Series: Afghanistan vs. West Indies in India, 2019
Venue: Ekana International Cricket Stadium, Lucknow
Date: November 09, 2019
Time: 02:00 p.m. IST
Afghanistan is on a ten-match losing streak in ODIs and they need to end their streak in the second game in a bid to stay alive in this competition. Even half-centuries from Rahmat Shah and Ikram Ali Khil did not help Afghanistan as they collapsed to 194 all out. While West Indies are back on their winning ways after their series defeat against India, Shai Hope's unbeaten 77 and Roston Chase's 94 helped their side to take a lead of 1-0 in this series and just a way game away from sealing the series.
The chances of rain are nil and conditions are expected to hot. Full 100 overs match is on the card.
The Lucknow wicket is expected to help both the pacers and spinners with a little turn too. A low scoring game can be expected once again the chasing team should have more advantages.
Probable Playing XI:
Afghanistan did not have a great outing in the first ODI where experienced players like Najibullah Zadran and Mohammad Nabi failed to score in the middle-order, but the bowlers did a great job and took the game to till the wire. Although they got defeated in the first ODI, they are expected to go unchanged for this match.
