First one-day international At Mirpur, September 25, 2016 (day/night). Bangladesh won by seven runs. ‡Bangladesh 265 (50 overs) (Tamim Iqbal 80, Mahmudullah 62; Dawlat Zadran 4-73); Afghanistan 258 (50 overs) (Rahmat Shah 71, Hashmatullah Shahidi 72; Taskin Ahmed 4-59). MoM: Shakib Al Hasan. ODI debut: Naveen-ul-Haq (Afghanistan).
Afghanistan seemed to be cruising when they added 143 for the third wicket, to leave themselves needing 77 from the last ten. But Rahmat Shah charged at Shakib Al Hasan, took a wild swipe and was stumped; it was his 208th one-day international wicket, the most by a Bangladeshi, surpassing Abdur Razzak, another left-arm spinner. Shakib finished with 2-26, to back up a feisty 48. His control had given Bangladesh a chance, and Taskin Ahmed grabbed it. This was his first game after a ban for an illegal action, and he looked rusty: his first six overs brought 0-49. But he was trusted at the death, found his yorkers, and took four wickets in nine balls to clinch the match. Earlier, Bangladesh lost Soumya Sarkar in the first over, but Tamim Iqbal - dropped by Hashmatullah Shahidi at backward point on 30 - composed a restrained 80. Bangladesh reached 203-3, before seven fell for 62. Afghanistan had the momentum, but not the composure. In the 3,780th one-day international, this was the first instance of both teams being dismissed from the last ball of their allotted overs.
