AFG Playing 11 ODI World Cup 2023: Afghanistan will face fellow Asian side Bangladesh in their opening game of the World Cup 2023 on Saturday, 7th October. Interestingly, both sides are known for their strong spin-bowling attack and this game will be played at the Himachal Pradesh Cricket Association Stadium in Dharamsala – a venue known for high-scoring games and helping the pace bowlers.
Afghanistan have had issues recently as they have struggled for consistency. Earlier, they lost a three-match ODI series 0-3 to Pakistan followed by the first-round exit from the Asia Cup 2023. However, Afghanistan will take some confidence from their performance against Sri Lanka in their second match in the Asia Cup where they almost pulled off a miracle victory inside 38 overs while chasing a total of 291.
Afghanistan have all the ammunition in their Arsenal to perform well in the mega event as they are very well versed with the playing conditions as well. But they will have to perform as a unit and every player will have to perform his role to perfection. If it happens, we could expect at least a couple of upsets at the hands of the Afghans.
