Bangladesh vs Afghanistan One-Off Test Day 2 Highlights:
Bangladesh see out the day without further damage. Mosaddek's unbeaten 44 giving this innings a semblance of a fightback. This is the 2nd highest individual score in this innings. Taijul (14*) also survives to see the day through. Bangladesh end the day at 194/8, trailing Afghanistan by another 148 runs.
Mosaddek keeps Bangla flag flying
Mosaddek Hossain is keeping Bangladesh alive in these final stages of Day 2. This is a brave rearguard effort from him. Almost 70 runs have been added since the fall of Mahmudullah, when we thought we would see the Bangladesh lower order folding without fight.
Bangladesh in deep trouble
Mahmudullah's gone and Rashid Khan claimed another wicket. This is his fourth. Bangladesh are in deep trouble as they are reeling at 104/6 and trailed by 238 runs.
100 up for Bangladesh
100 up for Bangladesh in 34.5 overs with Mahmudullah (7) and Mominul (32) are on the crease. Bangladesh trail by 242 runs.
Afghans stand ahead at Tea
Nabi started things off by removing an obdurate Soumya Sarkar from the crease with one that rushed in to hit his pads. Liton Das appeared to have settled, but then misread the length of a Rashid Khan dart to have his stumps rattled. Four wickets down in the session.

Afghanistan dominate over Bangladesh
Another session dominated by Afghanistan. Four wickets after lunch and two (Shakib and Rahim) in the last over before the break. A building partnership was broken by Nabi who trapped Soumya Sarkar. Rashid Khan introduced himself in the 25th over and didn't waste any time to set the ball rolling. Bangladesh 88/5
Soumya and Liton hold the fort and play it safe for three more overs, and keep Ahmadzai and Nabi at bay. Lunch couldn't have come at a better time for the hosts. BAN are 1/1 after 4 overs.
And what a start by Afghanistan! Yamin Ahmadzai does the deed for his team, as he dismisses Shadman Islam in the very first over. Liton Das comes on. BAN are 0/1 after the first over.
Bangladesh come to crease
Soumya Sarkar and Shadman Islam open for Bangladesh in the first seasson. Yamin Ahmadzai starts the proceedings for Afghanistan.
CAUGHT AND BOWLED! Mehidy Hasan bundles Afghanistan up as their last wicket falls with Rashid Khan departing for 51. AFG are 342-all out after 117 overs.
Fifty up for Rashid
Just how Shakib Al Hasan is leading by example with the ball, Afghanistan captain Rashid Khan too is doing the same with the bat. After hitting Taijul for a big one in the previous over, he hits Shakib for a six on the first ball itself. He brings up his maiden Test half-century in exactly 50 balls. AFG are 341/9 after 114.4 overs.
Yamin Ahmadzai is made to walk back to the pavilion for a duck as Shakib Al Hasan has his say with the ball. He is caught by Soumya Sarkar. On comes #11, Zahir Khan. AFG are 327/9 after 112.5 overs.
And Bangladesh hit back too, as the captain Shakib Al Hasan dismisses Qais Ahmad, as he is caught by Mominul Haque. Just two runs from the over and a wicket. AFG are 322/8 after 109 overs.
Afghanistan hitting hard
Afghanistan have completely lost their patience and let loose, slamming a massive 18 runs in the over. Taijul Islam might have taken four wickets, but his head was between his hands at the end of that. Rashid Khan hit him for a six, Qais Ahmad hit him for a four. AFG are 320/7 after 108 overs.
And just like that Afsar Zazai is gone for 41 because of Taijul Islam's magical delivery! Captain Rashid Khan will try to hold fort now though. AFG are 299/7 after 105.2 overs.
A wild shot from Asghar Afghan goes up in the air, and it's safely collected by Mushfiqur Rahim who had all the time in the world. Taijul Islam bags the third wicket of the innings. Afghan leaves the pitch shaking his head, having scored 92. AFG are 278/6 after 100 overs.
Mehidy Hasan starts the proceedings for the day to Asghar Afghan. Just three singles to start the day. Asghar touches 90*. AFG are 274/5 after 97 overs.
