UAE vs AFG 2nd T20 Match Pitch Report
The T20 series final game will be played between New Zealand and Bangladesh in Bay Oval, Mount Maunganui on 31 December. The wickets are generally well-balanced for both batters and bowers throughout the game. Pacer can seam and swing movement with new balls to trouble the batsmen in 1st powerplay overs. and the surface also equally helps the batsmen to score runs on this ground.
What to expect:
United Arab Emirates: UAE won the toss and put Afghanistan into bat but failed to back up their plans with an extremely poor bowling effort. Barring Aayan Afzal Khan and Ali Naseer, the rest of the bowlers conceded over 8.00 runs per over and struggled to put a lid on the scoring rate. Afghan batsmen looked a little scratchy early up and lost their first wicket after a sedate start, but UAE bowlers’ failure to keep the pressure sustained allowed Rahmanullah Gurbaz and Ibrahim Zadran to up the ante and run away with it.
Chasing 200 against Afghanistan bowling was always going to be hard, and they made it more difficult by losing both openers inside two overs. Vriitya Aravind couldn’t score at a canter and the new-look middle order batting with youngsters Tanish Suri and Samal Udawaththa in the mix was always going to feel the scoreboard pressure when chasing a daunting total under lights. UAE has a lot of work to do to be able to challenge this Afghanistan team, and they might struggle to win a game this series unless they perform to their potential with both bat and ball.
United Arab Emirates Key Players
- Muhammad Waseem- Muhammad Waseem is a very important player for UAE. He is one of the few batters who can be brutal on his day. Waseem needs to give the team a good start if they are to post a big score on the board.
- Vriitya Aravind- If you talk about the most consistent performers for UAE, Aravind will be right up there. Aravind scored 70 in the previous and would like to play a similar innings. However, strike rate is something that he needs to work on.
- Aayan Khan- Aayan Khan bowled well and gave away just 26 runs in 4 overs in a match that saw UAE concede 203. He will have to play a big role in the coming game if the UAE has to pull off an upset.
Probable XI: Muhammad Waseem (c), Khalid Shah, Vriitya Aravind, Tanish Suri (wk), Basil Hameed, Samal Udawaththa, Ali Naseer, Aayan Afzal Khan, Nilansh Keswani, Muhammad Jawadullah, Junaid Siddique

Afghanistan: Afghanistan’s buildup towards the T20 World Cup got off to a flying start with a dominant performance in the first T20I with both bat and ball.
Swashbuckling opener Rahmanullah Gurbaz started slow but quickly shifted gears to finish with a 100, while newly anointed young captain Ibrahim Zadran chipped in with a useful 59. All-rounders Azmatullah Omarzai and Mohammad Nabi hit 4 boundaries between them in the last overs, taking Afghanistan’s final tally over 200. The Afghan pace attack, featuring Fazalhaq Farrooqi and Naveen ul Haq, sent both openers out in quick succession, denying UAE a chance to score freely when the field restrictions were in place.
They kept asking questions of the inexperienced middle order and made sure that the chase went nowhere after the openers departed. The absence of experienced campaigners, Rashid Khan and Mujeeb, allowed Noor Ahmad and Qais Ahmad to lead the spin attack and they did an excellent job. With not many T20Is to go before they start their T20 World Cup campaign, Afghanistan will be looking to win the series in this game and get some momentum going for them before they travel to India early next month for a T20 series.
Afghanistan Key Players
- Rahmanullah Gurbaz- Rahmanullah Gurbaz once again showed his class as a batter and scored a breathtaking century, scoring 100 in 52 balls. Gurbaz will be eyeing a similar show in the next game and lead the Afghans to a series win.
- Ibrahim Zadran- Ibrahim Zadran also had a great game, scoring 59 in 43 balls. Zadran has also been very consistent for Afghanistan and will look for yet another impactful knock for the team.
- Noor Ahmed- Noor gave a tough time to UAE batters in the 1st T20I as he gave away just 14 runs in 3 overs. It will not be easy for UAE batters to score off him which increases his chances of picking more wickets.
Probable XI: Rahmanullah Gurbaz (wk), Hazratullah Zazai, Ibrahim Zadran (c), Azmatullah Omarzai, Mohammad Nabi, Najibullah Zadran, Karim Janat, Qais Ahmad, Noor Ahmad, Naveen-ul-Haq, Fazalhaq Farooqi
