Just brilliant from Afghanistan. Had 18.3 overs to get 4 wickets with 2 batsmen and did it with overs to spare. Magnificent game for @rashidkhan_19 but how good was everyone else. Their great story continues.

Shakib was disappointed with the wicket, hope he is more disappointed with how Bangladesh need a deck to win at home. Grow your skills, home advantage is fine but if it is like this, can come back to bite you. The rivalry grows between them and Afghanistan.

Remember watching Rashid bowl in his first Test match and people being all skeptical about him bowling with the red ball and saying that he might not be cut out for the longest format.
Here he is now leading his team to a glorious Test win as captain. Brilliant! #BANvAFG

Afghanistan beat Bangladesh by 224 runs.
Rashid Khan had an excellent Test match. In his first Test as a captain he took 11 wickets and also scored a fifty. No one had ever taken 10 wickets in his first Test as a captain#BANvAFG
