Ihsan shagiwal: "Every player in the cricket has a number on the back of their shirts. Just wondering how those numbers are assigned? Does anyone know?" -- There's no real method to assigning them, but this video reveals some interesting stories behind the numbers.

Nadeem: "What a great last two overs!" -- Yup, only 10 runs conceded. I definitely think more teams should bowl spin at the death on turning pitches.

MahneelMusa: "Apu [Nazmul] and Hider have been revelations for Bangladesh in this rather disappointing series. Hope Bangladesh stick on to them for long and actually develop their skills!"

9.40pm An excellent last over from Nazmul, either bowling too full to get under or slower and loopier and not full enough to drive with any certainty on a turning track. It keeps Afghanistan to below 150. It'll still be a difficult chase, though, on this pitch and against some top-quality spin.

Bangladesh's main bowlers did a pretty good job, but four overs of Mehidy, Soumya and Ariful went for 48 runs. The other 16 overs only cost them 97.

Nazmul Islam to Samiullah Shinwari, 1 run, full on off stump and the innings ends with an inside-out drive for a single to sweeper cover
