Afghan hitter Rashid Khan says Bangladesh captain Shakib Al Hasan will make a big difference when the two teams face off in the 2022 Asian Cup on Tuesday.
On Saturday, Afghanistan kicked off the 2022 Asian Cup by beating the Sri Lankan hosts by eight wickets in Dubai.
Mujeeb Ur Rahman and the captain Mohammed the Prophet Fazlhaq took two wickets to complete Farooqui, who selected 3/11 in 3.4 overs and eliminated Sri Lanka 105 in 19.4 overs.
Opening-half Rahmanullah Gurnard (40) and Hazratullah Zazai (37 *) set off fireworks as Afghanistan chased the goal in 10.1 overs.
Shakib Al Hasan will bring a big change to the Bangladeshi team: Rashid Khan
Afghanistan will play for Bangladesh who have recently made substantial changes to the management of the team. Shakib was reconfirmed as T20I captain after Bangladesh lost the ODI and T20I series to Zimbabwe.
Rashid said Shakib will be a key player for Bangladesh, but Afghanistan will stick to his strategy to beat opponents.
,Things will be different in Sharjah tomorrow. Chakib [Al Hasan] The captain is the most experienced player on the team. He makes a huge difference. But let’s think about our process. He is in the minds of the players. We know our roles and our professions of tomorrow. We don’t think about whether we beat them or not, “Rashid said at a press conference on Monday.
We don’t think the opposition is weak or strong: Rashid Khan
Bangladesh and Afghanistan met in 8 games in T20I. Bangladesh have won 3 of these 8 games while Afghanistan has won 5 times.
Despite having a better grip on his opponents in the shorter format, Rashid rejected the concept of a weak team in the game.
,We don’t think the opposition is weak or strong. You can’t say that in cricket. It is something you can never handle the outcome of the game. Any opposition is hard for us. We must take the opposition seriously and be well prepared. If we play in Hong Kong or India tomorrow, our preparation will be the same, “Rashid said.
Bangladesh and Afghanistan will play their second Group B match on Tuesday at Sharjah Cricket Stadium.
