AFGH vs WI Dream11 Match Prediction: Afghanistan will be wanting to make a comeback in the second T20I in order to stay alive in the series after enduring a 30 runs defeat to West Indies.
West Indies batting first scored 164 courtesy a solid knock of 68 from 41 deliveries from Evin Lewis, followed by a vital cameo of 32 from 22 balls by Kieran Pollard towards the end.
Afghanistan in reply could only manage 134 on the scoreboard. Kesrick Williams was the pick of the bowlers as he scalped three wickets for just 17 runs in four overs and was given good support by Sheldon Cottrell, Jason Holder and Pollard.
Afghanistan has limited time to lift their spirits as the series edges in favour of West Indies.

Though Mohammad Nabi couldn't contribute significantly in the last game, his experience and all-round qualities make him one of the key players for Afghanistan.
Rashid Khan's dynamism with the ball in hand alongside partner in crime Mujeeb ur Rahaman has often got Afghanistan heaps of wickets in the past. Rashid Khan has picked 18 wickets in his last eight games, while Mujeeb has 10 from 7.
Sheldon Cottrell bowled an economical spell last time around and also scalped a wicket. Cottrell's nippy pace could get the better of Afghani batsmen. Cottrell has scalped 16 wickets in his last 10 games for Windies.
Evin Lewis is fresh from a quickfire half-century in the last game and will be thriving in confidence for the next one.
