Rashid shines after the rain as Afghanistan secure victory over Bangladesh”

Rashid took the last three wickets as Afghanistan completed the game with only 3.2 overs remaining. "The World Test Championship and T20 World Cup are up ahead, so we should plan for the next four years". After a delayed start, Bangladesh resumed their innings with Soumya Sarkar and Shakib Al Hasan. The credit of Afghanistan's majestic win goes to none other than Rashid Khan who singlehandedly scalped six wickets in the second innings to drive his squad towards victory.

Despite facing the delay at the beginning of the fifth day due to rain, Afghanistan didn't lose its momentum against the tigers.

Rashid later shattered all the hopes of the home side to draw the match when he dismissed Soumya Sarkar and created history to triumph the Test for Afghanistan.

Chasing a 398-run target, Bangladesh were bundled out for 173 in 61.4 overs. On the fourth delivery of the following over, the 26-year old inside edged a Rashid Khan delivery to be caught and short leg.

"Before coming here, we had a camp in Abu Dhabi, that was one of the hottest games I have ever had". Subsequently, in the 56th over of the innings, Taijul Islam inside-edged one onto his pads, and was wrongly adjudged LBW by Paul Wilson, with the lower order batsman not having the chance to challenge the call.

The all-rounder, who has retired from Test cricket, believes making Rashid Khan the skipper across formats will augur well for the team. Our focus too will now shift to the T20I series.

Afghanistan play their "dwelling" fits in India. Ibrahim Zadran, Afsar Zazai, Zahir Khan and Qais Ahmed also chipped in with handy contributions.

This time, chinaman bowler Zahir Khan delivered the first ball after the resumption, which made Afghan players ecstatic.

Meanwhile, Nabi also expressed his happiness for being able to finish his Test career in style.

Shakib trapped Ihsanullah Janat for four in the third ball of the innings and then dismissed first-innings centurion Rahmat Shah for a golden duck in the next ball.

"We have played the Inter-Continental Cup three times and we won twice and were the runners-up once".

UMPIRES: N.J. Llong (England) and P. Wilson (Australia). Rashid, who bagged the "Man of the Match" award picked up 11 wickets and scored a crucial fifty for Afghanistan.
