After the completion of a one-off Test and the three-match ODI series, Bangladesh will host Afghanistan in a two-match T20I series, starting on Friday, July 14.

Hosts, Bangladesh won the one-off Test against Afghanistan by a whopping 546 runs before succumbing to a 1-2 defeat in the three-match ODI series against the visitors.

The Tigers will be hoping to make amends in front of their home fans in the two T20Is against Bangladesh, which will be held at the Sylhet International Cricket Stadium.

Bangladesh will be led by experienced all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan in the T20Is series and boast a strong squad with the likes of Litton Das, Mehidy Hasan, Taskin Ahmed, Shoriful Islam, and Mustafizur Rahman all looking to impress.

Afghanistan, on the other hand, will be led by spin maestro Rashid Khan and they too have a good-looking team on paper with the likes of Hazratullah Zazai, Mohammad Nabi, Rahmanullah Gurbaz, Mujeeb Ur Rahman, and Noor Ahmad, all part of the squad.

Bangladesh are currently ninth in the ICC Men’s T20I rankings, while Afghanistan are one spot below them in 10th position.
