Afghanistan vs Bangladesh Predictions


This is going to be a huge game for both sides but moreso for Afghanistan. They will either need to win to qualify for win by a specific margin.

Bangladesh are unlikely to be able to qualify, but that said, they have a team stacked with experience, while Afghanistan are not as used to big moments. I fancy Bangladesh to upset the odds in this game.

  • Afghanistan have won 3 of their last 5 matches.
  • Afghanistan won their last match against Australia.
  • Afghanistan’s Rahmanullah Gurbaz scored 60 runs in his last match.
  • Bangladesh have lost 3 of their last 5 matches.
  • Bangladesh have won their last 2 matches against Afghanistan.
  • Bangladesh’s Najmul Hossain Shanto top scored in his last match.

Head to Head


Bangladesh have won three of their last five T20I against Afghanistan, including the last two. They last met in July 2023 where The Tigers won both games.

Afghanistan Form


Afghanistan are third on the table on two points having lost to India but beat Australia. By the time they play this game, Afghanistan will know exactly what they need to do to get into the semi-final ahead of Australia.

Should the Aussies beat India, Afghanistan will have to win by a big margin, however, if India win, then Afghanistan still need to beat Bangladesh.

Against the Aussies, Afghanistan batted well, scoring 148 runs on a tough pitch. Rahmanullah Gurbaz scored 60 and Ibrahim Zadran 51 in a superb and calculated 118-run opening stand.

Naveen-ul-Haq took 3-20 in four overs while Gulbadin Naib was the pick of the bowlers with 4-20. They bowled the Aussies out for 127 runs to secure a crucial win.

Afghanistan Injuries & Team News


Regardless of the other result, this is a massive game Afghanistan and a must-win if they are to have any chance of progressing. They are likely to be unchanged.

Bangladesh Form


Bangladesh have had some good moments at the World Cup and did well to reach this Super 8 stage. They are all but knocked out at this point.

In order to progress, Bangladesh must hope Australia lose heavily to India and then beat Afghanistan by a huge margin to sufficiently improve their net run rate.

Bangladesh lost their last match to India by 50 runs. Chasing 197 for victory, they could only manage 146 runs. Najmul Hossain Shanto top scored with 40 runs.

Bangladesh Injuries & Team News


Bangladesh may look to make some changes depending on the other result. If they can no longer qualify they could give squad players a run.

Verdict

I am backing Bangladesh to win this game.
