AFGH vs BAN Dream11 Prediction, match preview and probable playing XI of the 6th match of Bangladesh Tri-Series 2019. Bangladesh will take on Afghanistan in the sixth T20I at Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium in Chattogram.
Team Afghanistan is a team to beat in the T20I format and have found a lot of success in this format. Their 12-match winning streak in T20I ended yesterday when they lost to Zimbabwe by 7 wickets.
Batting first, Young gun Rahmanullah Gurbaz played attacking knock of 61 runs and was supported by Hazratullah Zazai to give a solid start to the team but failed to capitalize and could only score 155 runs. In defense, Mujeeb Ur Rahman struck twice but could not stop Zimbabwe skipper from a memorable retirement. They will hope for a better performance from all players tomorrow and defeat hosts to enter the finale of tri-series with momentum on their side.
On the other hand, Bangladesh has never been able to find an optimum combination for T20I format and also lack the intent to succeed in the shortest form of international cricket. After a narrow victory against Zimbabwe in first encounter and loss to Afghanistan in second, They bounced back in the last match defeating Zimbabwe by 39 runs.
