Bangladesh vs Afghanistan Live Cricket Score Online: The Tigers feature in must-win clash

Bangladesh vs Afghanistan Ban vs Afg Highlights: Shakib Al Hasan’s all-round performance saw Bangladesh beating Afghanistan by 62 runs in the World Cup clash at Southampton. After scoring 51 that guided his side to a challenging 262/7, Hasan finished with 5/29 as Afghanistan were bundled out for 200 keeping Bangladesh’s semifinal hope afloat.

After Bangladesh were invited to bat, their wickets fell at regular intervals at the slow Southampton track. Mujeeb Ur Rahman gave Afghanistan early breakthrough by removing Liton Das (16) in the fifth over. Mohammad Nabi then gave Bangladesh second jolt by bowling out Tamim Iqbal (36) after his 59-run stand with Shakib-Al-Hasan. Hasan and Rahim then steadied the Bangladesh innings before Rahman’s twin blow rattled them. Rahman removed Shakib-Al-Hasan (51) and Soumya Sarkar (3) in consecutive overs leaving Bangladesh at 151/4 in the 32nd over. However, Rahim held his nerves and scored a patient 83 off 87 deliveries as Bangladesh posted 262/7.

In reply, Afghanistan got off to a decent start before Hasan dismissed Rahmat Shah (24) to give them first blow. After addition of 30 runs to the board, Mosaddek Hossain scalped Hashmatullah Shahidi (11) to give Afghanistan second jolt in the 21st over. But after Afghanistan crossed the 100-run mark, Hasan wreaked havoc and claimed four wickets as Afghanistan were bowled out for 200.

    Samiullah Shinwari and Najibullah Zadran are keeping it alive by hitting 50-runs in between them in 41 balls. Still going strong. AFG are 184/6 after 42 overs.

    22:13 (IST)24 Jun 2019
    First six of the innings

    Shinwari was being tested by Shakib for a long time, but he punished the spinner in the last ball of the over by hitting one over the boundary line. Shakib conceded 11 runs from that over. He had conceded just 10 from his previous 7. AFG are 177/6 after 41 overs.

    22:07 (IST)24 Jun 2019
    Second powerplay ends

    Still providing opportunities of runouts to Bangladesh, but Afghanistan are commendable to put up a fight, with Shinwari and Najibullah attacking each ball. Shaifuddin managed to concede just 5 runs from the over though. Second powerplay ends. Afghanistan need 97 runs in 60 balls. AFG are 166/6 after 40 overs. 

    21:57 (IST)24 Jun 2019
    Najibullah still fighting

    Najibullah is still looking to get the boundaries and bring the runrate lower. He hits a brilliant boundary to Mosaddek. Afghanistan have left it a little too late, or is it not? They need 109 runs in 72 balls. AFG are 154/6 after 38 overs.

    21:49 (IST)24 Jun 2019
    Bangladesh smelling victory

    With each dot ball, Bangladesh are edging closer to victory, so Shinwari hits a boundary. Najibullah hits another to long-on punishing Hasan. But no less than a miracle can save Afghanistan. The asking runrate is now 8.71. AFG are 141/6 after 36 overs.

    21:45 (IST)24 Jun 2019

    HE'S GONE! What a brilliant throw by Liton who hits the wicket directly. Ikram Ali Khil walks off. AFG are 132/6 after 35.1 overs. 

    21:36 (IST)24 Jun 2019
    Boundary drought

    The last boundary in this innings was hit in the 24th over. 10 overs have gone by since then. Bangladesh have done really well in these middle overs. They have returned to their seam options for now - Mortaza and Mustafizur are bowling in tandem. Could we have another shift of momentum now? AFG are 132/5 after 35 overs.

    21:26 (IST)24 Jun 2019
    Shakib picks up his 4th wicket

    Another wicket! Asghar Afghan the man dismissed this time. Went for the slog sweep but gets caught in the deep by Sabbir Rahman, who is on as a substitute. Shakib has spun a web around this Afghan batting order. His figures now 7-1-10-4. Unreal figures!
    He has also picked up 9 wickets in this World Cup so far. He is already the highest run-getter of this edition, maybe he also wants to be on top of the wicket-takers' column.

    21:19 (IST)24 Jun 2019
    Special landmark for Shakib

    Shakib has become the first player in history to score 1000 runs and take 30 wickets in World Cups. One of the greatest all-rounders of the modern era. Shakib's double blow has pegged back the Afghanistan scoring rate. There's a lot more pressure on the batsmen now. The field has closed in on Shinwari, the new batsman. Runs are suddenly a lot harder to come by.

    21:12 (IST)24 Jun 2019

    BOWLED HIM! Mohammad Nabi just left standing as Shakib let the bails fly. Afghanistan are seriously in trouble now as two key men are dismissed. Is this the over that decides the outcome of this match? AFG are 111/4 after 30 overs.

    21:10 (IST)24 Jun 2019
    GOT IT!

    Shakib strikes again! He dismisses the skipper, Gulbadin Naib as he is caught out for 47. Afghanistan might be in trouble now. Serious trouble. AFG are 104/3 after 28.1 overs.

    21:03 (IST)24 Jun 2019
    Liton being silly

    In a brave move by Mashrafe, he has placed Liton Das at silly point. No one sees that in white ball cricket. Shakib bowls a maiden over. Excellent from Bangladesh! AFG are 101/2 after 27 overs.

    20:57 (IST)24 Jun 2019
    Mahmudullah out

    Mahmudullah has a calf injury and won't take any further part in this game. 

    20:56 (IST)24 Jun 2019
    Shakib's back in

    Replacing Mosaddek, Shakib comes in to face Naib. Just the two runs off the over. Afghanistan need to remind themselves that this is not the sort of pitch where they can get 100 runs in the death overs, so they do need to stay in touch with the asking runrate. AFG are 98/2 after 25 overs.

    20:49 (IST)24 Jun 2019
    Boundary at long last

    A much needed boundary from Naib brings back the smile on Afghanistan fans. Hossain disappointed. AFG are 87/2 after 23 overs. 

    20:48 (IST)24 Jun 2019
    Dot balls everywhere

    The required runrate is climbing and climbing for Afghanistan. It is at 6.35. Asghar Afghan takes a single off a Hasan ball. Naib, with his cap on, still remaining on the crease with his own strike-rate dropping, and almost getting caught out in the last ball. AFG are 81/2 after 22 overs. 

    20:42 (IST)24 Jun 2019

    STUMPED! Mosaddek Hossain bags Bangladesh's second as he dismisses Hashmatullah. He goes after scoring 11 from 31 balls. Bangladesh need to keep going making use of their three spinners. AFG are 79/2 after 20.5 overs.

    20:38 (IST)24 Jun 2019
    Afghanistan still figuring

    Still, not losing any wickets, Afghanistan still can guide the match to victory. Four runs from Hasan's over. Shahidi at 10 and Naib at 34. AFG are 77/1 after 20 overs. 

    20:32 (IST)24 Jun 2019
    Stuck in a limbo

    Since that four by Gulbadin Naib, Afghanistan's runs have dried up just like the pitch. It is as if the match is stuck in a limbo, where Afghanistan can't seem to get boundaries and runs on a regular basis and Bangladesh can't figure out how to get more wickets. Still, 7 runs from the over of Hasan is an improvement. AFG are 72/1 after 18 overs.

    20:20 (IST)24 Jun 2019
    Afghanistan on the backfoot

    Mosaddek Hossain is in to keep on piling the pressure on Naib and Shahidi who are clearly on the backfoot now. Bangladesh looking to get the required runrate above 6.00. But Naib throws water on that hope with a well hit boundary, hoping that it will start a steady partnership. AFG are 58/1 after 15 overs.

    20:11 (IST)24 Jun 2019
    Spin's the way

    After Shakib claimed his wicket, Mashrafe has brought in Mehidy Hasan now. He troubles Hashmatullah as he is still stuck on zero. Just one run from the over. AFG are 50/1 after 12 overs.

    20:05 (IST)24 Jun 2019

    OUT! After the end of first powerplay, a bit of spin is brought into the play through Shakib Al Hasan. And he gets Rahmat Shah! He walks away after scoring 24. AFG are 49/1 after 10.5 overs.

    19:58 (IST)24 Jun 2019
    Rahmat on fire

    Rahmat Shah has no time to wait to get the runrate up, and he punishes Mashrafe Mortaza with two boundaries. Well placed and well timed. 12 off the over. AFG are 45/0 after 9 overs.

    19:54 (IST)24 Jun 2019
    Slow and steady
    19:46 (IST)24 Jun 2019
    Much needed boundary

    Mustafizur is proving to be the Kryptonite for the Afghanistan openers. The wicket's coming, but the batsmen are well defending against the threat of Rahman, as Naib punishes him in the last ball of the over. AFG are 27/0 after 6 overs.

    19:38 (IST)24 Jun 2019
    Good start by Mustafizur

    The left-handed pacer has started off really well against Afghanistan. Tormenting Naib in the first over, and now Rahmat on the receiving end. But on the last ball of the over, Rahmat guides the ball to deep square leg which breaks the chance of a consecutive maiden for Mustafizur Rahman. AFG are 20/0 after 4 overs.

    19:34 (IST)24 Jun 2019
    Steady start for Afghanistan

    After a series of leg-byes and wides, Afghanistan have found themselves going on a steady rate. Naib and Rahmat still need to score runs after hitting the ball with their bat properly, scoring just 7 runs out of 15. AFG are 15/0 after 3 overs.

    19:24 (IST)24 Jun 2019
    Back underway!

    Mashrafe Mortaza opens the bowling for Bangladesh to restrict Afghanistan from reaching the target of 263. Rahmat Shah and Gulbadin Naib open the batting. After a leg-bye and a wide and a two, AFG are 4/0 after the first over. 

    18:53 (IST)24 Jun 2019
    Afghanistan need 263 to win
    18:51 (IST)24 Jun 2019
    Bangladesh restricted at 262/7

    Bangladesh tried their hand at slogging, and they succeeded somewhat on such a slow pitch. After Mosaddek was bowled out on the last ball by Naib, they finished the innings at 262/7. Afghanistan now need 263 runs to win the match!

    18:43 (IST)24 Jun 2019

    OUT! Dawlat Zadran dismisses the main man on the crease, Mushfiqur Rahim. He walks off at 83 from 87 balls. BAN are 251/6 after 48.3 overs.

    18:40 (IST)24 Jun 2019
    Bangladesh motivated

    Musfiqur hits Rashid Khan for a four in the first ball of his over itself, a perfectly timed reverse sweep. Mosaddek hits another in the third ball. Bangladesh now have only goal, to get the total over 260 atleast. BAN are 246/5 after 48 overs.

    18:36 (IST)24 Jun 2019
    Mosaddek smacks

    In need of runs to set a hefty target for Afghanistan, Mosaddek took responsibility upon himself to smash Dawlat's first ball of the over for a four. BAN are 236/5 after 47 overs.
