BN-A vs AF-A Dream11 Team: Unstoppable Afghanistan A look to take an unprecedented 3-0 series lead today when they square off against Bangladesh A in the third match of the series
Where the Afghanistan main cricket team was agonising at the CWC, Afghanistan A have made for enthralling viewing. After winning the test series against Bangladesh A by a margin of 1-0, Afghanistan A have gone onto be buoyed by that compelling win to build on the momentum in the ODI series.
After registering a humongous 10 wicket win in the opening ODI of the 5 match series, Afghanistan A went onto register another win, successfully chasing down a strong target this time. In pursuit of Bangladesh’s 281, Afghanistan were yet again guided by the ever bankable Ibrahim Zadran who went onto score another 100 to see his side cruise to a simple win at the end of the day.
Leading 2-0 in the series now, Afghanistan A head out in the third match of the series today with the clear agenda of taking an unassailable 3-0 win in the series today. With several of their players lining up a place in the country’s main team, expect the side to only go onto further elevate their performance in today’s faceoff and reaffirm the momentous identity of their side.
Elsewhere for Bangladesh, the misdemeanour refuses to seize. While the side managed to put together a good enough score in the previous match, the bowling unit has offered next to nothing, allowing Afghanistan to put on the runs with ease and keep stitching together vital partnerships to imbed their framework of two successful run chases.
This Afghanistan side perfectly epitomises the massive ascendancy the country is on in the international cricketing fraternity, way more a complete and well-rounded side than the main outfit. Be it at the bating or bowling front, the side is lined up with specialists, players who love taking the accountability on themselves and delivering outright winning performances.
The side will continue on their merry way today as well and expect them to seal the series in their favour today.
