It will be BAN vs AFG for the 3rd ODI of the 3-match series in two days’ time at Chittagong once again.
Moreover, looking back at the previous ODI, then Afghanistan beat the hosts yet again by 142 runs and sealed the series 2-0.
Additionally, Bangladesh has not been able to find out a way to outfox the Afghani bowlers.
Furthermore, batting first, Afghanistan made a massive 331/9 in their 50 overs and asked the hosts to chase down 332.
However, Bangladesh could muster only 189 runs in 43.2 overs with all of their side out.
This makes the 3rd ODI a dead rubber between these two sides and we will witness some cracking action.
