Afghanistan vs Bangladesh Match Prediction Tips | AFGH vs BAN Who will win Today Match
2nd T20, Afghanistan v Bangladesh in India
After succumbing to a 45-run humbling at the hands of Afghanistan, the Bangladesh tigers would be looking for a turnaround in the second T20 on Tuesday.
Afghanistan, after being put in, in the first T20 was reeling at 4-115 at the end of the 17th over, but late fireworks courtsey Shenwari 36 (18) and Shafiq 24 (8) propelled them to a competitive and eventually match-winning 8-167 after 20 overs. Bangladesh’s death bowling missed Mustafizur Rahman, who is out of action due to injury, as Abu Zayed (1-34) and Abul Hasan (2-40) leaked 74 runs in six overs.
Bangladesh, at 2-64 after eight overs, looked prime to chase down the target with ease, but the trio of Mujib (1-20), Nabi (1-27), and Rashid Khan (3-13 off three overs), who took 6-54 from 11 overs, choked the life out of Bangladesh’s chase as they were eventually bundled out for 122 in 19 overs.
Moving onto the second T20, while Bangladesh would be hoping for their batsmen in Tamim Iqbal, Shakib, Rahim, and Mahmudullah to come good against the trio of Afghan spinners, skipper Stanikzai would be hoping their middle-order to contribute more with the bat in a bid to consistently win against the top sides.
