Afghanistan 254 for 6 (Stanikzai 90*, Shenwari 81) beat Bangladesh 222 (Mominul 50, Nabi 3-44, Hassan 2-26) by 32 runs…

The indomitable spirit that has characterised Afghanistan’s sharp rise in world cricket shone brightly in Fatullah. Playing in the Asia Cup for the first time, Afghanistan not only defeated Bangladesh, the Test-playing hosts, they almost managed to sneak out a bonus point too. Bangladesh, who took 28 matches to register their first-win against a major side, were left embarrassed by a younger cricketing nation playing only its fourth match against a major team.

The foundation of the historic win was laid by a stunning 164-run stand for the sixth wicket between Asghar Stanikzai and Samiullah Shenwari that lifted Afghanistan from 90 for 5 in the 27th over to a competitive 254. The Afghanistan bowlers then ensured they maintained the intensity and produced an all-round bowling performance to shock the hosts.

Stanikzai and Shenwari had come together at a stage when Bangladesh spinners were busy closing all escape doors, but they went through a careful rebuilding phase till the 40th over, before exploding in the last 10 to amass 107 runs – easily their best performance in the final overs. The stand was broken on the penultimate delivery of the innings when Shenwari was run-out for 81, but Stanikzai stayed unbeaten on 90 off 103 balls. Bangladesh, who had a firm grip on the proceedings for 80% of the innings, fell apart in the last 20%.

Rubel Hossain was smashed for 40 in his last four overs, Abdur Razzak and Arafat Sunny were whipped for 25 and 19 in their last two and Ziaur Rahman was taken for 16 as Stanikzai and Shenwari hit 12 fours and four sixes in the last 10 overs, beating the 88 they scored against Scotland in 2009.

    congrats afghanistan on a great win…. great show of unity and strength. Shinwari and Stanikzai are brave batsmen, played so bravely under pressure, such an aggression while being under pressure shows a lot of character for the young team….

        Behen chood

        • paklover says:

          Look here now. There are many pakhton players in pak team from afghani backgrounds. But they are pakistani and they make us proud players like junaid khan. But those who live in pakistan and are from afghanistan, later go in to other countrys and say bad things about pakistan those people are the real behen chood and haramzades. The pakistani pathan are good and helpful people. But the majority of afghanis are scoundrels who take from pakistan and then insult them.

      • Farid Ahmad says:

        Pakistan is a Factory of terrorist-production.

      • abdulbasit says:

        No NO NO pakhtoons are not terorrists. but just they can not to accept bondage as others .
