BAN vs AFG Preview:
- Najmul Hossain Shanto has been displaying exceptional form in 2023, making him our top choice for Bangladesh’s highest run-scorer against Afghanistan. Shakib Al Hasan, who claimed 2-29 against Sri Lanka, is a strong contender for the title of Bangladesh’s leading wicket-taker in this game.
- Ibrahim Zadran boasts an impressive average of 55.26 from 17 ODI innings, and at the age of 21, he is our favored candidate for Afghanistan’s highest run-scorer on Sunday in Lahore. Rashid Khan, with a remarkable 170 wickets in this format, is expected to shine as Afghanistan’s top wicket-taker in this match.
- Shakib Al Hasan’s reputation as a top left-arm spinner leads us to anticipate that he will secure over 1.5 wickets in this match.

As both teams are in a must-win situation, anticipation is building for an enthralling ODI clash in Lahore this Sunday. Bangladesh had a lackluster performance against Sri Lanka, but we anticipate a significantly improved display in this upcoming game.

BAN vs AFG Key Players:
Najmul Hossain Shanto
The 25-year-old batsman impressively amassed 89 runs against Sri Lanka, marking his fifth score of 50 or more in this format in 2023.
The pace bowler secured a crucial wicket in the form of Dimuth Karunaratne in the previous match and is poised to thrive on the pace-friendly conditions in Lahore.
Shakib Al Hasan
The all-rounder showcases precise spin with commendable pace and recently contributed to his ODI wickets tally by dismissing Kusal Mendis and Dhananjaya de Silva in the last game..
The young top-order batsman encountered a challenging spell in his last ODI, registering an 11-ball duck. Nevertheless, his track record in this format over the past few years showcases remarkable consistency.
