BAN vs AFG Betting Tips

  • Opener Liton Das top scored for Bangladesh in the last two ODIs and is our tip for their highest run scorer against Afghanistan in the opening IT20. With the ball, we are backing all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan to add to his 117 IT20 wickets. The left-arm spinner is well worth backing as Bangladesh’s top wicket taker in this clash.
  • Keeper-batter Rahmanullah Gurbaz hit 106 not-out from 110 balls on Sunday. He is our pick for Afghanistan’s highest run scorer in this game. Rashid Khan has 284 international wickets and is a fine IT20 player. The leg-spinner is a strong choice for Afghanistan’s top wicket taker against Bangladesh.
  • We are backing Shakib Al Hasan to contribute with both bat and ball in this fixture. He is our prediction for the Player of the Match Award.

BAN vs AFG 1st T20 Match Prediction & Betting Tips

Bangladesh and Afghanistan go head to head in the first of two IT20s in Dhaka on Wednesday. The teams concluded a three-match ODI series on Sunday with Afghanistan winning the final game although Bangladesh won the series 2-1. Read on as we preview this match. The day-night fixture begins at the Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium at 15:00 local time.

Bangladesh have lost their last eight IT20s and were very poor during the 2021 T20 World Cup. However, they will fancy themselves against Afghanistan in home conditions.

Afghanistan picked up plenty of new supporters with their attacking displays during last year’s World Cup. This will be a tough game but they will not be overawed by the contest.

Bangladesh Team News & Playing 11

BAN Team News

ODI captain, Tamim Iqbal, announced in January that he would take a break from IT20s for the next six months. His absence will give opportunities for other players to stake a claim in this series. Mahmudullah will captain the side who have lost their way in this format over recent months.

BAN Key Players

  • Liton Das - The top order batter finished the ODI series as the leading run scorer on both sides. He hit 223 runs in total and will come into this series full of confidence.
  • Shakib Al Hasan - The all-rounder is one of the best IT20 players in the world and has over 1000 runs to back up his 117 wickets.
  • Mustafizur Rahman - The left-arm quick bowler will be pleased to return to the T20 format after he dominated batters during the 2022 BPL.

BAN Team Form

Bangladesh have lost eight successive IT20s.

Bangladesh Predicted Playing 11

Afghanistan Team News & Playing 11

AFG Team News

Although they ended their T20 World Cup campaign with successive heavy defeats, Afghanistan were very watchable and impressed many observers with their progression as a side. There are no injuries or illness in the squad and we expect Afghanistan to put out a strong XI in this opening match.

AFG Key Players

  • Rahmanullah Gurbaz - the 20 year old right handed batter now has an average of over 50 in ODIs. He will be looking to boost his IT20 average of 29.50 in this match.
  • Rashid Khan - the leg-spinner ended the ODI series with figures of 3-37 from his 10 overs in the final match. He will be even more dangerous in this format with the batters needing to keep the run-rate up.
  • Fazalhaq Farooqi - the 21 year-old left-arm fast medium bowler picked up 6 wickets during the ODIs. So far he has played only 1 IT20 but looks like an integral part of the team.

AFG Team Form

Afghanistan have lost their last 2 IT20s.

Afghanistan Predicted Playing 11

Rahmanullah Gurbaz (wk), Hazratullah Zazai, Fareed Ahmad, Mohammad Nabi (c), Najibullah Zadran, Mohammad Nabi, Karim Janat, Rashid Khan, Mujeeb Ur Rahman, Qais Ahmad, Fazalhaq Farooqi
