Bangladesh: Bangladesh will most likely be without the services of their batting all rounder, Aminul Islam. Aminul, on debut, was hit on his finger by a forceful shot from Hamilton Masakadza. While he misses out, the head coach also reckoned that they will add another pace option to their 12-man squad, factoring in that the pacers caused the Afghanistan top order trouble. In which case, Rubel Hossain may be named.
Afghanistan: Rashid Khan is in doubt for the summit clash. In case he misses out, Sharafuddin Ashraf may play his first game of the series.
What they said:
"We haven't played the perfect game of cricket yet. We have been good in certain areas and average in certain areas. We are still trying to find the perfect game." - Russell Domingo, Bangladesh's head coach.
"We won two and lost two in the league phase. We have to take positives from it. Those things are gone. We have to focus on the final tomorrow." - Rashid Khan, Afghanistan's skipper.
