Bangladesh have had a disturbing preparation to the tournament, with off-field events dominating the lead-up to the World Cup. Yet, they are in some good form against Afghanistan and should fancy their chances here. I am backing Bangladesh to win this match. Keep an eye on the individual markets with Najmul Hossain Shanto likely to lead the pack for Bangladesh.

  • Bangladesh have won 6 of their last 9 matches against Afghanistan (ODIs)
  • Afghanistan have lost 2 World Cup matches against Bangladesh (ODIs)
  • Afghanistan have lost their last 6 matches (ODIs)
  • Ibrahim Zadran has 8 scores of 50 or more in his last 16 matches for Afghanistan (ODIs)
  • Najmul Hossain Shanto has 7 scores of 50 or more in his last 14 innings for Bangladesh (ODIs)
  • Taskin Ahmed has taken at least 2 wickets in 5 of his last 7 matches against Afghanistan (ODIs)

Head to Head


Bangladesh have played Afghanistan in 15 ODIs so far with nine wins and six losses. They have won their last two matches as well as six of the last nine against the Afghans.

In the World Cups, there have been two matches between these sides with Bangladesh winning both.

Bangladesh Form


Bangladesh are coming off a 2-0 series defeat against New Zealand at home, where the first match was washed away. They had a disappointing Asia Cup prior to that, where their only moment under the sun came in a win against India.

The Tigers crashed out of the group stages in the last World Cup when they finished with three wins and five defeats. One of those wins came against Afghanistan, though.

In the warm-ups, Bangladesh played at Guwahati against Sri Lanka and England. They defeated the Lankans by seven wickets but came up short against England by four wickets.

Bangladesh Team News


Bangladesh are likely to leave out Towhid Hridoy, Mahedi Hasan, Tanzim Hasan and Tanzid Hasan.

Afghanistan Form


Afghanistan were last seen in the Asia Cup where they failed to qualify for the Super Fours. They lost to both Bangladesh and Sri Lanka, which was preceded by a three-game loss to Pakistan.

In the last World Cup, Afghanistan ended the tournament in the group stage, losing each of their nine matches. Even in the 2015 edition, they lost five of the six matches played.

Prior to this tournament, Afghanistan were scheduled to play two warm-ups. The game against South Africa was abandoned due to rain without a ball bowled. Against Sri Lanka in the second game, they won by six wickets via DLS method.

Afghanistan Team News


Afghanistan could be benching Riaz Hassan, Azmatullah Omarzai, Ikram Alikhil, and Abdul Rahman.

Verdict

Bangladesh and Afghanistan would have wanted a better preparation to the marquee event. Both teams have struggled in recent times, but Bangladesh have a slight edge, thanks to their World Cup record. It is the Tigers who are likely to win this game too and I am putting my money on a Bangladesh win. Keep an eye on Najmul Shanto who should continue his run-scoring ways.
