On Tuesday, left arm sling Nasum Ahmed registered and led his career highs in T20 cricket Bangladesh to an emphatic 23-run win against Australia at the start of the series in Dhaka.
Nasums 4/19 helped Bangladesh dismiss Australia for 108 while defending a goal of 132. With this victory, the hosts have taken a 1-0 lead in the five-game series.
