Afghanistan started off well with the ball in the first T20I but the introduction of Rashid Khan into the attack tightened the screws a great deal. They kept chipping away at the wickets from one end, but Liton Das held the other one firmly, taking his time to settle and then cut loose to engineer a 44-ball 60. And although there was a flurry of wickets at the end, the boundaries kept coming as Bangladesh posted 155 for 8 at the Shere Bangla National Stadium, Dhaka. The visitors have made a poor start in the chase, losing a wicket with just a single run on the board.
