BAN vs AFG Dream11 Prediction, Fantasy Cricket Tips & Playing XI Updates for Today's Cricket Match - September 21st, 2019
The final round-robin game of the ongoing tri-series sees Bangladesh and Afghanistan play each other in what is a preview of the final game on Saturday at the Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium. Both teams have already made it to the final of the series and look well balanced on paper. Most of their players have ample experience playing in various T20 leagues across the world as well with Rashid Khan being a benefactor of the system.
The previous game between the two sides saw Mohd Nabi and Mujeeb Zadran revel against a hapless Bangladesh unit with only Mahmudullah Riyad scoring some runs against them. In spite of a fairly one-sided affair last week, a more entertaining and enthralling game is expected from the two sides on Saturday.
\Here are a few tips to help you pick your Dream11 team.
BAN vs AFG Squads
Shakib Al Hasan (C), Shafiul Islam, Sabbir Rahman, Mahmudullah, Afif Hossain, Mosaddek Hossain, Mohd Naim, Mohammad Saifuddin, Liton Das, Mushfiqur Rahim, Taijul Islam, Mustafizur Rahman and Nazmul Shanto
Rashid Khan(C), Hazratullah Zazai, Ashgar Afghan, Najeeb Tarakai, Najibullah Zadran, Mohd Nabi, Sharafuddin Ashraf, Gulbadin Naib, Fazal Niazai, Shafiqullah Shafiq, Rahmanullah, Mujeeb ur Rahman, Shahidullah, Karim Janat, Fareed Malik, Dawlat Zadran and Naveen ul Haq
BAN vs AFG Playing XI Updates
Aminul Islam isn't fit for this game which paves the way for Taijul to reclaim his spot in the side. The batting unit should remain the same in all likelihood with Shakib Al Hasan and Mushfiqur Rahim due for a big score in the top order. Against a good Afghan bowling unit, they will need their openers to be in top gear with Liton Das threatening to take off in each and every game without going on to make a fifty. The onus will be on Mohd Saifuddin and Mustafizur Rahman in the bowling department as they look to gather momentum heading into the final.
Possible XI: Liton, Shanto, Shakib(C), Rahim(WK), Mahmudullah, Afif, Mosaddek, Saif, Taijul, Shafiul and Mustafizur
As for the Afghans, a couple of changes are on the cards with this game being a dead rubber. They expect a lot from Hazratullah Zazai, who hasn't done well at the top of the order so far. Their middle-order has been absolutely sensational with Afghan and Najibullah revelling alongside Mohammad Nabi. Their bowling unit is well settled as well with Rashid Khan and Mujeeb ur Rahman wreaking havoc. All eyes will be upon Rashid, who recently turned 21, with his leg-spin bound to trouble the Bangladesh batsmen.
Possible XI: Zazai, Rahmanullah (WK), Tarakai, Nabi, Najib, Ashgar, Naib, Rashid(C), Dawlat, Mujeeb and Sharafuddin.

BAN vs AFG Pitch Report
The pitch should favour strokeplay with scores of 160-170 being expected from both sides. While the spinners will get some help from the wicket, pacers will hold the key with variations and yorkers bound to serve them well in the death overs. With there being no threat of rain, fans are in for a treat with both Bangladesh and Afghanistan looking to sustain their momentum.
BAN vs AFG Fantasy Tips and Suggestions
Wicket-keeper: Both Rahmanullah and Mushfiqur Rahim are decent options to have in the side but it is Liton Das, who is picked in the fantasy side for this game. Das has done well at the top of the order but hasn't converted his starts. Expect him to tee off against the Afghan bowlers.
Batsmen: Hazratullah Zazai and Ashgar Afghan are the preferred batsmen from the Afghan roster along with the likes of Mahmudullah and Shanto. Mahmudullah has 120 runs in three games so far and looks good for more on Saturday. Afif Hossain is another youngster worth picking in the fantasy team with his off-spin also proving to be useful.
All-rounders: Mohammad Nabi and Shakib Al Hasan are the designated all-rounders in the fantasy team with their skill-set being second to not many in the world. While Nabi has excelled with the bat, Shakib is due for a big one at the top of the order although he has been amongst the wicket-takers in all three games. Mosaddek Hossain is another candidate whose pinch-hitting could prove to be the difference between the two sides.
Bowlers: While Rashid Khan and Saifuddin are must-have players in the fantasy team, Mujeeb ur Rahman is another player whose off-spin could yield a wicket or two in this game. One of Mustafizur Rahman or the in-form Shafiul Islam should suffice as the final bowling option.
Captain: SRH teammates, Shakib Al Hasan and Rashid Khan are the prime candidates for captaincy given their form with the ball this series. If an established batsman is to be picked as captain, look no further than Liton Das, who is in decent form with the bat.
Fantasy Suggestion #1: Rahmanullah Gurbaz, Mushfiqur Rahim, Najibullah Zadran, Mahmudullah Riyad, Afif Hossain, Mohd Nabi, Shakib Al Hasan, Rashid Khan, Mujeeb ur Rahman, Taijul Islam and Mohd Saifuddin. Captain: Shakib Al Hasan, Vice-Captain: Rashid Khan
Fantasy Suggestion #2: Liton Das, Ashgar Afghan, Hazratullah Zazai, Mahmudullah Riyad, Nazmul Shanto, Mohd Nabi, Shakib Al Hasan, Rashid Khan, Mujeeb ur Rahman, Mohd Saifuddin and Shafiul Islam. Captain: Rashid Khan, Vice-Captain: Liton Das
