WT20 Bangladesh vs Afghanistan

Group Match

Bangladesh beat Afghanistan by 9 wickets

Hosts Bangladesh and Nepal won their respective Group A matches on the first day of the WT20 2014 tournament. The victory over Afghanistan almost assures Bangladesh a passage through to the super-10s as only one team from this qualifying group would go through and the hosts have a better chance of winning over Nepal and Hong Kong, than they had against Afghanistan who beat them in the Asia Cup two weeks ago. Afghanistan, sent in to bat, were skittled for 72 in 17.1 overs at the Sher-e-Bangla stadium as left-arm spinner Shakib Al Hasan grabbed three wickets for eight runs. The meagre total was the second lowest in the World T20 competitions, barely surpassing Ireland's 68 against the West Indies in 2010. Shakib Al Hasan of Bangladesh and Afghanistan's Dawlat Zadran were fined 50% of their match fees for Level 2 breaches of the ICC Code of Conduct. The incident happened in the ninth over of Bangladesh's innings when Dawlat, in his follow through, made deliberate physical contact with Shakib, who, in turn reacted and made physical contact with the bowler.

Bangladesh XI: Tamim Iqbal, Anamul Haque, Shakib Al Hasan, Mushfiqur Rahim (Captain & Wicket Keeper), Sabbir Rahman, Nasir Hossain, Mahmudullah, Farhad Reza, Mashrafe Mortaza, Al-Amin Hossain, Abdur Razzak
