Man of the match, Rashid Khan, thanks Russel Arnold who wishes him for his birthday today. Rashid says he is happy to contribute in all three departments - batting bowling and fielding. Adds further that he wishes to continue with this good form of his. States that during their batting they were focusing on every delivery and their main focus was to take the innings till the end and then do their best to put up a big total. Also says that they are working hard on their fielding and adds that by putting in some extra effort and focus, they can improve even further every day in the fielding aspect. Mentions that he always looks to bowl as many dots as possible, build pressure on the batsmen and eventually, wicket taking becomes easier. Ends by saying that the wickets in UAE seems to be changing with every match and hence they just need to focus on their performance and concentrate on giving their 100% each time they walk onto the field.

Afghanistan captain Asghar Afghan thanks the almighty and says it was an important day and match for them. Adds further that Rashid Khan and all the other bowlers bowled really well and feels they won the match for them. States that they lost early wickets while batting and also did not play very well in the middle overs. Mentions that thankfully they had a great ending where Rashid Khan played an outstanding innings to get them to a above par total. Admits that they had thought that any score around 250 will be a competitive one as they have some really good bowlers top defend it. Ends by thanking the crowd for their support and requests them to come back again tomorrow to support them again.

The Bangladesh skipper Mashrafe Mortaza says that Afghanistan deserve to win as they have completely outplayed them. Feels that they did not bowl well in the last 10 overs, giving away too many runs and also adds that their batting was also not up to the mark. States further that the big match is coming up tomorrow and they are hopeful to put up a better show. Mentions that it is difficult to recover from such a huge defeat and playing back to back matches also does not help. States that they have to fight harder tomorrow if they want to win. Also says that they are facing some injury concerns as their star opener, Tamim Iqbal, has to return back home due to his injury. Ends by saying that Mushfiqur and Mustafizur were rested because of their niggles.

Full marks to Afghanistan for the way they bowled and fielded. They showed good energy and enthusiasm and always had the upper hand on Bangladesh. Aftab Alam and Gulbadin Naib were impressive with their seam bowling and then Mujeeb along with Rashid did the rest. Their spinners, in particular, were very accurate in their lines and applied immense pressure. The Afghans were so clinical that Bangladesh got their first boundary in the 15th over and managed just 5 boundaries overall. Never allowed any chance to the Men in Green to break free.

In reply, the Bangladesh innings never got going. In absence of Tamim Iqbal, their top order looked very ordinary and failed to tackle the Afghanistan bowlers. The star all-rounder, Shakib, tried hard and finished as the leading run-getter for his team but the continuous fall of wickets made Bangladesh's job really tough. Altogether, a flavorless batting show by the Bangla Tigers to face a hefty defeat.

Earlier in the day, Afghanistan opted to bat but didn't get the desired beginning. Hashmatullah Shahidi and Mohammad Shahzad then steadied the innings with a half century partnership. However, the innings faltered once this stand was broken and at one stage it appeared that Bangladesh will bundle them out under 200. It required a quickfire partnership between Gulbadin Naib and Rashid Khan to revive their hopes as the pair provided the much-needed impetus to the innings. They amassed 95 runs for the 8th wicket and completely stole the momentum from their opposition. A special mention for Rashid Khan's batting where he showed his extraordinary ability to hit big.

Another comprehensive win for Afghanistan! A neat and clean performance to outclass Bangladesh. The Afghans continue with their progress and have once again made a statement. They top their group which in itself is a big achievement and to be honest, the way they are playing at the moment, they can be considered as a title contender.

42.1 W

Mujeeb Ur Rahman to Rubel Hossain. OUT! Mujeeb wraps it up. He comes back and takes one ball to finish this off. It is just too good for the No.11 batsman as he is totally bamboozled by this googly. Mujeeb lands this on a length just outside off. Rubel comes forward to block this out but the ball pitches and turns in to beat his bat. He is thudded on the pads, they appeal and the umpire agrees. Afghanistan have dominated this game as they have demolished the Tigers by 136 runs!

End of Over : 42 0 Runs 42.1: 119/9
41.6 0

Rashid Khan to Mosaddek Hossain. Fires it very full on middle, Hossain keeps it out on the leg side.

41.5 W

Rashid Khan to Mosaddek Hossain. OUT! Run out! Rashid can do nothing wrong on his birthday. Got runs, wickets and now a direct hit run out. Champion stuff! Flighted and full outside off, Mosaddek attempts for an inside out drive probably but fails to middle his shot probably. He ends up mistiming it towards mid off as Rashid gets across to stop the ball. The leggie initially fails to do so and seeing that the non-striker sets off for a run. He is sent back but before he can reach, Rashid has sprinted back, picked up the ball and scored a bull's eye at his end. Well short! You beauty, Rashid!

41.4 0

Rashid Khan to Mosaddek Hossain. Fourth dot as Hossain has defended it by getting right behind the line of the delivery.

41.3 0

Rashid Khan to Mosaddek Hossain. A bit wide of off and a bit short, Hossain taps it into the point region. Three dots to start by Rashid.

41.2 0

Rashid Khan to Mosaddek Hossain. Beaten! Hossain goes for the cut on this flatter delivery, but the ball zips through on landing and the batsman misses his cut.

41.1 0

Rashid Khan to Mosaddek Hossain. Tossed up and very full on off, driven to mid-wicket.

End of Over : 41 5 Runs 42.1: 119/8
