commentary

That's all for today. Bangladesh will have to bounce back immediately if they are to keep the series alive. Until next time, it's goodbye from Sagar Chawla on behalf of Abhinand Raghavendran and our scorer Naga.

Rashid Khan, MoM: It was about keeping everything simple, what I've done in last two-three months. I don't have any specific plan. I keep it simple. Just to bowl little bit back of length, not too full. I'm just enjoying myself, that is the key thing. It was a good surface, ball was gripping, little bit dew was there. We have just played T20 League. That's the biggest stage. If you perform well there, it gives you the confidence.

Stanikzai, Afghanistan captain: Every series the first game is very important. Today, our batsmen played very well. That was enough runs on this wicket. I know my bowlers. Which time they will be good to bowl. Conditions were good for us. Want to thank the crowd.

Shakib, Bangladesh captain: Generally we bowled well, except for the last four overs which cost us the match. Giving away those many runs was not ideal. We have lot to do. Need to sit down and look at the areas which we need to improve. They're a good side, and they outplayed us in all three departments. Overall we have so many areas which we need to look at. When you're chasing 170-odd runs, you need to bat well. Credit to them the way they bowled. They've got some quality spinners.

23:23 Local Time, 17:53 GMT, 23:23 IST: Another game turned on its head by Afghanistan's spin wizard. Bangladesh were in control at 80/3 at the halfway mark, before Rashid Khan was introduced. With his first ball, he made Mushfiqur Rahim pay for his ludicrous reverse-sweep. With his second, he bamboozled Sabbir Rahman with a googly, and that was it for Bangladesh who couldn't find it within them to recover. Of course, it was Afghanistan's late dash with the bat, plundering 52 runs in the last three overs, which allowed Stanikzai to hold Rashid back for the final ten overs and didn't allow Bangladesh the liberty to just play him off.

There are three fielders trying to get under it, at the end of which Ghani comes out trumps despite a nudge from keeper Shahzad as he collided with him. Some playful shoving in celebration. Mahmudullah c Usman Ghani b Shapoor 29(25) [4s-3 6s-1]

Shapoor to Mahmudullah, THAT'S OUT!! Caught!!

Rashid Khan to Mahmudullah, no run, opens himself up for a leg-side heave, but doesn't pick the googly at all. He's startled as the ball rips in, beating him by a long way before deflecting off the pad towards short fine

Rashid Khan to Mosaddek Hossain, out Caught by Usman Ghani!! If there was a delivery to be slog-swept, this was it. But Hossain miscues it straight down the lap of long-on. The length of this googly was ideal to get under, but he gets it far too close to the bottom, and probably off the inside half as well. Mosaddek Hossain c Usman Ghani b Rashid Khan 14(23) [4s-1]

Rashid Khan to Mosaddek Hossain, THAT'S OUT!! Caught!!

Mujeeb to Mahmudullah, 1 run, Mahmudullah tries to put Mujeeb off his length by using his feet, but he's instead met with a delivery which is fired in quick and further shortened. Mahmudullah still looks to biff it down the ground, and is lucky that his timing is so horrible, that it falls well short of long-on
15.5
1
Mujeeb to Mosaddek Hossain, 1 run, again, it's on that back of length which is hard to slog. Hossain chops it to point for one

15.3

Mujeeb to Mahmudullah, no run, misses out on the slog-sweep. The length was there from Mujeeb, but the problem was that Mahmudullah had to fetch it from pretty wide of off. Fails to do so
15.2
0
Mujeeb to Mahmudullah, no run, darted in on a back of length, zips through sharply towards Mahmudullah who offers a lot of respect and defends
15.1

Shapoor to Mahmudullah, SIX, it's got to be him. If there's anyone capable of doing it for Bangladesh, it's Mahmudullah. Picks the off-cutter early, clears his front leg and lofts it over the wide long-off boundary
14.5
1
Shapoor to Mosaddek Hossain, 1 run, back of a length delivery just outside off, chopped to the left of backward point. Bit risky with the running but the fielder takes a little too much time
14.4

Shapoor to Mosaddek Hossain, no run, dipping full toss outside off, driven straight to cover. That was begging to be put away, but Hossain has missed out
14.3

Shapoor to Mosaddek Hossain, no run, back of a length delivery outside off, Hossain is beaten by the skid of the ball as he looks to cut. He's struggling out there and this game is slipping away from Bangladesh
