Birthday boy Rashid stars as Afghanistan upset Bangladesh

Bangladesh vs Afghanistan

Bangladesh won the opening match of Asia Cup bowling out Sri Lanka for 124 runs to record their biggest win on foreign soil, making a giant leap towards the Super Four round.

Asia Cup 2018, Bangladesh vs Afghanistan, Match 6, Group B Live Updates: Star leg-spinner Rashid Khan came out with a brilliant all-round performance as Afghanistan defeated Bangladesh easily by a huge margin of 136 runs in the last group encounter of the ongoing Asia Cup 2018 at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi on Thursday.

Bangladesh will be the other team to qualify from Group B into the final four.

Hashmatullah Shahidi was the top scorer for the team as he made 58 runs. Rashid Khan, Mujeeb Ur Rahman and Mohammad Nabi are such good bowlers than Afghanistan need only around 220 to 250 to be competitive. Let's now take a look at how the two teams line up before we make our Asia Cup prediction for Bangladesh vs Afghanistan.

When is Asia Cup 2018 Bangladesh vs Afghanistan ODI?

Baker Mayfield Led A Browns Comeback For Their First Win Since 2016
He completed his first two passes - a 14-yard pass to Jarvis Landry and a 17-yarder to David Njoku - to move the Browns downfield. Four plays later, the Browns got on the scoreboard with a 45-yard field goal by Greg Joseph to make it 14-3 Jets at halftime.

Afghanistan are showing impressive form in the fifty-overs format with seven wins in their last eight ODI's.

Afghanistan, on the other hand, have just made one change from the XI that thrashed Sri Lanka - Najibullah Zadran has been replaced by Samiullah Shenwari. With Tamim Iqbal flying back to Bangladesh following the injury he sustained in that clash against Sri Lanka, the task is going to get tougher. Openers Mohammad Shahzad and Ihsanullah Janat, along with Rahmat Shah showed great temperament while batting against Sri Lanka. Whule In their most recent ODI clash Bangladesh outplayed Afghanistan by 141 runs.

What to expect: Both teams will be wary of bowling first in these conditions especially with a vital game scheduled the following day. He scored 144 of 150, and received decent support from Mohammad Mithun (63) as Bangladesh scored 261.

Expected Playing XI: Mashrafe Mortaza (C), Rubel Hossain, Mustafizur Rahman, Mominul Haque, Liton Das, Shakib Al Hasan, Mushfiqur Rahim, Mohammad Mithun, Mahmudullah, Mosaddek Hossain and Mehidy Hasan.
