Hasmatullah Shahidi, Afghanistan Captain: We had a good start but they played very well without giving a chance, which was incredible. We were 30-runs short but the way Fazal started was great but credit to them for fighting back. This was just the start but there are two more games to go and we will look to come back.

Mehidy Hasan is the Player of the Match for his 81* (120) and 10-3-28-0

Tamim Iqbal, Bangladesh Captain: Honestly, I did not believe we could win after 45/6. But I’m very proud and happy for the two for their incredible innings. Afghanistan have a brilliant attack but Mehidy and Afif did well. Hopefully, this is a start for them and they have many more amazing performances.
