Afghanistan won the toss and elected to bat first against Bangladesh. 

Afghanistan openers Rahmanullah Gurbaz and Hazratullah Zazai came to the crease while Bangladesh skipper Shakib al Hasan brought all-rounder Saifuddin in the attack. 

Visitors were looking for a blistering opening stand, like their last match against Zimbabwe on Saturday (49 in five overs without a wicket), but this time Bangladesh were on top straight away as Saifuddin clean bowled Gurbaz in the very first ball of the match.

It was a stunning delivery from Saifuddin as it pitched around middle and leg stump and shaped away to hit the off stump. It was a perfect out swinger from the right-handed seamer and the stump made a cartwheel few meters back, a pleasant view for a pace bowler. 

Gurbaz was in good touch as he scored 43 off just 24 deliveries in last match and his early dismissal gave a good impetus for Bangladesh in the very first ball.
