View dismissal Mohammad Shahzad c Chameera b Mathews 8 13 12 1 0 66.66
2.5 and Shahzad has to go now. Mathews has done the trick. Stuck to his line and length and Shahzad could not resist another massive heave. He backs away and looks for a pull into the leg side but a bit of outswing helps take a leading edge which lobs up for mid-on to take. Not a great shot, an uncomfortable stay ends. 12/1
View dismissal Noor Ali Zadran b Herath 20 38 23 3 0 86.95
8.1 bowled im, around his legs. Herath fires one full and quick on leg. Noor Ali shuffles across and misses his premeditated sweep. The ball spins to hit the side of leg stump. A decent innings but lacked fluency. 44/2
View dismissal Asghar Stanikzai* c †Chandimal b Perera 62 74 47 3 4 131.91
18.6 gone. End of a sensational knock from Stanikzai. Went down for a cheeky ramp this time, but Perera sticks to his length - full and wide - and forces Stanikzai to alter is stroke. He tries to dab a reverse lap past short third man but the ball lobs up off after Stanikzai failed to make adequate contact. Chandi takes an easy catch. 136/7
View dismissal Karim Sadiq c †Chandimal b Perera 0 6 7 0 0 0.00
9.3 gone. Sadiq's iffy stay has ended now. All gone to pieces. Runs down to the pitch, looking for another big slog down the ground. Gets a faint edge which is gleefully accepted by Chandimal. 46/3
View dismissal Mohammad Nabi lbw b Herath 3 4 4 0 0 75.00
10.6 given, Afghanistan's struggles are continuing. Flat on middle, and skids on with the arm to strike Nabi plumb in front. Easy decision for the umpire and Afghanistan are spiralling downwards 51/4
View dismissal Samiullah Shenwari c Perera b Kulasekara 31 23 14 3 2 221.42
16.3 Shenwari holes out this time. Pretty good line that, full and wide outside off. Shenwari backs away just a touch, and goes after it. gets under it sufficiently but not enough power behind the lofted drive. Skied and almost clears long-off but Perera catches it a foot or so inside. 112/5
View dismissal Shafiqullah c Thirimanne b Perera 5 12 7 0 0 71.42
18.4 dragged to deep midwicket. Shafiqulalh, trying to get under one just like his captain, does so but fails to time the delivery. More of the inside half and it carries all the way with that angular bat 132/6

View dismissal LD Chandimal c Samiullah Shenwari b Mohammad Nabi 18 22 17 2 1 105.88
5.2 gone. Nabi does it. Stanikzai goes to his main bowler and gets rewarded. Nabi may have seen Chandi advancing and shortened the length. Chandimal goes for a big heave but doesn't get it off the middle, it lobs up off the inside half and lodges in midwicket's hands, who takes it over his head 41/1
TM Dilshan not out 83 83 56 8 3 148.21
View dismissal HDRL Thirimanne b Rashid Khan 6 14 13 1 0 46.15
8.4 bowled im. Rashid's legbreak induces the inside edge, which clatters into the stumps. Thirimanne was struggling to pick the variations, and wasn't able to rotate the strike either. Slightly flatter from Rashid outside off and Thirimanne throws his hands at it, away from his body 58/2
View dismissal NLTC Perera run out (†Mohammad Shahzad) 12 14 8 0 1 150.00
12.1 Samiullah Shenwari to Dilshan, great fielding by Shahzad, has he produced a wicket? The third umpire is called for but Perera looks in by a whisker or two. No, says the third umpire. He has given it out. Not so sure about that decision. I'd have given it not out. Perera isn't too happy. Flat delivery down leg, Shahzad can't collect cleanly and Perera calls him through for one. shahzad runs back, collects and hits the stumps directly. The moment the zing bails light up, Perera's bat seems on the crease but by the time the bails were dislodged, it seemed that Perera had make his ground. Ah, well, the umpire doesn't agree 85/3
View dismissal CK Kapugedera run out (Mohammad Nabi) 10 13 9 1 0 111.11
15.1 Mohammad Nabi to Dilshan, that is clearly gone. No need for the third umpire there. Low full toss outside off, Dilshan drives it back and Nabi deflects it onto the non-striker's stumps with Kapu just making his way back after backing up. Another clever piece of fielding to keep Afghanistan in it 113/4
