    10.4 loose shot and pays the price. It was a shortish ball that was angling away and Tamim wildly swings as he looks to slog it across the line. Gets a healthy outside edge and third man snaffles it 45/1
    12.1 another loose shot and another wicket. Comes down the track and the bowler makes the late adjustment by pulling his length back significantly. Sarkar is forced to drag the slog from outside off and is in no control of the shot whatsoever. Has to fetch it from way outside off and loses balance slightly as he does so. Gets a leading edge that is taken at covers. That looked very ugly 50/2
    25 Chopped on! The middle stump is knocked back as Naveen unleashes an animated fist pump. Back of a length and outside off, Mahmudullah's foot does not meet the pitch. He simply follows the ball with his hands. Aims a punch through the covers and ends up dragging it back onto the stumps. So, Naveen returns and breaks the thriving stand 111/3
    27.1 Mirpur has been hushed into silence as Mushfiq holes out to deep square leg. Naveen ran to his right, tumbled, but hung onto the catch. Tossed up outside off. Mushfiq turns to his favourite shot, the sweep, the top edge flies into Naveen's hands 122/4
    32 Nabi has his man now! This was the arm-ball from Nabi, snakes back in. Shakib is neither forward nor back. Rooted to the crease. Nabi beats the inside and pins him bang in front of middle. The finger went up almost instantly 138/5
    32.1 Sabbir's wicket adds to Bangladesh's slide. Googly, comes in, on a length. The batsman did not read it, attempting a pull and missing. Hits him in line with middle. No snick there 138/6

    34 Mashrafe steps out, Nabi held this back in the air outside off. He does not meet the pitch and softly chips a catch into the lap of mid-off. He sought to clear the fielder, but couldn't impart enough strength into the shot. Bangladesh seven down and sinking 141/7
    42.3 appeal for leg before and given. Flipper that holds its line after pitching on leg and middle and Taijul doesn't pick it up. Plays for the turn and misses and is rapped on the pads. That would have hit middle stump flush. Bangladesh briefly looked comfortable with the spinners out of the attack, but a wicket falls immediately after their reintroduction 165/8
    42.4 plumb again. Flipper again and the batsman doesn't read it. Only question was whether it pitched outside the leg stump, pitches marginally within and raps the batsman on th pads. No question of whether or not it would have hit the stumps. Rashid on a hat-trick 165/9
    49.2 what a way for the innings to end. That was a full ball and slammed extremely hard by Mosaddek. The ball is racing away to the boundary but a brilliant save is made at the sweeper cover fence. They didn't run the first run as hard thinking it would carry to the boundary, and Mosaddek pushes Rubel to come across for the second to retain strike. The bowler collects the throw without fuss and takes the bails off at the non-striker's end and Rubel is well short of his crease 208/10

    15.1 Shahzad finds Taskin at backward point. Shahzad backed away outside leg for a leg-side slog. The ball turns away from him. An outside edge flies into the hands of Taskin. Bangladesh in firm control in Mirpur. Looked highly ungainly 63/4
    3.4 Lobbed into the hands of Taijul! Tossed up outside off, not much turn. This delivery properly stops on the batsman. Nawroz Mangal checks his drive and chips it to the right of short extra-cover. Lolly-pop catch for Taijul 14/1
    4 What a lift for Bangladesh! Much slower through the air and drifts into the right-hander. Arm-ball raps Rahmat on the back pad in line with the stumps. Replays, though, detect an inside snick. Doesn't matter, the finger went up and Rahmat exits for a duck 14/2
    13.1 and he strikes with his first ball on ODI debut! Tossed up full, no turn, Shahidi plays right back to one he should have been right forward to. Beats the inside edge from round the wicket and pings him on the pad in front of middle 59/3
    40.3 Oh, Stanikzai has holed out to deep midwicket! Bangladesh have hope. Runs at the bowler and takes a length ball from outside off, heaved to the right of Sabbir. Mosaddek's night has got better. The glory shot goes wrong and drags Afghanistan back 174/6
    39.1 Mashrafe removes Nabi, but Afghanistan are ahead. Back of a length and swerves in after pitching outside off, strikes Nabi on the back thigh in front of off. Not sure if that would have hit off or bounced over 170/5
    49.3 Mossadek jumps and takes a good catch at backward point. Full toss on a set of stumps outside off, backed away and slapped in the air. Straight to the debutant. 208/8
    44.4 It's that man again: Shakib! He collects his 100th ODI wicket in Mirpur. Arm-ball, jerks into the right-hander. He is pinned to the crease and is trapped plumb in front of middle. This game is getting tighter. Strap on 189/7
