Afghanistan would still be kicking themselves on how they allowed Bangladesh to recover from 45 for 6 to chase down their target of 216.

Defending a measly 215, the Afghan bowling unit was led by ace spinner Rashid Khan but the star of the show was left-arm pacer Fazalhaq Farooqi, who almost singlehandedly wrecked Bangladesh top order before a heroic seventh-wicket stand between Afif Hossain and Mehidy Hasan Miraz saved the game for the hosts.

Earlier, Najibullah Zadran was the top scorer for the Afghan side as his 67 supplemented by modest contributions from elsewhere against a suffocating Bangladesh bowling attack.

The Afghans lost the opener but showed that they have enough game to keep this series competitive.


Bangladesh will have to thank two men from saving them from what looked like a certain defeat at one point.

Hossain and Miraz got together when the score was 45 for 6 and the match was all but over. Hossain scored 93 off 115 and Miraz 81 of 120 as neither batsman got out and made sure that the target was reached with more than an over to spare.

Earlier, an even bowling performance from all of Tigers’ bowlers had restricted Afghanistan to just 215 – a total they were supposed to get to with ease but Afghan pacer Farooqi (4 for 54) had other ideas.

The Tigers are 1-0 but will be fully aware that Hossain and Miraz’s hero acts actually hid the rest of the team’s collective failure.

Tipster’s Angle

Tip: Afghanistan to win @ 2.58

We saw a lot of game in Afghanistan in the first ODI to not back them in the second ODI. Had luck been on their side, it would have been them up 1-0 instead of trailing by that same margin. At underdog odds, we’d take them over the pricier home side. The odds for this play have been sourced from Dafabet.

Tip: Mushfiqur Rahim to score more than 24.5 runs @ 1.87

Bangladesh batting has three pillars namely Tamim Iqbal, Shakib Al Hasan and Mushfiqur Rahim. All three pillars collapsed in the opening ODI. For the second ODI, the one with the lowers spread is Rahim, who has also been a very consistent scorer over the past few years. With there being plenty of overs for everyone to bat, we think Rahim would cover the spread when he gets his turn, even if it’s late in the innings. The odds for this play have been sourced from Parimatch.


Afghanistan showed they have game but can they show us they also have the results in them? We’ll find this out tomorrow morning.
