Mehidy dismissed Hashmatullah Shahidi for 18(38), while Mustafizur Rahman dismissed Gurbaz for 47(62) in the next over. Afghanistan lost two more wickets quickly, with Shakib removing Najibullah Zadran for 5(13) and Taskin Ahmed bowling Mohammad Nabi for 6 off 12 balls. The tail couldn’t do much either, as two late strikes by Azmatullah Omarzai propelled Afghanistan to victory.

Miraz completed with 57 off 73 balls, while Shanto was unbeaten on 59.

Afghanistan batted first on a good pitch but were bowled out for 156 in 37.2 overs due to a slew of bad shots.

The Tigers were 27-2 in response, but a 97-run partnership between Mehidy Hasan and Najmul Hossain Shanto allowed them to reach their target with 15.2 overs to spare.

Mehidy Hasan Miraj is eventually eliminated for 57(73) after getting three times lucky earlier in the run chase. Rahmat Shah smashes a one-handed stunner at mid-off to give Naveen ul Haq the wicket. Shakib al Hasan joins the action as the Tigers

Afghanistan suddenly had an opportunity to get back into the game. It was their own fault that they couldn’t. When the score was 38, Najibullah sent Mehidy down at backward point off Farooqi. Mujeeb dropped Mehidy at deep third off Naveen-ul-Haq shortly after, giving him another life. At the time of both reprieves, he was on 16 and 23, respectively.

After that, Mehidy and Shanto mostly played percentage cricket, content with one and twos. Nonetheless, Mehidy reached his half-century in 58 balls. Bangladesh were only 33 runs away from the objective when Afghanistan broke the 97-run partnership, just enough for Shanto to reach his half-century.
