The pair added 202 for the third wicket, a record for Bangladesh in ODIs
Bangladesh 306 for 4 (Litton 136, Mushfiqur 86, Fareed 2-56) vs Afghanistan
Litton reached his century in the 41st over when he lofted Rashid Khan over the covers. The 136 off 126 balls is Litton’s second-highest score in ODIs, and his third hundred at home.
In a momentary blip for the hosts, Mushfiqur, who made 86, followed Litton back to the pavilion off consecutive balls, but by then Bangladesh had the base for a big finish. Mahmudullah and Afif Hossain however hit just one boundary between them, and Bangladesh added just 20 runs in the last 3.3 overs.
Litton stroked the ball to most of his favoured areas. He used his range of cut shots to find eight boundaries in that region, apart from two beautiful drives, three flicked fours and swivel pull. After completing his century, Litton smacked two big sixes towards the shorter boundary at midwicket, the first of which went into the second tier.
Mushfiqur played a supporting knock, nurdling singles to feed Litton the strike while he was hitting the ball well. Mushfiqur struck nine fours in his 93-ball knock, but fell trying to upper-cut Fareed Ahmad in the 47th over.
