Bangladesh v Afghanistan – Tuesday, September 24


The final of the Bangladesh Tri-Nation Series will be played between Bangladesh and Afghanistan at Sher-e Bangla National Cricket Stadium. Zimbabwe was the other nation involved in the tri-series.

Bangladesh and Afghanistan split their encounters one-all with Afghanistan winning by 25 runs in the third T20I. Mohammed Nabi was the star of the match scoring an unbeaten 84 off 54 balls. Mujeeb Ur Rahman was exceptional with the ball, taking 4/15 off four overs. 

In the sixth T20I, Bangladesh won by four wickets. Shakib Al Hasan scored an unbeaten 70 from 45 balls to guide Bangladesh to a four-wicket victory.

Very little separates the two sides heading into the final and Afghanistan appeal at $2.20.

Young off-spinner Mujeeb Ur Rahman is only 18 years old but has shown enormous promise so far in his career. 13 T20Is have returned 18 wickets at an average of 15.44 and his 37 ODIs have produced 58 wickets at 22.07. He will be the key to success here, along with captain Rashid Khan if he plays. Khan is in doubt for the final and if he misses, it will be a big blow for Afghanistan’s chances.

No single batsman has dominated for Afghanistan this tournament. Mohammad Nabi has contributed with 84* and 38, while wicketkeeper Rahmanullah Gurbaz has been consistent with scores of 43, 61 and 29. They will need two or three of the top six to score 30-plus, with one of those going on to hit a half-century or better in order to repel Bangladesh. 

All-rounder Afif Hossain has had a good tournament and will be one of the keys to success for Bangladesh.

We are picking Afghanistan to win the final as underdogs.
