What to expect:Conditions are expected to be hot and humid. The Afghanistan batsmen will fancy their chances of putting up a big score at this venue that is known for its short boundaries.
While the team management was contemplating opening with Mushfiqur at one stage, it looks like that experiment is shelved for now as they opted to include Mohammad Naim and Anamul Haque in the squad. Sabbir Rahman is all set to make his return as the team’s designated finisher.
