Afghanistan has the chance to end the innings once more, as they did against Sri Lanka, and given their supremacy in head-to-head matches versus Bangladesh, they may feel confident about completing another tournament victory tonight.

In the third game of the 2022 Asia Cup, Bangladesh and Afghanistan will meet.  Bangladesh’s performance as a team in the game’s shortest format has improved recently. They would, however, be wounded after losing a recent T20I series to  Zimbabwe. The addition of captain Shakib Al Hasan will undoubtedly improve the players’ spirits. The team will be hoping that they play some solid cricket in the multi-nation competition since Shakib is the most crucial player. Additionally, their team management will need to develop a strategy for taking on Rashid Khan of Afghanistan.

Team Afghanistan’s season-opening performance, in which they took on the Sri Lankan batsmen and bowled them out in 105 runs, was entertaining to witness. Team Afghanistan may maintain their winning streak against Bangladesh as well, and given that the group appears to be competitive, Afghanistan may raise their confidence level tonight.
