Afghanistan crushed Bangladesh by 224 runs in the one-off Test in Chittagong.

The visitors defied rain and fading light on the final day to register the big win.

Chasing a massive victory target of 398, Bangladesh fell for 173 in their second innings.

Afghanistan's 20-year-old captain Rashid Khan claimed 6 for 49 and completed his maiden 10-wicket haul.

He also scored a half-century (51) in the match and was named Man of the Match.

It’s Afghanistan’s maiden overseas Test victory in just their third match.
