    0.5 Jamali strikes in his first over. Banged in short and wide outside off, Ura shapes to cut and ends up slicing it to Shahid at deep third man. Ura has been asked to wait... The umpire's check for a possible no-ball. Jamali's front foot is fine 7/1
    1.2 Ghous leaps and takes high-fives from his team-mates. Openers fall. Siaka ventures down the track, Ghous is wary of it as he fires it flat and outside off. Siaka can't connect. The keeper does the rest. Dodson pulls off the finger-on-the-lip celebration.. 8/2
    3.5 picks out cover. Looped up outside off as Ghous held this one back. Vala was a bit early into an airy drive. Chipped tamely to cover 21/3
    11.3 PNG are sliding quickly. Dodson thumps the bowler's chest. Good length and on off, Bau seeks to swipe it across the line. But the ball twists in his hands to foil his timing. Skewered to long-off 61/5
    8.5 PNG four down. Vare ventures down the track and yorks himself. Shahid shoots through the legs and hits the timber. He sets off on an airplane celebration, a la Shoiab Akthar 42/4

    14.2 Patel gives it ample air outside off. Pala comes down the track and misses an almighty slog-sweep. He is beaten in flight. Patel strikes the off stump and roars 88/6
    16.6 holes out to long-on. Dai slams his bat onto the turf as he trudges back. Flighted around off, Dai takes the aerial route and slog-sweeps it to Shahid at the edge of the long-on boundary. Big, big wicket for USA 115/7
    17.2 USA break into celebrations, again. Short, lifting ball on off, Vanua drops into the pitch and calls for a quick single. Amini is short of his crease. Shahid was sharp to under-arm flick it onto the strikers' end 116/8
    18.1 full on off, driven past the covers. Soper pushes on for a second. The fielder from sweeper fires an accurate throw to the bowler, who takes the bails off. Vanua out for a duck 118/9
