A Bangladesh fan has been detained for invading pitch during the first Afghanistan Test, being held at Chattogram’s Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium.

According to bdcrictime, the spectator managed to breach the security and came up to star all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan and gave him a bunch of flowers.

He then gave Shakib a salute before even trying to hug him before being taken off the field by security, the report added. He was then taken into custody.

Meanwhile, Bangladesh bowlers were made to sweat as Afghanistan piled up 342 runs, thanks to knocks from Rahmat Shah (102) and Asghar Afghan (92).

In reply, the hosts are struggling at 95-5 at tea on Day 2, with captain Rashid Khan taking three wickets and Yamin Ahmadzai and Mohammad Nabi taking one each.
