Dhaka, Sept 14 (UNB) - In the second game of the ongoing Tri-series T20, Zimbabwe won the toss against Afghanistan and opted to bat first.
Previously, Zimbabwe faced Afghanistan in seven T20Is and lost all of them.
Unlike the tournament opener, there was no rain before the game today. So, the wicket of this match might be helpful for the batsmen.
