'King Rashid Khan' - Twitter Rejoices After Afghanistan Win

Rashid Khan claimed 6-49 and completed his maiden 10-wicket haul in Test cricket as Afghanistan overcame rain and fading light to crush Bangladesh by 224 runs in the one-off Test in Chittagong on Monday.

In only his country's third Test match, Rashid took three of the last four wickets to finish with a match haul of 11 wickets, helping Afghanistan bowl out Bangladesh for 173 runs in the second innings.

With four wickets in hand, the hosts were given 18.3 overs to survive after play resumed in the final session following a rain break but they succumbed with three overs to spare.

Here is a look at how the social media reacted,

Rashid was later awarded the man-of-the-match for his perfomrance.

“The legend Nabi, who has played his last Test, has helped me and other young spinners a lot. I wish him all the best and I want to dedicate my man of the match award to him.”

Speaking on the victory, Afghanistan skipper Rashid said that it was a ‘total team effort’, adding that the youngsters have learnt quickly and that the domestic four-day structure was reaping dividends.

“It was a total team effort. The youngsters are learning very quickly and we now have a good four-day structure at home. That's the best thing done by the cricket board."
