1.6 to Mohammad Naim, carrom ball does the trick! Pitches on a length, just outside off. Naim pushes at it despite being nowhere to the pitch of the ball. The ball spins back in, through the big gap between bat and pad, and hits the leg stump. 7/1
3.6 to Anamul Haque, an appeal for lbw. Not given but Afghanistan have gone for the review. Looks out to me. Was short of length on the stumps and spinning in. Anamul bends his back leg as he looks to pull-sweep it. Misses. The ball-tracking shows it hit him in front of middle and leg and would have gone on to hit the leg stump. Bangladesh lose their second wicket. 13/2
5.2 to Shakib Al Hasan, Mujeeb gets his third. Another left-hander bowled through the gate with the carrom ball. Shakib backs away to give him some room and looks to smash it down the ground. Misses it altogether and the ball clatters into middle and leg stump. 24/3
Rashid Khan402235.5081000
6.2 to Mushfiqur Rahim, another googly. Comes on the front foot to defend but is beaten on the inside edge and is rapped on the front pad. A loud appeal for lbw but not given. Afghanistan have sent this upstairs. No bat involved, but was it spinning down the leg side? The ball tracking says no. The impact was in front of the middle stump and it would have clattered into the leg stump. Mushfiqur walks back. Bangladesh reeling at 28 for 4. 28/4
10.3 to Afif Hossain, given lbw, and reviewed. A googly, pitching on leg and spinning away. The batter was caught on the back foot and was late in bringing the bat down. Hit him just below the knee roll. The replay shows it pitched on middle and leg, hit the batter in front of middle and was going to hit middle and off. Half the Bangladesh side is back in the pavilion. 53/5
15.4 to Mahmudullah, full around off, it's another legbreak from Rashid. Mahmudullah goes for the slog sweep but gets more of a top edge. Ibrahim Zadran runs in from deep midwicket, dives forward and completes the catch. 89/6

Shakib Al Hasan401313.25120000
4.1 to Rahmanullah Gurbaz, Gurbaz is gone stumped! The pressure was beginning to tell, and Gurbaz is the first to lose his head. He comes down the ground but Shakib sees it early, and fires it shorter and flatter. Mushfiqur collects this quite low and breaks the stumps.. 15/1

Mosaddek Hossain2.301214.8080100
9.2 to Hazratullah Zazai, And this time he's got him! Zazai goes for the sweep, and misses it completely. He's struck flush on the back thigh pad in front of middle and leg to one that was pushed through by Mosaddek. Zazai reviews. Afghanistan retain a review as it's umpire's call, but Zazai has to go as this is shown to be clipping leg stump.. 45/2
Mohammad Saifuddin2027113.5032210
12.6 to Mohammad Nabi, length ball, angling in and it's given LBW! Nabi thinks about it but doesn't review. This is the off cutter, and it's hit him right in front of the stumps, going to knock down the stumps half way up. Bangladesh right on top here.. 62/3
