Bangladesh will face Afghanistan in the Super Four match of the Asia Cup 2018 at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi on Sunday.

 

Both Bangladesh and Afghanistan will play their second match in the Super Four after registering a loss in their previous matches.

 

Afghanistan will aim to beat a troubled Bangladesh side for the second time in the tournament.

 

Bangladesh lost their last encounter against India while Afghanistan suffered a defeat to Pakistan. Concerned over the injury and the poor form of top-order batsmen, Bangladesh on Friday recalled the experienced Soumya Sarkar and Imrul Kayes to bolster their squad for the ongoing Asia Cup.

 

Teams:

Bangladesh (Playing XI): Liton Das, Imrul Kayes, Shakib Al Hasan, Mushfiqur Rahim(w), Nazmul Hossain Shanto, Mohammad Mithun, Mahmudullah, Mashrafe Mortaza(c), Mehidy Hasan, Mustafizur Rahman, Nazmul Islam

 

Afghanistan (Playing XI): Mohammad Shahzad(w), Ihsanullah Janat, Rahmat Shah, Hashmatullah Shahidi, Samiullah Shenwari, Asghar Afghan(c), Mohammad Nabi, Gulbadin Naib, Rashid Khan, Aftab Alam, Mujeeb Ur Rahman
