Bangladesh will be dissatisfied with its performance in the previous ODI. In particular, Bengal Tiger’s batting order struggled to score big runs. Their top batting order was firm, but they worked with their middle and lower batting orders. Bangladesh, like in ODIs, has a good track record of winning T20 matches at home. They had also made a few changes to their squad for this t20 series, and they had given a chance to their young players who had performed well in the recent BPL T20 tournament.
Mahmudullah will lead Bangladesh in this two-match T20 series. Their top batters are Munim Shahriar, Yasir Ali, and Mohammad Naim. In their T20 team, Shakib Al Hasan, Afif Hossain, and Mahedi Hasan are batting all-rounders. Bangladesh has wicketkeeper batsmen Mushfiqur Rahim and Liton Das available. For this series, Bangladesh’s bowling unit is robust and experienced. Bangladesh’s bowling unit will be led by Taskin Ahmed, Mustafizur Rahman, Shoriful Islam, Nasum Ahmed, and Shohidul Islam.
Top players to bet on- Liton Das, Mahmudullah, Shaikib Al Hasan.
After losing two early ODI matches, Afghanistan bounced back strongly, and a convincing win in the last ODI may have improved the team’s confidence. When it comes to shorter formats of cricket, Afghanistan’s team is quite dangerous. Most of their players had already competed in major international tournaments such as the IPL, PSL, BBL, etc. In the conditions of Dhaka, we are confident that they would give Bangladesh a hard time. Afghanistan’s squad had also undergone significant changes for this series.
Rashid Khan and Mohammad Nabi had recently competed in the Pakistan Super League and performed admirably. They have played a lot of cricket in Dhaka and are very familiar with the pitch conditions. Bangladesh’s batters will have a difficult time scoring runs against both bowlers. Mohammad Nabi will lead the Afghan team in this series, and Afghanistan’s batting order is complex in this T20 series. The batting order will be led by Hazratullah Zazai, Najibullah Zadran, Darwish Rasooli, and Usman Ghani. Afghanistan’s wicketkeeper batters are Rahmanullah Gurbaz and Afsar Zazai, while the bowling department will be led by Fareed Ahmad Malik, Mujeeb Ur Rahman, Karim Janat, Qais Ahmed, and Rashid.
Top players to bet on – Rahmanullah Gurbaz, Qais Ahmed, Rashid Khan.
Shakib Al Hasan, Mushfiqur Rahim, Yasir Ali, Mahmudullah, Afif Hossain, Shoriful Islam, Taskin Ahmed, Mustafizur Rahman, Nasum Ahmed, Mahedi Hasan, Liton Das.
Fareed Ahmad, Mohammad Nabi, Najibullah Zadran, Mohammad Nabi, Karim Janat, Rashid Khan, Mujeeb Ur Rahman, Qais Ahmad, Fazalhaq Farooqi, Rahmanullah Gurbaz, Hazratullah Zazai.
