After a hiatus of nearly seven months, Bangladesh is returning to 50-over cricket with a two-match ODI series against Afghanistan. When it comes to white-ball cricket, Bangladesh has traditionally been difficult to play in their own backyard, but recently they have beaten Australia, West Indies, and New Zealand.
Afghanistan, on the other hand, is confident that they can pull off an upset in this series. In addition to the favourable weather conditions, the team appears to have found some promising young players recently.
We believe there are more than a few betting opportunities to be had in Bangladesh’s cricket match against India.

BAN vs AFG Team Previews
Shakib Al Hasan, Tamim Iqbal, and Taskin Ahmed all return from injury layoffs for Bangladesh in this match. There is no doubt in my mind that the Bangladesh Premier League players selected will be in peak physical condition.
Tamim Iqbal, Liton Das, Shakib Al Hasan, Mushfiqur Rahman, and Mahmudullah will all bat at the top of the order. Afghanistan’s spin trio pose a serious threat, but this is a strong and experienced team.
Liton Das and Shakib Al Hasan both have a chance to score runs in this match. For each run, you can find the Over/Under betting markets.
To attack the bowlers in the powerplay, Bangladesh has relied on Afif Hosain and Mahidy Hasan. Bangladesh has a formidable batting line-up in their own backyard.
Bangladesh’s bowling attack appears to have made the most progress in recent months. This match should feature Shoriful Islam, Mustafizur Rahman, Mehidy Hasan, Shakib Al Hasan, and possibly Taskin Ahmed. To be honest, if the conditions favour spinners, Bangladesh may opt to field Nasum Ahmed instead.
Wait to place a bet on Bangladesh’s Top Bowler until you have a better idea of the matchup. Mustafizur Rahman, on the other hand, is a viable option if you’re looking to back him to take 2 or more wickets.
Bangladesh Playing 11
Liton Das(wk), Tamim Iqbal(c), Shakib Al Hasan, Mushfiqur Rahim, Mahmudul Hasan Joy, Mahmudullah, Afif Hossain, Mehidy Hasan Miraz, Shoriful Islam, Taskin Ahmed, Mustafizur Rahman.
However, despite not having played many games together recently, the Afghan cricket team has been active on the international circuit. Five players from the subcontinent have played cricket for the Pakistan team: Rashid Khan, Mohammad Shahzad; Mujeeb ur Rahman; Rahmanullah Gurbaz; and Mohammad Nabi
There is a good chance that they will be well-prepared for this series.
We don’t know if Afghanistan’s talented players will be able to consistently defeat Bangladesh in a 50-over match, as they have done many times before.
We like Rahmanullah Gurbaz as a batsman, but the cricket betting sites seem to overvalue him. Instead, you can place your bets on Hashamtullah Shahidi and Rahmat Shah to score a few runs in the upcoming match. For the time being, their Over/Under numbers appear to be reasonable.
Rashid Khan and Mujeeb Ur Rahman appear to be the most dangerous bowlers in the competition. As a result, Aghanistan frequently turns to all-rounder Gulbadin Naib to fill in for the country’s dearth of quality pace bowlers.
Afghanistan Playing 11
Rahmanullah Gurbaz(wk), Riaz Hassan, Rahmat Shah, Hashmatullah Shahidi(c), Najibullah Zadran, Mohammad Nabi, Rashid Khan, Gulbadin Naib, Mujeeb ur Rahman, Yamin Ahmadzai, Fareed Ahmad.
BAN VS AFG TOSS PREDICTION
There is a tendency for the team that wins the coin toss to bat first. That’s a huge advantage to have, as the pitch will likely get noticeably slower by the second inning.
Check out our toss prediction guide for more information on how we come to our conclusions.
Pitch and Conditions
Chattogram’s weather will be crystal-clear from now on. Teams should be able to play a full match without interruption due to the absence of rain. During the Bangladesh Premier League, the pitch in Chattogram was slow and flat. We hope to see the same high average scores in this match as we did in the previous tournament.
Bangladesh would prefer to avoid rank turners because Afghanistan also has a powerful bowling attack.

BAN VS AFG BETTING TIPS
To bet on Bangladesh’s victory, we have decided. We believe they have made significant strides in their bowling over the last few months and will be a formidable opponent in their own backyard. Despite the threat posed by Afghanistan’s bowlers, the team lacks depth and may not be able to compete for the entire 50-over period.
Bangladesh has a good chance of winning.
