    0.1 unplayable! What a delivery to start with. The off stump is pegged back. A full house roars its approval. The delivery was unimprovable, landing on a length to draw him forward, shaping away through the air, and then going further off the pitch to beat his defensive poke and clatter into the stumps. 0/1
    1.4 slogged up high, and caught! Zazai played himself in last night, but he's in a rush to get going this time, aiming a huge slog at the first ball he faces from Shakib. Midwicket settles underneath it, and makes no mistake 10/2
    2.6 caught this time! Saifuddin digs this one in much shorter but Tarakai aims another big shot into the leg side. He gets a decent connection on his pull, but can't get it past Sabbir on the boundary. Afghanistan are three down early! 19/3
    16.2 the stand is broken, relief for Bangladesh! Saifuddin delivers a slow cutter, just outside off. Asghar aims for the heavens, but he gets rather too much underneath the shot, with more height than distance. Long on settles underneath it, and pouches the catch 119/5
    5.5 gone! Where was Najibullah trying to hit this one? It was an arm ball, slanted right across him, and he thrust his hands out into a drive. But he was much too early into the stroke, and the ball flew off the toe end, going almost straight up. Long off gets himself underneath it, and clings on to a steepling chance 40/4

    16.5 bowled him! Gulbadin's feet go nowhere and this quick length ball scuttles straight through his poking defence. Saifuddin's excellent evening with the ball continues 121/6

    0.2 leading edge and taken! It was the straighter one, Liton pressed half forward and reached out with his hands to try and loft it across the line, only managing to offer a simple catch to cover. What a start for Afghanistan 0/1
    1.5 Mushfiqur tries to get funky and pays the price! It was full on off stump, Mushfiqur walked across and went down on one knee to scoop it over short fine but missed it completely as it crashed into the stump 11/2
    4.2 Rashid Khan is pumped as he takes a simple catch to see the back of Shakib! Shakib was backing away again, he followed him but the ball straightened a little as Shakib tried to swing it away to the leg side, only managing a leading edge to mid-on 31/3
    13.2 another leg cutter and this one does the trick! Mahmudullah advanced again, Gulbadin held the length back and took pace off, made him reach for it way in front of his body and he had no control over the stroke only managing to get far enough as deep midwicket, who did not have to move to take that 90/5
    4.6 Mujeeb's running through Bangladesh here as he traps Soumya Sarkar plumb in front! Straighter one, flat trajectory but not very short, Soumya makes the mistake of going back as the ball skids on and keeps gathering pace to pin him in front 32/4
    14.3 length around off, he came down to launch him over the leg side, only managed to drag it straight down deep midwicket's throat. Struggled to get a move on all innings and that's Mujeeb's fourth 95/6
    17.1 slower ball full outside off, he gets under it and strikes it flat and hard towards long-off, where the fielder keeps his head judges it to perfection with his feet just inches from the rope and with the young man, who fought spiritedly again gone, Afghanistan can probably breathe easier 115/7
    18.3 googly and through him! Pitched outside off, the idea was right as he went for the slog sweep, the execution was poor as he missed it completely 124/9
    18.1 length around middle, has an almighty swing but gets a top edge that goes high into the night sky, Rashid runs back, keeping his eyes on the ball throughout, settles under it and takes it calmly before tossing it back in the air in celebration, Made it look easy, it wasn't 120/8
