Well, how about that for an eventful couple of days? After Afghanistan’s win in the rain-affected first ODI, Bangladesh captain Tamim Iqbal announced his retirement from international cricket. However, a day later, he reversed his decision after meeting with Bangladesh Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina.

If that doesn’t provide a picture into what Bangladesh cricket can be like, nothing will. The focus of the players will be in question here after a disappointing batting display against Afghanistan’s wily attack in these conditions. Rain is expected to be a factor once again, so efficiency will be the order of the day in what could be another rain-affected match.
