New Delhi: After putting up a sensation display against India, Afghanistan will be locking horns against another Asian team Bangladesh in encounter 31 of the ongoing World Cup on Monday. The pitch at The Rose Bowl suited their play and they would love the fact that their next game is also at the same venue. Interestingly, it is been speculated that the game will be played on the same wicket, which means it will be on a slower side. Bangladesh, on the other hand, are coming off a defeat at the hands of Australia in a high-scoring encounter and are in a must-win situation to keep their semi-final hopes alive.The Tigers weren’t up to the mark with the ball in their previous outing and will need to up their game soon. They have now conceded big totals like 386 and 381 bowling first leaving too much to do for the batsmen. Mohammad Saifuddin and Mosaddek Hossain might return to the playing XI if they are fit. As far as Afghanistan are concerned, they might go in unchanged after a brilliant outing against India.With this, News Nation brings to you as what could be the best fantasy XI for the encounter between Bangladesh and Afghanistan:Wicket-Keeper: Mushfiqur RahimBatsmen: Ashgar Afghan, Hashmatullah Shahidi, Mahmudullah, Soumya SarkarAll-Rounder: Mohammad Nabi and Shakib Al HasanBowlers: Rashid Khan, Mujeeb Ur Rahman, Mashrafe Mortaza, Mustafizur RahmanTeams:BangladeshTamim Iqbal, Soumya Sarkar, Shakib Al Hasan, Mushfiqur Rahim (wk), Liton Das, Mahmudullah, Sabbir Rahman, Rubel Hossain, Mohammad Saifuddin, Mehidy Hasan, Mashrafe Mortaza (C), Mustafizur Rahman, Abu Jayed, Rubel Hossain/Mohammad Saifuddin, Mosaddek Hossain, Mohammad Mithun.AfghanistanHazratullah Zazai, Gulbadin Naib (C), Rahmat Shah, Hashmatullah Shahidi, Asghar Afghan, Mohammad Nabi, Najibullah Zadran, Rashid Khan, Ikram Ali Khil (wk), Aftab Alam, Mujeeb ur Rahman, Dawlat Zadran, Hamid Hassan, Noor Ali Zadran, Samiullah Shinwari.

Toussaint gave up four hits and three runs with no walks.Pearson, making his second start, allowed three runs on two hits in five innings.Marcell Ozuna didn’t look happy when a 96 mph fastball from Pearson sailed above his head in the fourth. Ozuna answered by lining a single to left field with an exit velocity of 110 mph.Ozuna moved to second on Pearson’s wild pitch to Nick Markakis, whose grounder to first advanced Ozuna to third. Adam Duvall’s fly ball to left field drove in Ozuna for a 3-1 lead.An apparent roster snafu forced the Toronto Blue Jays to change their pitching plans in the game.The team optioned right-hander Jacob Waguespack to the team’s alternate training site before the game to reach the 28-man roster limit. Manager Charlie Montoyo said before the game Waguespack was recalled when right-hander Trent Thornton was placed on the 10-day injured list.That move apparently was not made official, leaving Waguespack off the active roster. Montoyo tried to bring in Waguespack to open the sixth. Following a chat with home plate umpire Alan Porter, Waguespack left the field without making a pitch and Montoyo instead brought in Rafael Dolis.DOWN TO 28The Braves activated LHP Will Smith from his rehabilitation assignment. Smith, who signed a $39 million, three-year deal, missed the summer camp following a positive test for the coronavirus.OF Scott Schebler was designated for assignment while RHP Chad Sobotka and C Alex Jackson were optioned to the club’s alternate training site as the team reduced its roster to 28 players. The Braves outrighted LHP Chris Rusin, who was designated for assignment on Tuesday, to the alternate site.TRAINER’S ROOMBlue Jays: Thornton has right elbow inflammation and won’t make Saturday’s scheduled start at Boston. Montoyo hasn’t named a fill-in starter for Thornton, who allowed one run in four innings and received no decision in his first start at Washington on July 27. INF Santiago Espinal was optioned to the alternate training site.Braves: Smith was activated instead of pitching in a simulated game at the team’s alternate site, as had been planned. “He was raring to go so shoot, why not give him a real inning?” said manager Brian Snitker. “A guy with his experience, if he tells us he’s good and ready to go then I trust him.”UP NEXTBlue Jays: RHP Tanner Roark (1-0, 1.80) will start as Toronto opens a weekend series at Boston against RHP Ryan Weber (0-2, 11.57).Braves: RHP Kyle Wright (0-1, 7.50), whose role becomes more important following ace starter Mike Soroka’s season-ending injury this week, will face RHP Vince Velasquez (0-0, 12.00) in the opening game of a four-game series at Philadelphia. It is the start of Atlanta’s nine-game road trip.Image credits: AP
