Wickets lost by Afghanistan in the first three overs. They have never lost as many.

The Slow Crawl

67

Bangladesh's score after 20 overs, their second-lowest against a non-Test nation (since 2001)

Associate - 1, Test nation - 0

1

Number of times that Afghanistan have played Bangladesh in an ODI. Afghanistan won that encounter (Asia Cup, 2014)

  • Soumya Sarkar's shot in the dark

    The long-lasting memory of a young batsman we have never seen before is of that <i>one</i> brilliant shot announcing his arrival

  • Batting reshuffle a needless complication

    The Bangladesh batsmen are already faced with the challenge of dealing with alien conditions. The last thing the team needs is an unwarranted rejig in the batting order

  • Umpiring confusion reigns again

    It took only seven balls for Samiullah Shenwari's delight at Afghanistan's first appearance in a World Cup to descend into personal disaster as the focus turned once again onto umpiring confusion

  • Bangladesh evade the banana peel

    Afghanistan were the bogey team and Bangladesh as the Full Member were expected to defeat them. Mushfiqur Rahim, Shakib Al Hasan and Mashrafe Mortaza did just that

  • This is how good the World Cup could be

    Hamid's headband, Shapoor's distance sprint to the wicket, and Mirwais' shining scalp provided examples of the glories of an inclusive global tournament
