19.2

Viljoen to Mohammad Nabi, (no ball) 1 run, OUT, Full-toss and the batsman smacks him to the long-of region.

Dawlat Zadran run out 4 (2b 1x4 0x6) SR: 200.00

19.2

Viljoen to Mohammad Nabi, FOUR, And that is what Afghanistan needed, clearing of the feet and a Viv Richards-like slog over mid-wicket! Good shot!

Viljoen to Izatullah Dawlatzai, 2 runs
