Bangladesh vs Afghanistan: Match Preview
Just the Right People Due to their lower position in the ODI rankings, Bangladesh and Afghanistan will need a series of wins over the Netherlands in order to advance to the semi-finals.
However, both squads are loaded with quality and can challenge the greatest in the world, especially in locations that cater to their abilities, as will be the case at several points during the tournament.
Winning in Dharamsala would improve both teams’ prospects of advancing to the semifinals, although the weather may not be ideal for either squad. Bangladesh’s Shakib Al Hasan is still one of the finest bowlers in the world, while Afghanistan has three spinners in the top ten of the MRF Tyres ICC ODI Bowling Rankings.
As a result of short boundaries and high altitude, quick bowlers have had more of a wicket-taking influence at the ground, while spin has been known to go the distance at Dharamsala.
Shakib Al Hasan must make a crucial decision about his choice of pacers. Bangladesh fielded two young players, Shoriful Islam and Hasan Mahmud, with Taskin Ahmed, but Mustafizur Rahman, his most experienced bowler, sat on the bench for virtually the whole Asia Cup. Mustafizur brings an understanding of the conditions on offer in India and played a key role in a meaningless win over India. He took three wickets.
Shakib also has a conundrum at the tail end of the lineup. Mehidy Hasan Miraz, a floater, gave Bangladesh some early batting energy to build up the triumph against Afghanistan in the Asia Cup, despite the fact that Tanzid Tamim batted well in the warm-up games and should slot in with Litton Das.
After a two-year hiatus from One-Day Internationals, Naveen-ul-Haq has returned for what will likely be his final appearance. He’ll be paired with Fazalhaq Farooqi to bowl to the new ball, while all-rounder Azmatullah Omarzai will be available to do the same. Afghanistan is set to choose the trio of Rashid Khan, Mohammad Nabi, and Mujeeb-Ur-Rahman for their spin department.
Bangladesh Squad: Shakib Al Hasan (c), Litton Kumer Das, Tanzid Hasan Tamim, Najmul Hossain Shanto (vc), Tawhid Hridoy, Mushfiqur Rahim, Mahmudullah Riyad, Mehidy Hasan Miraz, Nasum Ahmed, Shak Mahedi Hasan, Taskin Ahmed, Mustafizur Rahman, Hasan Mahmud, Shoriful Islam, Tanzim Hasan Sakib.
Afghanistan Squad: Hashmatullah Shahidi (c), Rahmanullah Gurbaz, Ibrahim Zadran, Riaz Hassan, Rahmat Shah, Najibullah Zadran, Mohammad Nabi, Ikram Alikhil, Azmatullah Omarzai, Rashid Khan, Mujeeb ur Rahman, Noor Ahmad, Fazalhaq Farooqi, Abdul Rahman, Naveen ul Haq.
