Rashid's all-round performance gives Afghanistan an edge after day two

Afghanistan resumed their innings from 271 for 5 on day two.

Asghar Afghan who had played an outstanding inning on day one was only able to add four runs to his overnight score as he was dismissed for 92. Afsar Zazai was also sent back to the dressing room soon but the Afghanistan captain Rashid Khan held the innings together for some time. His knock of 51 runs ensured that the visitors didn't have drastic collapse after some good batting performances on the first day.

For Bangladesh, Tajiul Islam picked up four wickets. Shakib Al Hasan and Nayeem Hasan picked up two wickets each while Mehidy Hasan and Mahmudullah picked up a wicket each.

Bangladesh didn't have a great start to the innings as opener Shadman Islam was sent back only after four balls in the innings.

Liton Das and Mominul Haque played their part in the rebuilding of the innings but Rashid Khan's spell changed everything for the visitors. By the time tea was called, Bangladesh had already lost five wickets with only 88 runs on the board. Things didn't get better after tea either. Even though Mominul Haque reached his fifty, Bangladesh soon slipped to 146 for 8. After this, Mosaddek Hossain and Taijul Islam batted for the last 15 overs in the day to ensure that hosts don't lose any more wickets.

Hossain was the aggressor in the partnership with an unbeaten 44 run knock. For Afghanistan, Rashid Khan picked up four wickets while Mohammad Nabi got two scalps. Qais Ahmad and Yamin Ahmadzai got a wicket each.
