BAN vs AFG Today Match Prediction, 1st ODI, Who Will Win the Match?

Bangladesh to win

After simply blanking Afghanistan in the Test match in June, Bangladesh would be pretty confident ahead of this ODI fixture.

Few of the Bangladeshi players in the form of Najmul Hossain Shanto, Ebadot Hossain and Mominul Haque are in good form and would be looking to continue their good form.

Najmul Hossain Shanto scored twin-hundreds in the two innings and deservedly bagged the player of the match in that game.
