ICC Cricket World Cup 2019, Bangladesh Vs Afghanistan, Match 31: Bangladesh beat Afghanistan by 62 runs

In the 31st match of the World Cup, Bangladesh defeated Afghanistan by 62 runs on Monday in Southampton. This is the 7th consecutive defeat in Afghanistan's World Cup. At the same time, Bangladesh team won the third win. With this win, Bangladesh team left behind Sri Lanka in the points table and reached number five. He has 7 points in 7 matches.

Batting first, losing the toss, Bangladesh had 262/7 set on the scoreboard. Chasing 263 runs, Afghanistan went down to just over 200 runs in 47 overs. In front of the Bangladeshi bowlers, Afghanistan never saw anything in the match. With the help of taking 5 wickets in 29 overs in 10 overs, Shakib is also the first Bangladeshi player to hit a wicket in the World Cup.

After pursuing the target of 263, captain Gulbadin Naib, along with Rahmat Shah, gave a slow, but the restrained start. In the 11th over, the team had 49 runs, then Shakib Al Hasan spells a spell of spin and gave Bangladesh a crucial wicket of Rahmat Shah (24). The Bangladesh team dominated Afghanistan after getting the first wicket. With the help of their spin bowlers, Afghanistan can add only 63 runs to the scoreboard by losing three important wickets in 20 overs.

Hashmatullah Shahidi (11) was stumped by Mosaddek Hossain, then Gulbuddin (47), Mohammad Nabi (0) and then Asghar Afgan (20) were implicated in Shakib Al Hasan by his spin. Over time, the slow pitch continued to fall on the wicket. None of the Afghanistan batsmen came to the crease to stay on the crease or win the match. Perhaps the reason for this is that Afghanistan also lost its seventh consecutive match.

Teams:

Afghanistan (Playing XI): Gulbadin Naib(c), Rahmat Shah, Hashmatullah Shahidi, Asghar Afghan, Mohammad Nabi, Najibullah Zadran, Samiullah Shinwari, Ikram Ali Khil(w), Rashid Khan, Dawlat Zadran, Mujeeb Ur Rahman
