Prediction: Afghanistan to win
Afghanistan registered first win of three-match Twenty20 International series by 11 runs against United Arab Emirates at ICC Academy in Dubai. It was good contest between the bat and ball which showcased a thriller in the end. Now the battle shift to Dubai International Cricket Stadium in Dubai where second game will be played on Friday (16 December, 2016).
Afghanistan posted 161 runs after opting to bat first, Mohammad Shahzad, wicket-keeper and explosive opening batsman smashed 38 runs of 29 balls along with Najeeb Tarakai (11 runs off 17 balls) to give a decent 46 runs opening stand before he was sent back by another Mohammad Shahzad of UAE.
All batsman contributed in the total except Samiullah Shenwari who got out first ball, Mohammad Nabi scored 26 runs while Karim Zannat made 25 runs. Najibullah Zadran and Rashid Khan played sensational cricket to boost Afghanistan score, former scored 31 runs of just 11 balls while later consumed 4 balls to score 14 runs.
To chase target of 161 runs, United Arab Emirates needed a good opening stand but they failed, also wicket kept falling at regular interval. Partnership between Shaiman Anwar (27 balls 34) and Rameez Shahzad (32 balls 49) may have threatened Afghanistan to take game away from them but Rashid Khan provided the much needed breakthrough.
Second game is expected to be thriller, especially after what the presented in first game.
