Match details: 

Series/tournament name: Bangladesh T20 Tri-Series

Venue: Chattogram

Date: 20 September, 2019

Time: 6:00 p.m. IST

Preview: 

Afghanistan and Zimbabwe will face off in the match five of the Bangladesh T20 Tri-Series in Chattogram on Friday. The game has no importance as far as the tournament proceedings are concerned as the hosts and Rashid Khan-led unit have already secured a spot in the final of the competition. In the previous meeting between both teams earlier in the tournament, it was Afghanistan who came out on top with a 28-run margin. 

Weather report: There are high chances that the game is to be affected by rain.

Pitch report: Since the first match of the tournament, the pitch has proven to be a good one especially while batting first. However, with the rain forecast available for the evening, team who will win the toss would like to bowl first. 

Probable Playing XI: 

Afghanistan: 

Afghanistan is the most in-form team in the tournament, with two wins out of two, therefore, no major changes are expected in the playing XI. In the batting department, the team will be relying on the likes of Najibullah Zadran, Mohammad Nabi and Asghar Afghan to score bulk of the runs, whereas on the bowling front, the onus will be on the likes of captain Khan, young leg-spinner Mujeeb Ur Rahman and left-arm pacer Fareed Ahmad to produce timely breakthroughs. 

Rahmanullah Gurbaz (WK), Hazratullah Zazai, Najeeb Tarakai, Asghar Afghan, Najibullah Zadran, Mohammad
