Not too long ago, Afghanistan even swept Bangladesh 3-0 in a T20I series in Dehradun, their adopted home.

Bangladesh will play their first Super Four match against India in Dubai on Friday in a changed fixture that has drawn much flak.

Asia Cup 2018 Bangladesh vs Afghanistan ODI match will be played at Sheikh Zayed Stadium, Abu Dhabi. For Afghanistan, a good outing with the bat will augur well for the team.

Afghanistan (Playing XI): Mohammad Shahzad (wicket keeper), Ihsanullah Janat, Rahmat Shah, Asghar Afghan (captain), Hashmatullah Shahidi, Samiullah Shenwari, Mohammad Nabi, Gulbadin Naib, Rashid Khan, Aftab Alam and Mujeeb Ur Rahman. Bangladesh outclassed Sri Lanka by 137 runs in the tournament opener on 15th September. In a group that also had 1996 World Cup champions, Sri Lanka, it is Bangladesh and Afghanistan who have secured qualification to the Super Fours of the Asia Cup 2018.

Afghanistan, electing to bat first, made 255/7 in their 50 overs. The last time they faced each other was in 2016 at Dhaka, and Bangladesh had registered a 141-run win over Afghanistan. Bangladesh, who were struggling early on in the innings, rallied to post 261 runs thanks to a brilliant century by Mushfiqur Rahim.

Since its inception, CMCR has strived to collaborate and maintain productive relationships with key Federal and State agencies. It will be used to examine its safety, tolerability and effectiveness for treatment of Essential Tremor (ET ) in adults.

What to expect: Both teams will be wary of bowling first in these conditions especially with a vital game scheduled the following day. Batsmen Mushfiqur Rahim is in great form, and the team work of bowlers is a notable power of Bangladesh's bowling.

On March 1, 2014, Afghanistan beat Bangladesh by 32 runs in their Asia Cup encounter in Fatullah.

The Asia Cup 2018, Bangladesh vs Afghanistan match will begin at 5pm (IST).

A win for either team will help them finish the group stage with 100% record. Both teams battled hard for their victory against Sri Lanka and deserve to be unbeaten in the tournament.

When he sent back skipper Mohammad Nabi (10) with the fifth delivery of the 41st over, Afghanistan were tottering at 160 for seven and Bangladesh looked set to bundle them out for a few more runs.
