Afghanistan has lost the last ten internationals (including the opening game against the West Indies) and faces a serious challenge on Saturday, November 9, in the second ODI.
Rashid Khan’s term as regular captain of Afghanistan began after clear wins in the singles test and the T20I Tri-Series in Bangladesh on Wednesday in Lucknow with a defeat on seven wickets against the West Indies. The magnitude of the outcome might admit that they were surpassed, but there were moments in the game in which they could dominate, but instead, they passed the advantage on to the opponent – not much different than in the past.

They were in a 126/2 strength position on the 27th after being placed in the bat but lost their way thereafter to stumble on 194 on the 46th. Rashid and Mohammad Nabi, their most experienced bowlers, played with discipline, but both failed to catch a wicket – something they will explore in the coming games.
Through a change of leadership, the West Indies could deliver a complete performance under the new Limited Overs skipper Kieron Pollard. The bowling was first class, the former skipper Jason Holder led with 2/21 of his 10 overs.
Visitors now have the opportunity to complete the series for their first series win since August 2014.
What Happened In Last ODI Between Afghanistan vs West Indies?
Sheldon Cottrell and Holder reduced Afghanistan to 15/2 in the sixth after Pollard opted for the Bowl. Rahmat Shah and Ikram Ali Khil have revived the innings with a 111-year partnership at a steady pace, but Ikram’s slip-up was the beginning of a collapse in which Afghanistan lost the last eight wickets for 68 runs.
At 195, the West Indies also lost two fast wickets, but without the pressure on the scoreboard, it only required a significant partnership to take complete control. That’s exactly what the ever-reliable Shai Hope and Roston Chase, who have undefeated 77 and 94, managed to lead their team to a comfortable seven-goal victory.
