Over 13.3: WICKET! The threatening partnership has been broken. And it’s Gulbadin Naib who has made the breakthrough for Afghanistan by having Mahmudullah caught for 44 off 39. Score 90/5, chasing 165

Over 11: Just the kind of over Bangladesh needed at the moment – Karim Janat leaks 15 runs from his third over. Is this the over that shifts momentum? Score 74/4, chasing 165

Over 1.5: WICKET! Bangladesh have also lost their openers cheaply! Rahim tries to be cheeky and pays the price for it. The off stump is disturbed and Fareed lets out a big roar in delight. A length ball landing around off, Rahim shuffles across the stumps to attempt for a paddle scoop but fails to middle his shot. It probably takes some part of his pads before going onto the stumps. 154 runs needed in 109 balls! Score 11/2

Over 0.2: WICKET! Like Afghanistan, Bangladesh have also lost a wicket in the very first over. Early blow to Bangladesh and the crowd has gone quiet. A knuckle ball by Mujeeb around off, it lands full and straightens a bit. Das expects it to come into him and hence opts for a shot across the line over the leg side. But it catches the leading half of his bat and goes up in the air. Najeeb Tarakai is under that catch at covers. Score 0/1

Bangladesh openers Liton Das and Mushfiqur Rahim are out in the middle

Over 14.2: HUNDRED up for Afghanistan – Asghar Afghan brings up the three figures for his team with a six off Taijul Islam.

Over 8.2: FIFTY up for Afghanistan

Over 2.6: WICKET! Mohammad Saifuddin removes Najeeb Tarakai. Wicket number 3 goes down! Tarakai hits a biggie and falls on the next ball attempting almost a similar shot. Saifuddin serves a shortish ball on off and Najeeb goes back to power his pull shot over the fence. But he fails to pack it with enough power and Sabbir takes a simple catch at deep square leg. Score 19/3

Over 1.4: WICKET! Both Afghan openers back in the dug-out. Shakib bowls a flighted full ball on middle, Zazai kneels to slog it across the line but fails to middle his shot properly. It skies up in the air and Liton at deep mid-wicket catches it with his fingers pointing up. Sorry start for Afghanistan as both their openers are dismissed cheaply. Score 10/2

Over 0.1: WICKET! Mohammad Saifuddin to Rahmanullah Gurbaz. out, OUT! Off stump goes for an early walk! What a splendid delivery first up by Saifuddin. He hurls in a length ball in the line of the stumps and gets it to nip away a shade. Gurbaz is on the back foot attempting to work it around but is beaten by the movement. The off stump goes cartwheeling and the Bangla crowd lets out a big roar. Perfect start! Score 0/1
