Asghar Stanikzai and Samiullah Shenwari have put Afghanistan on top with their unbeaten 78-run partnership for the sixth wicket against Bangladesh, in their Asia Cup 2014 match at Fatullah on Saturday.

Afghanistan reached 168 for five after 43 overs as the two batsmen have led the revival against the tournament hosts. Stanikzai was batting on 44, while Shenwari was on 48.

Afghanistan had their hopes pinned on Nawroz Mangal and Asghar Stanikzai, who had steadied them after initial blows against Bangladesh. Mangal batted well during his innings of 24, which was studded with three boundaries.

Stanikzai has been in his usual mood so far, adopting a cautious approach to reach seven not out off 18 balls. On the other hand, Mangal has struck three boundaries to score 23 not out off 28 balls.

Sadiq, who showed aggressive intent as he hit the left-arm Bangladesh spinner for a six, was foxed by a slower one off which he got a leading edge and the bowler took an easy catch. This was after  Shahzad was trapped in front of the wickets by Bangladesh bowler Rubel Hossain for two off eight balls.

Earlier during the toss, Bangladesh have won the toss and elected to bowl first. Captain Mushfiqur Rahim said that the pitch is dry and should be a good chase. Afghanistan captain Mohammad Nabi says they are happy to bat first.
