ICC World Twenty20 - 12th match, Group C

Afghanistan v South Africa

South Africa won by 59 runs

0.1

Shapoor Zadran to Smith, no run, fizzer! Cracking delivery, outside off, lifting, seaming, and bursting past the edge. Lively start!

0.2

Shapoor Zadran to Smith, FOUR, a touch too short this time, too much width as well, and Smith clobbers that through the covers for the first boundary

0.3

Shapoor Zadran to Smith, FOUR, short again, too wide, and pulled emphatically through wide mid-on. Two in two

0.4

Shapoor Zadran to Smith, no run, fuller length this time, still wide of off stump, but no stroke from Smith

0.5

Shapoor Zadran to Smith, no run, full and swinging away from wide outside off. Smith reaches for a cover-drive but can't connect properly

0.6

Shapoor Zadran to Smith, FOUR, too wide once again, swinging away and Smith reaches with greater success this time. A futile chase on the cover boundary, and that's an expensive start

South Africa 12/0   Shapoor Zadran 1-0-12-0

2.1

Shapoor Zadran to Smith, 1 run, clipped off the toes, out to square leg

2.2

Shapoor Zadran to Kallis, no run, that's a snorting delivery - real lift from a good length and the keeper had to take off vertically to pouch that. Kallis looks non-plussed

2.3

Shapoor Zadran to Kallis, 1 run, had to hurry to make his ground, but beat the shy

2.4

Shapoor Zadran to Smith, FOUR, full and targetting the blockhole, Smith had to dig that out late but squeezed it through the gap at third man

2.5

Shapoor Zadran to Smith, 2 runs, too short and wide, but just helped into the leg-side with a measured pull. Tidied up in the deep

2.6

Shapoor Zadran to Smith, SIX, short, squatted away, a fat top-edge, and that clears everything and everyone! Plops over the fine-leg boundary for six! A brisk start from the captain

South Africa 31/1   Shapoor Zadran 2-0-26-0

19.1

Shapoor Zadran to JA Morkel, 1 leg bye, good bowling, saw Morkel making room, and followed him down the leg-side with a full delivery

19.2

Shapoor Zadran to van der Merwe, no run, a wild swing, and no contact. Unsubtle

19.3

Shapoor Zadran to van der Merwe, 1 run, a low full-toss, not a bad delivery in the circumstances, and long-off fields

19.4

Shapoor Zadran to JA Morkel, OUT, a massive swipe, a vast spiralling top-edge, the captain calls for a steepler, fumbles at the first attempt, but clings onto the rebound. What a showing from Afghanistan!

JA Morkel c Nawroz Mangal b Shapoor Zadran 23 (20m 17b 2x4 1x6) SR: 135.29

19.5

Shapoor Zadran to Steyn, 1 run, in the blockhole again, drilled down to long-off, and they turn down the second run

19.6

Shapoor Zadran to van der Merwe, 1 run, full toss, panned out to deep point, and that's an exemplary display from Afghanistan. South Africa's total is still substantial, but it's been a spirited effort from a team who were competing against the likes of Jersey and Denmark only a couple of years ago

South Africa 139/7   Shapoor Zadran 3-0-29-1
