Defending a below-par total of 215 runs, Afghanistan managed to pick the first six wickets of Bangladesh for just 45 runs in the second innings. Despite that, they went on to lose the game by 4 wickets, courtesy of a sensational 174-run partnership for the seventh wicket between Afif Hussain and Mehidy Hasan.
Afghanistan would look to forget the memories of that defeat and focus on the next game on Friday. Here’s a look at our predicted playing XI of the Afghanistan Cricket Team for the second One-Day International.
BAN vs AFG: Bangladesh’s Predicted Playing XI Against Afghanistan– Bangladesh vs Afghanistan, 2nd ODI
Openers: Rahmanullah Gurbaz and Ibrahim Zadran
There is no denying that Rahmanullah Gurbaz is a rising star in Afghanistan’s team. He has played just 7 ODIs and managed to score 315 runs at 45.00. Gurbaz had a forgettable day in the last game but you expect him to make a strong comeback. His partner, Ibrahim Zadran (19 off 23) got a pretty good start but, unfortunately, got out a crucial stage in the game.
