Just brilliant from Afghanistan. Had 18.3 overs to get 4 wickets with 2 batsmen and did it with overs to spare. Magnificent game for @rashidkhan_19 but how good was everyone else. Their great story continues.

An Asian spinner has taken 11 wickets in a Test match on 58 occasions. Only seven of those were better in terms of strike rate compared to Rashid Khan's 22.6 in this Test. #BANvAFG
