On the other hand, Afghanistan, who are still in search of their maiden win in the tournament, will be drawing a lot of positive from their previous game against India on Saturday where they nearly had the match in their control but they lost by 11 runs.

The Mashrafe Mortaza-led side, which is now placed at sixth spot with five points, has batted pretty well so far in the tournament.

Bangladesh reached the quarterfinals at the last Cricket World Cup, has a 4-3 lead over Afghanistan in one-day internationals and has allrounder Skakib Al Hasan averaging 106 in this tournament.

On the other hand, Afghanistan, who are still in search of their maiden win in the tournament, will be drawing a lot of positive from their previous game against India.

Afghanistan's bowling unit had suffered against England but they delivered a commanding performance against Virat Kohli's side, ensuring they could only score 224 in the first innings before falling short by just 11 runs.

There was no immediate word from the government on why Mr Sirisena changed his mind, but security remains tight in the capital. On April 21, 2019, 258 people were killed in a series of suicide bombings targeting Christians on Easter Sunday.

As far as Afghanistan is concerned, Naib will be expecting the spinners to recreate the magic against Bangladesh - just like it did against India.

The weather is expected to be warm. The dryness of the pitch is expected to bring spin into play, much like it did during the game between India and Afghanistan.

"I know Bangladesh also have showed their skills in this tournament, how they played, and they chased 320 against West Indies", he said. Although they got hammered by England when they bowled, the Afghan batsmen showed composure to bat 50 overs against a sharp English attack.
