Afghanistan vs Zimbabwe, 1st ODI Prediction:
Afghanistan has the upper hand over Zimbabwe after the T20 series win and they will be going to ODI series with high confidence and on the other had Zimbabwe team are under pressure. Afghani team looks strong with their batting and bowling line-up. Mohammad Shahzad, Mohammad Nabi and Asghar Stanikzai were quite impressive with their bat in the T20 series while Rashid Khan and Nabi continued troubling Zimbabwean batsmen with the ball.
Zimbabwe is also a quite strong team with well balanced bats men and bowlers. Opening batsmen Solomon Mire and Hamilton Masakadza did well with bat in the previous matches but they need to stay strong and put pressure on Afghani spinners. Fast-bowler also did a great work in T20 series but they need to come up with a new strategy to win the game as Afghanistan had a great record at Sharjah, they won 11 matches out of 19 one-day international played on the ground. Looking the previous matches and records on the pitch it looks like hosts clearly have an upper hand and with their spin attack they may win the 1st ODI match.
