With the Thumping win, Afghanistan finishes on top of the group and becomes the first team to confirm place in the super 4 stages of the tournament.

On a well-rolled Sharjah pitch, Bangladesh captain Shakib Al Hasan opted to bat first after winning the toss.

Spinners Mujeeb Ur Rahman and Rashid Khan took three wickets as Afghanistan restricted the opposition to 127-7.

Chasing 128 for victory, Afghanistan were in trouble at 62-3 when Najibullah (43) joined Ibrahim Zadran (42) for an unbeaten stand of 69 and sailed their side to the victory with nine balls to spare.

Najibullah Zadran tore into the Bangladesi bowling attack with six sixes.
