CRICKBELL MATCH TIPS
Bangladesh versus Afghanistan prediction
Both teams are coming behind winning against Sri Lanka and both have already qualify for the Super Four stage of the tournament. But neither will they take this match lightly because they want to accelerate with them in the next round. Bangladesh has the advantage of a little 3-2 on Afghanistan when it comes to head-to-head records and the fact is that they had thrown them in their last meeting, they should give very much confidence. However, the loss of Tamim Iqbal can not be ignored and the lack of reliable replacement means that his batting will definitely weaken in comparison to the first. Apart from this, Shakib and Mushfikur are not 100% fit, which is another major cause of concern for Bangladesh. There is no such worry in Afghanistan and they are currently looking at the top form, this is the reason that we estimate them to win this match and end up on the Group B table.
