Winning the toss at Mirpur on Sunday, Bangladesh invited Afghanistan to take first lease of the wicket.
A stiff bit of bowling from the Bangladeshis had Afghanistan reeling and they were eventually bowled out for 72 runs in 17.1 overs. Bangladeshi skipper Mushfiwur Rahim faced a minor incident when the last Afghan scalp was picked up, and the ball hit him in the eye.
However, soon after the match, Rahim noted that the injury was not serious. Shakib al Hasan was the pick of the bowlers and ended with figures of 3 for 8.
