Rashid Khan had 8 to defend off the last over to pull off a whitewash for Afghanistan. At the crease were Mushfiqur Rahim and Mahmudullah, both in their forties. The 19th over had gone for 21. It was Bangladesh’s match to lose at Dehradun. And they lost it. Mushfiqur played an inexplicable slog-sweep off the first ball and perished. Mahmudullah gave the strike to new batsman Ariful Haque twice in the over. And Shafiqullah Shafiq ran out Mahmudullah off the last ball to pull off a 1-run win. Here are the statistical highlights from the 3rd T20I:
