Afghanistan vs Bangladesh Live Cricket Score - 1st T20 Match - Summary

End of Over : 19.0 BAN: 122/10

That is it from this game, a clinical performance by Afghanistan while it was a poor effort from Bangladesh overall. Will the hosts seal the deal in the next game? or will we see a fightback from the visitors? For all the answers, join us back on 5th June 2000 Local (14:30 GMT)... Adios!

18.6 W

OUT! That is that! AFGHANISTAN WIN BY 45 RUNS and they take a 1-0 lead in the series. A low full outside off and the batsman mistimes the drive to covers. Rashid flies to his left and takes a spectacular catch to end the proceedings.

18.5 0

Slipping it down the leg side, Jayed looks to glance that one but misses it and the ball brushes his pads and rolls to the keeper.

18.4 0

Slower bumper from Janat on middle and leg, Jayed stays low and ducks under it as he lets it through to the keeper.

18.3 1

High full toss from Karim, the batsman slaps it to long on for a single. No signal from the umpire, the bowler should consider himself lucky to get away with that one.

18.2 1

Fullish delivery on the off stump line, Islam stays back and flicks it on the leg side towards the mid-wicket region.

18.1 1

It's been driven superbly through the covers. The batsmen have run through for a single.

End of Over : 18 6 Runs BAN: 120/9
17.6 W

OUT! BANG! The leg stump is broken in half. Lethal stuff! The pace and accuracy of the lanky pacer has made the life of the tourists extremely difficult. He goes full and bowls it in the line of the stumps. The batsman wants to hit the ball out of the stadium but misses it to find the furniture behind him disturbed. It's almost done and dusted in Dehradun and Afghanistan are advancing towards a clinical win.

17.5 1

The batsman flicks it away with a wristy shot. The batsmen have run through for a single.

17.4 W

OUT! The bouncer does the trick. Short, fast and angling away from Mahmudullah, who goes for a big swing. The ball hits the higher part of his bat and goes up in the air towards short fine leg. Three fielders are rushing in but Ghani calls for it and settles under it safely. He had a small collision with Shahzad but held his nerve.

17.3 1

Touch too straight from Zadran and the new batsman tucks it behind square for a single.

17.2 W

OUT! Bowled 'em! Another one bites the dust. Fullish delivery, angling in sharply. Hasan backs away, uses his feet but ends up yorking himself up. Ends up getting beaten for pace and the ball crashes into the leg stump. They need quick runs and they need someone to go for it but in the process, they have lost too many wickets.

17.1 4

FOUR! Bumper to start the over, angling into the body and the batsman goes for the pull but gets a top edge over the keeper to find the fence.
