In addition to the pair, Bangladeshi captain Shakib Al Hasan made sure his team finished strong by contributing an unblemished 18-ball 32. In reaction, Shoriful Islam packed Rahmanullah Gurbaz for 1(7) and early on shocked Afghanistan. The innings was subsequently rebuilt by Rahmat Shah and Ibrahim Zadran when Taskin Ahmed dismissed the former for 33(57), ending their 78-run partnership for the second wicket. Before Mushfiqur Rahim's one-handed miracle ended Ibrahim's time in the middle, he had scored 75 (74). After being relieved of command, Hashmatullah Shahidi scored 51 (60) before losing to Shoriful. Rashid Khan, the final batter to be dismissed, led Afghanistan to be bowled out for 245 in 44.3 overs.
