Day 4 As it happened: Just when Afghanistan thought they will run through the Bangladesh lower-order, rain came crashing down to end their hopes of winning the match. Weather has forced the match into the final day but as things stand, it still seems like a victory for the away side. Bangladesh need 262 to win while Afghanistan need just four wickets. Shakib Al Hasan has held on end but he is slowing running out of partners. Rashid Khan was once again the pick of bowlers as he scalped three wickets while Zahir Khan snared two.
Day 3 Round-up: Ibrahim Zadran and Asghar Afghan hit half-centuries while Rashid Khan played a quick cameo after claiming five wickets in an innings, as Afghanistan took command in the one-off Test against Bangladesh in Chittagong on Saturday. The visitors -- playing only their third Test in history -- reached 237-8 at stumps on the third day, setting a huge target for Bangladesh by taking an overall lead of 374 runs. Debutant Zadran hit highest 87 off 208 balls for Afghanistan in the second innings while former skipper Afghan made 50 off 108 balls, his second fifty, adding to Bangladesh’s frustration. Rashid added 24 off 22 balls before wicketkeeper-batsman Afsar Zazai’s unbeaten 34 runs extended Afghanistan’s lead.
