Afghanistan put on an impressive show once again in their second outing of the ongoing Asia Cup 2022 against Bangladesh.
Bangladesh won the toss and decided to bat first. Be it poor batting or disciplined bowling from Afghanistan, the 'Bangla Tigers' failed to justify their decision.
First, it was Mujeeb ur Rahman who started dismantling the Bangladeshi top order and Rashid Khan soon followed suit as he scrambled the middle order. The two spinners shared 8 overs between them, in which they conceded 38 runs and picked up 6 wickets.
Let us take a look at the line and lengths the two spinners bowled in the match.
Now let us look at the variations used by the two spinners.
