2.1 a wicket finally, he swings against the short ball and gets a top-edge to mid-on. Archer pitched it short again, good pace, Hazratullah opened his stance again and pulled but only managed a top edge for Moeen Ali 17/1
    11.4 gone through him and his off stump is gone! Noor Ali hardly moved his feet for that ball that was around short of length just outside off, he brought his bat down with an awkward angle and got an inside edge onto the off stump 49/3
    5 that's a dolly for mid-on! Shortish from Archer, the batsman was mainly in two minds - whether to pull or clear mid-on - and he ended up chipping it straight to Plunkett at mid-on 25/2
    23.3 a bullet from Plunkett in the deep, and this could be a run-out! Yep, he's gone! A sprawling dive can't save him as Moeen gathers well at the non-striker's end. Turning for the second, after a clip to backward square, and paying the price! 88/5
    16.2 slapped straight to long-on! Shades of the World T20 Final in Kolkata! Taking on the ego of the batsman, beating him with late dip on a good length, and Afghanistan lose another wicket! Silly shot, but Root has that effect on batsmen... they do like to beat him into the next county 66/4
    23.5 a flat-footed flap down the ground, Stokes steadies himself at long-on, and the wheels are coming off for Afghanistan now! 88/6
    24.3 short and wide, that's a loose delivery and expertly put away with a delicate late dab, but hang on, there's another run-out chance here. Oh dear me, that is terrible running... brilliant fielding mind you... but Bairstow made the effort to intercept the four, and the rest was a bonus as the shy came in fast and true. 92/7
    38.4 slashed down the third man, and Bairstow grabs with a juggle! That's the end of the fun, Jonny didn't have to move as he reached up to grab, but as he started to topple back towards the rope, he had the presence of mind to lob the ball back into play, steady himself, and complete a well-judged catch 160/10
    24.4 an ambitious back-foot drive, a fat edge, and Stokes snaffles another sharp chance! So good from England, just turning the screw in the field - lovely balance at slip as Stokes went at the ball with both hands to his right - and Afghanistan might want to pack this game up and start again 92/8
    32.3 chipped up in the air, straight to point. Loose from Aftab, he hung around for a while, but that was too hard-handed in the circumstances, slashing outside off, taking a top edge and leaving Rashid with catching practice 127/9
