Stats that matter
- Tamim Iqbal’s first-ball dismissal on Sunday was the first time Bangladesh lost a wicket off the first ball in a T20I.
- Afghanistan are a win away from recording their fourth bilateral T20I series win over a Test-playing nation. All three of these till date have come against Zimbabwe.
