Captain Shakib Al Hasan Leads Bangladesh in ICC Men’s World Cup Opener Against Afghanistan

Bangladesh’s skipper, Shakib Al Hasan, was seen in action during a practice session before their 2023 ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup One-Day International (ODI) match against Afghanistan. The exciting showdown is set to take place at the Himachal Pradesh Cricket Association Stadium in Dharamsala on October 7, 2023.

This tournament could mark the final World Cup appearance for Bangladesh’s cricket stalwarts Shakib Al Hasan, Mushfiqur Rahim, and Mahmudullah.

Bangladesh had a successful warm-up match against Sri Lanka in Guwahati, securing a convincing victory. However, they faced a four-wicket defeat (DLS method) at the same venue against defending champions England.

On the other hand, Afghanistan also triumphed over Sri Lanka using the DLS method in their second warm-up game in Guwahati. Unfortunately, their first game against South Africa in Thiruvananthapuram was abandoned due to persistent rain.

In the 2023 Asia Cup, Afghanistan faced losses against Bangladesh and Sri Lanka in the group stage, leading to their elimination from the tournament.
