Afghanistan sets new record for most consecutive T20I wins

Tri-series T20: Zimbabwe bowl first against Afghanistan

Bangladesh too, have four points from one match but Afghanistan have a better run-rate in comparison to their opponents.

Nazmul Hossain Shanto, who has played two Tests and three ODIs so far, makes a return to the national side and has received a call-up to the T20I squad for the first time. Especially @MohammadNabi007 with his 84*. In reply, Bangladesh could only manage 139 runs as they bowed down before Rahman who picked up four wickets giving away just 15 runs in his stipulated four-over spell. No other team won even ten successive T20I matches.

The previous record of registering successive T20I victories was also held by Afghanistan. They had completed 11 T20I wins from March 27, 2016, to March 12, 2017. Afghanistan have +1.400 run-rate, while Bangladesh are behind with +0.377 run-rate. Angelo Mathews (55 in 2009-2015 for Sri Lanka) and Saeed Ajmal (54 in 2009-2013 for Pakistan) also featured in 50 consecutive T20Is of their respective teams. The current match is the first such instance in more than 3 and half years.


3 - Number of deliveries the opening partnerships collectively lasted in this match; the joint-fewest in any T20I match. "In franchise we have different roles and here we have different roles as Mujeeb opens for us, he was brilliant so was the captain", man of the match Mohammad Nabi said after the match.

Squad: Shakib Al Hasan (capt), Mushfiqur Rahim, Mahmudullah Riyad, Sabbir Rahman, Mosaddek Hossain, Liton Das, Afif Hossain, Taijul Islam, Rubel Hossain, Shafiul Islam, Mustafizur Rahman, Mohammad Saifuddin, Mohammad Naim, Aminul Islam and Nazmul Hossain. The highest is recorded by Nabi himself when he scored 89 against Ireland in the 2017 Greater Noida T20I while batting at No.7.

Regis Chakabva hit an unbeaten 42 off 22 balls but it could not put Afghanistan under any kind of pressure after their bowlers made some early breakthroughs to take the target beyond Zimbabwe's reach.
