That's all we have from this match. The Hong Kong against Nepal match will be coming up in some time. Join us back for that.
Shakib Al Hasan was named the Man of the Match for his excellent bowling figures. He says that the wicket helped spinners a lot and he hopes for such wickets for the matches ahead as well.
Emphatic victory for Bangladesh while their opponents, Afghanistan were nothing less than below average. Firstly, Bangladesh made use of some awful batting shots from Afghanistan to bowl them out for 72. Their spin trio were extremely good with the ball gripping and turning a mile. 72 was a cakewalk but it was marred with on-field confrontations. Some of the Afghanistani players need to understand the art of taking a loss at their chins as some of the players were overdoing with their sledging. Anamul Haque made sure not to lose his wicket and scored a fine 44.

SIX! BANGLADESH BEAT AFGHANISTAN BY 9 WICKETS! They avenge their defeat to Afghanistan in the Asia Cup with the most comprehensive of victories. A flighted delivery, Haque charges out and sends it soaring over the long on fence. He is pumped up and the players shake hands.
Sharp turn on that short delivery and Anamul couldn't get bat on that.

Flighted up, Haque pushes it straight back after coming down the ground. Shenwari remains smart enough to notice that and hurls a direct hit at the striker's end. They go upstairs and replays show that Haque got back in well.
