Izatullah Dawlatzai to Hales, 1 run, length ball outside off, chopped past his stumps wafting away from the body and it rolls to short fine leg


Izatullah Dawlatzai to Wright, no run, beats Wright's loose prod outside the line of off


Izatullah Dawlatzai to Wright, FOUR, pitched up outside off, crashed low through point, opens the face and the ball skitters away to the rope


Izatullah Dawlatzai to Wright, 1 run, length ball, pushed into the covers coming forward


Izatullah Dawlatzai to Hales, FOUR, touch full, on the stumps and that's a nice pace for Hales to lofted four back down the ground, back over the bowler's head


Izatullah Dawlatzai to Hales, FOUR, full and straight and again drilled back down the ground, excellent timing from Hales, slight readjustment and pinged fine past mid-on

England 52/1   Izatullah Dawlatzai 1-0-14-0

Izatullah Dawlatzai to Wright, 1 run, full and straight, bump balled back down the ground to long-on


Izatullah Dawlatzai to Morgan, 2 runs, pitched up and hacked back down the ground, wide of long-on for a couple


Izatullah Dawlatzai to Morgan, (no ball) FOUR, lofted high extra-cover, skips out and picks the gap - and it's a no-ball. The Afghanistan ship is springing leaks all over the place


Izatullah Dawlatzai to Morgan, 1 run, skews the free hit down to third man, who drops it. Wouldn't have been out of course, but that's another shell in the field


Izatullah Dawlatzai to Wright, 1 run, full-toss, on the stumps, bunted back past the bowler


Izatullah Dawlatzai to Morgan, no run, full and wide, angled across the left-hander, who swings and misses


Izatullah Dawlatzai to Morgan, OUT, 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!

EJG Morgan c Nawroz Mangal b Izatullah Dawlatzai 27 (31m 23b 1x4 1x6) SR: 117.39

England 141/3   Izatullah Dawlatzai 2-0-24-1

Izatullah Dawlatzai to Buttler, FOUR, dug in at the man and Buttler serves this up over deep midwicket for a one-bounce four


Izatullah Dawlatzai to Buttler, OUT, 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

JC Buttler lbw b Izatullah Dawlatzai 15 (8m 7b 3x4 0x6) SR: 214.28


Izatullah Dawlatzai to Bairstow, (no ball) SIX, pitched up, over-stepped and Bairstow tees off first ball, dumping the bowler back over long-on!


Izatullah Dawlatzai to Bairstow, (no ball) 1 run, another no-ball, bunted low down the ground for one


Izatullah Dawlatzai to Wright, SIX, pitched up on the stumps, steps across outside off and swings the ball high to deep midwicket, where Stankikzai, I think, takes the catch (which won't count) and then steps on the rope to concede six! If it's not one thing, it's the other for Afghanistan's fielders!


Izatullah Dawlatzai to Wright, SIX, pitched up and smashed over long-off, Wright is seeing it like a beach ball now


Izatullah Dawlatzai to Wright, SIX, full and straight and right in Wright's slot again, he cashes in, mullering another straight slog down the ground, it lands metres beyond the boundary rope at long-on


Izatullah Dawlatzai to Wright, 1 run, dragged short, maybe a touch slower, pulled low towards deep square leg for one

England 187/4   Izatullah Dawlatzai 3-0-56-2
