Bangladesh Vs Afghanistan – Preview – Team Bangladesh.

Bangladesh has performed decently in this world cup so far. They had 2 matches, one win came against the mighty South Africans and the second win came against the flamboyant West Indies.

But their bowling hasn’t been that impressive as their batting was in last two games. Bangladesh needs to contain the opposition for a defendable score.

Against Australia, it was pure carnage by Warner, Finch, Khawaja and Maxwell. Their bowlers had no answers to Australia onslaught.

Spinners weren’t too good, Shakib and Mehidy Hasan gave away too many runs. It was the part-time spin of Soumya Sarkar who got the breakthroughs for Bangladesh.

Sarkar as a part-time spin bowler did well for the team, he was the highest wicket-taker for Bangladesh in that match. He took 3 wickets where Bangladesh’s Shakib and Mehidy went wicketless.

This is a concern for them going ahead in the tournament.

Even fast bowlers were too expensive in the last two games. Mustifizur Rahman, Skipper Mortoza, and Rubel went for plenty.

It was a bad ploy to drop in-form Saifuddin and pick Rubel Hossain. Saifuddin bowled well and there was no need to change a winning XI.

Bangladeshi bowlers will face a spirited Afghans batting unit. Even though they haven’t won any games in this tournament till now, but they can’t be underestimated. The batting looks decent for Bangladesh. But it would be tough to face their spin trio of Mujeeb, Nabi and Rashid Khan.

Even pacers like Naib, Aslam and Afghan can be too good for Bangladesh.

Their batting unit needs to step up. If Bangladesh wants to make it to the top 4 then their batsmen should make runs. They should make it hard for the Afghans.

Bangladesh should win the toss and bowl first in tomorrow’s contest. Their paces should do the job against an inexperienced batting line up.

Bangladesh Vs Afghanistan – Team Afghanistan Preview –

Afghanistan came back strongly after England’s brutal assault done on their bowlers.

They successfully restricted a top ODI side like India for just 224 in their 50 overs and they nearly chased it down.

Their strength is their bowling, Rashid Khan made a very strong comeback against India yesterday.

After being smashed for 110 runs of just 54 balls, Rashid Khan bowled some tight overs and he also picked up a wicket to his name.

Skipper Gulbadin Naib will want the bowlers to continue this form against Bangladesh on Monday.

But the issue of batting remains the same for them. In the game against India, their batters got starts but they failed to convert them.

If someone would have been with Mohd Nabi in that chase then the story would be different.

Mohd Nabi batted well but he doesn’t have the art of finishing the games and will hurt Afghanistan in close matches like this.

Against Bangladesh, they will have to sort their batting issues. Bangladesh has good bowlers but currently, they are not in good form.

So, the Afghans can make good use of this opportunity. Their bowling is a possible threat, they can threaten Bangladesh with it.

The team of Bangladesh has good batsmen at the top order, and these batters play seam bowlers well.

So, Afghanistan should not mind starting the innings with their spinners, just like South Africa did against England in their 1st match of this world cup 2019.

The risk paid when Imrah Tahir got the wicket of Johnny Bairstow in the very 1st over.

Afghans have 3 good spinners and they would not be in harms way of trying this, if they do what they did to India then Afghanistan will be clear winners of this contest.

Probable 11 of Afghanistan –

Rahmat Shah/Aftab Alam, Noor Ali Zadran, Najibullah Zadran, Hashmatullah Shahidi, Asghar Afghan, Mohammad Nabi, Ikram Ali Khil, Gulbadin Naib, Rashid Khan, Mujeeb Ur Rahman, Dawlat Zadran.

Can Afghanistan win their first match of world cup 2019? Or will Bangladesh top against them?

Answers will be brought to us on 24th June 2019 at 3 PM IST. The live telecast will be shown on Star Sports Networks and Hotstar mobile app.
