Both, Bangladesh and Afghanistan are coming into this encounter with a victory to their name against Zimbabwe. Whilst Afghanistan convincingly defeated them, Bangladesh were given a close fight yet the home team managed to come out triumphant.
36% chances of scattered thunderstorms with the temperature ranging around the mid-20 degrees Celsius is expected during the course of the game.
Dhaka will present a good enough batting track but could turn out to be double-paced if the weather/rain conditions remain the same.
Predicted Playing XI:
Soumya Sarkar will have to deliver with a notable contribution at the top whereas the onus will be on Shakib al Hasan and Mushfiqur Rahim prominently to put up a good performance. Mustafizur Rahman would be integral to the team’s eventual display on the field as well.
Liton Das, Soumya Sarkar, Shakib Al Hasan(c), Mushfiqur Rahim(w), Sabbir Rahman, Mahmudullah, Mosaddek Hossain, Afif Hossain, Mohammad Saifuddin, Taijul Islam, Mustafizur Rahman
Najibullah Zadran and Asghar Afghan will lead the batting order whereas the likes of Mohammad Nabi and Rashid Khan will have a crucial role to play undoubtedly.
Hazratullah Zazai, Najibullah Zadran, Gulbadin Naib, Najeeb Tarakai, Rahmanullah Gurbaz(w), Asghar Afghan, Mohammad Nabi, Rashid Khan(c), Mujeeb Ur Rahman, Karim Janat, Fareed Malik
Atif Hossain impressed many people with his incredible temperament against Zimbabwe and his current run of form makes it integral to include him in the XI. The all-rounder duo of Shakib al Hasan and Mohammed Nabi will be banked upon to deliver the majority of the points though.
