The sixth match of the Bangladesh T20I tri-series will be played between Bangladesh and Afghanistan at the Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium in Chattogram.


This match will essentially be the dress rehearsal before the final to be played between Bangladesh and Afghanistan on Tuesday. Afghanistan lost against Zimbabwe in the last match by seven wickets which now means that they have two wins from three games. The result of that match however did not change things as Afghanistan and Bangladesh are all set to take on each other in the the tri-series final.

Bangladesh, on the other hand, have two wins as well after they beat Zimbabwe in the first game by three wickets. The team suffered a 25-run loss against Afghanistan. However, the third match did not go as close as the first one as Bangladesh beat Zimbabwe comprehensively by 39 runs.

Afghanistan have had the wood over Bangladesh in recent encounters and this game is also likely to go in their favour. Their experiment of bringing in 17-year-old wicketkeeper-batsman Rahmanullah Gurbaz has paid off for Afghanistan. They have promoted him to open the innings and have reaped the rewards. Rahmanullah has looked good at the international level and slammed another half-century in the last match against Zimbabwe.

He will be well supported by the likes of Hazratullah Zazai, Mohammad Nabi and Najibullah Zadran with the bat while Mujeeb Ur Rahman and Rashid Khan will lead Afghanistan's bowling attack.

Bangladesh will look towards Mushfiqur Rahim, Shakib Al Hasan and Mahmudullah to put runs on the board while Mustafizur Rahman and Shakib would be their leading bowlers.

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

Bangladesh- Najmul Hossain Shanto, Liton Das, Shakib Al Hasan, Mushfiqur Rahim, Mahmudullah, Mosaddek Hossain, Afif Hossain, Aminul Islam, Mohammad Saifuddin, Shafiul Islam, Mustafizur Rahman

Afghanistan- Rahmanullah Gurbaz, Hazratullah Zazai, Shafiqullah Shafiq, Asghar Afghan, Najibullah Zadran, Mohammad Nabi, Gulbadin Naib, Fazal Niazai, Rashid Khan, Mujeeb Ur Rahman, Dawlat Zadran
