View dismissal CAK Walton c Noor Ali Zadran b Mohammad Nabi 29 17 4 1 170.58
4.3 and a wicket right after the stoppage. It's full and straight, right in Walton's wheelhouse. Walton is able to get underneath that but isn't able to get much behind it. A mis-timed skew more than anything carries to long-on. Walton done in by the injury to his team-mate. Sucked away his momentum 42/1
View dismissal E Lewis c Gulbadin Naib b Karim Janat 25 28 1 1 89.28
9.1 and again. Lewis falls in the same fashion again and again and again and again. A short delivery on middle and leg, Lewis picks the length early and looks to clear midwicket but doesn't get enough on it. Straight to deep midwicket who takes a simple reverse-cupped catch on the boundary. Two in two this series, and a countless number of times prior too, the method of dismissal is the same 74/2
View dismissal MN Samuels c Najibullah Zadran b Gulbadin Naib 22 26 0 2 84.61
13.3 holes out. A length ball on leg stump, enough room, and right in the slot. But he doesn't get under this slog. Gets it off the inside half of the bat and lobs it up gently for long-on who grabs it in front of his throat 97/3

View dismissal Gulbadin Naib b Badree 12 14 0 1 85.71
2.6 and comes back with the wicket. Great bowling. Quick and straight, on leg. Gulbadin plays around the ball, gets there late and doesn't make contact. All requisites for a wicket against Badree. 15/1
View dismissal Noor Ali Zadran c Taylor b Williams 6 6 1 0 100.00
3.2 another one falls. A hard length. Boundary and wicket. Afghanistan handicapping themselves. Back of a length on leg, Noor Ali is far too late on his pull and the ball lobs to short fine leg. A simple catch. Afghanistan batsmen look so hurried for pace, not just tonight but yesterday too. A sign of the step-up in quality they are facing 19/2
View dismissal Asghar Stanikzai* c Simmons b Brathwaite 9 12 0 1 75.00
7.2 another one beaten in pace. The hard length again. This is quicker and shorter and suddenly, Stanikzai has no idea what's coming at him. So late on the pull that all he can muster is a mis-timed pull into the hands of midwicket. 40/5
View dismissal Samiullah Shenwari c †Walton b Williams 0 1 0 0 0.00
3.3 two in two. Afghanistan falling away. Back of a length on off, Samiullah tries to get one to third man but the ball bounces extra and takes a thin edge through to the keeper. Beaten in pace and bounce again. Not looking too good 19/3
View dismissal Mohammad Nabi run out (Taylor/†Walton) 8 11 1 0 72.72
6.6 from Narine, and that is surely another run-out that Stanikzai is involved in. Flat delivery on leg, nudged to short fine leg. Nabi sets off, but Stanikzai yells "nooo". Does so far too late and by the time Nabi turns and makes his way back, the bails are off. Afghanistan's amateurish cricket continues. 34/4
View dismissal Karim Janat c Brathwaite b Williams 20 15 1 2 133.33
13.3 high, high, taken. Full delivery on off, Janat gets underneath that and sends it a mile into the air. Not good timing, not much distance. The ball lobs in the air for Brathwaite to get across from mid-off, a reverse-cupped catch gives West Indies the T20 series 93/10
View dismissal Shafiqullah run out (Williams) 1 1 0 0 100.00
7.4 Brathwaite to Karim Janat, another run-out. Disarray. Back of a length outside off, pushed towards cover. The non-striker sets off, the striker does too before saying no. Both batsmen are at the same end. In all this time, Kesrick picks up and under-arms an accurate throw at the bowler's end. Excellent fielding but didn't realise he had so much time. if that missed, it would have been an overthrow. He had so much time. Doesn't matter, for now. Mistakes galore for Afghanistan 41/6
View dismissal Najibullah Zadran b Brathwaite 11 8 1 0 137.50
9.2 Afghanistan seven down and sinking rapidly. Fuller than god length outside off, Najibullah tries to cut but it's too close to him. A thick inside edge clatters into the stumps, but was atleast trying to manufacture momentum 52/7
View dismissal Rashid Khan b Narine 2 4 0 0 50.00
10.4 Afghanistan now eight down. Another carrom ball outside off, Rashid pokes with his feet rooted to the crease. Gets bat on it, but just the inside half. Another one chopped back into the stumps. 55/8
View dismissal Dawlat Zadran b Taylor 9 5 0 1 180.00
12.2 hasn't that ball come back into the reckoning of late. A sensational pin-point yorker on off and middle. Dawlat exposes his defense as soon as he chose to clear his front leg. Goes past the bat and into the stumps 85/9
