For Bangladesh, Afif Hosain scored the most runs, making 36 runs off 34 balls. Mohammad Rizwan stumped him off a Shadab Khan googly.

It merits mentioning that Pakistan has rested Shaheen Afridi from the 12-member squad laid forth by skipper Babar Azam yesterday.

Moreover, Asif Ali and Imad Wasim were amongst the notable absentees.

The first T20I is being played at the Sher-e-Bangla Cricket Stadium. Bangladesh Cricket Board’s statement said that the second and third matches of the series would also be played at the similar venue on November 20 and 22.

Pakistan’s 12-player squad, as named by the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB), features Babar Azam (captain), Shadab Khan (vice-captain),  Zaman, Haider Ali, Haris Rauf, Hasan Ali, Khushdil Shah, Mohammad Nawaz, Mohammad Rizwan (wicketkeeper), Mohammad Wasim Jr, Shaheen Shah Afridi, and Shoaib Malik.

The last time Bangladesh and Pakistan met was in January 2020, when Bangladesh toured Pakistan for a T20I series nearly two years ago. The first match was abandoned, but Pakistan won the series 2-0, courtesy of their strong bowling performances. Bangladesh finished sixth in Group 1 of the Super 12 stage in the ICC T20 World Cup, losing all five games. They would be hoping to erase the failed campaign from their memories and take on dangerous-looking Pakistan.
