Bangladesh and Afghanistan are set to face each other in the sixth match of the Asia Cup 2018 at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi on Thursday, September 20. Both of them have cemented their spots in Super 4.

Asghar Afghan’s team have been very impressive in the ODI format where they have had an upper hand in their last 8 matches.
Their only loss came against Ireland in the second one dayer at Belfast.
The loss of left hander Tamim Iqbal will be a massive blow to the Bangla Tigers. Mominul Haque is likely to play his ODI after a gap of three years.

Their spin twins Rashid Khan and Mujeeb Ur Rahman who shared 4 wickets between them against Sri Lanka, would be looking for a repeat performance.
