Afghanistan vs Pakistan
2nd T20 Match Prediction & Tips
Time: 26 Mar, 09:30 PM (IST)
Series: 2nd T20 Match
Venue: Sharjah Cricket Stadium – Sharjah, UAE
AFG vs PAK Dream11 Prediction:
- Mohammad Nabi was the star for Afghanistan as he not only took 2 wickets in his 3 overs but also scored game-high 38 runs to help the home side ease past the victory line. On the other hand, Mujeeb Ur Rahman was the star with the ball for Afghanistan as he took 2 wickets and gave just 9 runs in his quota of 4 overs. We expect the 21-year-old to take over 2 wickets in the 2nd T20I as well.
- Pakistan’s batting order failed miserably after none of their batsmen were able to score even 20 runs. Opening batsman Saim Ayub seemed to have gotten off to a decent start as he scored 17 runs off 15 balls but could not turn it into a big innings. On the other hand, Ihsanullah continued to impress with the ball, taking 2 wickets in his 4 overs by giving just 17 runs.
- With the form Rashid Khan has been in, we expect the spin maestro to take over 2 wickets in the 2nd T20I for Afghanistan.

Weather & Pitch Report:
There are no chances of rain as the humidity will peak around 52% during the match hours. The temperature is expected to be around 21 to 16 degrees.
This is a dusty and dry wicket which makes it incredibly tough for the batsmen to counter attack the bowlers. Having to play the ball at their merit, batsmen will be required to take their time to settle in, on this track.
As the 1st T20I clearly indicated, this venue is a fortress for the bowlers, especially the spinners in the middle overs. So, both captains will be looking to field first.

AFG Team News:
After registering such a one-sided win, it is hard to witness Afghanistan making any changes to their starting XI for the second ODI.
PAK Team News:
After being brutally thrashed, it seems only obvious that the likes of Ifthikhar Ahmed and Shan Masood will return to Pakistan starting XI for the 2nd T20I.
AFG vs PAK Pre-Toss LineUps:
R Gurbaz (Wk)
Rashid Khan (C)
Mujeeb Ur Rahman
Azam Khan (Wk)
Shadab Khan (C)
From what we have seen, bowlers can once again be the dominant force at this venue in order for both the teams looking for a win. This is just why the likes of Rashkid Khan, Mujeeb Ur Rahman, and Mohammad Nabi can come in handy for the home side as their marquee players not only have the experience but even the variation to take wickets on a track as such. This is just why we predict Afghanistan to once again beat Pakistan, this time to clinch the series on Sunday.
Afghanistan are favorites to beat Pakistan
AFG Key Players:
Arguably the most lethal bowler to ever feature in the shortest format, Rashid Khan will be key for the home side in the middle overs if they are to win the series on Sunday.
Mohammad Nabi –
The former Afghanistan Captain is not only an added asset who can ball brilliantly but will also be expected to bring stability into the batting unit.
Mujeeb Ur Rahman –
The 21-year-old seems to be in the form of his life and is on the backs of 2 wickets entering the 2nd T20I.
PAK Key Players:
Being the only bowlers to take 2 wickets whilst defending a total of mere 93 runs previously, Ihsanullah will be raring to face the Afghanistan batting unit again.
Mohammad Haris –
Having played so well in the recently concluded PSL 2023, this wicketkeeper-batsman will be looking to redeem himself by giving the away side a good start.
Azam Khan –
Another intensely aggressive batsman, Azam got out on a duck in the 1st T20 but will be hoping to make his presence felt in the upcoming game.
AFG vs PAK Team Form:
AFG Team Form –
Afghanistan is entering the 2nd contest against Pakistan on the backs of 2 consecutive wins.
PAK Team Form –
Featuring in their first competitive T20I series after the conclusion of the ICC T20 World Cup 2022, Pakistan will be looking to equalize the series against Afghanistan on Sunday, at all costs.
