On the first day, Afghanistan won the toss and opted to bat first. Rahmat Shah's maiden Test hundred, Asghar Afgan's 92 and captain Rashid Khan's 51 helped their team to post 342 runs on the board.

Bangladesh once again had a poor start and no batsmen could dig in but on the fifth-day rain was playing hide and seek game and at the last moment the rain stopped and Afghanistan had only 18 overs to take final 4 wickets which they took inside 15 overs and registered a memorable win. Rashid Khan took 6 wickets in the second innings and 11 wickets in the match and was named Man of the Match.
