Time: 09:30 a.m. IST
Bangladesh host Afghanistan for the only Test match of the series in Chattogram after losing a three-match Test series against New Zealand in March. However, Bangladesh have won their last three Tests at home and doesn't seem to change this time around.
While, on the other hand, Afghanistan all set to play their third Test match where they lost their first Test against India while they won its second one against Ireland. Meanwhile, the Afghan side will be led by a new skipper Rashid Khan and has got the biggest strength in the bowling department.
The weather forecast for the match is terrible with a lot of rain predicted every day of the Test.
The pitch condition of this ground is dry with little grass on it as its supports turn from day one. While batting first will have a huge advantage as we can expect the result on day three or four, weather permitting.
No latest injuries reported by both teams.
Probable Playing XI:
The current Bangladesh side looks well-settled and has a lot more experienced players in their lineup as Tamim Iqbal is not available for this Test match Shadman Islam is expected to open while the experienced players like Shakib Al Hasan, Mahmudullah, and Mushfiqur Rahim should control the middle-order. While, the spinner Mehidy Hasan
