Bangladesh vs Afghanistan Today Match Prediction Preview:

Welcome to the BAN vs AFG Today Prediction curated by Kheltalk cricket experts. In the 1st T20I of this stellar series, Bangladesh will be crossing swords with Afghanistan.

Afghanistan put on a resounding show in the ODI series and defeated the hosts at home; something which is extraordinary as the likes of Australia and India couldn’t do so, the last time they played an ODI series in Bangladesh.

However, Bangladesh managed to pull one ODI back and had won the last game. The T20I series will be a different ball game altogether though.
