Bangladesh's Mosaddek Hossain attempts a reverse sweep during their World Cup match against Afghanistan in Southampton Monday Dhaka Tribune/Md Manik from Southampton

Mosaddek Hossain got out in the last ball of the innings, but by then, Bangladesh managed to score 262, which is a good score at this ground

Afghanistan were bowling well in the middle period of the innings after electing to bowl, and kept the run rate well under control. 

The Ageas Bowl is a relatively bigger ground compared to the other venues as the boundaries are almost 80m. 

That’s why boundaries were at a premium throughout the Bangladesh innings. 

India managed to score 224 runs against the Afghans on the same pitch and venue Saturday. 

The Tigers needed to accelerate their innings in order to score a challenging total and at that moment, Mosaddek Hossain came out to bat.

Mosaddek missed the last match due to injury and the right-hander played an impact innings on his return in Monday's match. 

The score was 207 for the loss of five wickets in 43 overs when Mahmudullah got out. 

From there, Mosaddek scored 35 off 24 deliveries with four boundaries, which lifted Bangladesh’s run rate a bit in the slog overs. 

Mosaddek got out in the last ball of the innings, but by then, Bangladesh managed to score 262, which is a good score at this ground.
