Rashid Khan, Mujeeb ur Rahman and Mohammad Nabi were in the syllabus.

But, it was Karim Janat who popped up in the exam.

Thanks to Karim’s brilliance, Afghanistan leveled the T20I series 1-1. It is the most welcome boost after losing the ODI series 3-0 to a West Indies side that was getting used to the winning feeling.

Key to an Afghanistan win

Victory was achieved, but the regular loss of wickets is a concern. Just as the Afghans would build some momentum, they would lose a wicket or two, forcing them to get back into a stage of rebuilding.

Can Hazratullah Zazai and Rahmanullah Gurbaz produce the fireworks for a little longer? Can the experienced trio of Nabi, Asghar and Najibullah deliver more than they have? With Afghanistan’s lower order possessing the ability to hit big, a platform set can mean a big total.

But, with the Windies taking care against Afghanistan’s spin, the onus was on the seamers to cause a surprise. That man was Karim Janat, producing one of the great T20I spells to lift Afghanistan to victory. Can Afghanistan produce the goods as a unit again against their hard-hitting opponents?

Key to a West Indies win

The Windies’ death bowling left a bit to be desired. However, their batting was an abomination, tied down by dot ball after dot ball, which turned into wickets. They had no answer for Janat, of which they have to find an answer for 24 hours later.

The challenge will be to handle Janat a lot better, along with the threat that is Afghanistan’s spin-trio.

Also, can the Windies continue to take regular wickets with the ball? They have largely kept the Afghans in check throughout the series, and with the series on the line, they will need to do so again. Kesrick Williams has been excellent, but can Sheldon Cottrell and Hayden Walsh better support the likes of Williams, Holder and Paul?

Possible Playing 11

Karim Janat was an inspired selection. Afghanistan could go in with the same team.

Afghanistan: 1. Hazratullah Zazai, 2. Rahmanullah Gurbaz (wk), 3. Karim Janat, 4. Asghar Afghan, 5. Ibrahim Zadran, 6. Mohammad Nabi, 7. Najibullah Zadran, 8. Gulbadin Naib, 9. Rashid Khan (c), 10. Naveen-ul-Haq, 11. Mujeeb ur Rahman

West Indies have enjoyed winning form all tour. But, Denesh Ramdin has a hamstring issue, and Shai Hope has been called in as cover.

West Indies: 1. Brandon King, 2. Evin Lewis, 3. Shimron Hetmyer, 4. Shai Hope (wk), 5. Kieron Pollard (c), 6. Sherfane Rutherford, 7. Jason Holder, 8. Keemo Paul, 9. Hayden Walsh, 10. Kesrick Williams, 11. Sheldon Cottrell

Pitch and Conditions

Pace bowlers who have taken the pace off the ball have found success. Also, one wicket has also brought about two or three this series. Again, expect the pitch to be a little on the slower side.

Match Prediction

An outstanding fightback by Afghanistan, led by Karim Janat.

Again, anything is possible. However, the Windies, under Kieron Pollard, will be out for a much-improved display. They could take this out in a tight match.
