View dismissal Usman Ghani run out (Taylor/Brathwaite/Williams) 8 13 1 0 61.53
4.1 Williams to Asghar Stanikzai, what happened there? Stanikzai ball-watching. Ghani runs two and is still run-out. A shortish delivery outside off, tapped towards short third man. Ghani sets off. Stanikzai puts his hand up in denial without looking at his partner. Taylor picks up and lobs his throw over the bowler's head. Ghani sets off for his second run but mid-off picks up and returns a better throw to the bowler who removed the bails. Not good from Stanikzai. There was probably one there, but could have done more to prevent the run-out 26/2
View dismissal Gulbadin Naib b Badree 12 8 3 0 150.00
3.2 and that's through Naib. Full, straight again. Not changed much. Naib brings his bat down at an awkward angle and then plays down the wrong line. Goes through his defense and hits middle and leg stump. Not a very astute shot, considering the type of bowler Badree is 21/1
View dismissal Asghar Stanikzai* c & b Williams 5 8 1 0 62.50
4.5 hurried for pace and Stanikzai's gone. Afghanistan in tatters. A quick, short bouncer on off. Stanikzai gets to his pull far too late. The ball hits the splice of the bat and lobs back to the bowler for a simple catch. Clever bowling, if you're dropping short, it has to be quick. 26/3
View dismissal Karim Janat c †Walton b Brathwaite 8 11 1 0 72.72
8.5 looks for a big hit and gone. Short delivery on off and middle, the pressure of dots has resulted in a wild swing. A thick edge is easily collected by the keeper. Not a bad plan, execution nowhere close. 42/4
View dismissal Samiullah Shenwari lbw b Narine 7 20 0 0 35.00
11.1 pinned in front! Umpire Brathwaite raises his finger. This was the quicker offbreak, skids in and keeps a touch low. Shenwari is stapled to the crease as he plays across the line and misses. As plumb as it can get 46/6
View dismissal Mohammad Nabi c Taylor b Brathwaite 2 6 0 0 33.33
10.5 Afghanistan five down and sinking. Nabi backs away outside leg. Brathwaite digs it shorter and wider outside off. The batsman reaches out and slashes in the air. Gives an easy catch to deep third man 46/5
View dismissal Rashid Khan c Narine b Taylor 33 27 2 2 122.22
18.5 slower short ball on off, hip-high delivery, Rashid picks the change-up but pulls it flat and hard to Narine at midwicket. The fielder times his jump to perfection. Rashid falls for a career-best 33 94/9
View dismissal Shafiqullah c & b Narine 0 3 0 0 0.00
11.4 spooned back to the bowler. Wrong shot at the wrong time again! Story of this innings. Narine holds this offbreak back, lovely dip. The batsman dares to play across the line, does so early, and chips a return catch 46/7
View dismissal Najibullah Zadran c †Walton b Narine 4 5 0 0 80.00
13.4 Walton with the big gloves snaps it up! Narine has his third. Looped up slower on middle, bounces more than the batsman expected it to. He attempts the reverse sweep, plays early, and the top edge is tracked down by the keeper 58/8
View dismissal Amir Hamza c †Walton b Williams 21 17 1 1 123.52
19.6 slower cutter on off, slogs early, shoots a top edge up in the air. Walton snaffles it. No issues there 110/10

View dismissal CAK Walton c Usman Ghani b Shapoor Zadran 22 15 5 0 146.66
3.3 taken this time. A shorter length on middle, Walton chooses to pull. Got there slightly late, hurried for pace. He can only skew his stroke towards midwicket, who dives forward and completes a quality catch. Never easy to get your fingers underneath those 33/1
View dismissal E Lewis c Samiullah Shenwari b Karim Janat 26 16 1 3 162.50
7.2 how many times does Lewis get out like that? That';s the only way I can remember him getting out. Shortish on middle and leg, Lewis pulls in the air and finds square leg who dives to his left to take a great catch. A perfect example of how strengths can become weaknesses with even slightly flawed execution 63/2
View dismissal MN Samuels b Shapoor Zadran 35 36 2 2 97.22
14.1 straight through. A slower ball on middle and leg, Samuels wants to send this out of the ground. But doesn't make contact. The leg stump is uprooted. Swung across the line, instead of going straight. Shapoor sends him off with a long stare. 99/4
View dismissal LMP Simmons b Rashid Khan 6 3 0 1 200.00
8.6 swings across the line and misses this time. The straight googly on middle and leg, Simmons chooses a good option - the sweep. But you've to connect if you're attacking an accurate legspinner. Simmons doesn't and off he goes. 82/3
