At the Sharjah Cricket Stadium, Team Bangladesh will begin their T20 Asia Cup 2022 campaign on August 30 (Tuesday) against Afghanistan.
Afghanistan has already won their first game, easily defeating Sri Lanka in their opening encounter of the competition. The Sri Lankan team struggled against Afghanistan's bowlers, unable to score even 110 runs in their allowed 20 overs. In response, the Afghan batsmen successfully chased down the total with 10.1 overs remaining and 8 wickets in hand, earning two significant points for their team.
Speaking of Bangladesh, they have also unveiled a formidable-looking squad for the competition, with experienced all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan serving as the team's captain. Taskin Ahmed and Mustafizur Rahman, two of Bangladesh's top pacers, are also available to Team Bangladesh. If their team hopes to achieve history by winning the Asia Cup for the first time, batsmen like Shakib, Mushfiqur Rahim, and Mahmudullah will need to be at the top of their game.
The third match of the Asia Cup is scheduled for perfect weather, and there are no indications of rain. The anticipated humidity is 37 percent, with an average wind speed of 28 km/h. Even though the conditions are expected to be hot, the match will take place at 6:00 PM local time. As a result, a gradual drop in temperature is predicted, which will be very advantageous to the players. A packed house is anticipated at the Sharjah Cricket Stadium, where a high-scoring contest is expected due to the presence of some of the best ball-hitters on both teams. The short boundaries are also expected to play a crucial role in the upcoming encounter.
