Bangladesh and Afghanistan will meet in their first match of the fast-approaching 2023 ODI World Cup. They get the chance to have a go at each other in what looks to be an evenly-matched three-match series.

The Tigers, who have been superb in ODI cricket in recent years, will be wanting to hit their strides. Many tip them as a dark horse for this year’s World Cup, but how they prepare – including the form of key players and a settled lineup – will be key.

For Afghanistan, there will be a sense of righting the wrongs of the third-highest Test defeat in history last month. Sure, the Afghans fielded an inexperienced team, but victory in the opening ODI will taste sweeter. In fact, they won their last ODI in Bangladesh – one of three victories in the country – so they know how to get the job done.
