‘Bangladesh abhi bhi zinda hai tournament main’ – Fans react to Bangladesh crushing Afghanistan during Asia Cup 2023

Centuries from two of their top order batters ensured Bangladesh a strong finish during their game against Afghanistan

Bangladesh vs Afghanistan

Naim gave Bangladesh a quick start, but the southpaw left after appearing briefly. However, what came after Hridoy’s dismissal for a duck was an incredible collaboration between Najmul Hossain Shanto as well as Mehidy Hasan Miraz. In the process, each batter recorded their individual centuries and contributed to their team’s intimidating total. 

By contributing with magnificent cameos in the latter stages, Mushfiq and Shakib helped the squad surpass the 330-run threshold. Afghanistan’s bowlers had a bad day because most of them ended up going for a bulk of runs during their spells. They also didn’t do a very good job of fielding which made it a tough day at the office.

Bangladesh amassed a staggering first innings score of 334/5 thanks to centuries from Mehidy Hasan Miraz as well as the prolific batter Shanto. This total required some chasing but Afghanistan batters had some hope as the pitch was going to get better under the lights and if they can manage the scoring rate, the run-chase might just be on.

Afghanistan falter in massive run-chase

In response, Afghanistan lost a vital first wicket in the shape of Gurbaz, and following that wicket, the top-order batsmen, particularly Ibrahim Zadran as well as Rahmat Shah, completely collapsed. Although Ibrahim Zadran had a fun innings, not many of his shots came after he had reached fifty. 

To be honest, Afghanistan did not stay in the game despite Shahidi’s fifty-plus score since they were unable to keep up against the enormous required run rate. At the very end, Rashid Khan was given some restrictions, although they were unlikely to be sufficient. Taskin Ahmed and Shoriful Islam were the key bowlers for the Bangladesh side as they scalped seven of the ten opposition wickets.

Bangladesh got a vital win and are still in the hunt for qualifying for the super 4s which are going to start next week. Afghanistan must win their game against Sri Lanka on Tuesday and by a significant margin, in order to have some hope of advancing into the Super 4s.
