Ban Vs Afg

On a lovely Saturday morning, after two exciting and intense games of the World Cup 2023, the third match Bangladesh vs. Afghanistan will be played. This match will be played on October, 7 at the Himachal Pradesh Cricket Affiliation Stadium at 10:00 am.

Afghanistan, who is not expected to win the World Cup, will go to India and try to surprise their opponents with clever spin and powerful hitting. The situation in India will be a great help to the Afghan team who don’t have much experience in the 50-over World Cup. In the past year, Afghanistan has done well and directly earned a spot in the upcoming World Cup.

Ban Vs Afg 1


Date: Oct 07, 2023
Match: 3rd Match
Teams: Bangladesh Vs Afghanistan
Venue: Himachal Pradesh Cricket Affiliation Stadium, Dharamsala
Time: 5:00 am GMT | 10:30 am Local


The HPCA stadium pitch is not different from other cricket stadiums in India because it is easier for bowlers to bowl on.
Therefore, this surface makes it easier for batsmen to hinder their opponents. The wind and tall grass called Rydberg help make the swing move. Once a team wins the toss, both teams take turns batting on this pitch. The goal is to score a total of at least 180 runs or more. Teams find it difficult to chase on this surface; however, two T-20 matches show that the teams chasing the target have a much better record here.

HEAD-TO-HEAD MATCH HISTORY Bangladesh Vs Afghanistan

Bangladesh and Afghanistan have competed in a total of 15 One-Day International (ODI) matches. Bangladesh won 9 games, and Afghanistan won 6 games.

The last one-day international match between these two teams took place in Walk 2023, and Afghanistan won the game by 7 wickets. Here is the record of matches played between Bangladesh and Afghanistan in One Day Internationals (ODIs).

Best Batter

Shakib is among the category of best all-rounders in the world. He consistently performs exceptionally well for his team. He is a very impressive player because he can score runs quickly and take important wickets with his left-arm spin.

Best Bowler

Mustafizur Rahman, also known as The Fizz, is a fast bowler from Bangladesh. Moreover, he can bowl at a speed of about 130 kilometers per hour. He is a famous and prominent player in all formats of the game. He will also be the backbone of his team in the World Cup.


Best Batter

There’s no doubt that Rahmanullah Gurbaz deserves to be on this list. He did well and got a high score of 151 when Pakistan won the previous ODI series. The opening player to bat has been consistently good for Afghanistan, and we expect him to continue performing well in the next game. The group relies on Gurbaz’s performance to some extent. Gurbaz has played a similarly important role in the Afghan squad recently, just like Shakib’s role with Bangladesh.

Best Bowler

Afghanistan has a strong player named Rashid Khan, who will be important to watch. Rashid, a spin bowler, has impressed everyone in the game of cricket with his unusual skills and different types of deliveries.


Here we go with a SWOT (strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats) Analysis of both teams:

Team Bangladesh Strengths

Shakib Al Hasan is a strong leader who can both bat and bowl with his left hand. His wealth of experience and diverse skills make him a valuable asset, impacting both the offense and defense in the game. The presence of young talents like Najmul Hossain Shanto and Mushfiqur Rahim adds depth and agility to the team. Their ability to adapt quickly and perform well under pressure can make a big difference in a situation.

Team Bangladesh Weaknesses

As far as Bangladesh’s talented young players are concerned, they still need experience. In the middle order, they may face difficulty in handling tough situations. If there is none to guide them, they might feel weak during mid of the game. The bowlers have not been performing well during the last few matches. The whole team should not just depend on specific bowlers for their good performance.

Opportunities For Team Bangladesh 

The Young players of the team have a golden chance to touch new heights of success. This can be done with continuous improvement during practice matches. They can use their fresh minds and new techniques to make their team win. They can make a healthy and talented team by combining young players the experienced ones.

Threats For Team Bangladesh

All other teams will prefer using their top players in the World Cup Matches. Team Bangladesh is a bit weaker than other teams. So, it will be challenging for them to chase some huge targets to win. Some players may lack experience during high pressure if they get stuck in any situation during important matches.

Team Afghanistan Strengths

Spinners are the key players for Afghanistan to win in the upcoming WC. The Afghan side has three good spin bowlers Rashid Khan, Mujeeb ur Rahman, and Mohammad Nabi. The three members of the group have been very great for a long time. While Mujeeb takes responsibility for the new ball, Afghanistan tends to bring Nabi in the middle phase of the innings to stop the flow of runs. Rashid, on the other hand, is usually saved for the later, more crucial overs. However, all three of them can use their magical spin bowling to change the direction of the ball. However, this can be even more lethal on the slow-turning tracks of Himachal where they will be playing their match.

Team Afghanistan Weaknesses 

Afghanistan usually has a normal batting team, but they have been good at scoring runs. However, they tend to struggle in crucial moments of the match. Recently, a clear example was seen when Rashid Khan was left stranded at the other end as his team lost in the Asia Cup against Sri Lanka. Gurbaz, Zadran, and Shahidi need to take on a big responsibility in leading the team because they have some great skills in batting, including Najibullah, Nabi, and Rashid.

Opportunities For Team Afghanistan

Fast bowler Naveen-ul-Haq has been selected to play for the Afghan team in this World Cup. He is hopeful to perform well in India. After receiving a lot of criticism from Indian fans because of the conflict with Virat Kohli, Naveen will try to impress some of his critics with his bowling skills. Additionally, the team also includes all-rounder Azmatullah Omarzai, who was absent from the Asian Trophy squad. Omarzai is also a good player who can bat lower in the lineup and can also be useful with the ball.

Threats For Team Afghanistan

The Afghan team will face challenges and difficulties against other teams in the World Cup. The Asian side has also experienced injuries recently and one of their main challenges will be to keep their important players healthy and make changes based on the situation.


This coordinate will be almost difficult to limit because both of these teams are very strong. Bangladesh has made changes to its batting line-up and has a strong bowling attack, so the match will be closely contested.

On the other hand, they need to score a lot of points to win against Afghanistan. Meanwhile, Afghanistan has a strong group of batters. AFG has a strong attack led by Rashid Khan. Even though both groups seem strong and almost equal.

To determine the outcome of the match, both teams need to perform exceptionally. In this way, every team must give their very best during this important event.


In big competitions like the World Cup 2023, the way the toss is thrown affects the game a lot. On this pitch, the team that wins the toss should choose to bat first and try to score a lot of runs. At that moment, they should bowl consistently to take wickets and put pressure on the opposing team.


The weather will be mostly clear. The temperature is supposed to be 28’C. Patchy rains might disturb the match in case of high-speed winds.


Deciding on the victory of either the Ban or the AFG ODI World Cup match is a tough decision. Both groups are equally organized, and it appears that the outcome could go in either direction. The throw and the delivery will be very important, and the weather also seems to have an impact. It will be an exciting game to watch, and I’m sure it will be very close.

In the past, Bangladesh has won more ODI matches against Afghanistan. So, Bangladesh is expected to have a good chance of winning the game against Afghanistan.
