This is a must play for Afghanistan to level the streak.
Bangladesh will face Afghanistan in the 2n/a and last T20I of the series. Bangla Tigers are on the safer side and cannot lose the series from now on. With splendid all-around performances, they sealed a comfortable 61-point victory in the 1st T20I to take a 1-0 series lead. Liton Das and Nasum Ahmed played with the bat and the ball respectively. They don’t want to settle for that and will definitely be aiming to win the series.
Afghanistan did not look convincing at all at 1st T20I as they failed to meet the moderate target of 155. They were clinical in the 1st halftime and a poor batting display in the second half cost them the game. They must win this match to tie the series 1-1.

BAN against AFG, 2nd T20I Presentation report:
Spinners are like gold dust on this slow surface and hitters need to have high-end skills to score big runs. The wicket will get slower as the game progresses and so hitting first is a good option. Anything over 150 is a defensible score here.

Top picks for BAN vs AFG Dream11 match:
Top Picks – Drummers
Naim Sheikh must use the opportunity to the fullest. He failed to impress again in the 1st T20I with the bat. He needs to shoot to cement his place.
Hazratullah Zazai is more of a T20 specialist, he didn’t have a great outing in the 1st T20I where he managed to score only 6 points. He is a very low player and a good choice for your fantasy teams.
High Choice – Versatile
You can’t ignore Shakib Al Hasan while choosing your team. He is Bangladesh’s first all-rounder in all formats. He only scored 5 runs with the bat in the 1st T20I and compensated for this by choosing 2 important wickets.
Mohammad Nabi sailed well in the 1st T20I and came out at the wrong time for 16 runs. He must lead by example in this game.
Top Picks – Bowlers
Nasum Ahmed was Player of the Match for his inspirational bowling performances in the 1st T20I. He picked up 4 wickets conceding just 10 runs in his full quota of 4 overs.
Rashid Khan is always economical and hardly goes for groceries. He picked up a wicket in the 1st T20I at a saving of 3.75.
Top Picks – Wicket keepers
Credit for Liton Das for playing a one-inning gem in the 1st T20I. He was Bangladesh’s top scorer where he scored 60 runs from 44 balls, including 4 fours and 2 sixes.
BAN vs. AFG Must Picks for Dream11 Fantasy Cricket:
Suggestion to play #1 XI for BAN vs AFG Dream11 Fantasy Cricket:
Liton Das (c), Najibullah Zadran, Hazratullah Zazai (vc), Afif Hossain, Munim Shahriar, Shakib Al Hasan, Mohammad Nabi, Azmatullah Omarzai, Mustafizur Rahman, Nasum Ahmed, Mujeeb Ur Rahman

Liton Das, Rahmanullah Gurbaz, Najibullah Zadran (vc), Hazratullah Zazai, Naim Sheikh, Mahmudullah, Chakib Al Hasan (c), Mohammad Nabi, Rashid Khan, Nasum Ahmed, Fazal Haq
BAN vs AFG Risky captain picks:
The “Fiz” Mustafizur Rahman picked up a wicket in the 1st T20I at a saving of 6.33. He varies his pace quite well which makes him one of the best bowlers in this format. You can take a risk and choose him as your fantasy team skipper.
Consistency is the main problem with Rahmanullah Gurbaz. He came out for a no score in the 1st T20I, he’s a risky captain choice for your fantasy teams.
Player to avoid:
Darwish Rasooli only played one T20I and given his lack of experience, best avoided when building your fantasy teams.
