46.6Saifuddin to Rahman

W
OUT! KABOOM! Saifuddin gets the last one. Shinwari is denied a half ton. Mujeeb swings blindly to this length ball on the stumps. He misses by a long way and the furniture behind is disturbed. BANGLADESH WIN BY 62 RUNS!

Fuller and on off, this is hit to covers.

46.3Saifuddin to Shinwari

FOUR! That is fiercely struck! Full and on off, Shinwari smashes it back past the bowler who rightly takes his leg out of the way. Shakib runs to his right and dives but fails to stop it.

45.4Rahman to Zadran

W
OUT! EDGED AND TAKEN! This was always on the cards! Bangladesh a wicket away now. Mustafizur bowls it on a back of a length around off, this straightens. Zadran looks to push at it but the ball straightens, takes the outside edge and goes into the hands of Rahim. The keeper does not put in a confident appeal but the bowler does and the umpire raises the finger.

44.6Hasan to Zadran

0
A dot to end a brilliant spell by Shakib! He gives it air on off, Zadran strokes it to covers. A standing ovation for him as he takes his cap. A well-deserved one. He ends with figures of 10-1-29-5.

0
Almost another! This lands around off and slants away. Zadran looks to push at it but gets beaten.

43.3Rahman to Khan

W
OUT! Another one bites the dust! Just as my colleague says that the Fizz is running out of Fizz, he strikes. Mustafizur bowls it short and on middle, Rashid looks to pull. The ball hurries onto him, it hits the higher portion of the bat and lobs to the man at short mid-wicket. Mashrafe takes a dolly. Bangladesh two wickets away now.

Floats it up on middle, Shinwari looks to work it on the leg side but closes the face of the bat early, a soft leading edge to point for one. Just the five runs and a wicket from the over, an important wicket. 74 needed in 42.

42.5Hasan to Khan

1
Punched off the back foot by the batsman. The batsmen have run through for a single.

42.4Hasan to Zadran

W
OUT! STUMPED! Any guesses who provides the breakthrough when Bangladesh needed one? There could be only one man at the moment, Shakib Al Hasan. What can this guy not do right now? Brilliant with the bat and now a match-winning spell. He gets his fifer. His second in ODIs. Clever bowling! He sees Zadran come down the track and fires it outside off. NZ swings but is beaten by pace. Rahim makes no mistake behind. A good partnership comes to an end, this stand surely got Bangladesh worried a little.

Top edge but safe! Zadran looks to play the slog sweep, he tries to drag it with the turn from outside off. There is extra bounce though. It takes the top edge and lands in no man's land in the short third man region. One taken.

41.6Saifuddin to Zadran

Full and on the pads, SS looks to flick but misses to get hit on the pads. The ball rolls on the leg side. A leg bye is taken.

41.4Saifuddin to Zadran

1
Slightly short and around off, Zadran plays it late towards short third man for one. Fifty-run stand up between the two. They have revived Afghanistan's hopes here. Still a long way to go. 81 more needed in 50 balls.

41.3Saifuddin to Zadran

2
A yorker on off, Zadran jams it out towards mid-wicket and this time there is two.

41.2Saifuddin to Shinwari

41.1Saifuddin to Zadran

Slower one on middle, this is hit down to long on for one.

40.6Hasan to Shinwari

SIX! First of the innings. Tossed up outside off, Shinwari dances down the track and lofts it up and over the long on fence for a maximum. Is there still life in the game?

Howzzat? The umpire shakes his head. This is bowled outside off, Shinwari looks to play the sweep but misses to get hit on the pads. An appeal but the impact is outside off. Hawk Eye suggests the same.

39.5Saifuddin to Shinwari

WD
The slower one does not come off nicely! It is short and way down the leg side. Wided.
