Bangladesh wrapped up the ODI series by 2-1 margin and went onto register a victory in the first match. Afghanistan need to come up with spirted performances to win this match and level the series. Bangladesh on the other hand cannot lose the series now and will be eager to win this match and series 2-0. Both teams will not take this match lightly as this match will be a good practice in the lead up to the T20 World Cup later this year.

Pace duo of Azmatullah Omarzai and Fazalhaq Farooqi picked up 2 wickets in this match with decent figures with the ball. Rashid Khan was excellent with the ball with figures of 4-0-15-1. Mohammed Nabi, Mujeeb ur Rahman, and Qais Ahmed leaked a few runs and failed to trouble the batters effectively in the match.

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 pitch was much better when compare to last few series but still was aiding the bowlers more than the batters. Spinners might have a slight upper hand in this contest due to the slowness of the track. We expect the average scores to be around 150-160 runs in this match.

Toss: To Bat

Both teams might opt to bat first on this pitch as the pitch might slow down as the match progresses. Chasing will not be easy on this track and both captains will be aware of it.

Afghanistan batting line-up failed to build partnerships in the middle and struggled after the early set back in the power play. Their spinners rely heavily on Rashid Khan for wickets. Bangladesh brought out their experience on these surfaces and batted & bowled brilliantly to win the match. They will high on confidence after the win in the first match comfortably. We expect Bangladesh to win this match but toss might play a big role as chasing is very difficult here.

Bangladesh will win the match & the series 2-0
