Visitors Afghanistan are all set to lock horns against Bangladesh in the off Test slated to begin tomorrow. The match will be played at the Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium in Chittagong. The visitors will be hoping to put up a good performance especially after registering their maiden Test victory against Ireland. On the other hand, the hosts will look to continue their good work in home conditions.
Bangladesh has some great players in their ranks and will start as definite favourites for the only Test. Meanwhile, Rashid Khan who has been appointed as then-new skipper of Afghanistan will look to start of his new assignment pretty well. There are quite a few new faces in the Afghanistan squad who will look to make a mark in the only Test.
Date and Venue:
The match will be played at the Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium in Chittagong. The match will be played on 5th September from 9:30 AM IST.
Here are the Dream11 Prediction and Fantasy Cricket Tips:
It is pretty important to pick players who are part of the Playing XI. Hence I would suggest picking the Dream XI team only after the line-ups are announced. Meanwhile, it is also important to pick the top order batters as they would be scoring the chunk of the runs on major occasions.
The combination must be very important and the choices of captains and vice-captains will be pivotal as they give twice and 1.5 times the points.
Generally, Chittagong is known to produce flat tracks with batsmen ruling the roost for atleast the first three days of the match. However, the forecast of the match is not good at all. Heavy showers are expected on all 5 days of the match.
Meanwhile, just like any subcontinental ground, the pitch is expected to wear down as the game progresses and will help the spinners in a final couple of days.
This will be the one and only Test of the series and as of now, no injury concerns have come from either squads.
