Afghanistan vs Bangladesh T20 World Cup


Afghanistan breathed life into Group 1 of the Super 8s with a sensational win over Australia. They can now go on and make it even more memorable by reaching the semis of the T20 World Cup, but that would need a big win over Bangladesh. The stage is set for match #52 of the tournament, which will be played at the Arnos Vale Ground in Kingstown, St. Vincent, on Tuesday morning, IST local time.

It has been an amazing tournament for the Afghans, who have already beaten New Zealand and Australia. They can make it even more interesting with a win here, and they look well set to defeat Bangladesh.

  • Afghanistan have won 6 of their last 8 matches (T20s)
  • Bangladesh lost 6 of their last 10 matches against Afghanistan (T20s)
  • Bangladesh lost their last 2 matches (T20s)
  • Bangladesh lost 5 of their last 8 matches in the World Cup (T20s)

Head to Head


Afghanistan has played Bangladesh in 11 T20s so far, with six wins for the Afghans and five for the Bangladeshis. It is the Tigers who have won the last two matches played between these two teams.

Afghanistan Form


Afghanistan is third in Group 1 of the Super 8s with two points after two matches. They are only behind Australia on net run rate, but the gap is too wide, and they need a big win to cover that.

A win here for the Afghans would be enough if Australia lost to India. However, if they lose, it would come down to the net run rate, where the Afghans are far behind after losing by 47 runs to India.

Rahmanullah Gurbaz has three consecutive fifties for the Afghan side and is leading their charge (238 runs). With the ball, Fazalhaq Farooqi (15 wickets) has been impressive at the start of an innings, while Rashid Khan (ten) has also been among the wickets.

Afghanistan Team News


After a high-stakes win over Australia, Afghanistan could repeat the same XI.

Bangladesh Form


Bangladesh are at the at the bottom of the Group 1 standings after two consecutive losses and have no chance of qualifying for the semis unless there’s a massive turnaround of fortunes.

The Tigers lost to Australia by 28 runs (via the DLS method) in the first match of this stage, before a 50-run defeat at the hands of India set them back. There’s a lot of pride at stake, though, and Bangladesh will hope to end on a high.

Batting has been Bangladesh’s sore point this tournament, with Towhid Hridoy and Najmul Shanto being the only batters to aggregate 100+ runs. With the ball, it’s the youngsters Tanzim Hasan and Rishad Hossain leading the charge with 11 wickets each.

Bangladesh Team News


Taskin Ahmed was kept out of the playing XI last time out, and Bangladesh may go the same way. It would be interesting to see if Soumya Sarkar gets a game, though.
