3 Players To Watch In BAN VS AFG CWC Match 3
1) Rashid Khan
One of, if not the best spinner in the world, Rashid Khan has been the flagbearer of Afghan cricket since his teens. The leg-spinning all-rounder takes wickets consistently and has one of the best bowling economies in international cricket.
Rashid Khan’s batting too has come a long way in the past couple of years. A solid no.7 batter, Khan has the ability to smack the ball all over the park. His batting can pull Afghanistan out of dire situations.
An IPL veteran at this point, Rashid can lay the claim of being one of the best of all time in the league. In the 109 matches he has played in the T20 franchise tournament, he has taken a staggering 139 wickets. He has also been batting with a strike rate of over 200 for the last two years in the league.

2) Shakib Al Hasan
No.1 ranked ODI all-rounder in the world, Shakib Al Hasan has constantly been the best all-rounder in the world for over a decade. Counting the Bangladeshi captain’s stats and performances is futile. The 36-year-old is well and truly one of the greatest cricketers of the modern era.
Having seen the steady rise of Bangladeshi cricket over the years first-hand, Hasan now has the chance to write the greatest chapter in his country’s cricket by leading them to the knockouts of the 2023 ICC Cricket World Cup.
When he was part of the side, Bangladesh reached multiple Asia Cup finals and even reached the quarter-final of the 2015 World Cup. Shakib Al Hasan also had a fantastic 2019 World Cup, where he scored 606 runs in eight matches with an average of 86.57, and also took 11 wickets.
3) Naveen Ul Haq
The 24-year-old pacer will represent Afghanistan possibly for the last time in this World Cup, as he has announced his retirement following the conclusion of the tournament. One of the brightest non-spin bowling prospects Afghanistan has ever produced.
He has played only seven ODIs and none since 2021. He has, however, taken 14 wickets in those 7 matches. T20Is are where he has showcased more for Afghanistan. In the 27 matches he has played in the shortest format, he has taken 34 wickets with an average of just over 20.
