BN-A vs AF-A Dream11 : Bangladesh A look to win their second match of the series and level the field at 2-2 when they face off against Afghanistan A today.
In what was turning out to be the perfect outing for Afghanistan A against Bangladesh with the side going onto take a 2-0 lead in the five match series, Afghanistan finally suffered their first defeat n the previous. Their batting line-up gave way, seeing the main platform which had lead to their exuberant success crumble to allow Bangladesh to find a way back into the series.
Batting first in the match, whilst everyone expect Afghanistan’s top-order to turn up yet again and deliver an outstanding show with the bat, the way they crumbled was agonising to see. It was not the top-order which disappointed though but the middle-order which made for tedious viewing with the batsmen from number 4 refusing to step upto the mantle the one time they were asked to.
Folding out for 122 in 33 overs in the end, despite making early inroads in their defence of the paltry total to have Bangladesh at 48-3, the score at hand was too little to play around with at the end of the day. Now taking on Bangladesh A once again today, Afghanistan A will be looking to rectify on the first mistakes committed by them in the series and seal a series which they so befittingly deserve to win.
Afghanistan showed their first signs of weakness in the previous encounter with the middle-order leaving much to be yearned for, expect it to be a onetime collapse. The batting unit has been extradonaire for the side otherwise, packed with batsmen who know what it takes to succeed at the highest level.
Afghanistan should cover their gaping holes pretty quickly today and come out of this fixture with not only a win but having made the series their own as well.
Pitch Conditions And Toss
Anything above 250 should be an ideal score on this surface which will offer something to the pacers. The new ball will frisk around for atleast 10 overs and batting in the initial part will be tough for either side here. Chasing is the better proposition on a surface of this nature.

Dream 11 Picks
Wicket-Keepers for BN-A vs AF-A Dream11
Afghanistan’s Rahmanullah Gurbaz is our wicket-keeper selection for this one. His outing the last time around doesn’t take anything away from his stellar performances up till now we see him recovering from that slip up to put in another solid show with the bat today.
Batsmen for BN-A vs AF-A Dream11
A half-century and a century in the opening two matches followed up what has been an incredible test series for Ibrahim Zadran. The most consistent bat out of the two sides, he’s an amazing performer, someone who has acted as the fulcrum of his side to consistently come up with pivotal knocks. We are pairing him up with Fazal Niazai who scored a man of the match innings in the second ODI.
From Bangladesh we have opted for Imrul Kayes with his role bound to increase given Sabbir Rahman’s departure for the series to join Bangladesh for their ODI series against Sri Lanka. Fazel Mahmud is picked up as well after his half-century saw Bangladesh win the match as he put on a 75 run stand for the third wicket.
All-Rounders for BN-A vs AF-A Dream11
The two all-rounders come in from either side with us picking out Mahedi Hasan from Bangladesh while its Sharafuddin Ashraf who is selected by us from Afghanistan A. He is someone who is always amongst the points, a pick who is a relatively safe bet given that he’ll contribute with a neat little haul for your side.
Bowling Order for BN-A vs AF-A Dream11
With both sides having shown that they have batting units who can lose their way when pummelled under the slightest bit of pressure, our selection of four bowlers justifies itself. With the track along expected to break down further today, the two bowlers come in from either side with us envisaging wickets to tumble in this one.
From Bangladesh its Abu Hider and Abu Jayed while Afghanistan are being represented by the series leading wicket taker, Karim Janat. The pacer has been quissential in getting the ball to sing his music and found an able partner in the form of Farid Malik who was brought into play his first match. In case Farid is not selected for this one, we will be picking up Ahmed.
Captain And Vice-Captain
We repose our faith in the batsmen from Afghanistan with Zadran our captain while Niazai is our vice-captain.
