Bangladesh Batting Performance

Bangladesh lost opener Tanzid Hasan for a duck, caught lbw by Fazalhaq Farooqi, and started their hunt gingerly. Liton Das (54* off 49) scored a patient half-century from one end. But the middle order collapsed as Towhid Hridoy, Soumya Sarkar, and Shakib Al Hasan all sank cheaply. Mahmudullah (6 off 9) contributed momentarily before Rashid Khan took the stage with the ball.

Afghanistan Bowling Performance

The leg-spin of Rashid Khan turned to as Bangladesh’s undoing. For just 23 runs in his four overs, he picked up four vital wickets, including dismissals of seasoned batsmen like Shakib Al Hasan and Mahmudullah. Claiming three wickets for 26 runs in his 3.5 overs, including the crucial wicket of Liton Das in the 17th over, Naveen-ul-Haq gave first-rate assistance.

Bowler Overs Maidens Runs Given Wickets Economy Rate
Naveen-ul-Haq 3.5 0 26 4 6.78
Fazalhaq Farooqi 2 0 15 1 7.50

Rashid Khan (c) 4 0 23 4 5.75
Noor Ahmad 4 0 13 0 3.25
Gulbadin Naib 2 0 5 1 2.50

Sharing seven wickets, Naveen-ul-Haq and Rashid Khan were the standout with the ball for Afghanistan. With a wicket each, Fazalhaq Farooqi and Gulbadin Naib helped to limit Bangladesh’s total to below-par.

Afghanistan’s semi-final prospects are kept alive by an exciting triumph. They will have to win their last game and depend on other outcomes to go their way in getting a spot in the knockout levels.
