    6.3 Another slower one and the batsman needed to make all the pace. Sadiq went for the slog but could not get the middle of the bat.The top-edge popped up for a simple catch. 57/1
    8.4 Bowled! That one came in and kept slightly low to give Burger his second wicket. Both openers have now been sent back to the pavillion. 70/2
    12.2 Given out after a long thought! It was a length ball and Shahzad tried to flick it. Hit him on his pad and it looked like it was probably going down the leg-side. But the umpire thought long before raising his finger. Four down now. 90/4
    10 Out, run-out! The batsman drove it to the leg-side and it looked like it was an easy two for most part of it. But the fielder from square-leg swooped down quickly and threw down the stumps at the non-striker's end. Three quick wickets here for Namibia. 77/2
    15.2 Another one pitched up, almost a yorker-length ball and the batsman slogged it across the line, almost like he was trying to hit it to the square-leg. Missed it completely and the timber is disturbed. 106/5
    17.5 Another yorker and he tried to slog it away. The batsmen took a single and then on impulse, went for a second. It was a suicidal second and the fielder could have run either batsman out. He chose the striker's end, the keeper only had to remove the bails. 124/6
    19.3 Tries to slog it again but the slash goes to the cover fielder and is neatly caught. 140/9
    18.4 Given out after a long thought! It was a length ball and Shahzad tried to flick it. Hit him on his pad and it looked like it was probably going down the leg-side. But the umpire thought long before raising his finger. Four down now. 128/7
    19.1 Full-toss and the batsman smacks him to the long-of region. It was a no-ball too and seeing that it was a no-ball, Nabi went for a second and the non-striker was found way short of the crease. The bad news is that he is run-out. The good news is that Nabi has the strike for the free-hit 136/8

    20 Yorker and this is too good for a lower-order batsman. The ball sneaks through and the stumps are castled. Afghanistanare bowled out for 146 in their 20 overs. 146/10

    0.1 Bowled him! It swung in a tad and the batsman looked to be going for a drive that early. Theball sneaks through and the tournament's top-scorer is gone for no score! 0/1
    0.5 Gone this time! This was definitely an edge and the wicket-keeper dived to his right to snatch an excellent take. The ball deviated away from the bat who tried to drive away from the body. Got only the outside part of the bat. 1/2
    3.5 Short ball and the batsman vd Westhuizen did not get any timing on it. He was far too late with the pull and the edge goes straight up and down into the wicket-keeper's hands. Four down and in bit of a trouble. 18/4
    2.2 Pitched up and drilled to the covers. But Mohammad Nabi jumps to his left and pulls off a good catch! Three wickets for Zadran, three for Afghanistan. 13/3
    12.3 Slower one I think and the batsman seems to be early in his shot. He swung across the line and the ball spooned up. It was well-taken in the end given that the ball went only up to the mid-on region and the fielder had to run from long-on to hold on to it. 65/6
    11.4 Gone, run-out! It was played away to the deep square-leg and the batsman wanted a second. There was a bit of a hesitation from Scoltz and that cost him his wicket as the throw from the deep was right over the bails. 63/5
    18.1 Run-out and Afghanistan are through to the World T20! Namibia is bowled out for 99 in their chase of 147. 99/10
    16 Bowled him! Pitched right and with the required-rate touching 14, he had no option but to attempt that hoick that he did. Unfortunately for him, it sneaks through and the timber is all over the place. 90/7
    17.2 Bowled him! It is amazing that it took them so long toattempt something different. Tried to scoop it over fine-leg but he only managed to guide it to his stumps. 96/8
    17.5 Yorker and bowled! Full ball and it was as straight as it could get, most number 10 batsmen would have found it difficult to play that. 98/9
