On Tuesday, August 30, Match 3 of the Asia Cup 2022 will take place in Sharjah will feature Afghanistan vs. Bangladesh.
In the first game, Afghanistan easily defeated Sri Lanka, winning by eight wickets. Mohammad Nabi’s team played expertly throughout, earning two points with a respectable net run rate of 5.176.
In contrast, Bangladesh enters the competition after losing to Zimbabwe 2-1 in a series. Only two of Bangladesh’s eight T20I matches this year have ended in victories, and Nabi’s team defeated Bangladesh by an eight-wicket margin in their most recent meeting.
The Afghanistan team is confident, therefore it appears that the Bangla Tigers have a difficult challenge ahead of them.
Team Performances And Prediction
In the third game of the ongoing Asia Cup 2022, Afghanistan and Bangladesh are scheduled to square off. The Bangladeshi team will play their second game while the Mohammad Nabi-led team will play their first.
In T20Is in 2022, the Shakib Al Hasan-led team had a terrible record. They have suffered series losses to the West Indies, Pakistan, and Zimbabwe. The Asian team wants to compete during the regional Cup.
The team led by Shakib al Hasan has struggled to maintain consistency as their star players have fallen short. Shakib, Mushfiqur Rahim, and Mahamadullah are not firing simultaneously.
Due to the hitters’ ongoing struggles, bowlers have repeatedly sought to assume the majority of the burden. Bangladesh wants its older players to take the initiative against Afghanistan.
In their most recent T20I series against Zimbabwe, Bangladesh scored an average of 52.66 points on the power play. In the meanwhile, Afghanistan demonstrated their potential by scoring 83 runs in the first six overs of their Asia Cup match against Sri Lanka.
Thus, it is expected that both teams will score 45 to 60 runs while on the power play. The average first innings score in Sharjah’s last three T20Is has been 180.33. In the UAE, a new season has just begun.
Probable Best Players
Hazratullah Zazai, the left-handed starter, is typically an explosive batter who can get the powerplay off to a rapid start. The 24-year-old has scored 904 runs in 29 T20 Internationals, averaging 34.76 and 143.94, with a best score of 162*. He contributed in the opening game as well, striking an undefeated 37 off 28 balls.
Rashid Khan Was Likely The Game’s Greatest Bowler
Rashid Khan, one of the top bowlers in white-ball cricket and a seasoned competitor in the T20 league, is constantly counted on to perform with the ball anytime he is on the field. He is the highest-ranked bowler in the competition and currently holds the fifth spot in the ICC T20I Bowling Rankings.
Report For Pitch And Toss
The pitch is a ground ball with a modest scoring potential that, in the second innings, may benefit spinners. Those who win the coin toss get to go first.
