BAN vs AFG Dream11 Prediction | 1st T20I | Afghanistan make big changes

Bangladesh vs Afghanistan will play in the 1st T20I of the Afghanistan tour of Bangladesh 2022 at Shere Bangla National Stadium, Dhaka. We will cover BAN vs AFG Dream11 Prediction, Probable Playing 11, and Fantasy Cricket Tips.


Bangladesh have won the ODI series and it is now time for the T20Is. Bangladesh have a lot of work to do in this format and have lost their last 8 T20Is.

Tamim Iqbal is still unavailable for the T20Is and that will definitely hurt them. Shakib Al Hasan will be their key man as usual. Mustafizur Rahman will lead the pace attack. 

They will treat this series as a preparation for the T20 World Cup which is scheduled later this year. 

Bangladesh will look to break their losing streak and also figure out their ideal combination ahead of the big picture.


Afghanistan lost the ODI series but are a dangerous side in the shortest format. Their team is filled with young guns and have taken some big decisions by dropping senior players. 

Rashid Khan will lead the bowling attack while Rahmanullah Gurbaz will be the player to watch out for in the Afghani batting line up.

Mohammad Nabi will lead the side and will also play a crucial role with both bat and ball in this series. 

Afghanistan has very impressive H2H numbers against the hosts and will look to fancy their chances.

They too will look to find out their best combination ahead of the World Cup and groom the young guys in the squad.
