Teenage batting sensation Afif Hossain rattled Zimbabwe with his exquisite hits to seal a thrilling come-from-behind victory for Bangladesh. Playing just his second T20I, Afif heralded a lower-order recovery as Bangladesh managed to chase down the target of 145 from 60/6.
The rain-affected clash featured another Bangladesh batting collapse with the senior duo of Shakib Al Hasan and Mushfiqur Rahim collectively contributing a single run. Afif then emerged as the unlikely candidate to steer his side to three-wicket win in the final over of the game.
The left-hander caressed the ball to the boundary rope a number of times, showing great finesse in showcasing sweet timing. The 19-year-old smashed a total of 8 fours and 1 maximum in his 26-ball 52 which allowed Bangladesh a confidence-boosting triumph in the tri-nation T20 tournament.
