BN-A vs AF-A Dream11 : Final match of the series sees rampant Afghanistan step out to seal the series in their favour
Leading five match ODI series 2-1, an extremely convincingly Afghanistan A side step out today looking to emulate the same resounding form they have displayed over the course of the series. The side have been just what the country needed after enduring a torrid time out in the CWC, putting on stellar displays in both the batting and bowling departments across this series.
And the side look certain to seal the series in their favour as well in the previous match before rain decided to intervene and spoil what looked to be a comprehensive win for their side. With their profound bowling unit crumbling Bangladesh A for a mere 176 runs, Afghanistan got off to an exuberant start, running away to 57-0 before incessant rainfall ended up hampering their chances of a win on the day.
The side will be not deterred by that though when they face off against an opponent who just haven’t managed to come to term with them in this series. Afghanistan have been way the superior side, a complete and well-rounded side, blessed with some outstanding and worldclass players who have regaled us in their myriad soirees.
Afghanistan might have slipped up in the third ODI but the side showed immense fighting spirit to comeback from that defeat the last time around. The depth in their side is delightful with the both batting and bowling units brimming to the fore with some exceptional names.
Afghanistan should win this match with ease and go onto win the series 3-1 along with it.
Pitch Conditions And Toss
With rain having lashed the pitch just two days back and the conditions set to be overcast, expect the conditions for batting to be tricky on this one. The pacers should flourish here with the ball massively misbehaving on this wicket, making strokeplay a treacherous task. The side winning the toss will be looking to chase here with a clearer idea of how to craft their innings.

Dream 11 Picks
Wicket-Keepers for BN-A vs AF-A Dream11
Afghanistan’s wicket-keeper, Rahmanullah Gurbaz is our selection over here. He’s been one of the main reasons for his side’s consummate success in the batting facet and paired with his contributions as a safe pair of gloves, he’s bound to get in good points for us today as well.
Batsmen for BN-A vs AF-A Dream11
We’ll begin with our pick from Bangladesh first with Imrul Kayes coming into our side as the only player from the side. He endured a torrid time in ODIs prior to this series but having played on the international arena, he continued to keep his place in the side and has come up with some good runs over the last matches.
Elsewhere we have opted for a two man partnership from Afghanistan. One player who has never left our side over the course of the matches has been the highest scorer of the series, Ibrahim Zadran, someone who has staked his claim for a spot in Afghanistan’s main team. His incredible application and technique see him being picked up by us while Fazal Niazai will be accompanying him.
All-Rounders for BN-A vs AF-A Dream11
We finally compensate with the picks from Bangladesh with both Mahedi Hasan and Afif Hossain being selected by us. Afif has picked up wickets with his spin recently and with him occupying a high position in the batting order as well, we could get points today for our Dream 11 side.
We have the lone selection from Afghanistan A meanwhile with Sharafuddin Ashraf coming in for us with his left arm variety of spin causing massive problems to a heavily right handed packed Bangladesh batting order.
Bowling Order for BN-A vs AF-A Dream11
Given the fact that this pitch will be a tricky aberration to come out and bat on and the paper thin nature of Bangladesh’s batting order, we are picking out a trivalent from Afghanistan in our side. With 13 wickets in 2 test matches, spinner Qais Ahmed failed to resonate the same form in the ODI series but the last match saw him finally flourish.
He’s going to be accompanied by the duo of Karim Janat and Naveen Ul Haq who wrecked havoc among Bangladesh in the last match while from Bangladesh we have gotten in Abu Jayed.
Captain And Vice-Captain for BN-A vs AF-A Dream11
We are picking out Zadran as our captain yet again while Gurbaz is the vice-captain.
