ICC World Twenty20 - 6th match, Group A

Afghanistan v England

England won by 116 runs

Steven Finn to bowl the first over...

Right, are you strapped in. If Mohammad Shahzad unveils the helicopter again, this innings could take off. There's a little something in the pitch, which England's bowlers should aim to exploit.

0.1

Finn to Mohammad Shahzad, no run, length ball, on the line of off, whipped to leg with a flourish by Shahzad but straight to midwicket

0.2

Finn to Mohammad Shahzad, no run, back of a length outside off, seams away a touch and the batsman swishes and misses

0.3

Finn to Mohammad Shahzad, 1 run, pitched up, angled in towards off stump, turned through leg for one to get off the mark

0.4

Finn to Nawroz Mangal, 1 run, lifts off a good length and comes back in at Mangal, who stays back deflects the ball past his stumps to long leg

0.5

Finn to Mohammad Shahzad, no run, length ball, high backlift from Shahzad and driven into the ground to mid-on, Patel gets across and but misfields as Mangal is sent back

0.6

Finn to Mohammad Shahzad, OUT, 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.

Mohammad Shahzad c Broad b Finn 1 (4m 5b 0x4 0x6) SR: 20.00

End of over 1 (2 runs) Afghanistan 2/1 (195 runs required from 19 overs, RR: 2.00, RRR: 10.26)
     ST Finn    1-0-2-1
Nawroz Mangal    1* (1b)     

Jade Dernbach will take the ball at the other end. Here's James: "Well at least the Afghans are ahead of the Poms at this stage!"

1.1

Dernbach to Shafiqullah, OUT, 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

Shafiqullah c sub (RS Bopara) b Dernbach 0 (2m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

1.2

Dernbach to Karim Sadiq, no run, is that three in a row? No, there was no glove - only helmet - as Dernbach bounced Sadiq first ball, the ball banging into protective gear and looping to slip

1.3

Dernbach to Karim Sadiq, no run, fences and misses outside off, another quick length ball that fizzes through

1.4

Dernbach to Karim Sadiq, 2 runs, dug in short and he's in position this time, hooking in front of square for a couple

1.5

Dernbach to Karim Sadiq, no run, length ball, in the corridor, beats Sadiq for pace as he tries to hit the cover off it

1.6

Dernbach to Karim Sadiq, no run, slower ball this time, wide of the stumps, Sadiq has to wait for it to arrive and can then only pat to point

Well, it seems fair to say Afghanistan look a little rattled after that start. So much so that Sunny has been spurred into making a prediction: "This will be witnessed as the shortest innings of a T20I."

End of over 2 (2 runs) Afghanistan 4/2 (193 runs required from 18 overs, RR: 2.00, RRR: 10.72)
Karim Sadiq    2* (5b)      JW Dernbach    1-0-2-1
Nawroz Mangal    1* (1b)      ST Finn    1-0-2-1

2.1

Finn to Nawroz Mangal, 1 wide, slings this down the leg side - that'll be wide

2.1

Finn to Nawroz Mangal, no run, defended down into the ground in front of the stumps, Mangal keeps an eye on it to make sure he doesn't go the same way as Kieswetter (seems a long time ago, that)

2.2

Finn to Nawroz Mangal, no run, length ball, pushed into the off side

2.3

Finn to Nawroz Mangal, no run, quick and straight in the channel outside off, punched into the covers again

2.4

Finn to Nawroz Mangal, FOUR, pitched up and Mangal-ed wide of mid-on, it was in the air but Patel was labouring to get to his right and the ball skips away for four

2.5

Finn to Nawroz Mangal, 1 wide, short ball, at the man as Mangal walks across, misses with a swipe but it was straight enough not to be called wide

2.5

Finn to Nawroz Mangal, 1 wide, another bumper, tries to pull and Finn appeals for a glove down the leg side - umpire Taufel signals wide instead, much to Finn's chagrin

2.5

Finn to Nawroz Mangal, no run, pitched up outside off, solid forward block towards cover

2.6

Finn to Nawroz Mangal, 1 run, length ball, rises off the pitch and squirts to long leg as the bat turns in Mangals hands

Scruffy over from Finn - and Afghanistan, ahem, are still just ahead on the comparison

End of over 3 (8 runs) Afghanistan 12/2 (185 runs required from 17 overs, RR: 4.00, RRR: 10.88)
Nawroz Mangal    6* (7b 1x4)      ST Finn    2-0-10-1
Karim Sadiq    2* (5b)      JW Dernbach    1-0-2-1

An early bowling change, with Broad bringing himself on in place of Dernbach

3.1

Broad to Nawroz Mangal, 2 runs, pitched up outside off, punched through a gap at cover for a couple

3.2

Broad to Nawroz Mangal, OUT, 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

Nawroz Mangal c & b Broad 8 (17m 9b 1x4 0x6) SR: 88.88

In comes Ashgar Stanikzai to face his first ball

3.3

Broad to Asghar Stanikzai, 2 runs, touch short again, shuffles across and flicks through backward square from outside off

3.4

Broad to Asghar Stanikzai, no run, leg side bumper, tries to pull and wears the ball flush on the groin [winces]

3.5

Broad to Asghar Stanikzai, no run, length ball outside off, beats the outside edge as Stanikzai plays from the crease

3.6

Broad to Asghar Stanikzai, 1 run, back of a length, turned off the pads through square leg

End of over 4 (5 runs) Afghanistan 17/3 (180 runs required from 16 overs, RR: 4.25, RRR: 11.25)
Asghar Stanikzai    3* (4b)      SCJ Broad    1-0-5-1
Karim Sadiq    2* (5b)      ST Finn    2-0-10-1

"Who are England making a fun of?" wonders Mukunth, "Afghanistan or India?"

4.1

Finn to Asghar Stanikzai, 1 run, pitched up outside off, big, free swing of the bat and sliced to third man

4.2

Finn to Karim Sadiq, no run, dug in, at the man, backs away and is hit on the body

4.3

Finn to Karim Sadiq, 2 runs, length ball on the line of off, nicely played by Sadiq, back foot in the air as he whips through midwicket for a couple

4.4

Finn to Karim Sadiq, 1 run, screwed high off the edge, trying to lump a length ball down the ground, it bounces and spins as Bairstow runs around and he does fell to avoid embarrassment and pat it back into play

4.5

Finn to Asghar Stanikzai, no run, on the stumps, coming back in, can't get the drive away

4.6

Finn to Asghar Stanikzai, 1 leg bye, length ball, angled towards leg stump, Stanikzai goes back and is hit on the pad, the ball popping towards gully for a leg bye

End of over 5 (5 runs) Afghanistan 22/3 (175 runs required from 15 overs, RR: 4.40, RRR: 11.66)
Asghar Stanikzai    4* (7b)      ST Finn    3-0-14-1
Karim Sadiq    5* (8b)      SCJ Broad    1-0-5-1

5.1

Broad to Asghar Stanikzai, no run, back of a length outside off, tires to pull and bottom-edges on to the pitch

5.2

Broad to Asghar Stanikzai, no run, on the stumps, takes the pace off, defended

5.3

Broad to Asghar Stanikzai, OUT, 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

Karim Sadiq run out 5 (22m 8b 0x4 0x6) SR: 62.50

5.4

Broad to Asghar Stanikzai, OUT, 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!

Asghar Stanikzai c Bairstow b Broad 4 (11m 11b 0x4 0x6) SR: 36.36

Mohammad Nabi is the new lamb at the crease

5.5

Broad to Mohammad Nabi, no run, slightly short, at the wicket, defended on the back foot

5.6

Broad to Mohammad Nabi, no run, bouncer, over the head of Nabi as he flinches out of the way

End of over 6 (wicket maiden) Afghanistan 22/5 (175 runs required from 14 overs, RR: 3.66, RRR: 12.50)
Mohammad Nabi    0* (2b)      SCJ Broad    2-1-5-2
Samiullah Shenwari    0* (0b)      ST Finn    3-0-14-1

Time for spin - and it's Samit Patel, rather than Graeme Swann

6.1

Patel to Samiullah Shenwari, 1 run, tossed up on the stumps, pushed down the ground to long-on

6.2

Patel to Samiullah Shenwari, 1 run, tossed up and driven wide of cover, this time they get one

End of over 7 (3 runs) Afghanistan 25/5 (172 runs required from 13 overs, RR: 3.57, RRR: 13.23)
Samiullah Shenwari    2* (5b)      SR Patel    1-0-3-0
Mohammad Nabi    1* (3b)      SCJ Broad    2-1-5-2

Spin at both ends, then, Swann also into the attack

7.1

Swann to Samiullah Shenwari, no run, flighted, spinning in from outside off, turned to midwicket

7.2

Swann to Samiullah Shenwari, no run, tossed up and tickled back to the bowler

7.3

Swann to Samiullah Shenwari, no run, this goes straight on outside off, bit of flight and dip and beats the outside edge

7.4

Swann to Samiullah Shenwari, OUT, 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

Samiullah Shenwari c Finn b Swann 2 (6m 9b 0x4 0x6) SR: 22.22

7.5

Swann to Mohammad Nabi, no run, spins back across sharply and rolls away off the pad

7.6

Swann to Mohammad Nabi, no run, turned to midwicket from the crease

End of over 8 (wicket maiden) Afghanistan 25/6 (172 runs required from 12 overs, RR: 3.12, RRR: 14.33)
Mohammad Nabi    1* (5b)      GP Swann    1-1-0-1
Gulbadin Naib    0* (0b)      SR Patel    1-0-3-0

8.1

Patel to Gulbadin Naib, no run, on the stumps, played back to Patel

8.2

Patel to Gulbadin Naib, 1 run, tossed up and worked into the leg side

8.3

Patel to Mohammad Nabi, OUT, bowled him, seven down! Patel tossed it up, Nabi advanced, played outside the line and turned to see his leg stump pegged back

Mohammad Nabi b Patel 1 (10m 6b 0x4 0x6) SR: 16.66

8.4

Patel to Dawlat Zadran, no run, tossed up and gets behind it in defence

8.5

Patel to Dawlat Zadran, no run, flighted on middle and off, pushed back to the bowler

8.6

Patel to Dawlat Zadran, OUT, 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

Dawlat Zadran st †Kieswetter b Patel 0 (2m 3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

End of over 9 (1 run) Afghanistan 26/8 (171 runs required from 11 overs, RR: 2.88, RRR: 15.54)
     SR Patel    2-0-4-2
Gulbadin Naib    1* (2b)      GP Swann    1-1-0-1

9.1

9.3

Swann to Gulbadin Naib, no run, flighted outside off, edged to short third man

9.4

Swann to Gulbadin Naib, no run, spinning in, beats the forward prod and somehow misses the stumps on its way through

9.5

Swann to Gulbadin Naib, no run, floated up outside off, defended on the front foot

9.6

Swann to Gulbadin Naib, no run, plays back and chops to cover - another maiden for Swann

"Record winning margin for a T20I is 172, SL vs Kenya in 2007," correctly notes Ben. "One more run needed to avoid equaling that record." Yep, they've avoided that ignominy - but the lowest T20I score of 67 still beckons

End of over 10 (maiden) Afghanistan 26/8 (171 runs required from 60 balls, RR: 2.60, RRR: 17.10)
Gulbadin Naib    1* (8b)      GP Swann    2-2-0-1
Shapoor Zadran    0* (0b)      SR Patel    2-0-4-2

Patel continues, over the wicket to the left-handed Zadran

10.1

Patel to Shapoor Zadran, no run, tossed up and turned into the leg side

10.2

Patel to Shapoor Zadran, no run, flighted outside off, tries to cut, miscues back down the pitch

10.3

Patel to Shapoor Zadran, no run, tossed up on off stump, pushed back to the bowler

10.4

Patel to Shapoor Zadran, 2 runs, touch short, outside off and heaved with a horizontal bat through midwicket, Buttler slides and stops, though they check to see if his foot touched the rope - it didn't

10.5

Patel to Shapoor Zadran, no run, floated up outside off, defended on the front foot

10.6

Patel to Shapoor Zadran, no run, gets outside the line and presses forward in defence

I think Afghanistan have decided to consolidate

End of over 11 (2 runs) Afghanistan 28/8 (169 runs required from 54 balls, RR: 2.54, RRR: 18.77)
Shapoor Zadran    2* (6b)      SR Patel    3-0-6-2
Gulbadin Naib    1* (8b)      GP Swann    2-2-0-1

"Come on ref, you should stop this one to save the Afghans from any further punishment," appeals a concerned Roger Butcher

11.1

Swann to Gulbadin Naib, FOUR, tossed up outside off and chipped back over Swann's head for a straight four - only the second of the innings

11.2

Swann to Gulbadin Naib, FOUR, leans out and hoicks high into the outfield, between long-on and deep midwicket for another boundary

Nope, they're back on the attack

11.3

Swann to Gulbadin Naib, no run, flighted outside off, dabbed towards cover

11.4

Swann to Gulbadin Naib, 2 runs, pushed through, swatted through square leg and the fielders converge on it in the deep

11.5

Swann to Gulbadin Naib, no run, defended in front of the stumps

11.6

Swann to Gulbadin Naib, SIX, waheeeeeeeeyyyy, here we go, Gulbodin plants the front foot and thwacks Swann back over wide long-on

Well, a few big overs in T20 and you never know, of course...

End of over 12 (16 runs) Afghanistan 44/8 (153 runs required from 48 balls, RR: 3.66, RRR: 19.12)
Gulbadin Naib    17* (14b 2x4 1x6)      GP Swann    3-2-16-1
Shapoor Zadran    2* (6b)      SR Patel    3-0-6-2

Broad turns back to pace and throws the ball to his 99er, Luke Wright

12.1

Wright to Shapoor Zadran, no run, length ball outside off, beats the bat as Zadran pokes uncertainly

12.2

Wright to Shapoor Zadran, no run, short ball, the batsman backs off and fences blindly

12.3

Wright to Shapoor Zadran, no run, another ungainly avoidance manoeuvre from the tailender, as a bumper zips by at chest height

12.4

Wright to Shapoor Zadran, no run, short and outside off, sways back and drops the hands - that's better

12.5

Wright to Shapoor Zadran, 1 wide, fired down the leg side - another to the total

12.5

Wright to Shapoor Zadran, no run, length ball on the stumps, patted into the off side

12.6

Wright to Shapoor Zadran, no run, back of a length, Zadran defends into the off side on the back foot

This is, pretty obviously, the biggest partnership of the innings. Here's Sean M: "Can't watch anymore. Humiliation. Wanted close contest. They are a decent team. So sad." They'll be bloodied after this, for sure, but I imagine unbowed. Like Chumbawumba once said, "I get knocked down ..."

End of over 13 (1 run) Afghanistan 45/8 (152 runs required from 42 balls, RR: 3.46, RRR: 21.71)
Shapoor Zadran    2* (12b)      LJ Wright    1-0-1-0
Gulbadin Naib    17* (14b 2x4 1x6)      GP Swann    3-2-16-1

Broad brings himself back on

13.1

Broad to Gulbadin Naib, no run, pitched up outside off, smears the ball straight to extra-cover

13.2

Broad to Gulbadin Naib, no run, dug in, Gulbodin takes on the bouncer and tennis-smashes to long-on ... he then turns down the single. Still wants to protect the tail, does Gulbodin

13.3

Broad to Gulbadin Naib, no run, another bouncer, misses with an airy swipe

13.4

Broad to Gulbadin Naib, FOUR, length ball outside off, sliced over the slips and that'll run away for four as Broad puffs out his cheeks

13.5

Broad to Gulbadin Naib, 1 run, heaves hard again, this goes loops high over mid-off and this time the batsman is happy to take the single

Well, he's made double figures, so he must know what he's doing - that's the 50, by the way

13.6

Broad to Shapoor Zadran, no run, short and at the man, calmly defended on the back foot

End of over 14 (5 runs) Afghanistan 50/8 (147 runs required from 36 balls, RR: 3.57, RRR: 24.50)
Shapoor Zadran    2* (13b)      SCJ Broad    3-1-10-2
Gulbadin Naib    22* (19b 3x4 1x6)      LJ Wright    1-0-1-0

Dernbach returns after watching the fun from afar

14.1

Dernbach to Gulbadin Naib, no run, slower ball, big ole swing, edged to long leg and again he turns down one

14.2

Dernbach to Gulbadin Naib, 1 run, steps away and scoops into the air, off the toe of the bat - but it lands short of Bairstow coming in from long-on

14.3

Dernbach to Shapoor Zadran, 1 run, back of a length, steered towards third man to get off the strike

"I am wondering if still the warm up games are going on..." chirps Mitesh, "believe the real tournament starts tomorrow. Hope it does!"

14.4

Dernbach to Gulbadin Naib, no run, slower ball, outside off, completely dupes Gulbodin who had wound up for the big one and nearly fell over as he stepped outside leg to wait for it

14.5

Dernbach to Gulbadin Naib, SIX, pitched up outside off and smacked dismissively back over long-off for six! Now, if only they hadn't lost those eight early wickets...

14.6

Dernbach to Gulbadin Naib, SIX, short ball, wide of off, steps back and crunched< over deep midwicket, that's gone a long way

That's why everyone loves to watch Afghanistan. They've almost reached Kenya's low-water mark of 67, too

End of over 15 (14 runs) Afghanistan 64/8 (133 runs required from 30 balls, RR: 4.26, RRR: 26.60)
Gulbadin Naib    35* (24b 3x4 3x6)      JW Dernbach    2-0-16-1
Shapoor Zadran    3* (14b)      SCJ Broad    3-1-10-2

Swann back on to try and break this, er, niggly partnership

15.1

Swann to Shapoor Zadran, no run, round the wicket, defended back to the bowler

15.2

Swann to Shapoor Zadran, SIX, shot! Zadran goes down on one knee and carves a mighty mow over deep midwicket for six more

15.3

Swann to Shapoor Zadran, OUT, 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

Shapoor Zadran lbw b Swann 9 (25m 17b 0x4 1x6) SR: 52.94

That was a 44-run partnership for the ninth wicket. Not bad, particularly after what had gone before

15.4

Swann to Izatullah Dawlatzai, no run, over the wicket, spinning back from outside off and blocked

15.5

Swann to Izatullah Dawlatzai, no run, tossed up and defended back down the track

15.6

Swann to Izatullah Dawlatzai, no run, length ball, tapped to cover

End of over 16 (6 runs) Afghanistan 70/9 (127 runs required from 24 balls, RR: 4.37, RRR: 31.75)
Izatullah Dawlatzai    0* (3b)      GP Swann    4-2-22-2
Gulbadin Naib    35* (24b 3x4 3x6)      JW Dernbach    2-0-16-1

Broad rotates again, Finn on to trying shark out the final wicket

16.1

Finn to Gulbadin Naib, FOUR, short ball, swatted out towards wide long-on, a vicious kick off the turf takes the ball past Bairstow's nose and over the rope for four

16.2

Finn to Gulbadin Naib, no run, full length ball outside off, swings like a rusty gate and misses

16.3

Finn to Gulbadin Naib, no run, full bunger at the stumps, clubbed straight back down the ground to long-on, doesn't take a single - he's just having some batting practice, is Gulbodin

16.4

Finn to Gulbadin Naib, 1 wide, bounced, wide of the stumps ... but too high

16.4

Finn to Gulbadin Naib, no run, takes the pace off this time, Gulbodin swings and misses

16.5

Finn to Gulbadin Naib, FOUR, Finn to Gulbodin Naib, 1 run, full length and wide of the stumps, Gulbodin edges across and plays an outrageous scoop for four to deep backward square

Afghanistan's batting representative for today is still having fun out there

16.6

Finn to Gulbadin Naib, 1 run, full and wide and slapped into the covers and it gets Gulbodin to the striker's end for the next over

End of over 17 (10 runs) Afghanistan 80/9 (117 runs required from 18 balls, RR: 4.70, RRR: 39.00)
Gulbadin Naib    44* (30b 5x4 3x6)      ST Finn    4-0-24-1
Izatullah Dawlatzai    0* (3b)      GP Swann    4-2-22-2

17.1

Dernbach to Gulbadin Naib, no run, rolled out the back of the hand, punched to long-off, turned down one

17.2

Dernbach to Gulbadin Naib, OUT, 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

Gulbadin Naib c Morgan b Dernbach 44 (42m 32b 5x4 3x6) SR: 137.50

10.50pm/6.20pm: Right, it's been a rollercoaster ride but, at the end of it, England remain on course and Afghani pride is, just about, still intact. That's your lot from me, Andrew McGlashan's report is in and there'll be more news and reaction on the site later. I'll be back again for England v India on Sunday. Cheerio until then.

10.40pm/6.10pm: Out on the field, Nasser Hussain is conducting the first post-match interview with Nawroz Mangal, Afghanistan's captain. Unfortunately, Mangal is using an interpreter ... and Nasser completely forgets to get the translation until the last couple of questions. He's a bit more comfortable talking to the other interviewees.

Stuart Broad, England's captain: "We batted maturely, Luke Wright's innings was outstanding and when the guys came in at the end and struck the ball it was very powerful and exciting to see. We bowled well at the start, you're always going to concede a few runs in T20 but it was a good win. It's amazing to see teams like Afghanistan here, it's important to grow the game and hopefully this inspires people in their country. We'll be fired up and wanting a win [against India] and that's the only attitude to take when you cross the line."

Man of the Match, Luke Wright: "Yeah, it was a bit of a special evening, I was desperate to play well and win games for England so it's special to be man of the match. We tried to hang around and see what we could get early on. As I've got older I've gone away and tried to work on my game and prove that I'm a better player. The amount of guys I've seen have time away from England, like Ian Bell, and come back a better players, talking to other coaches and players about how I could improve. I want to bowl more, I've been used a a bit of a one-over specialist. It's something that came from my knee injury but I'll keep working on it."

10.35pm/6.05pm: No need to check the temperature of the giant, then, he'll not be felled today. Another regulation win for the bigger boys looks pretty bad on paper for Afghanistan but they bowled with heart once again and, albeit only one of them, thrashed merrily with the bat. There have been plenty of bigger embarrassments. Victory also sends England (and India) through to the Super Eights and means Afghanistan are out.
