a much more settled T20 side and in this format, we have seen a lot of upsets over the years. You might get another surprise in this series considering how inconsistent West Indies can be. It will be a mighty task for the rising Subcontinent team but it is surely a challenge they will look to enjoy!
