BAN vs AFG Dream11 Prediction: Among captains who have led Bangladesh in more than 20 Twenty20 Internationals, Shakib Al Hasan has the lowest win %.
Team Preview: Bangladesh vs. Afghanistan, Third Match of the 2022 Asia Cup
Bangladesh and Afghanistan play the third Asia Cup 2022 match on Tuesday (August 30) at Sharjah. Bangladesh finished second in the prior two tournaments and hopes to win this year. Shakib Al Hasan leads Bangladesh. Shakib’s last leadership ended in September 2019 against Afghanistan, and he’ll resume against the same opponent. Shakib has the lowest win percentage among captains with 20+ T20Is. This is why he was fired last time; he hopes to better this time.
Afghanistan started the tournament well against Sri Lanka. The players gave a dominating performance. Afghanistani bowlers limited Sri Lanka to 105 runs in 19.4 overs. This despite Rashid Khan being wicket less. Afghan batsmen chased this total in 10.1 overs. Bangladesh won’t easily win over Afghanistan.

Ban versus AFG Dream11 Picks:
Top Picks – Batters
In the first game, he scored 37 runs in just 28 deliveries, and he and Rahmanullah Gurbaz put up 83 runs for the first wicket. Zazai has scored 242 runs in 9 games this year, with an average of 34.57 and a strike rate of 134.44. His only 50 in T20Is this year came against Bangladesh in March, and Afghanistan will be hoping for a similar performance from him in this game.
He has been playing well lately and is the team’s vice captain for this tournament. Hossain has scored 585 runs in 35 Twenty20 Internationals since 2021, with an average of 21.66 and a strike rate of 117.46. This year, he has scored an average of 32.5 runs, which is the most runs he has scored in a year since he first started playing. In the last ODI against Zimbabwe, he scored 85 runs and was not out. He also won the Player of the Match award.
Top Picks – All-Rounders
Shakib Al Hasan:
Shakib Al Hasan’s best year in T20Is was 2021. He took 25 wickets with the ball in 18 games, for an average of 16.88. This was the first year since Shakib’s debut in 2006 that he took more than 20 wickets. He hit for 327 runs at an average of 19.23. This was the first time since his debut that he hit for more than 300 runs. This year, he hasn’t been able to score as many runs in T20Is, and the team will be hoping that he gets back into the same groove before the World Cup.
In the first game, he took two wickets and gave up 14 runs in four overs. This is his best bowling figure since 2018. He’s at the bottom of the middle order, and there are some good players at the top of the order, so he might not get to bat. So, he can only help the team by having the ball. We might see “The President” bowl another game-changing game of bowling.
Top Picks – Bowlers
His economy this year is 6, although he hasn’t taken many wickets. He’s wicketless in 4 of 11 matches this year. This year, he’s never taken more than 2 wickets in a game. The pitch may help him spin well in this game, though. He’s a successful bowler in Sharjah Cricket Stadium. He’s taken 10 wickets in 5 matches at 10.1, 5.5, and 11.
He’s also played in Sharjah. His best T20I bowling came here. Mujeeb took 5 wickets for 20 runs against Scotland in the 2015 T20 World Cup. This is the venue’s second-best bowling score. Against Sri Lanka, he took 2 wickets for 24 runs.
