Rashid Khan to Ariful Haque, 2 runs, OUT, SENSATIONAL effort at the edge of the long-on boundary from Shafiqullah. He was won it for Afghanistan. They whitewash Bangladesh 3-0! Another googly, but the length is shorter and outside off, hoicked away hard and flat to long-on. Will it go over the boundary? Nope. Shafiqullah leaps to his left and attempts to catch the ball. He can't catch it but manages to swat it into the field of play even as the ball swerves away from his reach. Then the ball somehow finds its way to wicketkeeper Shahzad, who breaks the bails, to run out Mahmudullah on the third. The third umpire is called in to see if Shafiqullah had stepped beyond the boundary when he flicked the ball back into the field of play. It is a matter of an inch, but he had not. And if Bangladesh had pilfered the third run, it would have been a tie. Shahzad does the nagin dance now. Go for it, champ. Rashid takes flight in joy. Celebrations in full swing in the Afghanistan camp. Madcap finish in Dehradun

Mahmudullah run out (Shafiqullah/Mohammad Nabi/†Mohammad Shahzad) 45 (38b 3x4 2x6) SR: 118.42

Rashid Khan to Mushfiqur Rahim, OUT, Rashid has Mushfiqur holing out to deep square leg. What a gun bowler. Rashid pushes it through full on middle stump, Mushfiqur goes for his favourite slog-sweep but he does not get all of it. He hits it straight into the lap of Najibullah Zadran

Karim Janat to Shakib Al Hasan, OUT, what a catch that is, Samiullah Shenwari! Full now, angling into off stump from wide of the crease, and Shakib drives it cleanly, flat, inside-out, and would have got four runs for it another day. Today, however, Shenwari flies to his right at extra-cover and is parallel to the ground as he plucks this catch one-handed. Outstanding

Shakib Al Hasan c Samiullah Shinwari b Karim Janat 10 (9b 0x4 1x6) SR: 111.11

Mohammad Nabi to Mushfiqur Rahim, OUT, back of a length, turning towards leg stump, and that's another run-out! What is happening here! Tucks this to short fine leg and again the non-striker, Liton, goes haring out of his crease. Why! The fielder, Aftab Alam, doesn't have much ground to cover. Picks it up and throws to Nabi, and he has the simplest of tasks left to flick off the bails at his end. Bangladesh are committing suicide here

Liton Das run out (Aftab Alam/Mohammad Nabi) 12 (14b 1x4 0x6) SR: 85.71

Mohammad Nabi to Liton Das, OUT, gone, Bangladesh have lost their second! Liton swept this to the left of short fine leg and called for a single before realising the ball was too close to the fielder and sending his partner back. By then it was too late for Soumya - who was nowhere near getting back home when the bowler picked up the throw and flicked it underarm onto the stumps at his end

Soumya Sarkar run out (Karim Janat/Mohammad Nabi) 15 (13b 1x4 1x6) SR: 115.38

Mujeeb Ur Rahman to Tamim Iqbal, OUT, down the track again, and this time he's popped a catch straight to extra-cover. Saw him coming, saw him making a bit of room, and bowled it wider outside off and a touch slower. Reached out to try and chip it over extra-cover, but only managed to hit it straight to the man

Tamim Iqbal c sub (Darwish Rasooli) b Mujeeb Ur Rahman 5 (6b 1x4 0x6) SR: 83.33
