Left-arm spinner Nasum, ran through the Afghanistan top-order as he dismissed opener Rahmanullah Gurbaz for a duck in the very first over.

In his next over he bagged his fourth wicket by dismissing Karim Janat. After completing his quota of four overs, his figures read 4-0-10-4.

BAN vs AFG 1st T20I Highlights: Nasum Ahmed’s four wicket haul and Litton Das’ fifty help Bangladesh defeat Afghanistan in 1st T20

Earlier, Litton Das smashed his fifth T20 International fifty to help Bangladesh score 155/8 at the end of 20 overs. Coming in at number 3, Litton Das was impressive with the bat as he scored a vital 60 off 44 deliveries including four fours and two sixes to rescue Bangladesh who were struggling after losing three early wickets.

Afghanistan made a good start as they have taken the wicket of both the openers. Bangladesh openers Mohammad Naim and Munim Shahriar, who made debut, couldn’t provide a good start. First it was Naim, who was dismissed in the third over by left-arm pacer Fazalhaq Farooqi. Then in the last ball of the fifth over, Shahriar was trapped LBW by Rashid Khan as they were reeling at 25/2 by the end of 5 overs.
