15.2 well taken by the man coming in from deep point. He comes into play as a result of a shot Lewis likes to play - the on the up smack over extra cover. But this time though the ball goes off the outside edge, swirls in the wind and makes a lot of demands of Hamza, who responds to them all well by appropriately moving to his right. 41/2
    2.1 terrific delivery this. Late inswing, gets this to bend back in from off stump, Powell is late on the forward defense and is hit on the pad first before it slid onto the bat. Enough for the umpire to be convinced it was in line with the stumps. As plumb as they come. Afghanistan couldn't have asked for a better start 3/1
    24.3 he has another, but credit for this should go to the slipper! What a catch! Nabi, moving swiftly to his left, low as well, sensational reflexes. He was brought into play by a legspinner from the legspinner - that's been rare today - which Hope prods at with no feet. Outside edge, academic. Catch, outstanding 70/5
    22.1 and he strikes first ball! He's like clockwork. So accurate. So deadly. Especially to batsmen who haven't faced him too many times. Here, Mohammed hangs back to a good length delivery, prodding at it with hard hands. There is just enough turn to snatch the outside edge and go through to slip 68/3
    22.2 golden duck! Whoops of delight from the Afghanistan players, some of which might have come from Rashid himself who didn't even bother looking at the umpire. Bowls the googly, flummoxes the batsman completely, pins him on the pad and then just rushes over to celebrate with his team-mates 68/4
    39.2 straight down the throat of midwicket. As easy as they come. Skiddy short delivery from Dawlat, Carter had no room to play a full-blooded pull but still ended up going through with the shot, no power whatsoever and the man placed specifically for that stroke didn't have to move an inch. 135/8
    24.4 through him! He's on a hat-trick again for the second time in two overs! What a talent! Nobody seems to be picking his googlies so he is tossing them out like fresh fruit. Lures Holder forward, makes the ball dip, and zip through the gap between bat and pad 70/6
    28.6 that's his fifth! He has bowled only 24 balls - and he has already changed the game on its head. That googly that is becoming the stuff of legend has another victim. Nurse plays back and is surprised by the swiftness and the magnitude of the turn off the pitch. Flicks all around it and is pinned lbw 90/7
    42.4 as straightforward as decisions go for an umpire. You knew this was coming. Predictably a wrong'un that fizzes back in from outside off, Joseph plays back to a delivery he should have well been forward, the ball spins back in to beat the inside edge and pin him plumb in front. No sooner than Rashid turned back to appeal, the umpire's finger was raised. 144/9
    44.4 drifts in from wide of the crease, Cummins stabs forward and plays down the wrong line again. This one pitches on middle and spins away to hit the top of off. Best figures for Rashid in ODIs. These are the fourth-best figures in ODIs. 149/10
