Bangladesh will take on Afghanistan in the 2nd and final T20I of the series. Bangla Tigers are on the safer side and can’t lose the series from here on. With some splendid all-round performances, they sealed a comfortable 61 runs victory in the 1st T20I to take a 1-0 lead in the series. Liton Das and Nasum Ahmed starred with the bat and ball respectively. They don’t want to settle for this and will definitely aim to win the series.
Afghanistan didn’t look convincing at all in the 1st T20I as they failed to chase the moderate target of 155. They were clinical in the 1st half and a poor batting display in the latter half cost them the match. They must win this match to level the series 1-1.

BAN vs AFG, 2nd T20I Pitch Report:
The spinners are like gold dust on this slow surface and the batters should possess high-end skills to score big runs. The wicket will get slower and slower as the game moves on and hence batting first is a good option. Anything more than 150 is a defendable score here.
