Bangladesh vs Afghanistan World Cup 2023 Match Details
Bangladesh’s performance in ODI cricket has indeed been inconsistent in recent years, and their disappointment in the Asia Cup 2023, where they exited during the group stage, reflects this inconsistency. Shakib Al Hasan, the captain of the team for the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup 2023, is facing a form slump and will need to step up his performance to improve their standing in the league stage.
On the other hand, Afghanistan showed tremendous promise earlier in the year but encountered a decline in form over the past few months. The team’s key player, Rashid Khan, is currently out of form, which is a concerning factor given his crucial role. Despite this, Afghanistan is still expected to have the upper hand and is considered the favorite to win the match against Bangladesh.
