Afghanistan won by 5 wickets (with 4 balls remaining)


Asghar Afghan: The first game of the series is very important but good that we won. Our top order played some loose shots but I am happy the way Nabi and Najib batted. We want our young guys to get some exposure because our main plan is the World Cup."

Mohammad Nabi is the Man of the Match. "The batting side is always under pressure when you are 50 for 5," he says. "But we kept taking singles and doubles."
