Shere Bangla National Stadium Dhaka records: The cricket stadium in Mirpur will be hosting Afghanistan for two T20Is.

Coming on the back of playing a three-match ODI series in Chattogram, Bangladesh and Afghanistan are all in readiness of contesting against each other in a two-match T20I series in Mirpur from tomorrow.

Shere Bangla National Stadium, which had hosted multiple international matches across formats last year, will be hosting one for the first time in 2022. Toss doesn’t really hold much of an importance here as teams batting first have won 28 and teams batting second have won 29 out of the total 57 T20Is played between 2011-2021.

Being the hosts, Bangladesh have played the maximum number of T20Is (39) in Dhaka. However, they have more losses (18) than victories (21) over the years. Afghanistan, who have only played four T20Is at this venue, have won three and lost one.
