Dehradun, June 5 (IANS) Afghanistan took an unassailable 2-0 lead in the three-match T20I series as they defeated Bangladesh by six wickets at the Rajiv Gandhi International Cricket Stadium here on Tuesday.
Opting to bat first, Bangladesh managed to put a paltry 134/8 as Afghanistan leggie Rashid Khan shattered the opponent's batting line up with figures of 4/12.
It was only Tamin Iqbal (43) and Abu Hider (unbeaten 21), who showed some resistance against their opponents, to help Bangladesh reach a moderate total.
Afghanistan chased down the total with ease with seven balls to spare, thanks to a decent batting effort.
Before falling out, openers Mohmmad Shahzad (24) and Usman Ghani (21) provided a good start to Afghanistan while Samiullah Shenwari and Mohaad Nabi contributed with 41 and 31 runs reapectively to help Afghanistan clinch the series.
