Series: Afghanistan vs West Indies
Venue: Bharat Ratna Shri Atal Bihari Vajpayee Ekana Cricket Stadium, Lucknow
Date: November 17, 2019
Time: 7:00 p.m. IST
After losing the first T20I by 30 runs, Afghanistan made a strong comeback in the second match of the series as they beat West Indies by 41 runs. Although the batsmen struggled once again on a tricky pitch, their bowlers were on song once again.
West Indies, on the other hand, would want to consider this defeat as a minor blip in their tour which has been near-perfect otherwise. They won the ODI series by a 3-0 margin and looked quite good to do the same in the T20Is as well. But this match showed that they have some areas of concern to look after and will look to rectify that to come back even stronger in the series decider on Sunday.
The weather forecast says that the skies will be partially cloudy and there is no chance of rain. But the air quality would be poor.
This is the third game of the series and the pitch is expected to be on the slower side. The second game was a low-scoring encounter and the second match could be the same once again.
