Afghan side will be lead yet another time by their successful captain Asghar Stanikzai who has been captaining the side in all formats. Belligerent Stanikzai has got some runs under his belt in a few of his recent outings and will be looking to thrash the opponent in the middle order. However, what Afghanistan will be needing more from him will be his experience as a captain and how he captains his side is going to be crucial for Afghanistan’s chances in the series.

Batting Strengths

The main stay for Afghanistan in the T20I series is definitely going to be the blistering Shehzad at the top. The guy really has got some firepower in his bat and will play a crucial part for Afghanistan if they have to win it against the Caribbean side. Besides, they will be depending on Asghar Stanikzai, Mohammad Nabi, Shafiqullah and Samiullah Shenwari in the batting department. All these guys have got some credibility in the international circuit and will be crucial for Afghanistan’s chances in the T20I series.

Bowling Strengths

The bowling basically depends on the veteran Shapoor Zadran but he couldn’t play at his best in the series against Ireland and will be expected to play his A game against West Indies. Besides him, Afghanistan will be depending on Rashid Khan who picked 7 wickets in 3 T20Is against Ireland. The latest inclusion to the squad Karim Janat was also among wickets as he picked 5 wickets in his 3 outings lately. Mohammad Nabi and Amir Hamza can also roll their arm over.
