Bangladesh vs Afghanistan Live Score, Asia Cup 2023: AFG inflict double blow after strong start by BAN openers
Asia Cup 2023: Bangladesh vs. Afghanistan live score In the crucial match against Afghanistan on Sunday, Bangladesh won the toss and chose to bat first, and the opening combination of Mohammad Naim and Mehidy Hasan Miraz gave them a good start.
Before Mujeeb Ur Rahman and Gulbadin Naib struck quickly after, the two put up 60 runs for the first wicket, which allowed Afghanistan to tie the score.
For 28(32), Naim was removed from the game, and Towhid Hridoy was out for a 2-ball duck. Bangladesh's batting performance was below average in their opening tournament match against Sri Lanka, as they were only able to generate 164 runs after choosing to bat.
A strong 89 off 122 balls from Najmul Hossain Shanto made him the lone warrior, but the Bangladeshi batting order as a whole was unable to muster any resistance.
Conversely, Afghanistan enters the tournament fresh off a 0–3 ODI series defeat to Pakistan. However, they would find solace in the knowledge that in June and July of this year, they had defeated Bangladesh 2-1 in a three-match ODI series.
