Scorecard summary
Afghanistan164/6(20 overs)
Bangladesh139/10(19.5 overs)

That's all from us folks, this is Ankur Dhawan, signing off on behalf of Liam Brickhill

Rashid Khan: 40 for 4 is always tough to come back from, but you have to be mentally ready for such challenges, Asghar and Nabi did well to take it deep. Mujeeb has done well in leagues for years, today he was fantastic. Pretty good to have four wins against Bangladesh

Mohammad Nabi is the man of the match: Totally team effort, Bangladesh were brilliant with the ball early, but Asghar and I planned to target last five overs. Shot selection at the top wasn't great. Good for me to concentrate on white ball cricket. In franchise we have different roles and here we have different roles as Mujeeb opens for us, he was brilliant so was the captain

Shakib: I thought first ten overs we were brilliant with the ball, but from there they scored 104 in the last ten, on that sort of a wicket it was hard to digest. The no-ball that allowed Asghar to bat on cost us, it changed momentum. We struggled to take responsibility at the top. Need to do the small things right.

Time for the presentation

The top order threw it away falling to some atrocious strokes, starting with Mushfiqur, who opened only the second time in his international career, and against a much better attack than Zimbabwe's there was no letting up. Mujeeb starred with four, Farheed, Rashid and Gulbadin all chipped in with two apiece to hand Afghanistan their second win which takes them to the top of the table.
