Bangladesh vs Afghanistan
Afghanistan win by 32 runs
Afghanistan register their 17th ODI win, a historic one as they beat a test playing nation on their home soil. They were in tatters at one point of time, at 90 for 5, but Shenwari and Stanikzai revived and charged them to 254.
Over 47.5 - Ban 222/10 (Gazi 2)
Nabi into his last over, starts with a dot and then Bangladesh take a couple of singles. WICKET! Nabi gets the wicket of Rubel, historic win for Afghanistan against a test playing nation. Afghanistan win by 32 runs.
Over 47 - Ban 220/9 (R Hossain 16, Gazi 1)
Shapoor starts his 8th over, a couple of dots and then a single to Rubel. Just a single from the over, the equation becomes more difficult for Bangladesh.
Over 46 - Ban 219/9 (R Hossain 15, Gazi 1)
Mangal and Nabi discuss tactics between overs. Nabi runs in to bowl. Rubel gets a single from the second ball to give strike to the injured Gazi. Gazi takes a single through midwicket. Three singles from the over, 36 needed from 24 balls.
Over 45 - Ban 216/9 (R Hossain 13, Gazi 0)
Gazi walks out to bat. A couple of runs to Rubel, and then he hits Shapoor for four through the off side. Edged and it goes past the keeper for four, lucky runs for Bangladesh. Rubel takes a single and Gazi will have to survive one ball from Shapoor. 39 needed from 30 and one wicket remaining.
Over 44 - Ban 205/9 (R Hossain 2)
Hamid Hassan comes into the attack, six, Rahman hits a six over long-off. Afghanistan need to restrict Bangladesh to 203 to get the bonus point. Hassan is leaving the field and Nabi will complete his over. 60 needed from 40 balls now. Four more, Rahman hits it straight to the fielder who has to come in to take the catch, it goes through his hands for four. Six more, Rahman hits it over long-off for a six. WICKET! Afghanistan celebrate as they get the wicket they are looking for, Nabi bowls him, the off stump is disturbed and Rahman goes for 41. Afghanistan will not get the bonus point but are looking good to win this one.
Over 43 - Ban 189/8 (Rahman 25, R Hossain 2)
A single from the first ball, means Rahman will face Shapoor Zadran. Bangladesh need 69 from 47 balls. Great over from Zadran under the circumstances, four runs from it.
Over 42 - Ban 185/8 (Rahman 22, R Hossain 1)
Ashraf comes into the attack Ziaur Rahman starts off with a four through long-on, he came down the wicket to cover the line of the ball. Four more, pulled away for four more from Rahman. Six, this is a big one, targets the long-off region and clears it convincingly. Four more, this is a big over for Bangladesh, 18 runs from it.
Over 41 - Ban 167/8 (Rahman 4, R Hossain 1)
Sunny walks out to bat and will have to face Shapoor Zadran, the strike bowler. WICKET! Three wickets in three balls, it is pitched down leg and Sunny looks to edge it to fine leg but finds a thin edge and the keeper takes the catch. The scoreboard pressure too much to handle for Bangladesh. Sohag Gazi is injured so it will be interesting to see if he comes out to bat. A couple of singles from the over.
Over 40 - Ban 165/7 (Rahman 3)
Ziaur Rahman comes out to bat, Bangladesh need 94 for 66 balls. Islam takes a single to bring Rahman on strike. Rahman gets two runs to fine leg and gets off the mark. WICKET! Another wicket goes down in a powerplay, Afghanistan definitely on top now. Islam comes down the track and hits it wide of mid-off, Mangal runs and then dives to take a good catch, it was going fast and flat to him. Abdur Razzaq is the new man in. WICKET! Another one falls, Bangladesh in deep, deep trouble. A run out, Razzaq goes for the run but there is a direct hit and replays show he is out, he did not ground his bat even though he had made his ground, immature from an experienced player.
Over 39 - Ban 161/5 (Islam 34)
A single to start the over, Ashraf starts his second. Islam joins the action, hitting a boundary through mid-off, Shapoor dives but can't get a hand to it. A wide down the leg side the keeper gives the batsmen two byes. Another wide, the required rate is over 8, Afghanistan need to keep it tight. WICKET! Good comeback from Ashraf, he picks up the wicket of Nasir Hossain. Big wicket for Ashraf and Afghanistan as Shenwari takes the catch, Hossain goes for 41.

Over 35 - Ban 129/4 (N Hossain 27, Islam 20)
