Dharamshala – Although the Bangladesh team is superior in experience, Afghanistan has beaten them in the last few matches. So it is difficult to predict the match between these two teams in ODI World Cup cricket tournament.
Afghanistan won the series in Bangladesh 2-1, but in last month’s Asia Cup match, Bangladesh had a one-sided defeat against Afghanistan. So both teams are balanced.
Bangladesh lost the home series against New Zealand. After that, they managed only two wins in the Asia Cup, one of which was against Afghanistan. After that some events happened in the Bangladesh team off the field as well, the Bangladesh team left for India for this World Cup.
Tauhid Hirdoy, Shauriful Islam, Tanzid Hasan and Tanzim Hasan are among the players in the team that won the Under-19 World Cup three years ago. However, Bangladesh will rely on the experienced Shakib and Mushfiqur Rahim.
On the other hand, although the Afghanistan team has already qualified for the World Cup, their performance in the last four years has not been consistent. So they have now given the opportunity to the experienced players to make a comeback. Their main focus will be on the spinners Rashid Khan, Mujeeb ul Rehman and Mohammad Nabi. They could not win a single match in the 2019 World Cup.
