Afghanistan cricketers are already in Bangladesh for a high-octane limited-overs tour featuring three ODIs and two T20 Internationals. There were COVID-19 concerns but the visiting players who tested positive have returned negative. So the tour is on. BAN VS AFG 1st ODI Live Scorecard

Despite the absence of Mohammad Shahzad, Gulbadin Naib, Hashmatullah and Hamid Hassan, the Afghans will still pose a threat to Bangladesh. In fact, they are gunning for more glory. 

Afghanistan have appointed former Australian cricketer Stuart Law as the interim coach ahead of the tour. The 53-year-old Law takes over from South African Lance Klusener, who had ended his association with the Afghanistan team in September last year.

The fifty-over matches will be a part of the ongoing ODI Super League which serves as a direct qualifier for the 2023 World Cup in India. Bangladesh have 80 points from 12 matches, while Afghanistan have 60 points from six games.

For Bangladesh, the return of star batter Tamim Iqbal augurs well. And they will enter both the ODIs and T20Is as favourites.
