23.2 overs (2 Runs) Full and outside off again, Afghan reaches out, looks to paddle but gets it off the inner half of the bat. Just eludes a leaping Rahim and goes to fine leg. Two runs taken.

Asghar Afghan walks in at number 4, replacing Shahidi.
20.5 overs (0 Run) OUT! STUMPED! Mosaddek gets the second wicket for Bangladesh. Nicely bowled. Flighted outside off, Hashmatullah lunges out to drive but the ball pitches and spins away. Beats the outside edge and Rahim collects nicely, whipping the bails off. It is referred upstairs and replays show that Shahidi has not dragged his foot back in. This does not help Afghanistan. Both batsmen were trying to absorb the pressure but then one of those has not converted his start. 184 more needed from 175 balls.
Stumping appeal! Is that gone? Our colleague Louis is certain the batsman is a goner. It has been referred upstairs and just one replay should be enough. The foot has not come back in.
20.4 overs (1 Run) Outside off, punched off the back foot for a run.
20.3 overs (1 Run) Full on middle, worked through mid-wicket for a single.
20.2 overs (0 Run) RUN OUT MISSED! Mosaddek is not happy. Mortaza is not happy either. Sloppy from Liton Das. Shahidi pushes this towards covers and calls for a single. However, he then changes his mind. Naib has to change track, take a U-turn and when he does so, looks to be gone for all money. Liton Das gets to the ball and returns a wild throw, well away from the stumps, which means Mosaddek has to reach out to his right, collect, turn around and then whip the bails. Naib has dived in by that time. A straighter throw would have had Gulbadin.
20.1 overs (0 Run) Short and outside off, cut straight to point.
