It was the batting that let Afghanistan down yet again.

Shakib Al Hasan continued with his good form in the tournament and registered yet another half-century. The all-rounder didn’t take too many chances and emphasised on strike rotation. Out of the 51 runs that he scored in this match, only one four was hit. However, he couldn’t take it further as a great delivery from Mujeeb Ur Rahman outfoxed him. That wasn’t it for the No.1 ODI all-rounder. It seemed extremely tough to score off his bowling. He picked up five important wickets and conceded just 29 in his 10 overs.

At one stage of their innings, Bangladesh was possibly looking at around a score of 225 or thereabouts. But Mushfiqur Rahim made a massive difference with a brilliant knock. The wicket-keeper batsman played some glorious shots before he got out in the penultimate over for 83 runs.
