"Before coming here, we had a camp in Abu Dhabi, that was one of the hottest games I have ever had. The dressing room would have felt more comfortable if I had stayed out".

Rashid's relentless attacking bowling had Mehidy Hasan (12) and Taijul Islam (0) flummoxed by googly.

Zaheer Khan of Afghanistan sent Saqib Al Hasan to the pavilion early, a big blow to Bangladesh's hopes.

Miraj took a review where umpires withheld the decision of dismissal.

The rapid rise of Afghanistan cricket team continues. There was a confusion of Taijul's out but Bangladesh had no review left.

As the fifth day's game began, Bangladesh had to block it for 18 overs but Zahir Khan dismissed him on the very first ball of the day, leaving them in a huge job to do.

"Soumya put his hand on his head after taking that run". For the visitors, it was like they came, fought and conquered everything easily although it was predicted that the Test would be finished on day fourth.

"It's been a while since we played our last Test match, but Afghanistan kept the pressure on us, credit goes to their hard work". We have given chances to our young players. It's a game we have to win. We have to improve in T20Is.


After getting test status previous year, Afghanistan lost its first match to India before beating Ireland by seven wickets at its base in Dehradrun, India.

"We had a 10-day preparation camp in Abu Dhabi". And the other is NCL.

Thereafter, the play on Day 5 resumed after more than a three-hour gap at 4:20pm.

"I think it will be ideal if I did not have to be the captain".


Nabi also spoke about how happy he was that the younger members of the team contributed to the win, adding that their intense training camp in Abu Dhabi paid dividends in the end. It was my dream to play Test cricket. "But the team is not in a good shape, so I understand that I have to lead to get it back on track". Otherwise, I am not really interested in leading in any format.

"It will be best if I didn't have to lead", Shakib told reporters after the match.

"I want to see the younger lot to take responsibility". We know Bangladesh. They prepared very well.
