This is Afghanistan’s fourth straight appearance at the World T20, but they only have one win, over Hong Kong, to show for their efforts. With Hassan, Shapoor and Shahzad back together again – and a place alongside Zimbabwe, the weaker of the two Full Members in the opening-round four-team qualifying groups – Afghanistan are strong favourites to advance into the main draw for the first time.
Prior visits have paired them up against fast-bowling heavy teams, and their batting has struggled to adapt. But even against a fast-bowling deficient team like Nepal, Afghanistan were too eager to count their chickens before they hatched. Chastened by a 1-2 mark in the opening round of 2014, they seem determined to fulfil their potential in 2016.
Afghanistan vs Netherlands Match Prediction
Afghanistan will win the toss and choose to bat first and win the match. The batting has been beefed up by the return of wicketkeeper Mohammad Shahzad, who was dropped ahead of the 2015 World Cup on fitness grounds. His recent efforts against Zimbabwe have galvanised others on the comeback trail, like Karim Sadiq. Younger talents such as Noor Ali Zadran and Usman Ghani have also improved, to provide Shahzad and Sadiq needed support, building a bridge to the middle-order pyrotechnics from Mohammad Nabi, Gulbadin Naib and Najibullah Zadran. Afghanistan’s overall depth has also improved in recent times. Twin series victories over Zimbabwe were achieved without the fast-bowling duo of Hamid Hassan and Shapoor Zadran.
