Bangladesh vs Afghanistan Match preview

While Afghanistan beating Sri Lanka was no surprise, not many expected a hammer blow. The way Afghanistan dominated with both the bat and the ball proved once again that they are a force to be reckoned with in the shorter format. At one point, Sri Lanka was 75/9 and Rashid Khan didn’t even take one wicket. And again with the bat, the starters put on an impressive display by scoring 80-plus runs on the power play to end the chase.

Such a performance would not only have attracted the attention of many people from India and Pakistan but also from Bangladesh. In an ideal world, Bangladesh should have been the favorites on their way to a T20I against Afghanistan. But despite the success of the ODI format, Bangladesh simply failed to crack the T20 code, and Afghanistan has seen them adopt this format as a result.

It is absolutely up to senior professionals such as Shakib Al Hasan, Mushfiqur Rahim, and Mahmudullah to try to make a statement. For Bangladesh to fight in Australia later this year, something drastic has to change over the next two months, starting on Tuesday (August 30). For starters, your batting order needs to hit very clearly. While Afghanistan’s battle line-up has many styles, Bangladesh is largely lacking. In the bowling department, they have players like Mustafizur Rahman and Shakib Al Hasan to rely on, but scoring early against this lineup will be key.

BAN vs AFG Match Toss Prediction

In both Asian Cup 2022 matches, the team that wins the draw first chooses to play before winning the match. We predict that the captains will want to bowl first.

BAN vs AFG Pitch Report

This is the first IT20 on this ground since the closing stages of the World Cup last year. The track is always slower and offers more turns in Sharjah than in Dubai. The boundaries of Sharjah Cricket Stadium are not very large, and the pitch here is fairly straight and typically flat, but can also play a little slow when spinners are present. Batters generally like to bat here, and the team that wins the toss is expected to bat first if no spray is expected in the second half.

Weather forecast

Sunny and warm with the midday sun giving way to clear skies. At the start of this match, the temperature rises to 34 degrees.

Bangladesh vs Afghanistan Asia Cup 2022 Match 3 Expert Tip:
