UAE vs AFG Betting Tips

  • UAE’s batting stalwart Mohammed Waseem’s took the game away from Afghanistan during powerplay overs after registering a blistering knock of 91(50). He scored runs at a record-breaking strike rate of nearly 190 which blew the Afghani bowlers away. He is our top tip for UAE’s highest run scorer against Afghanistan in the 3rd T20I. Zahoor Khan was the pick of the bowlers for the UAE in the second game. He kept the Afghani batsmen in check and earned figures of 2/25 which didn’t allow Afghanistan to post a big total. He is our pick for UAE’s top wicket-taker in the 3rd T20I.
  • Najibullah Zadran was the top scorer in the last game for Afghanistan. His innings of 37(29) came at a strike rate of 129 and added some valuable runs to Afghanistan’s impoverished first innings total. We are backing him to be Afghanistan’s highest run scorer in this match. The Afghanistan all-rounder Karim Janat was the only wicket taker in the last game who took a prize wicket of Mohammed Waseem by denying a well-deserved century. Being capable both with the bat and the ball he is our strong choice for Afghanistan’s top wicket-taker against UAE.
  • After being a consistent performer in both the T20Is, we recommend backing Mohammed Waseem to score over 21.5 runs in this clash.

UAE vs AFG 3rd T20 Match Prediction & Betting Tips

The third game of the Abu Dhabi Friendship series will be played on the 19th of February 2023 at Sheikh Zayed Stadium where the spirited UAE side would clash against a deflated Afghanistan side one last time in the series. The game is scheduled to commence at 15:30 local time.

After registering a thumping 9 wicket victory over Afghanistan on Saturday, the series has now opened up for both sides. Their dominance with the bat pushed Afghanistan to an all-time low as they were unable to make any recovery during the match. With a win already under their belt, UAE have one eye on the series and would be looking to stun Afghanistan again in an emphatic fashion. 

Afghanistan on the other have been dazzled very badly by the UAE blitzkrieg. They looked bogged down on all fronts and find themselves at the risk of losing the series. But with all the experience they have got as an international T20 side, we expect Afghanistan to bounce and overcome the UAE encounter in a rather closely contested game.

The Saturday’s win would have done UAE’s confidence a world of good. Their win percentage in T20I has gradually improved. They have displayed great determination and a good fighting spirit against one of the most improved sides in modern day cricket. If they perform with the same intensity in this game, an embarrassing upset for Afghanistan could be on the cards.

Afghanistan on the other hand has a very impressive T20I win record of over 65%. However, they have been pushed to the brink of a humiliating series defeat following their shambolic loss in yesterday’s fixture. Their morale as a team would have hit rock bottom. They will mindful of the Mohammed Waseem threat and would need to work out a robust plan to content this threat.

UAE vs AFG Match Toss Prediction

With the surface expecting to aid both the bowlers and the batsmen, the toss may not play a very crucial role in deciding the outcome of the game. Keeping in mind the way the pitch behaved in the first two games, either captain would want to bat first and put enough runs on the board.

UAE vs AFG, Sheikh Zayed Stadium Pitch Report

The pitch at Abu Dhabi's Sheikh Zayed Stadium is a flat deck, especially ideal for batting. As time progresses the surface is expected to slow down a fraction which will bring slow bowlers into the game.

Abu Dhabi Weather Report

The weather in Abu Dhabi is expected to be reasonable around 25 C with clear skies and no chances of rain. Humidity is predicted to be at around 60% and can shoot up during the day.

UAE Team News & Playing 11

UAE Team News

UAE will be looking to go unchanged as all their players are in fine form and are rising up to the occasion whenever needed.

UAE Key Players

  • Muhammad Waseem- Waseem has been one of the most consistent and lethal batsmen for the UAE in white ball cricket of late. He has amassed 595 runs in 14 innings at an average of 42.50. He blasted his way through and played a blinder of an innings scoring 91 of just 50 deliveries, taking his side to an emphatic victory. Besides, his lethal strike rate of over 150 coupled with powerful strokeplay can give sleepless nights to many high quality bowlers.  
  • Vriitya Aravind - The Indian-origin wicket-keeper batsman is a rising young star and is also one of the leading run-getters for the UAE. He is usually known to play the anchoring innings and played his part very well in the last game by hitting the winning runs for his side. Besides, he has a steady batting average of around 29 in T20I. In his short T20 career, he achieved a top score of 97* which proves that once he settles down, he can dominate the bowlers and play the long innings.
  • Chundangapoyil Rizwan – The UAE skipper emerged as the highest run-scorer for his side in the 1st T20I and remained till the end to see his side home. The Kerala-born batter played a well-composed innings of 48(41) which included 2 sixes and fours a piece. After missing out on a well-deserved half-century, we expect him to bounce back again and notch up yet another useful innings for his side.

UAE Team Form

UAE have finally managed to secure a second T20I win against a full-member nation in a while now. They appear more threatening than ever and are looking to go all guns blazed against a highly experienced Afghan side.

Afghanistan Team News & Playing 11

AFG Team News

After sustaining an embarrassing defeat in Saturday’s fixture, we are likely to see some forced changes primarily in their bowling department which led them down very badly.

AFG Key Players

  • Najibullah Zadran – Zadran is a powerful hitter of the ball and his strike rate in T20I is at a staggering high of 141.51. He has a prolific T20I record averaging 32.21 with a top score 0f 73. He demonstrated his worth in the last game and scored a useful 37(29) to get his side to a face saving total. 
  • Karim Janat – Known for his all-round capabilities with the bat and the ball, Janat is a true asset for his side. He has played some useful cameos for his team in the past. In the first game, he showed his maturity and scored 53(38) in tricky conditions which helped Afghanistan earn a win after they had lost their way in the middle overs. In the second game, he emerged as the only wicket taker chipping in with the ball with figures of 1/13 in his 2 overs. 
  • Rashid Khan – The T20 stalwart needs no introduction as he is in the form of his life. Crafty leg spinner and a useful lower-order pinch hitter, Rashid delivers both with the bat and the ball. Although he went wicketless in the last game, he bowled very economically and dried up the runs significantly when the UAE batters were looking to go ballistic. Compared to his team mates, Khan looked the most threatening bowler and conceded only 16 in his 4 allotted overs.

AFG Team Form

Afghanistan has had a topsy turvy ride so far in this series. They won the opening game convincingly and lost the second won in a very embarrassing fashion. They will need to regroup again ahead of this fixture and get things right this time around.

Afghanistan Predicted Playing 11

Hazratullah Zazai, Rahmanullah Gurbaz, Ibrahim Zadran, Karim Janat, Najibullah Zadran, Afsar Zazai (WK), Rashid Khan (c), Naveen-ul-Haq,

UAE vs Afghanistan Head to Head

Both teams have clashed on 8 occasions and in 6 instances, Afghanistan has managed to have the upper hand over the UAE. But the last game would have jolted them very badly as UAE managed to stage a remarkable comeback for the first time since their last win in 2016.

UAE vs Afghanistan Betting Odds

After being 1-1, the game is evenly poised. However, a chance for an Afghani win is still a possibility. But looking at how the UAE team fared in this series, the hosts are willing to throw everything at them to prevent a series defeat.

Hence a win for Afghanistan looks more likely and they are at odds of 1.17 whereas a win for UAE is at odds of 4.84. We expect Afghanistan to score a total of over 80.5 runs in the first 10 overs.

UAE vs AFG Top Team Batsmen

Muhammad Waseem, Vriitya Aravind and the skipper Chundangapoyil Rizwan are our favourite batting picks for the UAE. They have consistently scored runs for their side and their contribution in the last game got UAE comfortably over the line against Afghanistan. The trio batted sensibly and approached the chase in a very clinical manner leaving the Afghani bowlers clueless on the field.

Karim Janat, Afsar Zazai and Najibullah Zadran are our top batting picks for Afghanistan. The trio is known for their explosive strike rates and has the ability to shift gears in the later stage of the game. Najibullah has been scoring runs consistently in the series and his carefully orchestrated innings in the second game helped his side get to a respectable total. Karim Janat and Afsar Zazai haven’t had the best outing with the bat in the last game but with so much T20I experience under their belt, they can take the gam away from the opposition on any given day.

UAE vs AFG Top Team Bowlers

Zahoor Khan, Junaid Siddique and Muhammad Jawadullah are our favourite bowling picks from the UAE squad. They displayed their bowling abilities in the last game and kept the Afghani batters in check. Zahoor bowled exceptionally well and delivered two crucial blows to bring the scoring rate down. Siddique also picked up 2 important scalps which further dented Afghanistan’s hope of posting a challenging score. 

Without a doubt, Rashid Khan, Karim Janat and Azmatullah Omarzai are our favourite bowling picks from the Afghanistan dugout. Rashid was the pick of the bowlers from the last game who although went wicketless, was able to tighten the screws during the middle overs while his other team mates were taken to cleaners. Karim bowled reasonably well at an economy rate of 6.5 RPO emerging as the only wicket taker from the last game. Omarzai had an off day in yesterday’s fixture but with his natural ability to swing the ball at pace, he is likely to cause problems for the UAE batters.

🏆 UAE vs Afghanistan Prediction

With the series evenly poised at 1-1 up, both Afghanistan and the UAE have all to play for in the final match of the Abu Dhabi Friendship Series. An anticipation of an easy win for Afghanistan is less likely as UAE have shown that they have the required firework to counter the Afghan aggression. However, with experience on their side, we recommend Afghanistan to marginally sneak in with a narrow series victory but UAE will try everything possible to prevent that from happening at their home turf.
