Bangladesh vs Afghanistan Prediction
Barring their outings against Sri Lanka and India where they managed to give their opponents a run for their money, Afghanistan have had a very disappointing World Cup so far. They are already out of contention for the race to the semi-finals and will be playing with freedom which might work in their favor to some extent. Bangladesh’s semi-final hopes are hanging by a thread and they will look to come out with all their guns blazing on Monday. The men in green are under enormous pressure, but despite that, we expect them to emerge victorious and keep themselves afloat in the competition.
