Having been asked to ball first at the Sher-E-Bangla National Stadium in Dhaka, Bangladeshi bowlers had a brilliant start as both the Afghan openers were sent back to the pavilion within 2 overs and the one-down batsman Najeeb Tarakai was also dismissed in the next over.

However, Asghar Afghan and Mohammad Nabi in the fifth wicket stand added 79 runs which helped the batting side to make a strong comeback in the game. Nabi scored 84 runs off just 54 balls smashing 7 sixes and three fours while Asghar played a sensible knock of 40 runs off 37 balls.
