View dismissal SP Khakurel c Asghar Stanikzai b Shapoor Zadran 56 76 53 6 1 105.66
18.1 82.3 mph, that is the end of Khakurel's fantastic effort! He looks to heave the length delivery to the deep midwicket boundary but gets more height than length on that.. Ashgar Stanikzai does very well to run back from midwicket and grab that comfortably in the end 129/4
View dismissal Sagar Pun c Mohammad Nabi b Dawlat Zadran 8 18 11 1 0 72.72
3.6 77.9 mph, the extra ball has done the damage! Pun, when he made contact with the ball, looked like he had got the timing to take it over mid-off, but no. Nabi takes a simple head high catch there and Nepal, apart from being slow today, have lost a wicket too 19/1
View dismissal G Malla c Nawroz Mangal b Mohammad Nabi 22 17 13 3 1 169.23
7.4 52.5 mph, a soft dismissal this one! Malla, who looked so good in the first over, surrenders with an unnecessarily risky shot. Nabi kept it around the middle and leg line but Malla tries to drag it to the off side with a reverse-sweep only to get a thick top edge that lobs up gently for the fielder at short third man. That was in fact a switch-hit. 51/2
View dismissal P Khadka* b Mirwais Ashraf 1 5 5 0 0 20.00
8.6 82.6 mph, the captain has to go! After solidly getting behind the last few deliveries, he attempts to go across the line to a straight length ball and pays the price. He gets a thick inside edge that flattens the stumps. Joy for Mirwais, who is playing his first match in the tournament. No inside edge actually, he just missed it completely to lose his off stick 53/3
View dismissal S Vesawkar c †Mohammad Shahzad b Shapoor Zadran 37 38 32 5 0 115.62
18.3 86.5 mph, another one down! Shapoor got taken for runs off the fuller one, but his short delivery does the job. The batsman veers away to the leg side to smash it over the off, but gets a thick top edge that lobs up for the keeper 133/5

View dismissal Mohammad Shahzad c Sompal Kami b Mukhiya 6 19 17 1 0 35.29
4.3 78.1 mph, caught at third man! Shahzad doesn't learn! He moves outside leg, gets some bat on it this time, but it is a thick outside edge that flies straight into the hands of Kami, who makes no mistake 20/2
View dismissal Karim Sadiq b Sompal Kami 8 12 7 2 0 114.28
3.1 80.8 mph, raise a toast for Kami as he skids this one through the defence! Karim didn't help himself by moving down the leg side and using a horizontal bat to a length delivery.. Even in the previous over, Kami wasn't getting much bounce and this time too, it skids below the bat to hit middle and leg 14/1
View dismissal Najibullah Zadran c Vesawkar b Mukhiya 5 8 4 1 0 125.00
4.4 79.0 mph, make it two in two! This is suicidal from Najibullah! Ok maybe the idea was right, but he didn't get any timing as he looked to heave this over mid-on. Another easy catch for the fielder.. Nepal are not fluffing any chances today. 20/3
View dismissal Nawroz Mangal c Khadka b Gauchan 5 16 7 1 0 71.42
8.2 oh what a catch this one from Khadka! he runs from short fine leg a long way towards the deep square leg boundary, lines himself up and dives to his left at the last moment to pull off a ripper! What a welcome change from two days back when nothing seemed to stick. Huge top edge from the batsman as he looks to sweep. Nepal on a roll here 47/4
View dismissal Shafiqullah c Sagar Pun b Regmi 36 38 32 3 1 112.50
14.1 52.1 mph, what a timely strike by Regmi! He tosses it up outside off, gets some extra bounce and the batsman, looking for a cut, doesn't manage to keep it down. Pun, at point, takes a smart forward diving catch. The catching from Nepal today has been brilliant. 83/6
View dismissal Mohammad Nabi* lbw b Gauchan 1 3 2 0 0 50.00
8.6 Shakti takes off on his sprint! Nepal are ecstatic! Nabi looks to whip this to the leg side but gets hit on the pads. It looked like it was going down the leg but the umpire raises his finger to trigger manic scenes in the Nepal camp. Nabi is visibly surprised with that call..Understandably so, as the replays show it would have just missed leg stump 50/5
View dismissal Asghar Stanikzai c Malla b Sompal Kami 49 48 36 4 1 136.11
19.5 84.7 mph, Malla, at long on, corrects his last two mistakes and finally takes a catch. It's a simple chance for the fielder as Stanikzai lofts the full toss straight down the ground. That shot lacked punch. That's also the end of line for Afghanistan 132/8
View dismissal Samiullah Shenwari c Khadka b Mukhiya 15 20 13 1 0 115.38
18.4 79.0 mph, another wonderful catch! What a transformation in Nepalese fielding from two days ago! It looked like there was some confusion between two fielder converging under the skier, but Khadka manages to get there and takes it with a forward drive at mid on. It was a high full toss, probably the only full toss in the last two overs, but the batsman top edged it big time 115/7
