This will be the first warm-up match for Bangladesh ahead of the World Cup as they come into the mega event with a tri-series win over West Indies and Ireland.

In Pakistan's first warm-up match,  Afghanistan’s Hashmatullah Shahidi hit an unbeaten 74 as they stunned former champions to win by three wickets with two balls to spare in a thriller in Bristol.

Chasing a modest 263 for victory, Afghanistan’s opening batsmen Mohammad Shahzad and Hazratullah Zazai got them off to a blistering start before Shahidi took charge to help them cross the finish line in the final over.

“It’s a great victory for the people of Afghanistan,” skipper Gulbadin Naib said. “If you look at Pakistan, it’s one of the best sides. You can’t take anyone easily. At the World Cup anything can happen, so we will do our best.”

Pakistan batsman Babar Azam, who shone in their 4-0 series defeat by England this month, continued his excellent form with the bat ahead of the World Cup by scoring 112 off 108 balls but his team were restricted to a below-par 262 in 47.5 overs.
