BAN vs AFG Betting Tips

  • After missing a large part of the 2023 Asia Cup through injury, Bangladesh will be delighted to have the in-form Najmul Hossain Shanto back in their side for this tournament. The 25 year old left-hander has had an excellent 2023 so far and he is our pick for their highest run scorer against Afghanistan. Taskin Ahmed has really kicked on under the coaching of Allan Donald and the right-arm fast bowler will cause batters problems throughout this tournament. Taskin is our tip for Bangladesh’s top wicket taker on Saturday.
  • Ibrahim Zadran struck 10 fours and one six in his last ODI innings against Bangladesh. The opener averages 53.58 in this format and is only 89 runs from bringing up 1000 ODI runs in his 20th innings. He is a strong choice for Afghanistan’s highest run scorer in this match. Rashid Khan does not have the same reputation in ODIs as he does in T20Is but he is still a very fine bowler in this white ball format. He took wickets in both of his last games, will quickly find the right length on this pitch and we expect him to be Afghanistan’s top wicket taker against Bangladesh.
  • With a top score of 117 in ODI cricket, we recommend backing Najmul Hossain Shanto to hit over 31.5 runs in this fixture.

BAN vs AFG ODI Match Prediction & Betting Tips, Cricket World Cup 2023

Bangladesh and Afghanistan are the sides in action in Match 3 of the 2023 Cricket World Cup on Saturday morning at the Himachal Pradesh Cricket Association Stadium, Dharamsala. Four years ago, at the 2019 Cricket World Cup, Bangladesh finished the group stage in eighth place, four points from the top four spots. Afghanistan come into this tournament looking to improve on their record of played nine lost nine from 2019. Read on as we preview this game. The match gets underway at 10:30 local time.

Bangladesh beat South Africa, West Indies and Afghanistan during the 2019 Cricket World Cup but come into this tournament with genuine hopes of improving on that performance. They have more experience and more talent than Afghanistan’s squad.

The success of Afghanistan in this tournament will rest quite heavily on the shoulders of Rashid Khan and their other spinners. With the bat they also have some consistent performers but this will be a tough opening game of the tournament against Bangladesh.

BAN vs AFG Match Toss Prediction

Three of the four ODIs played at this venue have been won by the team chasing a target in the second innings. We predict that both captains will want to field first in this game.

BAN vs AFG Pitch Report

The pitch at the Himachal Pradesh Cricket Stadium has not hosted an ODI since 2017 but we can expect a pitch with good pace. A par score will be over 320 on this surface on Saturday.

Dharamsala Weather Report

There are no worries of rain interrupting this match and the temperature should not be too hot with a peak of 25 degrees on Saturday. Humidity will increase as the game progresses and be quite high by the end.

Bangladesh Team News & Playing 11

Bangladesh Team News

The big surprise for fans of Bangladesh ahead of this tournament was Tamim Iqbal being left out of the squad after he had seemingly proved his fitness. Shakib Al Hasan has a squad without any injuries to select from ahead of this their opening game.

Bangladesh Team Key Players

  • Najmul Hossain Shanto - The 25 year old has been given the added responsibility of being vice-captain in the tournament. He has increased his scores and strike-rates in this format throughout this year.
  • Shakib Al Hasan - The skipper is vastly experienced in international cricket but still retains the ability to win a game single-handedly with both bat and ball. He should get some turn and bounce from this surface.

Bangladesh Key Batsmen Stats

Player Mat (ODI) Inns Runs HS Ave SR 100s 50s
Najmul Hossain Shanto 30 29 908 117 31.31 79.09 2 5
Shakib Al Hasan 240 227 7384 134* 37.67 82.85 9 55
  • Taskin Ahmed - The 28 year old pace bowler is 10 wickets away from bringing up 100 in this format. He certainly has the ability to reach the milestone in this tournament and he will be hard to face on this pitch.
  • Shoriful Islam - The left-arm medium fast bowler will be a new name for many at this Cricket World Cup. However, he has impressed at international level and has a strike rate of 27.2 in ODIs.

Bangladesh Key Bowlers Stats

Player Mat (ODI) Inns Overs Wkts BBM Ave Econ SR 5w
Taskin Ahmed 63 61 486.2 90 5/28 29.24 5.41 32.4 2
Shoriful Islam 22 22 158.4 35 4/21 24.34 5.36



Bangladesh Team Form

Bangladesh have improved a great deal in ODI cricket over the last couple of years but have won only one of their last five matches in this format.

Bangladesh Predicted Playing 11

Tanzid Hasan, Litton Das, Najmul Hossain Shanto, Mehidy Hasan Miraz, Shakib Al Hasan (c), Mahmadullah, Mushfiqur Rahim (wk), Mahedi Hasan, Taskin Ahmed, Shoriful Islam, Nasum Ahmed

Afghanistan Team News & Playing 11

Afghanistan Team News

Ahead of this game, no injuries have been reported in the Afghanistan squad. In spite of scoring two half-centuries in their last match against Bangladesh, Afghanistan were still well beaten and Hashmatullah Shahidi knows his side need to raise their performance levels across this tournament.

Afghanistan Team Key Players

  • Ibrahim Zadran - The 21 year old comes into the tournament with a strong ODI reputation and his teammates will be looking to him to deliver against the big sides. He hit 75 against Bangladesh in the 2023 Asia Cup.
  • Rahmanullah Gurbaz - The keeper-batter has played plenty of internationals over the last couple of years and he has racked up five centuries from only 26 innings in this format.

Afghanistan Key Batsmen Stats

Player Mat (ODI) Inns Runs HS Ave SR 100s 50s
Ibrahim Zadran 19 19 911 162 53.58 84.35 4 4
Rahmanullah Gurbaz 26 26 958 151 38.32 85.23 5 2
  • Rashid Khan - The right-arm spinner has plenty of variations and is also a very useful big hitting batter down the order. He will give the ball plenty of flight and will be a threat to the best batters in Bangladesh’s side.
  • Naveen-ul-Haq - The 24 year old right-arm medium fast bowler has a very strong white ball record and has taken 14 wickets from only seven ODIs in his career.

Afghanistan Key Bowlers Stats

Player Mat (ODI) Inns Overs Wkts BBM Ave Econ SR 5w
Rashid Khan 94 89 796.5 172 7/18 19.53 4.21 27.7 4

Who will win Bangladesh vs Afghanistan ODI Match?

Most pundits believe that Afghanistan will be more competitive in this Cricket World Cup 2023 than four years ago but we still think that Bangladesh will be the stronger team in this game on Saturday.

BAN vs AFG Top Team Batsmen

Shakib Al Hasan, Litton Das, Najmul Hossain Shanto and Mushfiqur Rahim are our batting tips for Bangladesh. Opener Das missed the opening games of the 2023 Asia Cup through illness but is a big part of the top order and has a top score of 176 in this format. Keeper-batter Rahim has batted in 239 ODIs and comes into this game with nine centuries from those innings.

With the bat, we recommend Rahmanullah Gurbaz, Ibrahim Zadran, Hashmatullah Shahidi and Mohammad Nabi for Afghanistan. Skipper Shahidi hit six fours in his half-century against Bangladesh the last time they met and he has a top score of 97 not out in this format. All-rounder Nabi has scored over 3100 ODI runs and is a vastly experienced player. He comes into this game with a top ODI score of 116.

BAN vs AFG Top Team Bowlers

Our bowling picks are Taskin Ahmed, Mahedi Hasan, Shoriful Islam and Shakib Al Hasan for Bangladesh. Skipper Shakib is very hard to score runs off in any format and he has picked up 308 wickets across his ODI career. Off-spinner Mahedi took 3-45 in one match in the recent series against New Zealand as well as picking up 3-36 in a warm-up game against Sri Lanka.

Rashid Khan, Fazalahaq Farooqi, Mujeeb ur Rahman and Naveen-ul-Haq are our bowling choices for Afghanistan. Tall and young right-arm off-spinner Mujeeb Ur Rahman has a strong ODI record with three 4-wicket hauls and one 5-wicket hauls at the age of 22. Farooqi bowls left-arm pace and can trouble right-handed top order players with his accuracy and movement.

🏆 Bangladesh vs Afghanistan Prediction

Both of these two teams come into this game and tournament with genuine aspirations of improving on their lowly finishes in the 2019 Cricket World Cup. They are both comfortable in Indian conditions and a win in this game would act as a springboard for further success. We are predicting a close match but we think that their greater experience and batting depth with quality strike bowlers in the Bangladesh team will be crucial. We are backing Bangladesh to win this match.
