Asia Cup: Bangladesh set 335-run target for Afghanistan – SUCH TV

Mehidy Hasan Miraz and Najmul Hossan Shantu shined for Bangladesh as the Tigers put a massive total of 334-5 runs on the scoreboard against Afghanistan while batting first at the Gaddafi Stadium in Lahore, Pakistan, on Sunday.

Bangladesh had lost two wickets for 63 runs but then Miraz and Shantu formed a massive 194-run partnership and put their side in a dominant position.

Miraz was retired hurt after scoring 112 off 119 while Shanto was run out for 104 off 105 balls.

Skipper Shakib Al Hasan was the third top-scorer for his side as played an excellent cameo of 32 off 18 balls.

Afghanistan are playing their first ever international match today in Pakistan as they take the field against Bangladesh.

Meanwhile, Bangladesh will be looking to bounce back from their defeat in the first match against Sri Lanka since it is a must-win affair for them in order to qualify for the Super 4.

This is also the first neutral international match in Pakistan since the 2008 Asia Cup.
