21 September 2012 - night match (20-over match)

Shapoor Zadran to Kieswetter, OUT, gone, played on! Zadran's arms are outspread in celebration and Kieswetter trudges off after seeing out a wicket maiden to open the match! This one did bounce a bit, the batsman stayed back, tried to open the face and use the pace on the ball and ended up blocking down into the ground in front of the stumps, the ball flicking off the bails on its way back up

C Kieswetter b Shapoor Zadran 0 (4m 6b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

England 0/1   AD Hales 0* (0b)   Shapoor Zadran 1-1-0-1

Karim Sadiq to Wright, OUT, full and Wright attacks, drives low back down the track and hits the stumps ... Sadiq got a finger on it, though, and Hales is on his way, run-out backing up! That's unfortunate but sharp work from Sadiq, who got down quickly and just got a touch on the ball as it bounced up and into the top of middle stump

AD Hales run out 31 (39m 27b 5x4 0x6) SR: 114.81

England 69/2   LJ Wright 34* (22b 5x4 1x6)   Karim Sadiq 1.1-0-4-0

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   LJ Wright 75* (47b 8x4 3x6)   Izatullah Dawlatzai 2-0-24-1

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

England 159/4   LJ Wright 76* (48b 8x4 3x6)   Izatullah Dawlatzai 2.2-0-28-2

Dawlat Zadran to Bairstow, OUT, slower ball, full and at the stumps, clears the front foot and miscued towards long-on, who takes a solid running catch - the batsmen crossed, though, so Wright will be on strike

JM Bairstow c Karim Sadiq b Dawlat Zadran 12 (10m 5b 1x4 1x6) SR: 240.00

England 194/5   LJ Wright 97* (54b 8x4 6x6)   Dawlat Zadran 3.5-0-20-1
