Khan spins Afghanistan to T20 series sweep over Bangladesh

Afghanistan won the toss and elected to bat first in the final match of the 3-game series and elected to bat first.

Bangladesh have been let down by their batting on both the occasions, after opting to chase in the series opener as well as when they tried to put runs on the board in game two, according to Cricbuzz report.

Still, they would hope that the likes of Shakib Al Hasan, Mahmudullah, Tamim Iqbal and Mushfiqur Rahim can motivate themselves once more to salvage some pride.

Bangladesh, who were 81 for three in the first 10 overs, could only muster 53 in the next 60 balls with the loss of five wickets.

On the night of Tuesday, Iqbal was the lone Bangladesh batsman to score big, but his 43 took 48 balls.

Mohammed Shahzad and Usman Ghani entertained the spectators with some clean hitting. The absence of star pacer Mustafizur Rahman has been dearly missed as well.

The leg-spinner was again in the thick of things bagging four wickets for just 12 runs. The final match will be played on Thursday and it has no significance as far as the result of the series is concerned. But the inability to rotate strike saw the run rate take a hit during this period.

Nabi then proceeded to remove Bangladesh wicketkeeper Mushfiqur Rahim for 22 as he was stumped by Mohammad Shahzad.

Skipper Sakib also lifted his game to finish with 1-16, which made him only the third all-rounder to pick 500 global wickets and score 10000 runs.

Requiring four from the final delivery, Ariful Haque launched Khan towards the long-on boundary only to see Shafiqullah leap into the air and make sure the ball did not clear the rope. While Bangladesh has seemed to have made it a habit of not finishing games, Afghanistan celebrated like there is no tomorrow.
