View dismissal Noor Ali Zadran c †Hope b Holder 5 15 0 0 33.33
5.1 not the kind of delivery that deserves a wicket but Holder will take it. Short and enough room for Noor Ali to slash that away over point but he's late on the shot and can only manage a thick edge through to the keeper, who covered good ground to his right to take a leaping catch in front of first slip. 13/1
View dismissal Javed Ahmadi c †Hope b Cummins 81 102 8 2 79.41
36.4 so the century against a full-member outside of Zimbabwe will have to wait. Another short ball angled in from wide of the crease, this one's on middle, Ahmadi looks to arch back and help it over the keeper's head but can only feather an edge through to Hope. Solid knock, even if slow at times. 131/4
View dismissal Rahmat Shah c Carter b Gabriel 17 51 1 0 33.33
20.5 boundary ball becomes a wicket again. That's the second time today that an Afghanistan batsman has mucked up a cut shot. This one, at least, comes off the middle of the bat but goes straight to point 68/2
View dismissal Asghar Stanikzai* lbw b Nurse 2 11 0 0 18.18
25.1 pins him plumb! That's a timely strike for West Indies, and it comes with Stanikzai not picking the length properly. Staying deep in his crease, both legs on leg stump, he tries to flick a quick, but full delivery. Misses altogether with the wind helping the ball drift away and hit him in line with middle and leg 87/3
View dismissal Samiullah Shenwari c Holder b Nurse 22 46 0 1 47.82
37.5 poor shot and he's gone. This one's pushed through quicker, he looks to reverse sweep, but the ball lobs off the arm to slip. Umpire had no hesitation in raising his finger. Looked glove at first instant, though. Unfortunate end to a promising innings. Joel Wilson the umpire in question 131/5
Mohammad Nabi not out 27 30 2 0 90.00
View dismissal Afsar Zazai c Chase b Joseph 13 17 0 0 76.47
42.4 neatly done. It's the offcutter on off stump, the batsman looks to clip it past midwicket, but he is undone by the lack of pace and pops up a simple catch to short midwicket. But before West Indies can properly celebrate, the umpires have come together to check on the no-ball. And replays show that no part of his front foot has even cut the line! 154/6

View dismissal E Lewis c Amir Hamza b Gulbadin Naib 21 47 0 0 44.68
15.2 well taken by the man coming in from deep point. He comes into play as a result of a shot Lewis likes to play - the on the up smack over extra cover. But this time though the ball goes off the outside edge, swirls in the wind and makes a lot of demands of Hamza, who responds to them all well by appropriately moving to his right. 41/2
View dismissal KOA Powell lbw b Dawlat Zadran 2 9 0 0 22.22
2.1 terrific delivery this. Late inswing, gets this to bend back in from off stump, Powell is late on the forward defense and is hit on the pad first before it slid onto the bat. Enough for the umpire to be convinced it was in line with the stumps. As plumb as they come. Afghanistan couldn't have asked for a better start 3/1
View dismissal SD Hope c Mohammad Nabi b Rashid Khan 35 63 1 1 55.55
24.3 he has another, but credit for this should go to the slipper! What a catch! Nabi, moving swiftly to his left, low as well, sensational reflexes. He was brought into play by a legspinner from the legspinner - that's been rare today - which Hope prods at with no feet. Outside edge, academic. Catch, outstanding 70/5
View dismissal JN Mohammed c Mohammad Nabi b Rashid Khan 7 18 0 0 38.88
22.1 and he strikes first ball! He's like clockwork. So accurate. So deadly. Especially to batsmen who haven't faced him too many times. Here, Mohammed hangs back to a good length delivery, prodding at it with hard hands. There is just enough turn to snatch the outside edge and go through to slip 68/3
View dismissal RL Chase lbw b Rashid Khan 0 1 0 0 0.00
22.2 golden duck! Whoops of delight from the Afghanistan players, some of which might have come from Rashid himself who didn't even bother looking at the umpire. Bowls the googly, flummoxes the batsman completely, pins him on the pad and then just rushes over to celebrate with his team-mates 68/4
View dismissal JL Carter c sub (Shafiqullah) b Dawlat Zadran 19 56 0 0 33.92
39.2 straight down the throat of midwicket. As easy as they come. Skiddy short delivery from Dawlat, Carter had no room to play a full-blooded pull but still ended up going through with the shot, no power whatsoever and the man placed specifically for that stroke didn't have to move an inch. 135/8
View dismissal JO Holder* b Rashid Khan 0 1 0 0 0.00
24.4 through him! He's on a hat-trick again for the second time in two overs! What a talent! Nobody seems to be picking his googlies so he is tossing them out like fresh fruit. Lures Holder forward, makes the ball dip, and zip through the gap between bat and pad 70/6
View dismissal AR Nurse lbw b Rashid Khan 12 15 1 0 80.00
28.6 that's his fifth! He has bowled only 24 balls - and he has already changed the game on its head. That googly that is becoming the stuff of legend has another victim. Nurse plays back and is surprised by the swiftness and the magnitude of the turn off the pitch. Flicks all around it and is pinned lbw 90/7
View dismissal AS Joseph lbw b Rashid Khan 27 35 2 1 77.14
42.4 as straightforward as decisions go for an umpire. You knew this was coming. Predictably a wrong'un that fizzes back in from outside off, Joseph plays back to a delivery he should have well been forward, the ball spins back in to beat the inside edge and pin him plumb in front. No sooner than Rashid turned back to appeal, the umpire's finger was raised. 144/9
View dismissal ML Cummins b Rashid Khan 5 18 0 0 27.77
44.4 drifts in from wide of the crease, Cummins stabs forward and plays down the wrong line again. This one pitches on middle and spins away to hit the top of off. Best figures for Rashid in ODIs. These are the fourth-best figures in ODIs. 149/10
