View dismissal DA Warner c †Mohammad Shahzad b Shapoor Zadran 24 15 18 4 0 133.33

View dismissal MJ Clarke* st †Mohammad Shahzad b Samiullah Shenwari 75 120 94 3 2 79.78

View dismissal Karim Sadiq b Starc 17 28 18 3 0 94.44
5.5 Through the gate, Sadiq has been given a tough time, short of a good length, got it to nip back in and Sadiq, played a little outside the line to that one, was bowled between bat and pad 26/2
View dismissal Javed Ahmadi b Starc 0 8 3 0 0 0.00
1.5 bowled'im! Quick and it swung in to castle him, landed on middle, was late in bringing his bat down to play it, got an inside edge and was bowled, an early loss for Afghanistan 6/1
View dismissal Asghar Stanikzai c Clarke b Starc 66 154 106 6 0 62.26
35.6 taken! Stanikzai has to go and his arms are over his head in disbelief, short and wide and he drags it hard towards midwicket, Clarke reacts sharply and takes a good catch moving to his left, relief for Australia, the end of another fighting knock 165/6
View dismissal Mohammad Shahzad c †Wade b Pattinson 11 28 12 1 0 91.66
11.1 edged and taken by the keeper, short of a good length, it appeared to keep just a little low, Shehzad had made up his mind to cut, got a thick edge to Wade 49/3
View dismissal Nawroz Mangal* lbw b Pattinson 0 3 2 0 0 0.00
11.3 trapped in front, Pattinson pushes that full, on middle and leg, Mangal gets a little across, is on the crease when he misses and it strikes him on the pads, the only question was whether it missed leg. Unlikely, and that's what the umpire thinks as well, one more goes 49/4
View dismissal Mohammad Nabi b Johnson 46 78 60 3 4 76.66
30.4 Johnson has struck, Nabi was rooted to the crease there and just loosely tried to chip that over the in-field on the off side, missed it completely and was bowled 135/5
View dismissal Samiullah Shenwari b Starc 14 36 22 1 0 63.63
37.4 bowled by the slower one, he seemed to pick it, opened the face there to guide it towards third man, got an inside edge onto the stumps 171/8
View dismissal Najibullah Zadran c †Wade b Johnson 0 5 1 0 0 0.00
36.4 appeal for a catch, Bowden raises his finger after an eternity, there was an outside edge surely but did the ball bounce on its way to the keeper, poked at a fullish delivery. Did the ball bump into the ground before getting to the keeper? Bowden ultimately thinks not, we need another replay but officially he's out 166/7
View dismissal Gulbadin Naib c †Wade b Pattinson 22 31 17 1 3 129.41
42.3 short and Naib shapes up for a cut, there was an edge, a clear sound as he went for it, Wade dived low and to his left to catch that, the umpires are trying to verify if it carried, they've gone to the third umpire. Replays show it was a clean catch, he's got to go 199/9
View dismissal Dawlat Zadran c MEK Hussey b Doherty 8 32 18 2 0 44.44
43.5 holes out, tossed up and he swings hard, gets too much elevation there and finds Michael Hussey at deep midwicket 206/10
