Afghanistan seems to have taken over the role of Bangladesh of the unpredictable team. They might not have got a lot of experience which they are covering up with hard work and sheer will to win. They are hosting the T20s in India as India has been a complete supporter of Afghanistan in world cricket. They have already stormed their way into 2019 world cup. The way they have been playing should be a concern for any team. They have the ability to upset any game now. If they win the next game that will be their fourth bilateral series win against a test playing nation. This will be a feat for a small team like Afghanistan, and the ease with which they are playing, It should be a cakewalk.
Venue: Rajiv Gandhi International Cricket Stadium, Dehradun
The second home ground for Afghanistan cricket in India is hosting the three-match T20s series. The pitch was helping the spinners in the last game here and, looks like nothing will be changing for this game as well. Find Afganistan vs Bangladesh 2nd T20 Fantasy Cricket Preview below.
Afganistan vs Bangladesh 2nd T20 Fantasy Cricket Preview/Playing 11
The hosts are looking to secure a thumping series win against Bangladesh. They outclassed Bangladesh in every aspect of the game. It didn’t look like a rookie team. They have their fair share of gems in the team and they have capitalized nicely on them. They would not be thinking about making any changes. Shafiqullah was great with the bat in last game. Rashid Khan is in a class of his own. Usman Ghani, Shapoor Zardan, Mohammad Nabi and Asghar Stanikzai bring stability to this side. Overall, it is a team which is not to be taken lightly.
This team was clearly taking Afghanistan for granted and they paid a heavy price. They were bad with bat and ball. Apart from Shakib, the balling seemed completely out of sync. The strike bowlers were out of touch, which created pressure on batsmen resulting in a disappointing loss. They will have to bring their head in the game, as this will be a do or die match for them. They might bring Soumya Sarkar back in this panic situation for the team. The spin-friendly gound can also pave way for Mehidy Hasan for this game.
