Pitch Report:

The previous game in Abu Dhabi saw a sporting pitch where both batsmen and bowlers had a fair chance. It is unlikely that the upcoming match will be an excessively high-scoring one.

Weather Report:
At the moment, there is no forecast for rain. The temperature is expected to be around 22 degrees Celsius with humidity levels in the 60s.

UAE Preview:

Chundangapoyil Rizwan’s team had opportunities to win the last game. They had a good start with the bat but failed to score enough runs. The UAE captain will be proud of his bowlers’ efforts in the previous match. With the series on the line, Rizwan will encourage his team to play aggressively and try to level the series.
Afghanistan Preview:

The win in the first game, Rashid Khan, the Afghan skipper, would have hoped for a better performance from his batsmen. They struggled to score runs and rotate the strike in the previous match, while the bowlers performed well on a spin-friendly pitch. Rashid will be looking for an improved performance from his team to secure the series in two games.

United Arab Emirates = 14%
