View dismissal C Kieswetter b Shapoor Zadran 0 4 6 0 0 0.00
0.6 gone, played on! Zadran's arms are outspread in celebration and Kieswetter trudges off after seeing out a wicket maiden to open the match! This one did bounce a bit, the batsman stayed back, tried to open the face and use the pace on the ball and ended up blocking down into the ground in front of the stumps, the ball flicking off the bails on its way back up 0/1
View dismissal AD Hales run out (Karim Sadiq) 31 39 27 5 0 114.81
9.1 Karim Sadiq to Wright, full and Wright attacks, drives low back down the track and hits the stumps ... Sadiq got a finger on it, though, and Hales is on his way, run-out backing up! That's unfortunate but sharp work from Sadiq, who got down quickly and just got a touch on the ball as it bounced up and into the top of middle stump 69/2
LJ Wright not out 99 83 55 8 6 180.00
View dismissal EJG Morgan c Nawroz Mangal b Izatullah Dawlatzai 27 31 23 1 1 117.39
16.6 low full-toss, doesn't connect with a flail across the line and the ball loops to midwicket - he takes the catch, people, he takes the catch! 141/3
View dismissal JC Buttler lbw b Izatullah Dawlatzai 15 8 7 3 0 214.28
18.2 length ball, at the stumps, Buttler clears the front leg ... and is hit on the back pad in front of leg! Taufel raises the finger and Buttler's brief flicker is snuffed out, Dawlatzai going some way to atoning for his drop in the previous over 159/4
View dismissal JM Bairstow c Karim Sadiq b Dawlat Zadran 12 10 5 1 1 240.00
19.5 slower ball, full and at the stumps, clears the front foot and miscued towards long-on, who takes a solid running catch - the batsmen crossed, though, so Wright will be on strike 194/5

View dismissal Mohammad Shahzad c Broad b Finn 1 4 5 0 0 20.00
0.6 quick and straight and slapped high into the night sky - Broad is underneath it at mid-off and Shahzad fails to achieve lift off this time. 2/1
View dismissal Nawroz Mangal* c & b Broad 8 17 9 1 0 88.88
3.2 that's a superb catch and Mangal has to go! The ball was short, came quickly on to the bat as Mangal tried to hook, it was ungainly, went straight back towards the bowler and Broad reached to his right in his follow-through and plucked it out of the air as he tumbled to the ground 14/3
View dismissal Shafiqullah c sub (RS Bopara) b Dernbach 0 2 1 0 0 0.00
1.1 that's two in two, another sorry slog up and down and out! It was a length ball outside off, kicked a bit off the surface and Shafiqullah, facing his first ball, swings cross-batted, can't get over it and Ravi Bopara, the sub fielder, takes another steepling catch at cover before falling on his front 2/2
View dismissal Karim Sadiq run out (Buttler/Broad) 5 22 8 0 0 62.50
5.3 Broad to Asghar Stanikzai, full, yorker length, chopped straight to square leg ... and this is going to be a run-out, Sadiq yards out of his ground and gawping as Broad breaks the wicket! Smart work from Buttler, he dived to his left, reined the ball in with Sadiq already charging down the pitch, tossed it straight to the bowler to complete a rather village dismissal as Stanikzai watched forlornly from the safety of his crease 22/4
View dismissal Asghar Stanikzai c Bairstow b Broad 4 11 11 0 0 36.36
5.4 another one gone, what a catch from Bairstow! Broad bounced Stanikzai again, the bombardment has been almost relentless, and he got under an awkward hook shot, the ball looping towards long leg ... where it looked as if Bairstow's dive would come up just short but he got his hands underneath it and almost ended up doing a headstand as he completed an extraordinary take! 22/5
View dismissal Mohammad Nabi b Patel 1 10 6 0 0 16.66
8.3 bowled him, seven down! Patel tossed it up, Nabi advanced, played outside the line and turned to see his leg stump pegged back 26/7
View dismissal Samiullah Shenwari c Finn b Swann 2 6 9 0 0 22.22
7.4 tries to break the shackles with a reverse sweep and picks out the fielder at deep backward point! Shenwari got height but not enough to clear Finn and Afghanistan are six down and in record defeat territory 25/6
View dismissal Gulbadin Naib c Morgan b Dernbach 44 42 32 5 3 137.50
17.2 and that's it, Dernbach gets the final wicket as Gulbodin slogs into the air off the toe of the bat, falling tragically short of a defiant half-century - still, he has bettered his previous T20I best by 27 runs and recorded the highest score by a No. 8 in the format. Silver linings aside, that means England win by 116 runs 80/10
View dismissal Dawlat Zadran st †Kieswetter b Patel 0 2 3 0 0 0.00
8.6 advances, windmills the bat and stumped, another gone! This is a bloodbath, Afghanistan's batsmen swinging wildly from the hip and being picked off - two in the over for Patel 26/8
View dismissal Shapoor Zadran lbw b Swann 9 25 17 0 1 52.94
15.3 and got him, slides on with the arm, inside the line of the bat and Dharmasena raises the finger, Zadran sloping off one run shy of double figures 70/9
