Afghanistan’s opener Rahmanullah Garbaz, who is a very good batsman, scored 151 runs against Pakistan in Kandy. Now it was his responsibility to make his team win the match. Because at that time Afghanistan had a mountain of scores in front of them and they needed a good start to win this match.

To begin the 335-chase, Ibrahim Zadran and Rahmanullah Gurbaz arrive in the centre. Bangladesh’s Taskin Ahmed will be in charge of the assault. Only one run was scored by the over. 1/0 (1 over) for AFG

Taskin receives the new ball from Shoriful Islam and delivers the first blow. Gurbaz gets caught LBW for 1(7) after failing to handle an inswinging ball. He makes the decision to review it, but that doesn’t help his cause either. He gets off to a wicket and maiden start. The misfortune of the Afghanistan team here was that they lost the wicket of their good batsman.

A string of fours are smashed by Ibrahim Zadran against Taskin Ahmed. After three overs, AFG has nine runs and is 10/1.

The over is hit with six runs. 67/1 (15 overs) for AFG. As the clouds of danger were hovering over Afghanistan as they were losing their wickets and taking them to a dangerous situation.

He stumbles for a 1(1).

Rashid, though, keeps the audience entertained from the other end when he smashes Hasan Mahmud for a SIX and then adds a FOUR to it. 231-8 (42 overs) for AFG, but now the situation was very bad. 96 runs were required from 48 balls, which was very difficult to do just 2 wickets remaining. The Afghan team had one last hope in Rashid Khan, who is a good all-rounder and a good hitter, but he too was soon preyed upon by the Bengal Tigers.

When Mujeeb Ur Rahman tries to utilize the crease’s depth, he is out caught at the wicket. He loses for a 4/8.Rashid Khan is subsequently eliminated by Taskin Ahmed in the very next ball.
