    24.4 given lbw! Hope doesn't pick the googly. It's short of a length and ripping in from outside off stump. He's swishing at this, trying to flick a ball that goes straight on. It's a long way away from the inside edge and traps him in front of middle and off 98/1
    25.6 smashes leg stump. A full fast delivery. Flicking length, but Lewis has looked to sweep. And has got into a tangle, swatting at that hurriedly. Bowled around his legs and the bowling change works 106/2
    37.6 and there's the rash shot! He's committed hara-kiri by muscling this across the line to long-on. May have been better of playing the pull through midwicket. Looked to clear long-on but hit it straight down the throat of the fielder. 156/4
    34.3 through him! Short of a length and sliding in to Chase. He's standing tall and looking to pull, but this hits him just under the back of his knee and takes the stumps 137/3
    49.2 no pace to work with, he backs away and clobbers this straight to long-off 242/8
    39.3 he's chipped this back to the bowler. West Indies wobbling properly. This is a soft dismissal, does Pollard in flight, didn't spin much and he hit it back. 160/5
    43.1 slower length ball angling in, tucked to the man coming in from deep square. Hard to understand why Holder would want to go for a suicidal second. Rocket throw from the deep, good grab by the keeper. 182/6
    47.5 full toss, right in the slot and guess what? He's heaved this straight to long-on. Oh, dear 232/7

    14.4 this time he finds long-on! This is good bowling from Chase. Same line, same length, but it's a much slower ball this time. Dips on him a touch, grips in the pitch a touch, and does just enough to get the bat to turn in his hands as he looks for another slog over that fielder. Taken on the line 61/3
    0.5 Cottrell gets under it and rouses the crowd with a salute. Short ball climbing across off stump. He's rooted to the crease as he tries to play the pull. Ends up slicing it and Cottrell doesn't even have to leave the pitch area 1/1
    13.6 run-out chance has been sent upstairs. Rahmat could be out at the non-striker's end. A length ball at off, he defends to extra cover's right. Pollard swoops down on it and Rahmat has just taken off and had to turn back after making it halfway. Joseph runs back and picks up the one-bounce throw from Pollard and just manages to clip a bail out...and Rahmat is short! Huge wicket. Never a run there 54/2
    26.6 edged and gone! There's the big wicket. This one turns and bounces, Najib plays for the one that skids on so he's prodding down the wrong line, thin edge and well pouched. Is that the game and the series? 109/5
    18.2 what have you done, Asghar? He's holed out to deep midwicket. Rash shot from a senior pro. Steps out but can't get to the pitch, goes with the stroke and finds the fielder. Afghanistan crumbling 79/4
    38.6 edged behind! Cottrell has sparked life into his team. Short of a length and wide outside off. It's there for the cut and he's gone for it. But the timing has gone marginally wrong and he gets a thick edge to Pooran, He's crestfallen 177/6
    39.1 given lbw! Oh that is a close call. Looks to me like it could have missed off stump. It's a length ball pitching on off stump and turning slightly away. Nabi gets down on his knee, a long way across with almost all stumps visible, and tries to ramp this fine. He's struck in front of off stump and the umpire reckons that is hitting. Two in two and suddenly West Indies are looking like favourites 177/7
    41.5 beats him in flight and turns it past him. Although Rashid doesn't do himself any favours here. Looks premeditated. Short of a length and flat. He steps out and makes room but this ball has pitched outside off. That distance between batsman and ball is only going to increase from there. Easy stumping for Pooran 184/8
    45.4 taken at deep midwicket. That is it. The end. Walsh has a superb finish after being expensive in his opening spell. Length ball outside off, looks for the slog sweep, gets it off the toe-end 200/10
    42.3 taken at third man. This is ending fast for Afghanistan. Length ball wide outside off, probably a cutter going away. He looks to slog it and it's off the leading edge, looping out to the fielder there 185/9
