Bangladesh-Afghanistan face each other in the first T20 on Friday

Bangladesh team has already lost the series despite winning the last match of the ODI series. But the Tigers are desperate to win the T20 series. For that purpose, Bangladesh is entering the field against Afghanistan tomorrow (Friday). The match will start at 6 pm Bangladesh time. The match will be telecast live on T-Sports and Gazi TV.

Bangladesh have won five out of six matches since the T20 World Cup last year. In this, the Tigers also have the precedent of whitewashing England in a three-match series. Tigers are improving in the short version proving the performance of Bangladesh, which is considered to be the weakest in this format.

This time, Bangladesh is playing against a team against whom they have not had much success. Bangladesh have won 3 out of 9 and lost 6 against Afghanistan in this format.

Afghanistan won the last two matches against Bangladesh by 8 and 7 wickets respectively. Such a result shows the supremacy of the Afghans. But Bangladesh won two of the last five matches. The Tigers have picked up two of their three wins against the Afghans in recent times.

Bangladesh captain Shakib Al Hasan is confident of changing the statistics in this series. He said the most important thing to build a strong team for the T20 World Cup 2024 is to maintain continuity.

Bangladesh team:

Shakib Al Hasan (captain), Liton Kumar Das, Rony Talukder, Nazmul Hossain Shanto, Tawhid Hriday, Shamim Hossain, Mehdi Hasan Miraj, Nasum Ahmed, Mostafizur Rahman, Hasan Mahmud, Taskin Ahmed, Ebadat Hossain Chowdhury, Shariful Islam, Risaad Hossain and Afif Hossain Dhruv.
