AFG vs ZIM Stats : Afghanistan will face off Zimbabwe in the second and final Test at Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi on Wednesday, 10 March. Zimbabwe lead 1-0 in the series after an impressive 10 wickets win in the first Test at the same venue. Afghanistan whose batting was very poor will look to bounce back with an improved performance and their batsmen need to bat sensibly against the Zimbabwe pacers who were relentless in the first Test. On the other side, Zimbabwe who put up a good show with ball will hope that their pacers will continue their good form so that they can clinch a historic series win. For them captain Sean Williams, Sikandar Raza and pacers Blessing Muzarabani and Victor Nyauchi will be key players.
