Bangladesh would eye a comeback in the T20I series when they take on Afghanistan in the second T20I at Dehradun on Tuesday to level the series 1-1. Afghanistan won the first T20I by 45 runs against Bangladesh to go 1-0 up in the series. Bangladesh must win the second T20I to avoid a series loss. Afghanistan are blessed with quality spin attack and that has made the difference in the end results. Bangladesh must put up a better show to stop Afghanistan from running away with the series.
Best economical pick – Someone who offers a true mystery element to this series would be Afghanistan’s off-spinner Mujeeb Zadran. His simple, easy-on-the-eye action is in many ways deceptive. As that camouflages the wide variety of deliveries he has up his sleeve. Batsmen will take time to pick his variations which goes in Afghanistan’s favor. Mujeeb bowled an economical spell in the first T20I.
Top captains & vice captains – Rashid Khan is creating one history after another. After a super-successful show in IPL 2018, Rashid Khan came back strongly to help Afghanistan post their maiden T20I win over Bangladesh at Dehradun on Sunday. Rashid Khan took three wickets for 13 runs in 3 overs to help Afghanistan beat Bangladesh by 45 runs in the first T20I. The match-winning performance helped Rashid Khan create history as he became the fastest player in terms of time taken to take 50 T20I wickets. The Bangladesh skipper Shakib Al Hasan is among the finest all-rounders going around in all forms of the game currently, especially in T20’s. Lots will ride on his skill and experience when his team takes on Afghanistan in the 2nd T20I at Dehradun on Tuesday. More than 1000 runs in 64 T20I’s along with 75 wickets at a fantastic economy rate of 6.98 exemplifies his strength and importance as a T20 player. Bangladesh will surely hope he performs well in this do or die match.
Smart pick – The rock at the top of the batting order, Tamim Iqbal is a crucial cog in Bangladesh’s arsenal. His attacking, free-flowing batting coupled with his experience is a huge bonus. As once he gets going, he builds a solid platform for his side to capitalize on and that can help them his side triumph over Afghanistan- a team full of confidence, wanting to put on a show.
Cautious Pick – Known as a T20 specialist in Bangladesh cricket, middle order batsman Sabbir Rahman has been failing again and again for Bangladesh in this format. After a poor show in Nidahas Trophy, Sabbir again failed to score in the first match of this series, where he got out cheaply for a golden duck.
My XI – Rashid Khan (Captain), Shakib al Hasan (Vice-Captain), Mujeeb Zadran, M Shahzad, Tamim Iqbal, Asghar Stanikzai,Shafiqullah, Shapoor Zadran, Mahmudullah, Liton Das, Usman Ghani
