    5.6 tame dismissal. Shahzad danced down the pitch, stepping to leg and hit him straight to mid-off who took a decent, if facile, low catch 33/2
    1.5 bowled him! The wrong'un and Ghani doesn't pick it, the ball turning nicely through the gate 8/1
    9.3 attempts an identical shot over long-on but skies it this time to a calm, grateful Bravo at long-on who takes the ball comfortably 50/3
    11.5 a slowish, loopy delivery and a touch shorter, he tries to loft it but can't get underneath it and Bravo holds onto the skier at long-on 56/5
    10.2 late-cut to Sammy at the first and lone slip who takes a very slick, smart catch, low to his right. Shenwari looks aghast and confused at his stroke, as indeed we all are 52/4

    16.3 what a catch - what teamwork! Nabi drove this full toss uppishly to Sammy's right at mid-off, whose dive to his right palmed it behind him where Samuels was lurking to take the rebound! 90/6
    18.1 a huge slog across the line but he can only sky it into the leg-side, and Fletcher takes it comfortably - that was in the air for a long, long time 103/7

    5.3 bowled him! Cut back sharply on Charles who is beaten for pace, and he chops on 33/2
    2.3 Lewis - duck on debut! - a pretty awful stroke, to be honest. Stepping back in his crease, trying to muller it over midwicket but skies it to deep midwicket where Rashid swallows it comfortably 17/1

    6.2 Rashid's done him with a beautiful delivery! The googly! Samuels, miles back in his crease, is late onto it - nor does he pick it - and chops on 38/3
    15.6 he's got him! He's done him in the flight and Ramdin, dancing down the pitch, tried to flog him out of the park but was beaten by a touch of turn. Shahzad whipped off the bails and celebrated as only he knows how 89/5
    13.6 goddim! Darted this in, Bravo tries to work it off his pads but misses and he's trapped in front 79/4
    17.3 Russell corrects his stroke, crashing it out to the off side for a single. He loses his balance and is slow out of the traps. Russell turns for two, but Sammy sends him back - trouble here! In comes the ball to Shazad (the wrong end), so he brilliantly throws down the non-striker's stumps to leave Russell a foot short! 98/6
    18.4 he's off balance, trying to loft this over cover but Afghanistan have another one! A loose shot in the circumstances, picking out deep extra cover who, cool as a cucumber, takes an easy catch 107/7
    19.3 lofted it high, high, long, long and here comes Naib who takes an amazing, brave, brilliant running catch! What an incredible take under pressure, falling awkwardly and he looks in some pain. Stunning! 114/8
