Bangladesh wrapped up the ODI series by 2-1 margin and both teams are all set to face off in a 2-match T20I series. Afghanistan will have an upper hand in the T20Is owing to their superior record and form in the last 2-3 years. They will look to win the T20I series and a win in the opening match will give them an unassailable 1-0 lead. Bangladesh on the other hand have been very dominant in the T20Is at home beating Australia and New Zealand teams. But, they recently lost the T20I series against Pakistan and will be eager tor return to winning ways.

Bangladesh Preview

Bangladesh will be led by Mahmudullah who is in patchy form with just 43 runs in 3 ODIs. Liton Das is expected to play a huge role after his superb 136 & 86 runs in the last 2 ODIs recently. Mushfiqur Rahim and Afif Hossain too were amongst the runs recently. All-rounders duo of Shakib Al Hasan and Mahedi Hasan will further strengthen their batting unit.  

They have an experienced pace attack with the likes of Mustafizur Rahman, Taskin Ahmed, and Shoriful Islam in their playing XI. Nasum Ahmed, Shakib Al Hasan, and Mahedi Hasan will take care of the spin bowling department. Afif Hossain and Mahmudullah will chip in with vital overs if needed.

Top players to bet on: Liton Das, Mustafizur Rahman, Shakib Al Hasan

Bangladesh Predicted Playing XI:

Mahmudullah (c), Liton Das, Shakib Al Hasan, Mushfiqur Rahim (wk), Mohammed Naim, Afif Hossain, Nurul Hasan, Taskin Ahmed, Shoriful Islam, Mustafizur Rahman, Mahedi Hasan

Weather Conditions

Dhaka has bright and sunny weather with very less to no chances of rain on the match day. We expect a full match with no external interruptions. 

Venue Details

Sher-e-Bangla was a minefield in the last few T20I matches played here but going by the ODIs we expect the track to be balanced. Spinners might have a slight upper hand in this contest. We expect the average scores to be around 150-160 runs in this match.

Toss: To Bowl

Both teams might opt to bowl first on this pitch as they will be unaware of the conditions and will look to put the opposition on line first.

Afghanistan has a few changes in their batting line-up & pace attack in this series but their main strength is the spin attack which might cause havoc if pitch aids them. They have been performing superbly in T20Is off late. Bangladesh have an experienced side with great depth in batting and bowling attacks. They must look to continue their good form from ODIS into the T20Is. We expect Afghanistan to win this match owing to their X-factor bowlers capable to taking wickets at will.

Afghanistan will win the match
