Bangladesh avoided a string of losses by winning the third ODI easily. They needed 26.3 overs to finish off Afghanistan’s 126 run chase. By limiting Afghanistan to 15/4 in the early going, the bowlers from Bangladesh set the stage for the victory. The best bowlers were Shoriful and Taskin, who both claimed two wickets. The Bangladesh spinners kept a tight lid on the scoring rate, making it difficult for the Afghanistan batters.
Though Bangladesh lost the series but the win in the last game will boost their mentality to win the T20 series.

In the third ODI, Afghanistan’s batting crumbled, scoring 126 runs on the scoreboard, and their bowling was also subpar. As a result, Bangladesh easily chased down the mark and won the game. However, in the big picture, they were victorious in the series and will now be anticipating the T20 series.
