ICC Cricket World Cup Highlights: Bangladesh beat Afghanistan by 62 runs

Updated : 2019-06-25 06:51:41

Shakib Al Hasan showed why he's the top-ranked allrounder in one-day international cricket by scoring a half-century and then taking a five-wicket haul to steer Bangladesh to a 62-run World Cup win over Afghanistan. Shakib moved atop the tournament scoring list with 51 to take his tally to 476 runs, then took 5-29 to lift his tournament wicket tally to 10. The 32-year-old left-hander is the only player other than India's Yuvraj Singh, who took 5-31 and posted an unbeaten 50 against Ireland at Bangalore in 2011, to achieve the all-rounder double in a World Cup game. Yuvraj was voted player of the World Cup in 2011 when India won the title on home soil. Bangladesh has a week off before its next game against India at Edgbaston and then faces Pakistan. The top four teams after the group stage will advance to the semifinals. Taking wickets in three different spells, Shakib was the key contributor with the ball as Afghanistan was dismissed for 200, falling to its seventh straight loss in the tournament. Bangladesh moved to fifth in the standings with seven points, just one behind top-ranked England and four behind tournament-leading New Zealand. Afghanistan entered the game on a high after restricting India to 224-8 on the same pitch two days before and getting within 11 runs of what would have been one of the biggest upsets in the tournament's history. That prompted skipper Naib to field first after winning the toss and try to keep the chase as low as possible. Here are the highlights of the match:
