OUT! Caught. Rashid Khan to Soumya Sarkar. Leg spinner length ball, middle stump on the front foot defending, bat-pad to short leg, by Zadran. Who else but that man. When Afghanistan need something special they turn to Rashid and he always delivers. Perfectly bowled on the stumps making Sarkar play and with a hint of turn off the wicket the inside edge is found. Short leg clings on to the ball and the wild celebrations start.What a Test match we have had and a fitting way for Mohammad Nabi to end his red ball career. There have been ups and downs but eventually the best team came out on top. Bangladesh tried everything in the final few overs but nothing was going to stop the Afghans, not even the weather, from clinching victory after they had played so well for the previous four days.Plenty of stand-out performances for them. Not just a maiden century for Rahmat Shah, but an impressive 87 from their young opener Ibrahim Zadran as well as 11 wickets in the match for Rashid Khan. Outstanding game of cricket and Afghanistan have shown they are no pushovers in Tests.

FOUR! Rashid Khan to Mominul Haque. Leg spinner half volley, outside off stump on the front foot flick, well timed in the air under control past long on for 4 runs. Uses the wrists in style. Clipped off his toes and the balance is perfect. Couple of bounces and into the rope.

FOUR! Mohammad Nabi to Mominul Haque. Off break length ball, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, well timed in the air under control past deep mid wicket for 4 runs. So quick to pick up on this length. Goes deep in the crease and since he is a small man the length is easier to play as he can get under it.
