Rashid Khan opted to bat first on the same venue where Afghanistan defeated Australia some back.

Azmatullah scored 10, while the next three batters failed to provide some support to already struggling Rahmanullah Gurbaz, who played a knock 43 off 55 deliveries, left team Afghanistan in difficult situation.  

The skipper tried his best to rescue with a 10-ball 19* cameo to push the team’s total to 115 after 20 overs.  

Rishad Hossain was the pick of the bowlers for Bangladesh, as he grabbed 3 wickets while giving 26 in 4 overs.
