ICC World Cup 2019: AFGH vs BAN Dream11 Captain: Why are Nabi, Tamim and Shakib best bets?

By Chaitanya Laxman

In the ICC World Cup 2019, Bangladesh take on Afghanistan on Monday. Bangladesh are high on confidence after beating South Africa and Windies. On the other hand, Afghanistan must be feeling pumped up after giving India a scare in their last match.

Both teams have quality spinners and hence this can be another spin trial in the World Cup. For the Dream11 captain, watch out for these three players as they might hold the key for this game.

#3. Mushfiqur Rahim:

The Bangladesh wicket-keeper scored  a stunning hundred against Australia to stamp his value and now he will be eager to inflict further damage against Afghanistan.

Rahim is a solid player of spin and hence he can be expected to make big impact.

#2. Mohammad Nabi:

The Afghanistan all-rounder had almost pulled off an incredible win against India with his cool and composed fifty. He is a dangerous batsman and has all the shots in the armoury.

Add to it his effective spin bowling and you have a big impact player.
