Match Preview

It will be BAN vs AFG for the 1st ODI of the 3-match ODI series starting tomorrow at Chittagong.

Furthermore, talking about the one-off Test, then Bangladesh beat Afghanistan by 546 runs and won the series 1-0.

If we talk about Bangladesh’s last ODI series, then Bangladesh defeated Ireland 2-0 in their previous 3-match ODI series with one game going to rain.

Meanwhile, Afghanistan did not have a great ODI series against Sri Lanka as they lost to the hosts by 2-1.

Therefore, they will look to beat Bangladesh at their home in this ODI series and win it after a devastating loss in the one-off Test.

Moreover, Bangladesh will look to win this series and keep their winning momentum going at home.

Thus, we will get a very exciting game between these two sides tomorrow.
