Looking for Afghanistan vs Bangladesh where to watch information? Bangladesh and Afghanistan will be up against each other in Match No.3 of World Cup 2023 on Friday, October 6 at the Himachal Pradesh Cricket Association (HPCA) Stadium in Dharamsala.
The Tigers defeated Sri Lanka in their first warm-up match after their top three Tanizid Hasan Tamim, Mehidy Hasan Miraz and Litton Das batted beautifully. Their bowlers also made a comeback in that game after being taken apart in the first half of the Sri Lankan innings.
But against England, Bangladesh were found wanting, both in their batting and bowling departments. The English batters took the attack to the opposition bowling as the likes of Hasan Mahmud, Mustafizur Rahman and Shoriful Islam struggled to keep the batters in check.
Bangladesh are also without their star batter Tamim Iqbal, who was earlier left out of the World Cup squad in controversial circumstances. Mahmudullah will also be looking to put in some strong performances in the lower middle order after managing to find his place in the squad following the Asia Cup snub.
Shakib Al Hasan is playing his fifth and final World Cup, and Bangladesh will want to win the World Cup for their legendary cricketer. The squad also has young Tanzim Hasan Sakib, who made his international debut in the Asia Cup and was also a part of the Bangladesh U19 team that won the World Cup back in 2020.
Afghanistan, on the other hand, will be captained by Hashmatullah Shahidi, who has been one of their most consistent batters in the middle overs over the last few years. Ibrahim Zadran has made a brilliant start to his ODI career and his role as an opener will hold a lot of importance.
Rahmanullah Gurbaz will be brimming with confidence after his spectacular hundred in the warm-up match against Sri Lanka. The middle order also has the likes of Mohammad Nabi, Rahmat Shah and Najibullah Zadran.
In the bowling department, the Afghans will depend heavily on the spin duo of Rashid Khan and Mujeeb Ur Rahman. Rashid has bowled well in the past against Bangladesh, who have struggled with facing wrist spinners in the past.
Fast bowler Naveen-ul-Haq made a comeback to the ODI team, but also announced that he will retire from the 50-over format after the tournament on Indian soil.
