Though Chandika Hathurusingha, the head coach of Bangladesh, admitted the difficult task of taking on the Afghanistan bowling assault, she also noted that the Tigers’ previous experience against the Afghans would be beneficial.

In their second and last Asia Cup group-stage match, Bangladesh takes on Afghanistan in Lahore on Sunday. Winning this match is essential for Bangladesh to advance to the next round.

The Tigers’ Asia Cup campaign got off to a disastrous start on Thursday as they lost to Sri Lanka by five wickets.

Because of what transpired in the last game versus Sri Lanka, this one is crucial. The game is a must-win, as we are aware. Although we didn’t perform to our full ability or adequately represent ourselves in the last game, Hathurusingha assured the press on Saturday that “we are confident that we will bring our A-game against Afghanistan tomorrow.”

Hathurusingha, who singled out two of the spinners, Rashid Khan and Mujeeb Ur Rahman, as being of the highest caliber, said that the Afghanistan bowling attack was among the greatest in the world.

“One of the greatest bowling attacks in the world comes from Afghanistan. Although it’s undoubtedly difficult, our players have had some success when we’ve faced them lately. Thus, everything is dependent on your performance that day. We are well aware of the difficulties we must overcome.

“They have one of the strongest bowling assaults in the world of cricket, particularly in limited overs, as I have said before. They had two excellent seamers and two world-class spinners. We just faced them in T20Is and ODIs, so we are fully aware of their danger,” he said.
