End of Over : 18.5 AFG: 135/4

An interesting contest has come to an end! The Men from Afghanistan have proved their mettle and have shown a lot of maturity as well. The results are showing and they are advancing northwards pretty quickly. Bangladesh, on the other hand, have been disappointing. A complete performance was the need of the hour for them but their batting fizzed out again. They will be playing for pride on 7th of June in the final T20I at 2000 Local (1430 GMT). Will the Bangla Tigers come out reinvigorated? Or will the Men in Blue run away with the show? Do join us. Cheers!

SIX! Nabi finishes off in style! Afghanistan have sealed the 3-match T20I series here itself. Good length ball outside off, Nabi backs himself and launches it over wide long off. It is going, going and clears the fence with ease. Happy faces in the Afghan camp. AFGHANISTAN WIN BY 6 WICKETS!

SIX! That shot has released the pressure completely! Nabi has been cool as a cucumber and he has delivered in a crunch situation. Only 10 more needed from 10 balls. In the arc for Nabi, he stays steady and heaves it way into the deep mid-wicket stands. Pressure is telling on Hossain.

FOUR! Drilled! Just what the doctor ordered for Afghanistan. Full ball in line of the stumps, Nabi hammers it over the head of the bowler for a rocketing boundary.

OUT! Bowled 'em! Tossed up ball outside off, Shenwari tries to go big downtown but seems to have got an inside edge which has crashed into the stumps. Well, the umpire is not sure and he has a chat with his partner. It has been taken upstairs. It is not a drag on, in fact Shenwari missed it completely. A very vital breakthrough in the context of the game. Can Bangladesh win it from here?
