CRICDOT DESK : Although Liton Das and Mushfiqur Rahim were both out, Bangladesh made a mountain of runs with their pair of 200 runs. These two batsmen have brought a big collection to Bangladesh by beating Rashid-Nabi-Mujib. Bangladesh lost 4 wickets in 50 overs and scored 306 runs.

To win, Afghanistan will have to score 306 runs at the rate of 6.12 runs per over. Liton and Mushfiqur, two settled batsmen, got life today. Mushfiqur could not play the last ball of Mujib’s quota. Substitute keeper Ikram Ali Khil could not take advantage of the easy opportunity of stumping. At that time Mushfiqur was 69 runs. It was hoped that, like Liton, he would take the half-century home.

He played a little hard towards that goal. But he did not live up to expectations. Dependable. In the 48th over, Mushfiqur caught thirdman Farooqi off the second delivery of pacer Farid Ahmed. Before being out, one of the stars of Panchpandab made 6 runs from 93 balls in 9 boundaries.

Liton-Mushfiqur pair stopped today with 202 runs from 190 balls. After the dismissal of these two batsmen, Afif Hossain Dhruv and Mahmudullah, the heroes of the last match, took the team collection beyond 300 runs.

Afif made 13 runs off 12 balls and Mahmudullah made 6 runs off 9 balls.
