AFP[/caption] <p></p> <p></p>Rain delayed the start of the <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/series/bangladesh-tri-nation-series-2019-201190/">tri-nation Twenty20 international tournament</a> final between <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/teams/Bangladesh">Bangladesh</a> and <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/teams/Afghanistan">Afghanistan</a> at the Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium in Dhaka on Tuesday. <p></p> <p></p>The pitch remained under covers due to continuous drizzle, delaying the scheduled start of 6:30 pm (1300 GMT). The trophy will be shared if the match is abandoned. <p></p> <p></p>On Monday, Afghanistan captain <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/players/rashid-khan/news/">Rashid Khan</a> said he is unsure he will play the final against Bangladesh as he is nursing a hamstring injury. <p></p> <p></p><strong><a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/series/bangladesh-tri-nation-series-2019-201190/news/">TRI-NATION SERIES 2019 | LATEST NEWS</a></strong> <p></p> <p></p>Rashid left the field injured against the same opponents in their last match of the league phase in Chittagong on Saturday, before returning to bowl two overs and picking 2-27 in their four-wicket loss. <p></p> <p></p>"I can't say anything right now," Rashid said Monday about his chances of playing in the final. "I had some work on my hamstring yesterday and today. We will decide tomorrow." <p></p> <p></p>Rashid said he would rather not have bowled in the previous game, but the team needed his services. <p></p> <p></p>"The main reason to come back to bowl was that I wanted to know the severity of the injury," he said. <p></p> <p></p>"The physio and coaches didn't want me to bowl. I was OK with the first two overs, but after going for a run it got worse. <p></p> <p></p><a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/series/bangladesh-tri-nation-series-2019-201190/live-scores/bangladesh-vs-afghanistan-final-match-191738-summary.html"><strong>SCORECARD</strong></a> <p></p> <p></p>"I think I shouldn't have bowled, but when the team needs you, you have to be there. We give our all for the country." <p></p> <p></p>Rashid said that if he even had a "10 percent chance" to take to the field, he would give it a shot. <p></p> <p></p>"I saw how Asghar (Afghan) came to play four days after his appendicitis operation in Zimbabwe... I love my country, and I want the country to win, rather than myself." <p></p> <p></p>He said the team had other good bowlers to call on -- such as Mujeeb Ur Rahman, Mohammad Nabi and Sharafuddin Ashraf -- if he was ruled out of the match. <p></p> <p></p>Rashid said also he was confident Afghanistan would beat hosts Bangladesh in the final after winning four of the last five Twenty20 internationals they've played. <p></p> <p></p>"I think the cricket we are playing, especially in T20s, we are confident of winning against any side if we are playing at our best," he added. <p></p> <p></p>"We have the talent and skills. We need to be more calm and cool, relax and enjoy the game." <p></p> <p></p>Bangladesh coach Russell Domingo said they were still looking to hit their best form despite winning three of their four matches in the tournament. <p></p> <p></p>"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," he said.
