Latest Match Report – Bangladesh vs Afghanistan One Test 2023

lunch Bangladesh 116 for 1 (Shando 64*, Joy 38*, Masood 1-24) vs Afghanistan

Najmul Hossain Santo reached his half-century as Bangladesh were 116 for 1 at the end of the first session of the Test against Afghanistan in Dhaka. The pair added 110 runs for an unbroken second wicket with Mahmud Hasan Joy. The only highlight of Afghanistan’s way of putting Bangladesh into bat was Nijad Masood’s first-ball wicket in Test cricket. He became the first Afghan cricketer to do so, and the seventh in this century.

Shando and Joy blunted Afghanistan. Sandhu remained unbeaten on 64 off 76 balls with 11 fours while Joy scored 38 off 70 balls with 6 fours.

A fast-moving ball from Jagir, who was holding his bat in an attempt to avoid Masood’s wicket-edge, resulted. Masood and the other Afghanistan fielders were unfazed when they started celebrating. The umpire didn’t lift a finger at first either, but when the review came, the edge was evident.

Santo overcame an early setback as fast bowler Yamin Ahmadzai hit fours through mid-off, both drives. Shando hit another six fours, while Masood hit three off the ball as he took advantage of the aggressive fielding. He welcomed left-arm wrist spinner Zaheer Khan with three more fours.

Joy Karim Janat was hit with a drive after Santo had wrecked the new bowlers. The string of boundaries ended in the 20th over when Zahir conceded three boundaries. With the first century, Shanto got his fourth Test half-century. Zahir struggled for accuracy, often bowling leg-stump. Joy hit him for two more boundaries, two leg-stump half-volleys, while Santo got a first-ball boundary with a rank long-hop.
