Mirwais Ashraf to Bosman,
1 leg bye, OUT,
inswinger, slightly misdirected and flicks the pad, but what's this ... a sharp throw from fine leg as he dallied over his second run ... and that's going to be out! Exceptional fielding, and Afghanistan have their first wicket of the match!
LE Bosman run out 0 (6m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00
Mohammad Nabi to Smith,
Nabi strikes! Good length again, Smith was drawn into the stroke but was onto the ball early, and sent a spiralling chance down to long-off, where the skipper steadied himself to take a fine catch
GC Smith c Nawroz Mangal b Mohammad Nabi 27 (20m 14b 4x4 1x6) SR: 192.85
Nawroz Mangal to de Villiers,
and that's just reward for Afghanistan! De Villiers attacks once again, but is deceived in the flight, and that's an easy stumping as the third wicket falls
AB de Villiers st †Mohammad Shahzad b Nawroz Mangal 17 (17m 21b 1x4 1x6) SR: 80.95
Hamid Hassan to Kallis,
down the leg-side, a loose flick, and that's snaffled! Kallis walks, and Afghanistan have their fourth!
JH Kallis c †Mohammad Shahzad b Hamid Hassan 34 (35m 33b 0x4 2x6) SR: 103.03
Hamid Hassan to Boucher,
full length, dead in front of middle, and that's plumb! Simon Taufel raises the finger, and Afghanistan are having a real go here!
MV Boucher lbw b Hamid Hassan 4 (3m 6b 0x4 0x6) SR: 66.66
Hamid Hassan to Duminy,
belted fiercely out to the covers, but Mangal clings onto a blinder, low to his right, to send Duminy on his way! Another wicket falls, and that was timely in the extreme
JP Duminy c Nawroz Mangal b Hamid Hassan 25 (23m 21b 0x4 2x6) SR: 119.04
Shapoor Zadran to JA Morkel,
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
