Captain Rashid Khan's record-breaking all-round performance (75 runs & 11/104) helped Afghanistan to beat Bangladesh in one-off the Test match at Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium in Chattogram. 

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. In reply, Bangladesh couldn't do much against Rashid Khan and Mohammad Nabi and bowled out for just 205 runs. Rashid Khan took 5 wickets for 55 runs. 

In the second innings, Afghanistan scored 260 runs with the help of Ibrahim Zadran's 87 and Asghar Afghan's 50 and set a target of 366 runs for the hosts. 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.
