The third match of the Bangladesh T20 tri-series will be between Bangladesh and Afghanistan at the Shere Bangla National Stadium, Dhaka on September 15 at 12.30 PM GMT.
Though he did not have one of his best matches against Zimbabwe, Shakib Al Hasan is undeniably one of best all-rounders in the game, and for fantsy cricket games, he should be one of the first picks. The abilities of the experienced Mushfiqur Rahim can also be counted upon. As for the bowling, Mohammad Saifuddin has been bowling well off late, and Mustafizur Rahman can come good.
Rahmanullah Gurbaz was given an opportunity in the previous match which he grabbed it with both hands with a 24-ball 43. Mohammad Nabi brings a ton of experience to the Afghanistan side. Captain Rashid Khan, with his dot-ball percentage and wicket-taking abilities, is hard to ignore in fantasy cricket teams. Mujeeb-ur-Rahman is also a useful option in the bowling department.
Injury and Availability News:
There are no injury concerns for either of the teams.
