Did not bat:
Fall of wickets: 1-62 (Usman Ghani, 8.3 ov), 2-86 (Mohammad Shahzad, 11.6 ov), 3-90 (Najibullah Zadran, 13.2 ov), 4-91 (Mohammad Nabi, 13.5 ov), 5-135 (Samiullah Shinwari, 17.6 ov), 6-160 (Shafiqullah, 19.3 ov), 7-161 (Asghar Afghan, 19.4 ov), 8-161 (Karim Janat, 19.5 ov)
17.6 to Samiullah Shinwari, back of a length outside off, drags the pace back. Shenwari drags a pull from outside off and fails to get elevation as the ball sails flat into the hands of deep midwicket running to his right. They go upstairs to see if he's overstepped. It's just inside, by inches. 135/5
8.3 to Usman Ghani, leg-stump uprooted. That was delivered at pace and Ghani comes down the track and swings big without holding his pose. The ball angles in and gets past his bat before sending leg stump cartwheeling back. 62/1
11.6 to Mohammad Shahzad, Shahzad jumps outside leg and reverse-sweeps the ball straight to Mahmudullah at backward point. Seeing Shahzad move away from the line of the stumps, Shakib tosses it wider outside off. He still reverse-sweeps and finds backward point. So, the dropped catch costs Bangladesh just one run. 86/2
19.3 to Shafiqullah, and now he's been bowled off a full toss. That's a third poor delivery but Abul's lucky it hasn't cost him more. Shafiq gets down and swipes hard but with the ball dipping on him, fails to put bat to it as it crashes into the stumps. 160/6
19.5 to Karim Janat, full outside off, tries to cart it over long-on but the ball goes off the toe-end of the bat and settles into the hands of deep midwicket running back. 161/8
13.2 to Najibullah Zadran, Najib sends a leading edge straight into the lap of short third man. Back of a length and darted in from around the stumps, hint of turn for Mahmudullah. Najib swings across the line even though he is nowhere near the pitch of the ball. Holes out to Jayed. 90/3
13.5 to Mohammad Nabi, Mahmudullah rattles the off stump with a flat dart. Back of a length, skids on, no turn, Nabi plays down the wrong line and misses. Mahmudullah hits. 91/4

Fall of wickets: 1-0 (Tamim Iqbal, 0.1 ov), 2-21 (Shakib Al Hasan, 3.4 ov), 3-64 (Litton Das, 7.6 ov), 4-79 (Mushfiqur Rahim, 10.1 ov), 5-79 (Sabbir Rahman, 10.2 ov), 6-108 (Mosaddek Hossain, 16.3 ov), 7-117 (Abul Hasan, 17.2 ov), 8-118 (Mahmudullah, 17.4 ov), 9-119 (Rubel Hossain, 17.6 ov), 10-122 (Abu Jayed, 18.6 ov)
0.1 to Tamim Iqbal, Appeal straight away as Tamim is struck on the back leg, and it's given! Tamim shaped to sweep this pretty flat one bowled from round the wicket, angling into the stumps. Then he realised it was probably too quick to play that stroke, and then tried to adjust and defend. He ended up playing down the wrong line, playing for the offbreak, when it just kept going with the angle, striking him in front of middle and off. As plumb as can be. What a start.. 0/1
17.2 to Abul Hasan, bowled him! Excellent bowling, saw Abul stepping out and fired in a yorker, right under his bat, to take out leg stump. Looked to jab that back down the ground, but no way he was connecting - it basically pitched right below his bat. 117/7
17.4 to Mahmudullah, short, slanting away from Mahmudullah, and this is all but over. Looks to fetch that from outside off and pull, but he's working against the angle and a bit of extra bounce too. Top-edges it in the air, and it lands in the gully region where three fielders converge - backward point, short third man, and keeper. They basically collide gently into each other when the ball drops into a pair of hands. It turns out the fielder is Usman Ghani - I think he came in from backward point, but I can't be sure. 118/8
17.6 to Rubel Hossain, And he's broken a stump. Slants it in from wide of the crease, a good-length ball that Rubel stays back to and tries to swat with a horizontal bat. Sneaks under and snaps the leg stump in two. 119/9
3.4 to Shakib Al Hasan, gone! For the first time this over Nabi tosses the ball up, temptingly, but he cleverly bowls it wide outside off. The ball dips a touch and turns sharply as Shakib looks to slog that against the turn and over midwicket. Only manages a top edge that balloons up for the keeper to get under after moving towards the leg gully region. 21/2
7.6 to Litton Das, wicket very next ball! And a poor decision from the umpire, it has to be said. Shaped to reverse-slap this over short third man, and missed, but the ball definitely struck his pad outside the line of off stump. Given out after a long, loud appeal, and there's no DRS so Liton has to walk back. 64/3
18.6 to Abu Jayed, low full-toss outside off, and Rashid ends it with a spectacular catch. Dives to his left and grabs it overhead with both hands, after Jayed slaps it hard and flat. This has been excellent from Afghanistan, a great start to a historic tour. 122/10
10.1 to Mushfiqur Rahim, and he strikes first ball! Mushfiqur is the latest batsman to be out reverse-sweeping. It's a quick, flat one on off stump that doesn't turn too much either way. Mushfiqur misses, and it slides past his front leg and knocks back off stump. 79/4
10.2 to Sabbir Rahman, and he's gone first ball! Done in by the wrong'un! Back of a length, and he shuffles across, shaping for the punch down the ground. I don't think he's picked this at all. His head ends up far outside the line as the ball rips back in off the pitch, and he has to play around his pad, in a hurry, to make contact with the ball. He misses, and it strikes his pad in front of middle stump. You won't see too many plumber lbws. 79/5
16.3 to Mosaddek Hossain, goes for the big hit now, sees some flight outside off and goes for the big slog-sweep. Picks the googly okay, but there's a man at long-on and he hits it straight down his throat. Mosaddek goes for 14 off 23 - it's been a real struggle for him today. 108/6
