Afghanistan beat Bangladesh by 25 runs
That's all we have from this match! We look forward to your company on Wednesday, 18th September, for the 4th match of the tri-series between Bangladesh and Zimbabwe. Do join us at 1830 local (1230 GMT) for all the action. Cheers!
Afghanistan skipper, Rashid Khan starts by saying that they recovered quite well after a sorry start. Praises the senior batsmen, Afghan and Nabi for taking the responsibility. Lauds the bowling of Mujeeb and tells that he bowled well in the last match as well but in this one, he was more accurate and hard to hit. He is happy to win the fourth game in a row against Bangladesh. Wants his team to take this momentum forward. Thanks the crowd for all the support before signing off.
MAN OF THE MATCH, MOHAMMAD NABI! He says that was a brilliant effort from his team. Adds that there was tension in the dressing room when they lost 4 early wickets. On asked about their decision of batting first, Nabi replies that the wicket looked good for batting and hence the decision. On his retirement from Tests, Nabi replies that he wants the youngsters to stand up in the red ball cricket as he wants to concentrate in the shorter formats. Smiles and cheekily complains that his skipper just gave him two overs but he is a happy man as the side has won the game.
Bangladesh skipper, Shakib Al Hasan says that they were brilliant in the first 10 overs with the ball. Admits that Afghanistan scored too many runs in the next 10 which cost them. Feels that they didn't bat well. Reminds about the no ball on which Asghar Afghan was dismissed and mentions that it changed the momentum. Tells that they wanted to be positive today but the result didn't go their way. Wants his team to cut down on extras.
Afghanistan bowled and fielding brilliantly. Mujeeb Ur Rahman was the star for them, picking four wickets and also getting his best bowling figures in T20Is. Rashid Khan and Gulbadin Naib also played their roles effectively and altogether it was a good team effort by them. Presentation coming up...
This match started on a wrong note for Afghanistan. They lost their first wicket on the very first ball of the match and were reduced to 41/4 in the Powerplay. But the fabulous knock by Mohammad Nabi coupled with his 79-run stand with Asghar Afghan took their total to a challenging 164. In defense, they returned the favour to Bangladesh by dismissing their four wickets inside the first six overs and the hosts never really recovered after that. There was a partnership between Mahmudullah and Sabbir Rahman but that didn't take care of the asking rate much and eventually it was a task too big for the batsmen to follow.
A commanding performance by Afghanistan! They have once again got the better of Bangladesh and are quickly becoming a thorn in their flesh. This is now the 12th consecutive T20I win for the Afghans, the longest winning streak for ant ream in Men's T20I cricket, surpassing their own streak of 11 matches that they achieved between years 2016 and 2017. Also, they have now won each of their last 21 T20I match in Asia. What dominance!

Fareed Ahmad To Mustafizur Rahman OUT!
OUT! AFGHANISTAN WIN BY 25 RUNS! Fareed has the last laugh in this battle. Once again he provides width outside off, Rahman rocks back and whacks it through the line. It's aerial and travels like a rocket but straight into the hands of Shafiq (sub) at sweeper cover. All over, a brilliant win for the Afghans.

Fareed Ahmad To Mustafizur Rahman

Gulbadin Naib To Afif Hossain OUT!
OUT! Brilliantly taken by Zadran at long off. The slower one works for Naib again as Afif has to walk back to the pavilion. No heroics from him tonight. This is slower one around off, Afif looks to power it over the long off fence but is a bit early into the shot. Zadran does well to hang on to it, very close to the fence. The third umpire checks if he has touched the fence as he pouches it but he is well inside. Excellently done.

Rashid Khan To Afif Hossain
NOT OUT! Review lost for Afghanistan. Eventful ball, this. A flatter leg spinner around leg, on the shorter side, Afif stays back to work it around but misses. He is rapped on the pads, Rashid appeals but the umpire is unmoved. Meanwhile, the batsmen attempt for a run and Rashid picks the ball to have an immediate shy at the bowler's end. He connects and appeals again for a run out. Not given that time but now Rashid has decided to refer for the lbw. The Ball Tracker shows that it pitched outside leg. Also, the replays further finds that Afif was well inside the crease while completing the leg bye.
Referral time again! Afif is the batsman in question once more. He has not been given out lbw and Afghanistan has reviewed it. Let's find out in the replays.

Rashid Khan To Afif Hossain
GLOVED IT! Tossed up ball landing on middle and spinning in a bit, Afif tries the reverse-batted shot but fails to middle it properly. He is thudded on the pads, they appeal and the umpire agrees. Hossain is sure that he has hit it and goes for the referral. Snicko detects his gloves.
Afif Hossain is given out lbw! He has taken the DRS! Glove again?

The fielding side appeals and it has been referred upstairs. The replay rolls in and the first frame is enough to tell that Rahman is safe. Also, one of the stumps is broken and they are getting it changed. Meanwhile, this delivery has been termed as a no ball for being very high, over the waist of the batsman. Free Hit coming up...
Run out appeal! It has been referred upstairs. Sabbir is found safe in the replays. The stumps though are broken and the umpires have called for a replacement.

Mujeeb Ur Rahman To Soumya Sarkar OUT!
OUT! Trapped in front! Twin wicket in this over has forced Bangladesh deep on the back foot. Mujeeb hurls in a quicker one in the line of the off stump and gets it to skid back into the left-hander. Sarkar tries to keep it out from the back foot but the ball stays low and strikes him on the pads. They appeal and the umpire agrees. Sarkar knows that he is a dead duck and immediately walks back without even thinking about the review. Afghanistan on top!

Mujeeb Ur Rahman To Shakib Al Hasan OUT!
OUT! Rashid roars as he pouches this one towards mid on. The altercation before the start of this over between both the captains has certainly put off Shakib. He tries to dominate the bowler there but instead gets dominated. A shortish length ball, following the batsman down the leg side, Shakib hangs deep inside the crease for a big shot but mistimes his shot badly. It balloons high towards mid on where Rashid grabs the skier safely and is all pumped up. Bangladesh in all sorts of trouble early on. 134 needed off 94 balls.

Bangs one short around off, Mahmudullah pushes it right of Mujeeb to take a run.
Some war of words going on! It's between the two superstars. Rashid and Shakib are arguing about something and the umpire intervenes. The crowd is also getting into it. Not sure about the exact reason.

Fareed Ahmad To Mushfiqur Rahim OUT!
OUT! Rahim tries to be cheeky and pays the price for it. The off stump is disturbed and Fareed lets out a big roar in delight. A length ball landing around off, Rahim shuffles across the stumps to attempt for a paddle scoop but fails to middle his shot. It probably takes some part of his pads before going onto the stumps. 154 runs needed in 109 balls!

Mujeeb Ur Rahman To Liton Das OUT!
OUT! Early blow to Bangladesh and the crowd has gone quiet. A knuckle ball by Mujeeb around off, it lands full and straightens a bit. Das expects it to come into him and hence opts for a shot across the line over the leg side. But it catches the leading half of his bat and goes up in the air. Najeeb Tarakai is under that catch at covers.
