Afghanistan v Bangladesh: How to watch, TV channel, start time, head-to-head stats and team news

Afghanistan and Bangladesh both remain in the hunt to make it through to the semi-finals of the T20 World Cup ahead of their crunch Super 8 clash in St. Vincent.

After claiming their shock 21-run victory over Australia last time out, Afghanistan will make it through to the last four if they beat Bangladesh and the Aussies suffer defeat to India.

Bangladesh's hopes of progress are a lot thinner after they lost their opening two games. They need to win, hope Australia lose and there is also a huge net run rate swing in their favour.

Afghanistan v Bangladesh stats and head-to-head record (H2H)

These two sides have met on 11 previous occasions in T20Is and it is Afghanistan that hold the narrow advantage with six wins to Bangladesh's five.

The Tigers did win the only previous T20 World Cup meeting between the sides, however, claiming a nine-wicket success during the first stage of the 2014 competition.

Bangladesh also claimed a 2-0 series success the last time the two teams met in the shortest form of the game, securing both successes - by six wickets and two wickets - on home soil in Sylhet last summer.

Afghanistan boast both the highest run scorer and the player that has taken the most wickets at this year's T20 World Cup within their squad, with Rahmanullah Gurbaz having accumulated 238 runs and Fazalhaq Farooqi 15 wickets.
