Dawlat Zadran to Gambhir, 1 run, nearly a wicket first ball there, Gambhir could have been out twice off that delivery, first he almost spooned a catch to mid-off as he looked to play the ball to square leg, the leading edge drops short of the charging fielder, he would have been easily run-out there as well, the throw misses and he survives


Dawlat Zadran to Sehwag, no run, on the pads, worked towards square leg


Dawlat Zadran to Sehwag, no run, no feet at all from Sehwag, it was short and wide, and usually Sehwag would have dispatched that to the deep point boundary, he misses out this time


Dawlat Zadran to Sehwag, 1 run, another leading edge, this was pitched up by Zadran, Sehwag was looking to work that to the leg side from the off stump, edged behind backward point, not the most assured of starts here


Dawlat Zadran to Gambhir, FOUR, wrong line, Gambhir missed out once in the previous over, this time he doesn't, it was on the pads, short of a length, glanced fine for four

Dawlat Zadran to Kohli, no run, Dawlat grunts again, punched towards point, Afghanistan's fielding has been sharp today


Dawlat Zadran to Kohli, 1 run, fifth dot ball in a row, scratch that, there is an overthrow, crashed off the front foot towards cover, bounces awkwardly towards Nabi, who gets his body in the way, struck on the knee as he stops it, then there's a shy at the stumps at the striker's end, which results in a free run


Dawlat Zadran to Sehwag, 1 run, Sehwag edges the final ball of the over behind backward square leg, just two off the over

Dawlat Zadran to Raina, no run, pitched up and that is hammered towards point, no run for that effort


Dawlat Zadran to Raina, 1 run, full slower ball outside off, slapped towards sweeper cover


Dawlat Zadran to Kohli, 2 runs, Kohli gets to his fifty, as he seems to in virtually every match these days, it was a high full toss that was slammed down the ground


Dawlat Zadran to Kohli, OUT, Afghanistan have held on to the the catch this time! Kohli looks to launch that one over long-off, seemed to have hit it quite well, but it doesn't have the legs, long-off latches on to it, it's Nabi who take a terrific overhead catch, and immediately signals to the crowd in celebration, huge wicket that, it was a

Dawlat Zadran to Raina, 1 wide, round the wicket, full and too wide outside off


Dawlat Zadran to Raina, no run, better this time, keeps it full, outside off again but it is closer to the stumps, Raina looks to jab that to the off side but can't connect
