    53.2 gone! Slow and loopy on off, spun back in sharply, missed his bat and struck on the back pad. Boom easy decision 147/7
    44.4 could be close and yes! Tossed up on off, doesn't pick the wrong one, misses his bat and thuds around the shin. Loud cry and it was heading middle. 126/6

    53.4 another one bites the dust. Slower again and spun back in sharply, Smit was playing for the wrong'un and thuds around his shin. Seems like they are in hurry. 147/8
    54.4 arm ball, quicker, flatter. Zhiv was playing for the turn but it doesn't as it thuds on his pad. Out without scoring. 149/9
    62.1 jaffa! Length ball on off stump, held its line and straightens enough to fox his defence as he played inside the line of the delivery and the ball kissed the off bail. 172/10

    79.3 sweeps and gets the glove to the leg slip fielder, Erasmus. 225/4
    18.3 and Namibia gets the breakthrough..Groenewald able to get it for them...Comes round the wicket and pitches this on a length around the off stump, this slides on too quickly beating the defence of Zadran, strikes the pad and found infront of the stumps..This will do a great to their confidence after a poor start .. 79/1
    49.1 goes for the slog and hits it straight down the throat of Smit at deep midwicket. 166/2
    59.3 goes for the big heave and miscues to the fielder at midwicket. 186/3
    81 uses his feet and hits in the air forward of square leg and Snyman takes the catch. 227/5
    94.5 exposes his leg stump as he shuffles across and looking to glance it fine. 258/7

    2 quicker delivery and Baard in two minds, thinking of leaving it and it straightens hits the pad in line, loud appeal and given. 7/1
    33.2 he has done Waqar here. Full, swings in late and struck right in front. France doesn't look happy with the decision. 123/7
    5.5 strikes the pad in line and loud appeal, given by the umpire. 9/2
    19.1 he has struck first ball. Tossed up on middle and off, tried to pull but he was foxed by the spin on the ball as it thuds on his back pad. He just closed the face of the blade at the last moment as the ball missed his bat and went on to hit the pad. 66/3

    24.5 bowled'em. It was a wrong one, quicker and flatter too. Kotze was hanging on the back foot and tries to play from the crease, doesn't pick the wong'un and it snaked through his defence to rattle the stumps. 89/4
    28.3 edged and gone! Fuller on off stump and Burger goes for the drive, thickish outside edge and Shahzad snaffles a good catch, 106/5
    28.5 another one! What was he attempting to do there? Tossed up on middle and off, took on the full and tried to break the shackles early on. Doesn't get his timing right and Dawlat at mid-on, runs across and takes a good catch. 106/6
    34 no way he could have played that. Fuller from around the stumps, swings in from outside off. Scholtz was late in getting his bat down and it was way too late. Boom! Off pole gets a whack. 124/8
    34.4 Five-for for Zahir. Tossed up on off stump, wrong one too. Smit gets on the front foot and edges to Shahzad at first slip. And some Champion Dance celebrations from Shahzad. 126/9
    35.3 Yes Sir! It swung in this time around, Groenewald was hanging on the back foot and it rattles the off pole. What a performance from Afghanistan. They have outplayed the opposition in all aspects of the game. 126/10
