View dismissal Mohammad Shahzad c Benn b Badree 24 25 22 2 1 109.09
5.6 tame dismissal. Shahzad danced down the pitch, stepping to leg and hit him straight to mid-off who took a decent, if facile, low catch 33/2
View dismissal Usman Ghani b Badree 4 8 6 1 0 66.66
1.5 bowled him! The wrong'un and Ghani doesn't pick it, the ball turning nicely through the gate 8/1
View dismissal Asghar Stanikzai* c Bravo b Badree 16 28 22 0 1 72.72
9.3 attempts an identical shot over long-on but skies it this time to a calm, grateful Bravo at long-on who takes the ball comfortably 50/3
View dismissal Gulbadin Naib c Bravo b Sammy 8 22 14 0 0 57.14
11.5 a slowish, loopy delivery and a touch shorter, he tries to loft it but can't get underneath it and Bravo holds onto the skier at long-on 56/5
View dismissal Samiullah Shenwari c Sammy b Benn 1 4 3 0 0 33.33
10.2 late-cut to Sammy at the first and lone slip who takes a very slick, smart catch, low to his right. Shenwari looks aghast and confused at his stroke, as indeed we all are 52/4
Najibullah Zadran not out 48 45 40 4 1 120.00
View dismissal Mohammad Nabi c Samuels b Russell 9 21 8 1 0 112.50
16.3 what a catch - what teamwork! Nabi drove this full toss uppishly to Sammy's right at mid-off, whose dive to his right palmed it behind him where Samuels was lurking to take the rebound! 90/6
View dismissal Shafiqullah c Fletcher b Russell 4 9 4 0 0 100.00
18.1 a huge slog across the line but he can only sky it into the leg-side, and Fletcher takes it comfortably - that was in the air for a long, long time 103/7

View dismissal J Charles b Hamid Hassan 22 21 15 1 2 146.66
5.3 bowled him! Cut back sharply on Charles who is beaten for pace, and he chops on 33/2
View dismissal E Lewis c Rashid Khan b Amir Hamza 0 8 7 0 0 0.00
2.3 Lewis - duck on debut! - a pretty awful stroke, to be honest. Stepping back in his crease, trying to muller it over midwicket but skies it to deep midwicket where Rashid swallows it comfortably 17/1

View dismissal D Ramdin st †Mohammad Shahzad b Rashid Khan 18 35 24 0 0 75.00
15.6 he's got him! He's done him in the flight and Ramdin, dancing down the pitch, tried to flog him out of the park but was beaten by a touch of turn. Shahzad whipped off the bails and celebrated as only he knows how 89/5

13.6 goddim! Darted this in, Bravo tries to work it off his pads but misses and he's trapped in front 79/4
View dismissal AD Russell run out (Rashid Khan/†Mohammad Shahzad) 7 19 9 0 0 77.77
17.3 from Samiullah Shenwari, Russell corrects his stroke, crashing it out to the off side for a single. He loses his balance and is slow out of the traps. Russell turns for two, but Sammy sends him back - trouble here! In comes the ball to Shazad (the wrong end), so he brilliantly throws down the non-striker's stumps to leave Russell a foot short! 98/6
View dismissal DJG Sammy* c Samiullah Shenwari b Gulbadin Naib 6 17 10 0 0 60.00
18.4 he's off balance, trying to loft this over cover but Afghanistan have another one! A loose shot in the circumstances, picking out deep extra cover who, cool as a cucumber, takes an easy catch 107/7
View dismissal CR Brathwaite c Najibullah Zadran b Mohammad Nabi 13 11 8 0 2 162.50
19.3 lofted it high, high, long, long and here comes Naib who takes an amazing, brave, brilliant running catch! What an incredible take under pressure, falling awkwardly and he looks in some pain. Stunning! 114/8
