The spinners thrived in the series opener. It’s hard to see how that will change. However, there are light showers forecast for the evening. If Bangladesh do end up pressing the panic button, there’s a good chance they’ll slot in Soumya Sarkar in place of Mosaddek Hossain. The Dehradun surface – slow and low – could mean some match time for off-spinning allrounder Mehidy Hasan. Barring injuries, it is hard to see Afghanistan change a winning combination, even though they have some multi-skilled players like Najeeb Tarakai or Gulbadin Naib in the reserves.
