Afghanistan looking back at Test win as inspiration
CRICDOT DESK : The sweetest memory for Afghanistan, which is synonymous with misery for Bangladesh. The Afghan team is again at the Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium where the wings of the hosts are drowning in the wail of losing. The last time the Afghans came to play an ODI series was in September 2019. In the only Test of the tour, the grace of rain could not save the hosts.
Shakib Al Hasan’s team was drowning in the shame of a huge loss of 224 runs. With 11 wickets in two innings, Rashid Khan, the Afghan captain of that Test, left Shakib alone. Hashmatullah Shahidi of that team has come to Bangladesh as ODI captain this time. It is only natural that a team that has come to play on this field for the last time and has written such a great victory story will want to repeat the same success. Hashmatullah also spoke out loud.
We want to start the ODI series from tomorrow where we stopped after losing to Bangladesh in Tests. ‘Of course we want to start from there. We have great memories here. We have taken a lot of positive things from that test match. I will try to start from there tomorrow. ‘
