1.6 loud appeal for lbw and Bowden's crooked finger goes up! He angled it in from length around off and it hit the batsman in front of the leg stump, Bowden took his time for the decision, but from the first look it looked like it would have missed the leg stump 1/2
    0.5 oh what a beauty, that went right through Shamsur! Length delivery on the off stump nips in a tad and goes through the defence of the batsman, who played for the angle of the ball. The off stump goes for a walk, Shapoor roars and is mobbed by his team-mates 1/1
    24.3 that's gone through Mominul, Shenwari gets rid of the set batsman! He sent down a legspinner around off, Mominul came down the track to drive but missed the line of the ball because of the turn and the ball hit the middle stump. The umpires are checking for the no ball now, no angles are conclusive because there are fielders on either side of the pitch blocking the path of the cameras. So we can't see clearly where the foot lands, but he seems fine and Mominul walks back 88/4
    18.1 oh Nabi has struck with some sharp turn, stunned silence in the ground! He flighted it by pitching it just outside off, Mushfiqur was on the move as he tried to turn it to leg but missed and was struck in front of the off stump for a loud appeal as the ball turned and the finger went up. The captain has to go back 69/3
    38.6 fifth catch offered by Nasir and this time it's taken! It was a short of length ball well outside off, Nasir stayed back and chopped it straight into the hands of Shenwari at backward point. Big wicket for Afghanistan 161/5
    39.5 one more wicket falls in the Powerplay! Naeem came down the track and drove the length ball powerfully towards mid-off where Nawroz Mangal dived to his right for a good catch. It was going fast and flat 165/6
    43.6 gets the of stump! Nabi has done it, Ziaur took a step down to drive it on off, the ball spun in from just outside off and went through Ziaur's gate to hit the off stump. Afghanistan celebrate, onre wicket to go 205/9
    39.6 full delivery is driven down the ground and mid-off cuts it to one. Oh wait, he has a direct hit and looks like the batsman was lazy to make his ground. Bowden refers to third umpire. Replays show Razzak did not ground his bat even though he had made it and his bat was in the air when the ball hit the stumps. That's very irresponsible from a player who has played nearly 150 ODIs 165/7
    40.1 oh three wickets in three balls! Zadran pitched it down leg and Sunny wanted to play it off his hips but only managed a thin edge to the keeper who goes up, and so does the umpire's finger 165/8
    47.5 it's all over, Afghanistan have won, a landmark day for their cricket, the final wicket came after a swipe to midwicket, fielder gets under it and there's no fumbling this time 222/10
