Rashid Khan spins Afghanistan to T20 series sweep over Bangladesh

Afghanistan vs Bangladesh

The series already in its bag, Afghanistan wasted a good start to be restricted to a modest 145 for six by Bangladesh in the third and final T20 global, here today. Also, the whole series between Ban vs. Afg is hosted in India by the Afghanistan cricket so that they can play well in their maiden Test against India.

Mujeeb has been economical in the two matches but hasn't been able to get many wickets. The cricket fraternity and fans had already severely lashed at out the team in the social media outlet and other platforms as the series defeat came to them as a tough pill to swallow. In the same ground all matches between them were executed.

Following their victory, this is what the winning skipper Asghar Stanikzai said at the post-match presentation, "We know our strengths, especially in T20I in both batting and bowling".

They will back themselves to make it 3 in 3 when they lock horns with Shakib's men in the 3rd T20I at the same venue.

"Rashid bowled really well, they have some world class spinners who are doing their job". All hopes of a good start fizzled away as senior statesman Tamim Iqbal succumbed to rising star Mujeeb Ur Rahman for just 5 runs. For instance, Samiullah Shenwari, who leads the batting charts, had a strike rate of 200 in the first match, hitting out at the death to finish with 36.

The Tigers were restricted to 144 for the loss of six wickets, with wicketkeeper-batsman Mushfiqur Rahim top-scoring with a 37-ball 46, featuring seven fours.

He struck medium pacer Karim Janat five consecutive fours to score 21 runs in the penultimate over, bringing the equation down to nine runs in the final over. Abu Jayed sent Ghani packing for 19 runs.

After a 45-run win in the first game, they picked up a six-wicket win in the second, and it was again their all-star spin attack that set things up. Rashid Khan with 7 wickets in two T20Is has proven to be a huge asset for the Afghanistan team. With No 4 batsman Samiullah Shenwari remaining not out on 33, the designated home side lost six wickets in the allotted overs.

Rashid first had Shakib holing out to long-on before getting Tamim and Mosaddek off successive deliveries.

Mohammad Shahzad scored 26 runs, Usman Ghani 19 runs, Asghar Stanikzai 27 runs, Mohammad Nabi 3 runs, Najibullah Zadran 15 runs, Shafiqullah 4 runs, while Rashid Khan scored one run. In 38 runs opening partnership was broken. Though that was not the case as Abu Hider managed to keep the hat-trick ball way.
