Afghanistan are set to lock horns against Bangladesh in a 3-T20I series. All matches will be played at Rajiv Gandhi International Cricket Stadium, Dehradun, India. The live cricket streaming of the match will be available on Rabbithole YouTube channel in India. In Afghanistan, fans will be able to watch the match live on 1 TV. In Bangladesh, fans can witness the match on GTV, BTV and Channel i. Afghanistan’s T20I series comes just week’s before their inaugural Test against India in Bangalore.

Afghanistan from the strife-torn nation has risen rapidly in the shorter formats and expectations are that they will do the same in five-day cricket. Dehradun will become India’s 21st international venue. Though eighth-placed Afghanistan are ahead of Bangladesh in the rankings, there is not much separating the two teams. They have faced each other in the shortest format only once and that was back in the 2014 World T20 where Bangladesh beat Afghanistan by nine wickets.
