Bangladesh vs Afghanistan

Bangladesh vs Afghanistan

Bangladesh (Match Odds – 1.15):


Litton Das will captain the team in the absence of Shakib al Hasan, who is out with an injury. Das wants to avenge their loss to Afghanistan three years ago. They are a powerful team with an experienced batting lineup, and the Bangladeshi captain wants to get the most out of his players in this game.

Najmul Hossain Shanto and Tamil Iqbal will aim to get the side off to a good start at the top. The middle order is experienced, and the team will need a strong performance from Mominul Haque, Mushfiqur Rahim, and Litton Das. Down the order, Mahmudul Hasan Joy and Mehidy Hasan Miraz provide stability.

Shoriful Islam and Khaled Ahmed, who will look to make early inroads with the new ball, will be expected to deliver good spells for the side. In this game, Ebadot Hossain and Mehidy Hasan Miraz will look to exploit the conditions and cause problems for the Afghans. Taijul Islam must perform admirably in a supporting role.

Full Squad:

Litton Das (captain), Tamim Iqbal, Zakir Hasan, Najmul Hossain Shanto, Mominul Haque, Mushfiqur Rahim, Mehidy Hasan Miraz, Taijul Islam, Khaled Ahmed, Ebadot Hossain, Taskin Ahmed, Shoriful Islam, Mahmudul Hasan Joy, Shahadat Hossain, Musfik Hasan

Afghanistan (Match Odds – 5.30):


Hashmatullah Shahidi’s team returns to Test cricket after a 26-month absence, and several players will make their debuts in this game. The team is missing its top bowlers, who were rested for this series. It weakens their bowling attack, and Shahidi will need to make the most of the resources at his disposal if he is to win this game.

The Bangladeshi attack will test Ibrahim Zadran and Nasir Jamal at the top of the order. The side has its strengths in the middle order, and they will look for a strong performance from Rahmat Shah, Shahidi, and Abdul Malik. They will also require contributions from Afsar Zazai, Abdul Malik, and Karim Janat.

The bowling attack will face an experienced batting line-up, and they will need good new-ball spells from Yamin Ahmadzai and Amir Hamza. Izharulhaq Naveed and Zahir Khan will have to bowl long spells and use their variations to trouble the Bangladeshis. Abdul Malik and Janat add bowling options to the team.

Full Squad:

Hashmatullah Shahidi (captain), Rahmat Shah, Afsar Zazai (wicketkeeper), Ikram Alikhil (wicketkeeper), Ibrahim Zadran, Karim Janat, Izharulhaq Naveed, Yamin Ahmadzai, Zahir Khan, Amir Hamza, Bahir Shah, Abdul Malik, Mohammad Ibrahim, Nasir Jamal, Nijat Masood, Noor Ali Zadran, Azmatullah Omarzai, Sayed Shirzad, Zia-ur-Rehman

Players to watch out for:

Ibrahim Zadran

Ibrahim Zadran has been in sensational form recently, scoring three centuries in 11 One-Day Internationals and scoring 98 against Sri Lanka in the first ODI. He did, however, play four test matches and score 356 runs at an average of 44.50, which is quite good for any batter. He also took one test wicket, which surprised him.

Yamin Ahmadzai

Yamin Ahmadzai is one of Afghanistan’s underrated players, as he has only played a few matches so far, but he has made an impact in each one. He took 11 wickets in 5 test matches, but his first-class record is quite good, and if there is any assistance for the pace bowler, he can use it.

Amir Hamza

Amir Hamza has been sensational in test matches, picking up 16 wickets in just three matches, which is one of the best starts anyone can get.

Possible Playing XI:

Hashmatullah Shahidi (c), Afsar Zazai (wk), Ibrahim Zadran, Rahmat Shah, Karim Janat, Yamin Ahmadzai, Zahir Khan, Nasir Jamal, Izharulhaq Naveed, Amir Hamza, Abdul Malik

Bangladesh vs Afghanistan Toss Prediction

Any team looking for a 4th innings chase against a quality spin attack should avoid this venue. Batting becomes difficult on this wicket after Day 3. We expect the captain to win the toss and bat first on this wicket, aiming for a large lead in the first innings.

Bangladesh vs Afghanistan Pitch Report

Shere Bangla National Stadium is a typical sub-continental track, with batsmen enjoying batting in the first couple of days and spinners dominating as the pitch wears down after Day 3. Fast bowlers struggle at this venue, and batsmen who build their innings do well.

The skies over Dhaka are cloudy, and rain is forecast for the game. The batsmen will face difficulties because they will not have the flat surface they are accustomed to at this venue. The wet outfield will also make it difficult for spinners. The team batting first will try to score 350 runs or more.

Bangladesh vs Afghanistan Prediction

Afghanistan returns to Test cricket after a lengthy absence. Many of the players on this team have never played in this format and will not have enough time to adjust to the game’s pace. The Afghan bowlers must perform admirably if the team is to win. Bangladesh has had domestic success and a strong batting lineup. In this game, their bat and ball experience puts them ahead of Afghanistan. Check out the odds at Cricbaba!

Bangladesh is the favourite to beat Afghanistan at the odds of 1.15.

Bangladesh vs Afghanistan Most Recommended Player for Bet:

Shakib Al Hasan is one of the best all-rounders in the world of cricket, and he is a key player in keeping Bangladesh in the top ten in tests and ODIs because he does everything for his team. He is currently ranked third in the world, having previously been ranked first. He appeared in 66 test matches, scoring 4454 runs at an average of 39.07 and taking 233 wickets, demonstrating his dominance. He scored 87 runs and took two wickets in his most recent match against Afghanistan.
