On Tuesday, left-arm spinner Nasum Ahmed registered his career-best figures in T20 cricket and guided Bangladesh to an emphatic 23-run win over Australia in the series opener at Dhaka.

Nasum’s 4/19 helped Bangladesh to dismiss Australia for 108 while defending a target of 132. With this win, the hosts have taken a 1-0 lead in the five-match series.

It was also Bangladesh’s first-ever T20I win over Australia, whose four wins against The Tigers have come in T20 World Cups. This is the first bilateral series between the two teams.

Earlier, after opting to bowl first, Australia kept Bangladesh down to 131 for seven. Fast bowler Josh Hazlewood delivered an impressive spell of 4-0-24-3.

For Bangladesh, opener Mohammed Naim scored 30 (29) with the help of 2 fours and as many sixes, while Shakib Al Hasan made a 33-ball 36.

The second T20I will be played at the same venue on Wednesday (August 4).
