Afghanistan beat Bangladesh: Here're the records scripted by Rashid Khan

Afghanistan scripted history on Monday when they beat Bangladesh by 224 runs in a Test match at Chittagong.

While this was Afghanistan's second win in their opening three Tests, the side also scripted several records.

However, it was their captain Rashid Khan, who was the center of attraction, as he too scripted several records, while we take a look.

Youngest Test captain to win a Test match

While Rashid became the youngest captain to lead a side in Test cricket, he scripted another record in a span of five days, as he also became the youngest captain to record a Test win. During the win, Rashid was aged 20 years, 354 days.

Debut magic

Fourth player with 50 and five-for on Test captaincy debut

Rashid's fine run on debut as the Test captain continued as he also joined a list of the elite by becoming the fourth player to score a half-century and claim a five-for in an innings.

Rashid, asides scoring 51, also claimed 5/55 in the first innings.

He has joined the likes of Stanley Jackson, Imran and Shakib Al Hasan.

Trapping a batsman leg-before is one of the most unique and commendable ways to get him dismissed.

In the same light, Rashid claimed six victims via LBW in this match.

Consequently, he became the second leg-spinner in Test history to claim six LBWs in a match.

He shares the record with Pakistan's Abdul Qadir, who did the same against England, in 1987.
