    7.4 Nazmul Islam brings out his nagin celebration after winning a leg-before appeal from umpire Izatullah Safi. Shahzad is peeved, however. And he has good reason to be peeved: replays detect he had gloved a reverse-sweep onto the thigh pad. He has to go, though. He leaves with a wry smile. Lucky break for Nazmul. For those wondering, no DRS in this series 55/1
    8.5 chest-high short ball aimed the ribs, Ghani is through with his hook and lobs it behind off the glove. Mushfiqur completes the catch diving forward. Ghani goes for 19 off 26 balls 59/2
    12.5 on a length and outside off, Stanikzai looks to swing across the line. He ends up skying a catch to Sabbir, the sub, at long-on 95/3

    14.1 Nabi chips it to the left of mid-off. Good length just a shade outside off, Nabi looks to drive it on the up. He has to check his shot and scoops it up to the left of Mahmudullah who completes a fine diving catch 101/4
    18.1 and Shakib gets his man. Full and fairly flat on off stump, and he couldn't get as much power behind the lofted drive as he wanted, hits it straight to the man at long-on 135/5
    19.2 dangled up wider outside off and Shafiq can't make clean contact. Had to reach for it to hit it over the covers, and it dipped and turned and skewed off the outer half of his bat, loops up for a simple catch at backward point 142/6

    5.5 back of a length, turning towards leg stump, and that's another run-out! What is happening here! Tucks this to short fine leg and again the non-striker, Liton, goes haring out of his crease. Why! The fielder, Aftab Alam, doesn't have much ground to cover. Picks it up and throws to Nabi, and he has the simplest of tasks left to flick off the bails at his end. Bangladesh are committing suicide here 35/3
    2.4 down the track again, and this time he's popped a catch straight to extra-cover. Saw him coming, saw him making a bit of room, and bowled it wider outside off and a touch slower. Reached out to try and chip it over extra-cover, but only managed to hit it straight to the man 16/1
    5.2 gone, Bangladesh have lost their second! Liton swept this to the left of short fine leg and called for a single before realising the ball was too close to the fielder and sending his partner back. By then it was too late for Soumya - who was nowhere near getting back home when the bowler picked up the throw and flicked it underarm onto the stumps at his end 32/2
    19.1 Rashid has Mushfiqur holing out to deep square leg. What a gun bowler. Rashid pushes it through full on middle stump, Mushfiqur goes for his favourite slog-sweep but he does not get all of it. He hits it straight into the lap of Najibullah Zadran 137/5
    8.3 what a catch that is, Samiullah Shenwari! Full now, angling into off stump from wide of the crease, and Shakib drives it cleanly, flat, inside-out, and would have got four runs for it another day. Today, however, Shenwari flies to his right at extra-cover and is parallel to the ground as he plucks this catch one-handed. Outstanding 53/4
    19.6 SENSATIONAL effort at the edge of the long-on boundary from Shafiqullah. He was won it for Afghanistan. They whitewash Bangladesh 3-0! Another googly, but the length is shorter and outside off, hoicked away hard and flat to long-on. Will it go over the boundary? Nope. Shafiqullah leaps to his left and attempts to catch the ball. He can't catch it but manages to swat it into the field of play even as the ball swerves away from his reach. Then the ball somehow finds its way to wicketkeeper Shahzad, who breaks the bails, to run out Mahmudullah on the third. The third umpire is called in to see if Shafiqullah had stepped beyond the boundary when he flicked the ball back into the field of play. It is a matter of an inch, but he had not. And if Bangladesh had pilfered the third run, it would have been a tie. Shahzad does the nagin dance now. Go for it, champ. Rashid takes flight in joy. Celebrations in full swing in the Afghanistan camp. Madcap finish in Dehradun 144/6
