CHITTAGONG: Afghanistan beats Bangladesh by 224 runs in only test match played at Chittagong. Bangladesh bowled out for 173 while chasing a target of 398 runs.
According to details Captain Rashid Khan led from the front for Afghanistan and bowled them to victory on the final day of the rain-affected match which saw only 17 overs being bowled in which the visitors managed to grab the remaining four wickets to trigger joyous celebrations on the field. Rashid Khan picked up 11 wickets in a match and scored a valuable half century in first innings of the match.
The first session was completely wiped out by rain which and just 13 balls were possible after lunch as the rain returned to play spoilsport which meant that Afghanistan had only 18.3 overs to push for victory in the final session.
Be clear that Afghanistan only gained Test status last year and had played just two Tests before this – losing to India in their maiden match and beat Ireland in its only other Tests. On the other hand, this match was not a part of ICC Test Championship.
