Bangladesh beat Afghanistan by 62 runs
That ends game number 31. Bangladesh keep their hopes of a semi-final alive while Afghanistan are fighting hard to avoid the wooden spoon. Tuesday sees another eagerly awaited clash of this World Cup - not the Ashes exactly but a contest of a similar genre. It is Australia against England and it will be exciting to see who becomes the lord of Lord's. Join us on June 25, 2019, at 10.30 am local (0930 GMT). ADIOS! TAKE CARE!
Victorious Bangladesh captain, Mashrafe Mortaza, smiles when asked about the crowd. Thanks them from the bottom of his heart. Is not short of words when asked to praise Shakib calling him as one of the most important players in the team. On Rahim-Shakib's partnership, Mash says that it was short but very important. Praises Tamim and Mahmudullah for their contributions. On the latter's injury, Mashrafe says that there is a week to go before their next match against India, so Mahmudullah will be assessed gradually. On their upcoming games against India and Pakistan, Mortaza says that Bangladesh will give their best and hope for the best.
Afghanistan captain, Gulbadin Naib, says that the India match was a close one but in this one, blames the poor quality of fielding. Adds that they gave away 30-40 runs extra but does not want to take any credit from Bangladesh's batting or Shakib. On Najibullah batting so low down the order, Naib deflects the question, stating that he is an experienced player and can hit the ball long and blames Ikram Ali Khil for not rotating the strike while batting above him. On Afghanistan's journey so far, Gulbadin says that the team has been suffering from injuries which is why they have not been able to perform well consistently.
SHAKIB AL HASAN HAS BEEN NAMED THE MAN OF THE MATCH. Shakib says that the support for Bangladesh has been great throughout this World Cup as the crowd has been right behind them. On asked what gave him more happiness - 50 or 5-fer, Al Hasan mentions the five wickets made him more happy as it was important but he had to work hard for his half ton too. States Rahim played really well and without him the score would not have been possible. Further adds Tamim's and Mosaddek's contributions were also important. Tells they had to bat well as Afghanistan have got really good spinners. On his good batting form, Shakib says that he does not know how he is playing so well, but he worked hard and was prepared for it and it is paying off. Ends by saying he wants the form to continue in the matches ahead and they have big games coming up, against India and Pakistan.
7th loss in a row for Afghanistan. They equal the record set by Zimbabwe in 1992, becoming the second team to lose 7 straight matches in a single edition of the World Cup. They started nicely with the ball but then took the foot off the hook. Their batting has never come good in this tournament and it did not come good here either. It is sad to see this performance because after the India game, one would have expected a better show than this one. Please stay tuned for the presentation...
Shakib's day. Mushfiqur's day. Bangladesh's day. They get the 2 points they desperately were searching for. The Tigers move to 5th spot, with 7 points in as many games. The day began with Shakib and Rahim keeping Afghanistan at bay with a 61-run stand, with Rahim capping the innings off with a fine 83. And then with the ball, the number 1 all-rounder in the world in this format strut his stuff, taking a 5-fer. Only the second player ever, to score a fifty and take a 5-fer in the same World Cup game. These are also his best ODI figures.
Comprehensive. Victory by 62 runs. Bangladesh have defeated Afghanistan in a clinical fashion and have re-staked their claim for the semi-final spot. Final 4 decided, you say? Think again.

Shakib Al Hasan To Najibullah Zadran OUT!
OUT! STUMPED! Any guesses who provides the breakthrough when Bangladesh needed one? There could be only one man at the moment, Shakib Al Hasan. What can this guy not do right now? Brilliant with the bat and now a match-winning spell. He gets his fifer. His second in ODIs. Clever bowling! He sees Zadran come down the track and fires it outside off. NZ swings but is beaten by pace. Rahim makes no mistake behind. A good partnership comes to an end, this stand surely got Bangladesh worried a little.

Mehedi Hasan To Samiullah Shinwari OUT!
OUT! Ikram is short! Poor, poor running by him. This is a big mistake. He has literally thrown away a chance to spend some time out in the middle. Hasan bowls this one on middle, Shinwari looks to flick but misses to get hit on the pads. The bowler is appealing as the ball rolls on the leg side. The umpire shakes his head and Ikram in the meantime sets off for a run. Shinwari is not interested. Das picks the ball up from mid-wicket, turns and then fires it at the bowler's end. It looks like Ikram lazily tries to get in. The ball hits the stumps and an appeal follows. The umpire takes it upstairs. Replays roll in and they show that Ikram wasn't lazy, he was avoiding the throw and hence, he does not ground his bat properly which means he is short.
An appeal for a run out has been taken upstairs. Ikram looked like he did not ground his bat. This could be close.
Mehedi Hasan is back!
DRINKS! It is becoming tough for Afghanistan and they would want both Samiullah Shinwari and Ikram Ali Khil to stay till the end. The required rate is creeping up and they need many big overs. On the other hand, Bangladesh need just 5 wickets to win the match. They have kept it very tight till now. Afghanistan need 131 runs in 90 balls to win the match. Also, this is an extended Drinks Break as the Zing bails are not working and the umpires are waiting for the other ones to come out.

Shakib Al Hasan To Asghar Afghan OUT!
OUT! Afghan holes out! He needed to go for it, he went against the turn and picks the fielder out. Shakib has his fourth. He tosses it up outside off. Afghan looks to play the slog sweep. He does not hit it that well and it goes down the throat of Sabbir Rahman, the sub at deep mid-wicket. Half the side is back in the hut for Afghanistan and chasing this total now seems very difficult. 146 needed in 106.

OUT! TIMBER! Nabi is out of here for a duck! Shakib gets two in three balls. Afghanistan in huge trouble now. The slider does the trick this time. Shakib bowls it from wide of the crease and this starts from outside off, it drifts back in. Nabi plays outside the line, the ball kisses the inside edge and deflects onto the stumps.

Shakib Al Hasan To Gulbadin Naib OUT!
OUT! No fifty for Gulbadin! Excellent catch, even more impressive field placement! Also, Shakib bowls to that plan. He has a short cover and a normal cover in place. He gives it extra flight tempting the batsman to drive. Naib does get tempted, he looks to drive but does not keep it down. Das at short cover is low and ready for it and then takes a sharp chance. Naib probably falls at the wrong time for Afghanistan. He was set and they needed him to step on the gas, he was looking to do so but falls before he could make an impact. Bangladesh continue to tighten their grip on the game.

Mosaddek Hossain To Hashmatullah Shahidi OUT!
OUT! STUMPED! Mosaddek gets the second wicket for Bangladesh. Nicely bowled. Flighted outside off, Hashmatullah lunges out to drive but the ball pitches and spins away. Beats the outside edge and Rahim collects nicely, whipping the bails off. It is referred upstairs and replays show that Shahidi has not dragged his foot back in. This does not help Afghanistan. Both batsmen were trying to absorb the pressure but then one of those has not converted his start. 184 more needed from 175 balls.
Stumping appeal! Is that gone? Our colleague Louis is certain the batsman is a goner. It has been referred upstairs and just one replay should be enough. The foot has not come back in.

RUN OUT MISSED! Mosaddek is not happy. Mortaza is not happy either. Sloppy from Liton Das. Shahidi pushes this towards covers and calls for a single. However, he then changes his mind. Naib has to change track, take a U-turn and when he does so, looks to be gone for all money. Liton Das gets to the ball and returns a wild throw, well away from the stumps, which means Mosaddek has to reach out to his right, collect, turn around and then whip the bails. Naib has dived in by that time. A straighter throw would have had Gulbadin.

Naib may be suffering from cramps! The physio is out and some stretching is going on. In the meantime, the umpires have called for DRINKS! Afghanistan are going at a steady rate but would want to step up. They have lost just one wicket and would want this partnership going. On the other hand, Bangladesh have kept it tight and would want quick wickets to put pressure on Afghanistan. Afghanistan need 203 runs in 204 balls to win the match.

A run out chance goes abegging! Fuller and on middle, this is worked towards mid on. Shahidi sets off but Naib is ball watching. He then realizes his partner wants a run and sets off. Mashrafe gets to the ball quickly but can't keep his balance. Had he done so, it could have been close.

Shakib Al Hasan To Rahmat Shah OUT!
OUT! In the air... caught! Shakib strikes straightaway and provides the much-needed breakthrough. This is slightly shorter but quicker. Rahmat goes back and looks to pull but the ball hurries onto him. A top edge is induced which lobs towards mid on. Tamim takes a good catch running backwards. Shah walks back after getting off to a start. This is a good wicket as Rahmat is one of Afghanistan's best batters. 214 needed in 235 balls.

The fielder from square leg runs in, picks the ball up and hits bull's eye at the non-striker's end. They appeal. The umpire first signals it as a wide and then takes it up. Replays roll in and they show Shah is fine.
A direct hit and the umpire has taken it upstairs. No Bangladesh player seems excited.
