Over 20 Bangladesh 144/6/Yes

So, that's it from us! Afghanistan cricket takes another step forward, a big step forward with this emphatic whitewash over Bangladesh. The Tigers will be disappointed with their outing in this series, especially how they fared with the bat. Plenty to work on for them. Anyway, we thank you for your company and hope you join us for future matches. In the meantime, you can switch tabs and catch all the action from the 1st Test between West Indies and Sri Lanka. Cheers!
Asghar Stanikzai says he's happy they won the series 3-0. Reckons this series has been a good preparation for the upcoming Test series against India. Feels all the players have been working very hard to improve Afghanistan cricket on the whole. Adds that everyone is doing their job in all the departments and as a result, everything falls in place. Thanks his board for the continued support and also thanks the crowd for their support throughout the series.
Shakib Al Hasan says his side performed better than the first two games so is disappointed they lost out tonight. Feels they restricted Afghanistan to a reasonable total and rues the middle overs where they leaked a few more runs than they would have liked. Applaus Rahim and Mahmudullah for their effort and says anything can happen in a T20 game as everything is so close.
The Afghans were terrific for the most part with the ball and in the field as well. They applied a lot of pressure on the Bangladeshi batsmen. Had someone from the top order managed to just a bit more, the outcome could have probably ended differently. Earlier in the evening, a solid start from the Afghan openers and some late hitting from the middle order saw them get to a total which eventually proved to be just enough.
With 9 needed off the final over, Rashid Khan proved once again why he's held in such high regard. He dismissed Rahim off the first ball and kept things really tight. But, on this night, even he needed some assistance and it came via some outstanding work in the field from Shafiq. If not for his heroics right at the end, Bangladesh would have won this game. A superb effort all around.
A cliffhanger of a contest has come to a close. It went right down to the wire but Afghanistan clinched the victory to whitewash Bangladesh 3-0 to take the series by storm. With a target of 146 in front of them, the Tigers did not get off to the best of starts. Were 35/3 inside the Powerplay and were looking down and out. But, Rahim and Mahmudullah stepped up to the plate and took it on their shoulders to put on a fight. That 19th over gave them a real impetus where Rahim scored 21 runs against Janat.

R Khan to A Haque, AFGHANISTAN WIN BY 1 RUN! But what drama on the final delivery. Oh, dear me! Dear me! Shafiqullah Shafiq, you absolute beauty. Talk about a stunning effort to win your side the match. Unbelievable stuff. Fuller in length around off, Haque lofts it down towards long on. Shafiq is the man there, he moves to his left and leaps to get his hands to the ball. He still has a lot of work to do as the ball starts to travel across the rope. He moves swiftly once again, stretches low and pulls it back in. Nabi from long off comes to the ball and throws it back in towards Shahzad. He collects the ball and whips the bails off as the batsmen are coming back for the third. Mahmudullah is the batsman who's out and Afghanistan celebrate. But, they are going to have to wait a moment as the umpire wants to check if it's a boundary or not. It's taken upstairs and the replays show that Shafiq managed to do just enough to keep the ball in. Phew!
Is that a boundary? Have Bangladesh won? Have Afghanistan pulled it off? Shafiqullah Shafiq the man in the limelight and it's over to the TV umpire to determine whether he's made a clean save or not. So close. Let's see what happens here...
19.5
R Khan to Mahmudullah, Quite full and quicker in pace, slogged through to deep mid-wicket for a single.
19.4
R Khan to A Haque, Loopy leg break around off, Haque plays it off the outer edge towards short third man for a run. Mahmudullah on strike now, 5 needed in 2. What's going to happen here?
19.3
R Khan to A Haque, Runs will be welcome no matter how they come by Bangladesh. Fuller outside off, Haque goes down to sweep and gets it off the under edge through the keeper's legs for a double.
19.2
R Khan to Mahmudullah, Googly on middle and leg, spinning in, Mahmudullah gets some bat on it as it goes down towards short fine leg. Quick run taken.
19.1
R Khan to M Rahim, OUT! Rashid Khan strikes off the very first ball! Mushfiqur Rahim holes out. His favourite shot, the momentum on his side and it's an unfortunate dismissal for his side. Tossed up on the stumps, Rahim gets down and slog sweeps. It's flat and right towards Najibullah out at deep mid-wicket, who dives forward and takes a superb catch.

Over 19 Bangladesh 137/4/No

Ariful Haque walks into the middle next.
Rashid Khan will bowl the final over. He has 8 to defend. All happening here. Going to a superb one, whichever way it goes.
18.6
K Janat to M Rahim, No! Just the single. But it's still a phenomenal over. 21 from it. Rahim digs out the yorker and keeps strike.
18.5
K Janat to M Rahim, FOUR! What a gem of a knock Rahim is playing here. Batting of the highest quality. Overpitched on off stump, Rahim gets low and brings out the reverse sweep. The placement is perfect as he beats the diving backward point fielder for the fifth boundary of the over. 6 in 6 coming up?
18.4
K Janat to M Rahim, FOUR! 4 boundaries in 4 balls. This is sensational from the veteran Mushfiqur Rahim. He's seeing his side home here. Lofts this full ball over mid off comfortably. 10 needed in 7 now.
18.3
K Janat to M Rahim, FOUR! Three in a row. This time it's too full, Rahim takes full advantage of it by staying leg side. He drills this past mid off and finds the fence.
18.2
K Janat to M Rahim, FOUR! Two in two for Rahim! This is stupendous batting. Shortish in length, Rahim goes across the line this time and pulls it through mid-wicket. Beats the man in the deep and sends it across the rope for a boundary.
18.1
K Janat to M Rahim, FOUR! Good start to the over for Bangladesh. Short and wide, Rahim flays this over point and finds the fence. Needs to push in this over, it's the crucial one.

Over 18 Bangladesh 116/4/No

17.4
R Khan to M Rahim, Shorter outside off, cut through to deep backward point for a run.

Over 17 Bangladesh 113/4/No

16.6
A Alam to Mahmudullah, FOUR!
16.5
A Alam to Mahmudullah, FOUR! Could very well be. Runs comes in a streaky manner on this occasion but it's all the same to the Tigers. Length ball and it takes the inside edge of Mahmudullah's bat. Shahzad dives to his left but can't stop it from making its way to the fence. The 50-run stand is up. 11 off the over, can he finish with a boundary?
16.4
A Alam to Mahmudullah, SIX! Another full toss and this time he pays the price for it. Mahmudullah backs away and swings across the line. Clears the mid-wicket boundary and gets a maximum. Is this the over that Bangladesh needed?
16.3
A Alam to Mahmudullah, Low full toss on middle stump, whipped through mid-wicket. Mahmudullah runs the first one hard and as a result manages to come back for the second.
16.2
A Alam to Mahmudullah, Short ball down the leg side, Mahmudullah goes for the big pull but misses. No caught behind given, which makes not giving it a wide a bit strange.
16.1
A Alam to M Rahim, Another leg bye. A length ball on the stumps, Rahim swings across the line and misses. It goes off the thigh pad on the off side as the batsmen change ends.

Over 16 Bangladesh 98/4/No

15.6
R Khan to M Rahim, Leg bye.
15.5
R Khan to Mahmudullah, Touch short outside off, steered to the left of backward point for a single.
15.4
R Khan to Mahmudullah, Quicker through the air, on off, hit right back at the bowler.
15.3
R Khan to M Rahim, Some air provided outside off, Rahim drags the sweep to deep mid-wicket and changes ends.
15.2
R Khan to M Rahim, Turning in from middle and leg, Rahim shuffles across to play the scoop shot this time but fails to connect.
15.1
R Khan to M Rahim, FOUR! Dangerous shot to play but he's executed it well. All about execution. Nicely done. Tossed right up there, Rahim quickly gets low, positions himself for the reverse sweep and places it between short third man and backward point for a boundary.
