Bangladesh vs Afghanistan 3rd T20 Prediction – Asia Cup 2022
Bangladesh is likely an overwhelming hot favorite to win against Afghanistan. Bengal Tigers feature a mix of highly-experienced batters and bowlers. In comparison to that, the Afghan side will rely on a few senior mates like Zazai, Nabi, and Rashid Khan.
Afghanistan and Bangladesh are evenly ranked sides. Of the two sides, Bangladesh has toured many International teams in the current year, where they played T20Is, Test, and ODI series. The hectic T20 schedule has helped Bengal Tigers to evaluate their performance and dig out flaws before playing Asia Cup.
Bangladesh played their last T20 series against Zimbabwe, which they lost by 2-1. In total, Bangladesh has just won one T20 matches out of six they had played in recent months. However, they could be resurgent during the Asia Cup as they have some T20 stars who deliver well but are not consistent at all.
The strife-torn Afghan side has displayed a decent performance in the calendar year, as they won 7 T20I out of 10 matches, played against teams like Zimbabwe, Bangladesh and Ireland. It is pertinent to mention that they are coming off after losing the 5-match T20 series by 3-0 against the Irish side.
Team, Bangladesh has the likes of Shakib Al Hasan, Anamul Haque, Mushfiqur Rahim, Afif Hossain, Mosaddek Hossain, and Mahmudullah, while Afghanistan expects even performances from Rashid Khan, Majeeb, Zazai, and the captain Mohammad Nabi.
