Cricket World Cup 2019: Twitter Adores 'Fabulous' Shakib Show vs Afghanistan

Bangladesh crushed Afghanistan by 62 runs to keep their ICC World Cup 2019 campaign going after Shakib Al Hasan had a brilliant day out both with bat and ball. He first hit a fifty before taking a five-fer with the ball to seal the game for his side.

Earlier, Afghanistan won the toss but for some reason opted to chase on a used deck. They did get rid of Liton Das early and Tamim Iqbal fell soon after but Shakib Al Hasan scored another fifty to keep his good run going. For Bangladesh, it was Mujeeb ur Rahman who returned to form.

It was then thanks to a brilliant 83 from Mushfiqur Rahim that Bangladesh got to post a strong total on the board. Mosaddek Hossain also played a fine cameo towards the end.

In the chase, it was Shakib all the while as he ran through the Afghanistan batting lineup who really never got going on a difficult deck.
