    Afghanistan are still yet to win a match in the 2019 World Cup after being beaten by Bangladesh today.

    Batting first, Bangladesh were propelled to 262/7 by Mushfiqur Rahim’s 87-ball 83 – Mujeeb Ur Rahman took 3/39 in 10 overs to lead the bowling attack.

    But the real star of the contest was Shakib Al Hasan who contributed 51 to their total and followed it up with 5/29 in 10 overs as Afghanistan were bowled out for 200.

    Samiullah Shinwari was left stranded on 49 – the top score of the Afghan innings.
