BAN vs AFG Match Prediction – Who will win today's 1st ODI match?

After absolutely decimating Afghanistan in the one-off Test, Bangladesh will be hoping to keep up with the momentum in the upcoming three-match ODI series. With the hope to do well in the 2023 ODI World Cup, the home team will be desperate to start their preparation well, and thus, the series against Afghanistan will be key for the Tamim Iqbal-led side. It will be also interesting to see how the Bangla Tigers tackle the dangerous Rashid Khan.

When it comes to Afghanistan, opener Usman Ghani shocked the cricketing world by calling out the ACB officials corrupt. Thus, the best way to get out of that controversy is to do well in the forthcoming match, but the challenge will not be easy. In order to get the job done, the team will depend a lot on Rashid, Rahmanullah Gurbaz and the skipper Hashmatullah Shahidi. However, consistency has been their biggest problem, and thus, that is one area that the team will be hoping to improve on before the mega tournament in India.
