The third match of the Bangladesh T20I tri-series will be played between Bangladesh and Afghanistan at Shere Bangla National Stadium in Dhaka.


Both Bangladesh and Afghanistan have played one match each and both have won. However, the opponents of both the teams have been Zimbabwe who are not regarded as one of the fiercest sides in top-level cricket.

While Afghanistan beat Zimbabwe comfortably by 28 runs, Bangladesh were almost pushed out of the game at one point. It was the rearguard half-century from Afif Hossain that brought them back into the game and helped them win by three wickets.

Bangladesh looked off-colour in the opening match with skipper Shakib Al Hasan going for one shy of 50 runs from his four overs while the rest, apart from Mosaddek Hossain did not make an impact either.

Their top order was shaky as the team lost six wickets for just 60 runs. Had it not been for the superb knocks towards the end, Bangladesh would have found themselves on the wrong side of the line.

As for Afghanistan, they were right on the money in their first match with Rahmanullah Gurbaz, Najibullah Zadran and Mohammad Nabi contributing with the bat while Rashid Khan and Farid Malik stepped up with the ball.

Afghanistan start favourites in this match on the basis of current form.

Let's have a look at the probable playing XI of both teams:

Bangladesh- Liton Das, Soumya Sarkar, Shakib Al Hasan, Mushfiqur Rahim, Sabbir Rahman, Mahmudullah, Mosaddek Hossain, Afif Hossain, Mohammad Saifuddin, Taijul Islam, Mustafizur Rahman

Afghanistan- Hazratullah Zazai, Najibullah Zadran, Gulbadin Naib, Najeeb Tarakai, Rahmanullah Gurbaz, Asghar Afghan, Mohammad Nabi, Rashid Khan, Mujeeb Ur Rahman, Karim Janat, Fareed Malik
