4.55 pm Afghanistan said they were under no pressure and they did play like that, the only thing is that they refused to learn from their mistakes. And boy were there many! The pitch offered a bit of turn and bounce and the Bangladesh spinners came into their own wonderfully well. Shakib and Razzak were particularly good and have forced Afghanistan to their lowest ever T20 total. Stay with us as we bring you the chase in about 10 minutes

chotu: "keepers should learn something from the Mark Boucher's incident. #wearhelmets"

Riaz: "Really disappointed with Afghanistan! I thought they were good in T20 matches. Sad to see them all out at 72. Did they not practice against spin??"

"It was helping a bit and there was turn there. You expect that in subcontinent," says Abdur Razzak, "I tried to bowl in the right channel and the extra bounce helped. We weren't under the pressure, the media said that. This is cricket and anything can happen, but we'll try to do our best"

Shakib Al Hasan to Shapoor Zadran, OUT, everyone's on the floor after this! Shapoor goes down the track against the slow bowler and misses the flighted ball completely. Turns to smack into middle stump. Shapoor had lost his balance and went down. Mushi, behind the stumps, is struck by the ball in his eye. The physio has a hand around him as the players walk off. Seemed ugly, but I hope he's alright

Shapoor Zadran b Shakib Al Hasan 1 (13m 11b 0x4 0x6) SR: 9.09

Farhad Reza to Dawlat Zadran, OUT, caught as he was backpedaling from cover. This was slower and fuller with a bit of width to entice him and Dawlat could not help himself. Cleared his front leg and searched for the cover boundary to no avail
