2.2

Rubel Hossain to Mohammad Shahzad, OUT, oh the slower one has done it! Rubel rolled his fingers over the ball for the short of length ball which pitched outside off, it came in after pitching and Shahzad was beaten as he was trapped in front of the stumps around the knee roll and Bowden raised his finger

Mohammad Shahzad lbw b Rubel Hossain 2 (9m 8b 0x4 0x6) SR: 25.00

Afghanistan 6/1   Karim Sadiq 2* (6b)   Rubel Hossain 1.2-0-4-1

11.6

Arafat Sunny to Karim Sadiq, OUT, he has fallen under pressure! Sunny bowled a slightly slower one towards middle, Sadiq played the shot a bit early while pushing it back and a leading edge from close to the sticker of the bat went back to the bowler for an easy catch

Karim Sadiq c & b Arafat Sunny 12 (47m 36b 0x4 1x6) SR: 33.33

Afghanistan 40/2   Najibullah Zadran 19* (28b 2x4)   Arafat Sunny 2-0-7-1

13.4

Arafat Sunny to Najibullah Zadran, OUT, oh the ball's gone through him! Najibullah came down the track as the ball pitched around leg and was angled towards middle, and he played with a strange angle of the bat, keeping it horizontal, and the ball went right through. He couldn't get anywhere close to it

Najibullah Zadran b Arafat Sunny 21 (43m 36b 2x4 0x6) SR: 58.33

Afghanistan 43/3   Asghar Stanikzai 1* (2b)   Arafat Sunny 2.4-0-9-2

22.2

Mominul Haque to Nawroz Mangal, OUT, it's a run-out! Afghanistan lose another one and this was a bit unnecessary. The batsman dabbed this one towards cover and thought about a single. By the time he was sent back by the non-striker, the fielder had come in, swooped the ball and fired a quick throw to the keeper. The leg umpire didn't even think about asking the third umpire..

Nawroz Mangal run out 24 (33m 33b 3x4 0x6) SR: 72.72

Afghanistan 74/4   Asghar Stanikzai 8* (21b)   Mominul Haque 2.2-0-8-0

26.5

Mominul Haque to Mohammad Nabi, OUT, one more falls! Mominul pitched it up outside off, turned it away and the batsman drove with a lot of force only to give an outside edge to first slip where Nasir took a sharp catch

Mohammad Nabi c Nasir Hossain b Mominul Haque 7 (15m 15b 0x4 0x6) SR: 46.66

Afghanistan 90/5   Asghar Stanikzai 17* (33b)   Mominul Haque 4.5-0-13-1

49.5

Rubel Hossain to Asghar Stanikzai, OUT, oh it's a run out! Stanikzai couldn't connect with the ball that kept low outside off and Shenwari came across for a run meanwhile. The keeper passes the ball to the bowler and both batsmen are caught at the same end. Shenwari gets a lot of pats on his back as soon as he crosses the boundary rope

Samiullah Shenwari run out 81 (94m 69b 10x4 1x6) SR: 117.39

Afghanistan 254/6   Asghar Stanikzai 90* (102b 6x4 3x6)   Rubel Hossain 9.5-0-61-1
