    9.1 that's as plumb as it can get. This one was a fast leg-cutter that pitched on middle and off, he looked to sweep, but was better off playing straight. Once he was hit on the pad, there was little doubt as to what the umpire's decision was going to be. He raised the finger in a jiffy. Afghanistan are back into this. 85/2
    8.5 a lollipop delivery has given them a wicket. It was too short, he looked to pull but didn't get hold of it and found the only man at the boundary, at deep square leg. He takes a dolly. Should come as major relief for Afghanistan 84/1
    10.1 how unfortunate is that? This was drilled into the gap at deep extra cover, but MacLeod slipped as he turned for the second. But there was a glimmer of hope as the throw from the deep came to the wrong end. The bowler nearly had a shy at the stumps, but lobbed a throw to the keeper in the end, Shahzad, who was yelling to get the ball, wasn't going to miss it as he knocks the bails off. Big moment in the match? Three gone in quick time 95/3
    18.5 swung across the line, can only slice it to the point fielder. The pressure has got to him, he simply had to tee off. Afghanistan wold believe they are into the home stretch. Industrious innings, but couldn't bring out the big hits when he had to 149/5
    12.4 mighty quick stumping, but was the back foot plonked back in time when the bails came off? It was nicely tossed up wrong-un, he stepped out and then looked to sweep, missed it completely as the keeper removed the bails. The back foot was at least a metre outside the crease, and it was too late by the time he tried to drag it back. He's made up for the lapse in the previous over. Afghanistan continue to make inroads after that strong start. 108/4
