  • 8:52 PM (IST)

    BAN vs AFG: Mahmudullah is out!

    BAN 89/6 (15.4)

  • 20:43 (IST)

    BAN vs AFG: FOUR!

    PROHIBITION 83/5 (14.1)

  • 20:33 (IST)

  • 20:27 (IST)

    BAN vs AFG: Wicket!

    BAN 53/5 (10,3)

  • 20:18 (IST)

  • 20:02 (IST)

    BAN vs AFG: Wicket!

    Another bites the dust! Rashid Khan has fired Mushfiqur Rahim and Afghanistan is all over Bangladesh. It was another excellent LBW rating from the side helping them bring Bangladesh down to four.

    BAN 28/4 (6.2)

  • 19:58 (IST)

    BAN vs AFG: Wicket! Shakib is leaving

    Shakib Al Hasan is gone! The Bangladesh batters don’t learn and it is Mujeeb’s third wicket in the innings. The ball stayed low again and Shakib missed his drive quite a distance.

  • 19:52 (IST)

    BAN 17/2 (4.2)

  • 19:50 (IST)

    BAN vs AFG: Wicket!

    Mujeeb strikes again! That’s a brilliant review from Afghanistan. Mujeeb caught Anamul Haque for the punches, but the umpire was not convinced by the LBW appeal. Afghanistan decided to go up and when following the ball it turned out that it would have hit the stump of the leg. Anamul runs back on 5 of 14 balls.

    PROHIBITION 13/2 (4)

  • 19:39 (IST)

    BAN vs AFG: Wicket!
