Afghanistan began their historic tour of India with a dominant performance against Bangladesh, crushing them by 45 runs in the first T20 in Dehradun.
 
The clinical display went along expected lines as their big-hitters Mohammad Shahzad, Samiullah Shenwari and Shafiqullah got them to competitive 167 for 8 in 20 overs.
 
That set it up for the usual suspects - Rashid Khan, Mohammad Nabi and Mujeeb Ur Rahman - to do their thing and dismantle Bangladesh, as they were bowled out for 122 in 19 overs.
 
Having broken the back of the chase, Rashid snaffled an excellent catch - diving to his left and grabbing Abu Jayed's slap overhead with both hands - giving Afghanistan a 1-0 lead in the three-match series.
 
It was a complete performance from Afghanistan, characterized by a clinical bowling performance that didn't give Bangladesh any chance of chasing down the total.
