Southampton, June 24, Monday at 03:00 PM IST
After nearly pulling it off against India, Afghanistan will face off Bangladesh in their next fixture of ICC Cricket World Cup 2019. Afghanistan fell short by 11 runs against India, courtesy M Shami’s hat-trick in the final over on Saturday at Southampton. In six games, Afghanistan now has six defeats and is still looking for the maiden win in the tournament.
Bangladesh, on the opposite, fought bravely against the giant target of 383 runs set by Australia and will look to get back on track with a win against demoralised Afghanistan. With 5 points in six games, Bangladesh is sitting sixth in the table with three more games to go.
While Afghanistan will be playing only for pride, Bangladesh needs to win each of the remaining games to keep their hopes of a semi-final spot alive.
The match will begin at 03:00 PM IST.
