Afghanistan captain Rashid Khan led the way for his team with 3-46 with his leg-spin. He took five in the first innings. Opposite number Shakib Al Hasan held Bangladesh's hopes on 39 not out.

The fourth day came to a premature end because of rain, which delayed the start and interrupted play several times.

Left-arm spinner Zahir Khan, on his test debut, took 2-36 and began Bangladesh's slide with the wicket of opener Liton Das lbw for nine.

Mosaddek Hossain, promoted to No. 3 for Bangladesh in place of Mominul Haque, played an expensive cut shot against a turning delivery from Zahir and was caught for 12.

Rashid Khan baffled Mushfiqur (23) with a googly and added the wickets of Mominul Haque for 3 and Mahmudullah for 7 to run through Bangladesh's middle order.

Bangladesh lost 4-47 in that period.

Shadman Islam made 41 to top-score for Bangladesh.

Afghanistan only gained test status last year and has played just two tests before this but is now on the brink of a memorable victory against a team that has been playing test cricket for nearly 20 years. Afghanistan lost to India and beat Ireland in its only other Tests.
