Played at R Premadasa Stadium, Colombo (neutral venue)
21 September 2012 - night match (20-over match)

Shapoor Zadran to Wright, SIX, oh, that's gone a long way, steps out and cream-crackers an overpitched delivery over long-on, Wright's Popeye forearms doing maximum damage

England 38/1   LJ Wright 18* (10b 3x4 1x6)   Shapoor Zadran 3-1-24-1

Samiullah Shenwari to Wright, SIX, over the wicket now from Sadiq and over the rope by Wright! It was tossed up on leg stump, Wright cleared space and boffed it high back down the ground - that landed pretty much in the front row of seats

England 91/2   LJ Wright 49* (33b 5x4 2x6)   Samiullah Shenwari 3.2-0-25-0

Mohammad Nabi to Morgan, SIX, flighted on leg stump, barely a flick of the wrists from Morgan but that's gone miles over deep midwicket for six!

England 115/2   EJG Morgan 19* (17b 1x6)   Mohammad Nabi 2.1-0-16-0

Mohammad Nabi to Wright, SIX, another maximum, a full-blooded mow outside off, not the cleanest of connections but it came off the middle of the edge and flew over long-off

England 126/2   LJ Wright 68* (43b 7x4 3x6)   Mohammad Nabi 2.4-0-27-0

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

England 166/4   JM Bairstow 6* (1b 1x6)   Izatullah Dawlatzai 2.2-0-35-2

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!

England 174/4   LJ Wright 82* (49b 8x4 4x6)   Izatullah Dawlatzai 2.3-0-43-2

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

England 180/4   LJ Wright 88* (50b 8x4 5x6)   Izatullah Dawlatzai 2.4-0-49-2

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

England 186/4   LJ Wright 94* (51b 8x4 6x6)   Izatullah Dawlatzai 2.5-0-55-2
