AFGH vs BAN Dream 11 Team: Injury updates, team changes and other tips
After sending Sri Lanka home, Afghanistan and Bangladesh lock horns against each other in a dead rubber. Both the sides would want to grab the opportunity of ‘inconsequential tie’ for trying out their bench strength ahead of the super-four stage.
The two sides had met in the T20 format earlier this year where Afghanistan clean swept Bangladesh (3-0). However, the change in format would even out the stakes.
