Mohammad Shehzad will not be available for this series. There is some rain expected in St Lucia and the wicket is likely to play slow as well. The Windies might give all-rounder Roston Chase a chance.
WI – K Powell, Lewis, Hope, Carter, Mohammad, Chase, Holder, Nurse, Bishoo/R Powell, Joseph, Gabriel
AFG – Ghani/Zazai, Shafiqullah, R Shah, Nabi, Stanikzai, Shenwari, Noor Ali, Naib, Rashid, Shapoor/Dawlat, Hamza
Players who cannot be ignored
Rashid – He has become a genuine wicket taking spinner for the Afghanistan side. Just look at his impressive numbers in limited overs cricket. Drop him at your risk.
Nabi – Always a handy pick. This veteran will be a chief contributor with the ball and can also smack a few with the willow.
Gabriel – Has suddenly become the leader of the pace attack for the Windies with the new ball. Expect a few wickets from him.
Holder – The Windies skipper is likely to give points from both bat and ball.
