Bangladesh vs Afghanistan Tips


Afghanistan started the tournament in superb fashion while Bangladesh have been very underwhelming in the T20 format over the last two years. I am backing Afghanistan to win against the odds yet again.

  • Bangladesh’s Shakib Al Hasan is the top T20 allrounder in the world.
  • Afghanistan won their last T20 match against Bangladesh.
  • Afghanistan beat Sri Lanka in their Asia Cup opener.
  • Afghanistan’s Hazratullah Zazai scored 37* in the last match.

Head to Head


Afghanistan and Bangladesh have won two apiece of their last four battles against one another. They played a series earlier this year which was shared 1-1, Afghanistan won the final match by eight wickets.

Bangladesh Form


Bangladesh come into the Asia Cup having just beaten Zimbabwe 2-1 in a T20 series. Their form has however been a bit up-and-down in the shortest format. 

The Tigers poor form resulted in head coach Russell Domingo being sacked as the T20 coach, although he remains as the coach for other formats.

This will be a tough game for Bangladesh, Afghanistan are no longer minnows, as they showed earlier this year where they drew a series against The Tigers.

Bangladesh Team News


Shakib Al Hasan is the key to the Bangladesh success. He is the world’s top all-rounder and captain of Bangladesh. They have plenty of experience in the batting department and some world class bowlers.

Afghanistan Form


Afghanistan got their Asia Cup off to a magnificent start, beating Sri Lanka by eight wickets in Dubai.

Bowling first, Fazalhaq Farooqi took 3-11 in 3.4 overs while Mujeeb Ur Rahman took 2-24 and Mohammad Nabi 2-13 in four overs. Sri Lanka were all out for a paltry 105 runs.

In response Afghanistan wasted no time in winning the match. They reached the target in 10.1 overs as Rahmanullah Gurbaz smashed 40 off just 18 balls. Hazratulla Zazail added 37* in an 83-run opening stand.

Afghanistan Team News


With the pitch expected to be slow and take some turn, Afghanistan should retain the same lineup.

Verdict

I am backing Afghanistan to upset the odds with Hazratullah Zazai tipped to top score.

For Bangladesh, Shakib Al Hasan can be looked at in the best batsman market.
