Afghanistan will face Bangladesh in the final Super 8 game of the ICC T20 World Cup 2024. England and South Africa have made it to the semifinals but the other two semifinalists are yet to be confirmed thanks to Afghanistan's shock win over Australia. Team India already has one foot in the next round and if they avoid a massive loss at the hands of Australia, they will be through.

Australia and Afghanistan are fighting for one slot and the latter will be hoping for India to beat the 2021 T20 World Cup champions. If that happens, then Afghanistan will only have to beat Bangladesh without any net run-rate scenario in mind. Rashid Khan and his men though won't be worried much about anything and will be focussing on repeating another brilliant show to add two points to their kitty.

Meanwhile, Bangladesh are not mathematically out of it yet but they have an improbable scenario. Moreover, they will be knocked out even if Australia beats India. Coming back to AFG vs BAN clash, the match is set to take place at the Arnos Vale Ground, Kingstown in St Vincent, the venue where Afghanistan defeated Australia.
