Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium, Chattogram, September 5th at 09:30 AM IST
Afghanistan will be playing their third Test in the cricketing history when they collide against Bangladesh in the only Test which will be played at the Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium in Chattogram.
Bangladesh are coming into this game after a disappointing effort in the series against Sri Lanka where they were clean-swept in the three-match series. Shakib-al-Hasan will be captaining the side where a handful of changes have been made.
Meanwhile, Afghanistan are all set to start their new dawn under the leadership of Rashid Khan who was named the skipper of the national side across the formats straight after their tormenting show in the World Cup.
With a new challenge upfront for a young leader in Rashid Khan, it would be interesting to see how he deals with this new challenge.

A dry wicket is on offer which means the spinners are going to get ample purchase from the surface. Both teams have a quality spin bowling attack which is definitely a good sign.

Fantasy picks from Afghanistan-
Rashid Khan still remains as one of the premier members of the squad, with an added responsibility of captaincy, it would be great to see how he deals with it. From 2 Test matches, he has scalped 9 wickets.
Rahmat Shah is their batting mainstay in the middle-order. In 4 Test innings, he has scored 192 runs which includes 2 scores of fifty-plus.
Former skipper Asghar Afghan has mustered 103 runs from 3 Test innings.
All-rounder Mohammad Nabi is yet to deliver with the bat in Tests but has scalped 4wicets so far from 2 Tests.
Fantasy picks from Bangladesh-
Skipper Shakib-al-Hasan holds the key with both bat and ball in this line-up. He has scored 201 runs in his last 5 innings which includes 2 fifties and has scalped 15 wickets.
Mushfiqur Rahim is the most experienced batter in this line-up. He scored a brilliant 205 against Zimbabwe in Dhaka last year. He has been the pillar of Bangladesh's batting unit.
In just 19 Test matches, Mehidy Hasan has scalped 86 wickets and has been brilliant with the ball in recent times.
Mahmudullah has scored two centuries in his last three Test. He was decent in the World Cup as well and will be looking to contribute here as well.
