In the chase, the whole top order of Bangladesh faltered to Fazalhaq Farooqi’s spell. The hosts were 45-6 by the end of 11 overs.

BAN vs AFG, 2nd ODI, Who will win the match, Today Match Prediction
Bangladesh is expected to win against Afghanistan.
Even though it will be a cracker of a contest between the two sides, Bangladesh is expected to emerge on top of Afghanistan in this contest. They seem an immaculately balanced side that has all their bases covered be it bowling or batting. After some early dismissals, they came back strong to win the last match.
On the other hand, Afghanistan has world-class spinners to operate with including Rashid Khan and Mujeeb Ur Rahman. They will give a tough fight to Bangladesh at their home ground. Fazalhaq Farooqi bagged the scalp of the top four in the last match but the lack of support from other bowlers took the match away from their grasp.
