Fall of wickets: 1-6 (Zakir Hasan, 1.1 ov), 2-218 (Mahmudul Hasan Joy, 44.1 ov), 3-256 (Mominul Haque, 52.1 ov), 4-271 (Najmul Hossain Shanto, 57.6 ov), 5-290 (Litton Das, 63.1 ov), 6-373 (Mehidy Hasan Miraz, 82.2 ov), 7-375 (Mushfiqur Rahim, 83.1 ov), 8-375 (Taijul Islam, 83.3 ov), 9-377 (Taskin Ahmed, 84.4 ov), 10-382 (Shoriful Islam, 85.6 ov) • DRS
82.2 to Mehidy Hasan Miraz, Spooned without checking the bat and it pops to backward point for a low catch. Mehidy grimaces after he looks at Hamza lunge to his right and take it fingers pointing up while falling on his back. It was overpitched around sixth stump. Mehidy reached out and tried to punch it but was a tad too early on the shot. He suggested with a gesticulation that it might have moved away slightly. 373/6
84.4 to Taskin Ahmed, Big appeal for LBW is upheld. Taskin reviews with Bangladesh having all their reviews in hand but that looked out. It was a very full ball, swung in and beat the straight drive that tried to forge into an on drive to cope with the swing. It missed the bat and hit the knee roll of the back pad. Pitching around middle and hitting middle three-fourth of the way up.. 377/9
1.1 to Zakir Hasan, Celebrappeal from Masood for a caught behind, Ump says no. Afghanistan review, a couple of laughs and cheers right after. Ultra-Edge shows a small spike with the ball next to the outside edge. Decision overturned and Masood strikes first ball. It was on a length, landed in line with the stumps and moved away sharply and Zakir tried to block it with a straight bat. The ball just kissed the edge before Afsar Zazai took a dolly.. 6/1
52.1 to Mominul Haque, Shortens his length, outside leg stump, strangled down the leg side and Masood is appealing for caught behind with vigour. Masood looks very confident and he has convinced his captain to go upstairs. Turns out to be a spot-on decision, there is a tiny deflection on the ultra-edge and Mominul starts taking the long walk back into the pavilion. This is exactly what Afghanistan needed! Superb start to the third session. 256/3
83.1 to Mushfiqur Rahim, Mushfiqur fends the short ball straight to slip! It landed outside off and jumped up. The batter tried to tap it into the ground on the off side, but his bottom hand came off in reflex but not before the ball brushed it just before it lost contact. The ball ballooned off the shoulder of the bat to Nasir at third slip. Both overnight batters are now gone. 375/7
83.3 to Taijul Islam, Flicked to short leg where Abdul Malik takes a sharp catch to the left. Length ball on the body has Taijul try to work away on the leg side. Maybe he was softened up after the last ball, he tried to nurdle it away. It went around shoulder height and at an easy pace. It helped Malik not the eyes off the ball and get his hands across to cup the ball. 375/8
85.6 to Shoriful Islam, Through the defence, stumps rattled and Masood has five-for on debut. He prays on the turf and is congratulated by cheerful team-mates. It was a full ball that was angling away before landing and straightened after, Shoriful tried to push it straight and it beat him on the inside edge. 382/10
63.1 to Litton Das, Crackerjack! Bowls a terrific wrong'un on a full length and it spun away late, a tentative poke and he edges it to Ibrahim at first slip, undone by the flight. Litton's ebullience lasted 15 deliveries. That's a good breakthrough for Afghanistan because he is a dangerous customer.. 290/5
57.6 to Najmul Hossain Shanto, Dances down the track and miscues the skier! Tossed up on a length, gets a little bit of turn into the batter, he saunters to the pitch of the ball but didn't get the distance and departs after a mammoth innings of 146. Shanto was looking to get to 150 in style but just couldn't execute the shot well as Nasir Jamal pouches the catch safely at deep midwicket. Skewed straight up and the fielder didn't have to move much to gobble it up. This is turning out to be a good session for Afghanistan; they have already got two wickets in this session.. 271/4
44.1 to Mahmudul Hasan Joy, Afghanistan finally gets the breakthrough! Tossed up, spinning away outside off, tries to scythes this away but loses his balance and is a bit late on the cut as Ibrahim hangs onto it brilliantly in the slip cordon. The massive 212 partnership is broken!. 218/2

5.2 to Ibrahim Zadran, Shoriful strikes! Bangladesh have their first wicket. Full length delivery around offstump, angling away from the batter, Ibrahim goes back and pokes at it. Keeper takes a comfortable catch. 18/1
13.1 to Hashmatullah Shahidi, Shoriful gets more extra bounce, ball balloons off the shoulder of the bat. Mehidy takes a jumping catch. It was a length ball that angled in towards fourth stump, it reared up and Shahidi tried to block it straight. His bat couldn't rise with the bounce and he ended up playing it low. The back hand came off the handle and the ball rose off the shoulder. Mehidy jumped at the right moment and plucked it at fourth slip. 51/4
6.5 to Abdul Malik, Extra bounce does it again! Ebadot brings out his salute-celebration. Short delivery pitched outside off stump, Abdul tries to go on backfoot and get his bat on it as the ball kisses his gloves and goes to third slip where the fielder bends forward and takes an excellent low catch. Looked like it forced the batter to play some shot. Third umpire confirms that the catch is taken cleanly. Malik departs for 17 and Ebadot has a wicket in his first over. 24/2
10.4 to Rahmat Shah, Soft dismissal. Once again it's the short ball that fetched him the wicket. Pitched outside off, Rahmat tries to hit this across the line but extra bounce and a half-hearted shot meant the ball didn't go past the midwicket fielder. Taskin takes a simple catch to give Ebadot his second wicket of the day. 35/3
25.2 to Afsar Zazai, Oh that's what Ebadot can do! Afsar has given this wicket away. Short ball around off and middle, Afsar looks to pull this away over square leg, timing was alright but there wasn't much power to it. Shoriful in the deep goes back a bit and completes the catch. 116/6
29.5 to Amir Hamza, What a catch by Mominul . A single-handed catch at short leg. That's what good fielders do, they anticipate the catch. Ebadot sticks to his short ball plan and Hamza falls for the trap. Looks to defend and edges to short leg where the fielder dives to his left and completes the catch. Wicket No.4 for Ebadot. 128/7
33.2 to Yamin Ahmadzai, A perfect left-armer's delivery. Full length around offstump, there is a bit of turn and bounce to this delivery, the batter looks to defend, gets an outside edge and is caught behind by the keeper.. 140/8
37.4 to Nijat Masood, Sharp catch by Zakir at silly mid-off. He was in front with silly point to his left. He went low and took it well. It was a length ball that was deadbatted from the sticker. It went low in the air, unfortunately for Masood, it went in the fielder's direction. Masood's hard hands didn't help. Zakir threw the ball hard into the ground in celebrations. 146/9
24.5 to Nasir Jamal, Mehidy has gets his first wicket! Jamal reviews it. Fuller outside offstump, turns in sharply after pitching in and hits the front pad as the batter looks to defend. UltraEdge confirms that there is no bat involved. Umpire's call as the ball hits the legstump, so the on-field decision remains as out. Jamal walks back. 116/5
38.6 to Karim Janat, Mehidy gets his 150th Test wicket, helps Bangladesh secure a 236-run lead. Janat, probably in a bid to retain strike, marched down the pitch and realised that the ball was on a back of length and he was too far to go for a big shot. He tried to nudge it square in the last second. The ball was outside the line of the bat. Beat him and he was stumped to make Mehidy the third Bangladesh bowler to pick up 150 Test wickets.. 146/10

1.6 to Mahmudul Hasan Joy, Edge, ball deflects off the keeper's gloves to first slip! Ball landed on the edge between full and length around off stump and turned away. Joy tried to push it towards cover but it took a thin edge. Zazai's gloves swooshed to the right but only deflected the ball, it ballooned to Zadran for a dolly. Hamza has luck in his favour which hasn't been the case for his team-mates in the two overs bowled thus far.. 18/1
53.1 to Najmul Hossain Shanto, Appeal for a bump ball. That's be a marshmallow of a soft dismissal if it's out. Sent upstairs. It's a very full ball in front of the boot. The ball has landed just before he scooped it off the ground. Third umpire says it's went off the pad. It ballooned to midwicket's right, who ran a couple steps and took an easy catch. Shanto tried to flick it for a single but ended up being a victim of a marshmallow of a soft dismissal. His finishes with 270 runs for the match.. 274/3
53.4 to Mushfiqur Rahim, Mushfiqur goes for the reverse, ball pops up off the glove to slip. Zahir was brave to keep the pace low after being thumped for a six. It was an 82kph ball to which the batter switched the stance but not the grip. He swiped the bat and looked to go fine but it rose more than what he expected. 282/4

0.1 to Ibrahim Zadran, LBW appeal is upheld, Shoriful and Co are celebrating. Zadran reviews. It was a full ball that beat the flick and hit the bat pad. It might have pitched outside leg but looked very close. The full ball swung in a bit and hit the front pad, in front of the shin, well before the bat came close. The ball is pitching on leg and is projected to be hitting leg stump. Golden duck to start a 661-run chase Shoriful was pumped right after the decision was made, sent out loud roars. Long, despondent walk back for Zadran. 0/1
18.1 to Afsar Zazai, Edged and gone! Short of good length outside off, the ball straightens after pitching as Afsar reaches out for it and he gets a thick edge to Mehidy Hasan at gully. The change in angle works immediately for Shoriful who has his second of the innings. 65/4
20.5 to Bahir Shah, Change of angle works again! It's another short ball, on middle, and it leaps up. He plays at it and gets an edge to Taijul Islam, who takes a good catch in the cordon! That was dying on him, but he gets his hands under the ball and holds on to end the debutant Bahir Shah's innings. 78/5
1.5 to Abdul Malik, Malik goes for the cover drive, gets nicked off. Opposite to the last ball, this time it was the batters who had a long chat and ran out of time. Pitched up outside off, Malik went with hard hands on the drive. Tickled it to the keeper. Malik tried convincing Rahmat into a review but the latter didn't budge. 7/2
24.6 to Rahmat Shah, Gone! He could have let this go. Afghanistan are in deep trouble now. Short of length delivery outside off, there is some bounce there, Rahmat pokes on the back foot and outside edges to keeper. 91/6
26.3 to Karim Janat, What a delivery! Short of length ball pitched outside offstump, this one stays low, Janat looks to defend but the ball nips back in and takes his offstump. Taskin gets two in two overs. 98/7
32.1 to Yamin Ahmadzai, Taken! Fuller outside off stump, drives to short cover where Mushfiqur leaps in front and takes a good low catch to dismiss Ahmadzai. 110/9
Short ball on legstump, Zahir moves across swiftly and gets hit on his elbow as he tries to duck. Looks like he is in pain. In comes physio. Zahir has retired hurt and that means Bangladesh clinch the Test match by 546 runs.. 115/9
31.3 to Amir Hamza, Is that out? Bangladesh review it immediately after the umpire said it was not out. Full outside off, turns in, Hamza goes for a pull. The ball hits his right glove and then his helmet as Mominul completes the catch at short leg. Replays confirm that it indeed came off his glove. Bangladesh two wickets away from the victory. 106/8
13.3 to Nasir Jamal, That's a peach! And the finger goes up! Angling in and pitching on a length just outside off and the ball straightens just enough to take the outside edge as Jamal looks to defend. Simple catch for Litton and Ebadot is pumped. First wicket of the day, and the third down for Afghanistan. 48/3
