Team Preview


Placed sixth on the table with two victories in six matches, Mashrafe Mortaza and company will have to win all their matches now to get into semi-finals. Even as their batting has been exceptional, it’s their bowlers, who have let the team down in a few games. So, now the bowlers have to take responsibility on their shoulders. 


Mosaddek Hossain, who missed the last match due to an injury is now available. So the team is expected to bring him back in place of Sabbir Rahman who got a golden duck versus the Aussies. There’s no update on Mohammad Saifuddin’s back spasm till now. So, his inclusion in the team is still not sure.  

Probable Playing XI: Mashrafe Mortaza (C), Mushfiqur Rahim (wk), Tamim Iqbal, Soumya Sarkar, Shakib Al Hasan, Liton Das, Mahmudullah, Mosaddek Hossain, Mehidy Hasan Miraz, Rubel Hossain, Mustafizur Rahman


Having lost all their six matches of the 2019 World Cup, Afghanistan is already out of semi-finals race. In their last three games left, Gulbadin Naib and his troops have nothing to lose for, so, they will now enjoy and play for their respect. 

However, thier last game against India at the Rose Bowl in Southampton, the Afghans have showcased brilliant performance. Although, the team lost the match by 11 runs but gathered a lot of praises from the Cricket Fraternity.

Afghanistan is at last spot in the points table with no victories till now. 


After their promising performance against India, Afghanistan team is expected to do no alterations in their playing XI. They might play with the same playing XI that played in the last match.
