Bangladesh have dominated Afghanistan in the first game of the ICC World T20 2014 at the Shere Bangla National Stadium, Mirpur. In 10 overs, Afghanistan are 50 for five.
Bangladesh’s start was good as Mohammad Shahzad scooped the first ball high in the air and was caught at mind-on. Mashrafe Mortaza was the wicket-taker and he started off the tournament in style.
Afghanistan seemed to be in a hurry as they sent Gulbadin Naib to smash it around. Naib and Najibullah Tarakai were trying to play too many shots. Naib survived a few times, but also got a few to the boundary.
However, Shakib Al Hasan came on later and he had Naib and Tarakai off consecutive deliveries. And then, Nawroz Mangal was run-out off the first ball he faced. From 31 for 1 in five overs, they slipped to 36 for four.
