Partner in crime

A much-hyped match between Bangladesh and potential giant-killers Afghanistan became a dull affair in the end and Bangladesh's two most experienced left-arm spinners Shakib Al Hasan and Abdur Razzak were the 'culprits'. Together they claimed five wickets and broke the backbone of the Afghan batting. The two used the condition maximum to put Bangladesh on top in the first session. The panic they created for the Afghan batsmen ultimately written the fate of the match. Shakib gave only eight runs, it could have been four runs had Sabbir Rahman not dropped a catch and conceded four runs, in 3.1 overs for three wickets while Razzak was little bit expensive and gave away 20 runs in 4 overs for 2 wickets.
