The third game of the ODI World Cup 2023 between Bangladesh and Afghanistan is currently taking place at Himachal Pradesh Cricket Association Stadium in Dharamsala. This contest between the Asian teams was eagerly anticipated, and it certainly didn’t disappoint.
In the midst of this gripping contest, Rahmanullah Gurbaz, the young and dynamic Afghan batter, stole the spotlight with a breathtaking six that left spectators and cricket pundits in sheer amazement. The moment came during his innings when he faced off against Mustafizur Rahman, one of Bangladesh’s premier bowlers known for his variations and control.
Rahmanullah Gurbaz’s spectacular six
As Rahman prepared to face Mustafizur, the tension in the stadium was palpable. The bowler, known for his ability to deceive batters with his off-cutters and slower balls, had already made an impact in the match with his disciplined bowling. But Gurbaz was undeterred as he carefully watched the bowler’s run-up and the seam position, calculating his move meticulously.
The exciting moment took place on the first ball of the eighth over When Mustafizur bowled a good length delivery and Gurbaz pounced on it with extraordinary timing and precision. The right-handed batter skipped down the track a bit and lifted the white leather nonchalanty over long-on for a maximum.

Mustafizur gets the final word
Despite Gurbaz’s impressive six that momentarily put Mustafizur on the defensive, the seasoned Bangladesh fast bowler had a clever response. In the 26th over, the left-arm seamer managed to dismiss Gurbaz for 47, securing his first wicket of the match.
This crucial moment unfolded when Gurbaz advanced down the pitch, attempting to take on Mustafizur’s bowling. However, the bowler cleverly pitched the ball slightly wide outside the off-stump. Gurbaz had to stretch to reach it, resulting in a sliced shot towards deep point. Fielder Tanzid Hasan charged in from the boundary, executing a spectacular running catch to complete the dismissal.
