Bangladesh vs Afghanistan Team Previews

Bangladesh (Match Odds – 1.55)

Bangladeshi team won the toss and chose to bat first. Naim Sheikh was bowled early in the innings. Munim Shahriar played some spectacular strokes during his 17-ball knock, but he was out to Rashid Khan just as he appeared to be getting settled. Liton Das, at number three, was instrumental in putting pressure back on the bowlers, scoring 60 off 44 balls. Following his dismissal, the run rate dropped, and Bangladesh could only manage a par score of 155 for 8 in 20 overs.

Liton Das maintained his good form from the ODIs, scoring 60 runs off 44 balls in the first match. Munim Shahriar (17 runs) and Afif Hossain (25 runs) cameoed in the batting order as the other batters struggled to make an impact. On a tricky wicket, they finished with a good score of 155/8 in 20 overs.

Nasum Ahmed began their chase with four wickets inside the power play and finished with figures of 4-0-10-4. Shakib Al Hasan and Shoriful Islam then took two and three wickets, respectively, to clear the lower order. Mustafizur Rahman and Mahedi Hasan also did an excellent job with the ball, bowling Afghanistan out for 94 runs.

Afghanistan (Match Odds – 2.45)

Chasing 155, Afghanistan lost both openers to Nasum Ahmed’s incredible spin bowling. The top three were dismissed for 8 runs, and Afghanistan was on the verge of a crushing defeat. Najibullah Zadran picked up where he left off in the ODI series, striking 27 off 26 balls. However, he kept losing partners on the other end, making the chasing task extremely difficult. Afghanistan was eventually bowled out for a paltry total of 94, with Bangladesh winning by a massive margin of 61 runs.

Afghanistan’s top order was reduced to 20/4 in 5 overs. Najibullah Zadran (27 runs) and Azmatullah Omarzai (20 runs) made brief appearances to help them reach a respectable total. The remaining batters were all bundled out for single digit scores, and they were eventually bowled out for 94 runs.

Azmatullah Omarzai and Fazalhaq Farooqi, a pace duo, picked up two wickets in this match with decent figures with the ball. Rashid Khan was outstanding with the ball, recording figures of 4-0-15-1. In the match, Mohammed Nabi, Mujeeb ur Rahman, and Qais Ahmed leaked a few runs and failed to trouble the batters effectively.

Afghanistan Squad

Mohammad Nabi (c), Afsar Zazai, Azmatullah Omarzai, Darwish Rasooli, Farid Ahmad Malik, Fazal Haq Farooqi, Hazratullah Zazai, Karim Janat, Mujib ur Rahman, Najibullah Zadran, Nijat Masoud, Qais Ahmad, Rahmanullah Gurbaz, Rashid Khan, Sharafuddin Ashraf and Usman Ghani

Bangladesh vs Afghanistan Toss Prediction

As the pitch may slow down as the match progresses, both teams may choose to bat first on this pitch. On this track, chasing will be difficult, and both captains will be aware of this.

To Win the Toss – Bangladesh – 1.85

To Win the Toss – Afghanistan – 1.85

Pitch and Weather Conditions

The pitch at Sher-e-Bangla was much better than in previous series, but it still aided the bowlers more than the batters. Because of the slowness of the track, spinners may have a slight advantage in this competition. In this match, we anticipate average scores of 150-160 runs.

The weather in Dhaka is bright and sunny, with little to no chance of rain on match day. We anticipate a complete match with no external interruptions.

Bangladesh vs Afghanistan Match Prediction

Afghanistan’s batting lineup struggled to form middle-order partnerships and struggled after an early setback in the power play. Rashid Khan is a key wicket-taker for their spinners. Bangladesh used their experience on these surfaces to their advantage, batting and bowling brilliantly to win the match. They will be buoyed by their convincing victory in the first match. We expect Bangladesh to win this match, but the toss may play a significant role because chasing is difficult here.

Bangladesh is the favourite to beat Afghanistan at the odds of 1.55.

  • In the previous game, Bangladesh spinners had combined figures of 11-0-45-6, while Afghan spinners had combined figures of 11-0-79-2.
  • In the match, both teams’ pacers took four wickets each.
  • Bangladesh ended an eight-match losing streak with a victory in their most recent match.
