Bangladesh posted a challenging 262 for seven in their must-win game against Afghanistan at The Rose Bowl in Southampton on Monday.

After Shakib Al Hasan's 51 off 69 balls and a valiant 83 off 87 deliveries from Mushfiqur Rahim, it was a quick-fire 24-ball 35 from Mosaddek Hossain that ensured the Tigers get to a challenging total.

Mosaddek had laced his innings with four boundaries and although he did not hit any maximums, the right-hander batted with a strike rate of 145.83.

Mosaddek Hossain tries to play a slower yorker from Gulbadin Naib but it gets an edge of his bat and rolls onto the stumps.

That's the end of Mosaddek's innings and also Bangladesh's. The Tigers post a challenging 262 for seven.

Mushfiqur Rahim skies one up. Taken at extra cover by Mohammad Nabi. A brilliant innings of 83 runs comes to an end.

Mosaddek Hossain gets a leading edge as he tries to flick a Rashid Khan delivery.

However, Gulbadin Naib who was standing at cover was slow to react and misses an opportunity of dismissing Mosaddek.

A brief break in proceedings after Mahmudullah hobbled to complete a run in the penultimate delivery of the 34th over.

He recieved treatment on the field by the physio. The physio is seen to put on medical wrap around Mahmudullah's calf. Seems like a cramp but Mahmudullah continues.

Soumya Sarkar tries to flick a Mujeeb ur Rahman delivery but the ball skids and hits his pads. Given out but Sarkar takes the review.

The ball seems to be just hitting the leg stump and that's the end of Soumya. Ultra-Edge had in fact not been used in that review. Strage scenario and another controversial decision perhaps. It is the same type of delivery that got Shakib Al Hasan. Bangladesh in need of a partnership now.

Sarkar runs after hitting a Gulbadin Naib delivery that goes direct to the hands of the fielder at mid on. The fielder gets a direct hit and it goes to third umpire. Soumya survives this as he is just in. It was close.

ll and Shakib asks for the review. The ball would have bounced over the stumps there. The umpire reverses his decision. Close shave for Shakib. He survives!

Bangladesh have lost their second wicket as Tamim departs to Nabi in the 17th over. Flighted delivery and Tamim tries to rock back and hit it towards the offside.

The drifter turns slightly and clips the off stump. Bangladesh lose an important wicket.
