Did not bat:
Fall of wickets: 1-10 (Mohammad Naim, 2.1 ov), 2-25 (Munim Shahriar, 4.6 ov), 3-47 (Shakib Al Hasan, 7.4 ov), 4-80 (Mahmudullah, 10.5 ov), 5-126 (Litton Das, 16.6 ov), 6-127 (Afif Hossain, 17.2 ov), 7-147 (Yasir Ali, 19.2 ov), 8-151 (Mahedi Hasan, 19.5 ov)
2.1 to Mohammad Naim, loud, desperate appeal for leg before from Farooqi, but not given. And Nabi reviews. It is a fair delivery, as he lands an inswinging yorker on off stump. Naim is deep in the crease, with his back leg just about outside off and his front leg out of the way. He has a late jam at the ball, which pitches just outside off while shaping in, as Naim doesn't get any bat involved. So there is no inside edge. Replays show the ball would have clattered on to the lower half of the middle stump. Bangladesh lose their first pretty early, as Farooqi continues from where he had left off in the ODIs. 10/1
16.6 to Liton Das, Slow, length ball around off. Litton went across and tried to whack the slower ball over short fine but found the man at the edge of the circle. The extra ball works out for the bowler. How will the set batter's removal affect the last three?. 126/5
4.6 to Munim Shahriar, a confident appeal for leg before, and given! But Shahriar goes upstairs. Fair delivery as confirmed by replays. It is hinting to turn into the batter while being tossed up, and also while dipping. Shahriar is into a position to sweep really early, with his back leg outside off and front leg on middle and leg. The ball hits his front pad, and there is no bat involved as he plays the sweep. The ball pitches on middle and off, and replays show it would have straightened to hit the top of middle and off. Another one gone, as Afghanistan strike twice inside the powerplay. 25/2
7.4 to Shakib Al Hasan, top edge, and taken by short fine leg! Shakib goes for the sweep to that tossed up ball, which is full and around middle stump. There is just a hint of extra bounce, just enough to interest the bowler, as the ball flies off the top edge before being gobbled on the edge of the circle. Bangladesh lose three, with their run rate not very pleasing either. 47/3
10.5 to Mahmudullah, Full on leg stump, given LBW Mahmudullah does not consider the review after being beaten on the flick. He may have been hurried or surprised with the length, it looked out to the naked eye on first view. 80/4
17.2 to Afif Hossain, Caught at cover Full ball on the stumps, Afif tried to loft it over straight but lost his shape. The leading edge went up and the fielder completes the catch. Both set batters are now gone. 127/6

Fall of wickets: 1-1 (Rahmanullah Gurbaz, 0.4 ov), 2-8 (Hazratullah Zazai, 2.1 ov), 3-8 (Darwish Rasooli, 2.3 ov), 4-20 (Karim Janat, 4.3 ov), 5-57 (Mohammad Nabi, 10.5 ov), 6-62 (Najibullah Zadran, 12.2 ov), 7-66 (Rashid Khan, 13.6 ov), 8-85 (Azmatullah Omarzai, 16.3 ov), 9-90 (Qais Ahmad, 17.2 ov), 10-94 (Mujeeb Ur Rahman, 17.4 ov)
0.4 to Rahmanullah Gurbaz, gives himself room, but finds cover-point! The ball seemed to have flown off his top edge there. Gurbaz backed away early, and Nasum pitched one short and outside off. The ball turned out to be pretty wide of the batter's reach, as he had to swing his arms to try and loft that slash away from his body. Gurbaz goes for a duck, as Bangladesh strike in the first over. 1/1
2.1 to Hazratullah Zazai, another edge from Zazai, and this time he is gone! Zazai runs out of luck. This was a top edge as he tried to slog that full and tossed up ball on off toward midwicket or thereabout, and had cleared his front leg to facilitate that shot. But he ends up playing early, as the ball balloons toward mid-off, who takes it over his head. 8/2
2.3 to Darwish Rasooli, bowled him, Nasum has three! Full ball on off, and that was a bit loopy too. Rasooli is down on his knees early to try and sweep that, but may have been beaten by the hint of turn away from him, especially considering the bowler's angle from around the wicket. Afghanistan three down, and we are barely into the third over of the chase. 8/3
4.3 to Karim Janat, chipped to extra cover! Nasum has four wickets already, and he has more than an over to go. A dream start for the spinner and also Bangladesh. This was a short of a length ball on off, and was turning away. Again Janat gave himself room early to try and loft that over the off side, but didn't get the ideal length this time. It was further out of his reach while turning away, and it was bagged easily. 20/4
16.3 to Azmatullah Omarzai, Sliced to cover It was slow, on a good length around middle. Omarzai gave himself room and tried to slog it over long off but holes out to Mahmudullah. 85/8
13.6 to Rashid Khan, Sliced to deep cover point It was a back of a good length ball outside off. Rashid tried to crash it over cover, his bottom hand came off the bat. The ball went off the splice to the deep fielder. 66/7
17.2 to Qais Ahmad, Skied to the bowler It was slow on a back of a good length, he made room and tried to slog it over mid-wicket. It took the top-edge to the bowler's right. He had time to take it comfortably. 90/9
17.4 to Mujeeb Ur Rahman, Pulled straight to deep mid-wicket It was into the pitch just wide of off, he pulled it and got a decent hit but not enough to clear the fielder who took it over his left shoulder without having to move much. 94/10
10.5 to Mohammad Nabi, Carved to deep cover to bring up Shakib's 400 white ball wickets It was slow on a length and wide. Nabi got down the track and tried to slash it to either wide of the fielder or over the fence but did not get all of it. Ends up holing out to the fielder. 57/5
12.2 to Najibullah Zadran, Bottom edge ballooned straight to deep square leg It was slow, on a back of a good length on leg stump. The batter tried to turn the bat through the flick but it was too early. 62/6
