5.4 oh dear he's got a raw decision. Clipped the thigh pad on the way through but is given out caught behind. 12/1
    23.4 a quicker ball, and he is caught on crease. Might have been a little high but it looked pretty out from here. Brings to an end an attractive innings. 80/2
    47.4 oh that is the end of a fine innings. Kept a little low but the golden arm has done the trick, and Mommsen is removed. 169/4
    33.2 and Coleman is furious with himself. A rank full toss which he has swept straight to midwicket, who is halfway back. That will be tea as well, in a session that Scotland were about to edge, but that wicket perhaps shifts the balance. 102/3
    49.2 Shinwari strikes again! MacLeod pressed forward and nicked it to slip, who took a good low catch. He kicks the dust as he leaves because he was well set. 180/5
    57 and Ashraf's consistency is rewarded with a wicket. Trapped in front, not much argument with that. 206/6
    72.2 and that's that. Very full leg break, which Cross went to drive, but succeeded only in edging the ball to slip. 233/10
    64.3 that isn't the cleverest shot with 16 balls left in the day. Runs down the wicket and miscues a shot aimed over mid on, into the hands of mid off. I don't think he's going to be well received in the dressing room. 224/7
    65.5 and that is plumb. Trapped on the front foot. 225/8
    71 bowled 'im! Leaves it outside off stump and that's the first of the two wickets Afghanistan need to end this innings. Not sure it went the other way, but perhaps just didn't turn away from the line and Evans is left standing there. 232/9

    0.2 strikes almost at once! Played a straight drive and just missed it. Looked very adjacent, and umpire Brathwaite obliged. 2/1
    4.5 another one goes! An absolute beauty from Evans, flying between bat and pad and sending off stump cartwheeling. This is exactly the start Scotland would have wanted, and they have the Afghans running scared here. 9/3
    3.4 gets his man! Threw the bat at one outside off stump and drags it onto his leg stump which goes flying, leaving the off and middle one undisturbed. A fine sight and Sharif now has a wicket to match Evans'. 9/2
    12.3 and that is the big wicket! First ball after his injury, although suffering no real after-effects, and he unfurls a huge off drive into Con de Lange's hands at wide mid off. 40/4
    27.1 with his first ball in international cricket! Straight forward delivery, turned a bit, hit him on the front foot straight in front. A good breakthrough for Scotland. 73/5
    not out
    28.4 another goes! Sends off stump cartwheeling, and Nabi spends along time practicing the off drive he just missed. Scotland are right into among them now. 78/6
    39.1 and that's the breakthrough Scotland needed. Gets one to turn and Ashraf hung back and was beaten by it. Into the tail now. 94/7
    39.2 first ball! Catches the inside edge and Evans takes a beauty at leg slip. De Lange on hat-trick! 94/8
    61.2 and that's a breakthrough! Drives a length ball straight to Coleman at short extra cover who takes a sharp catch above his head. 135/9
    61.4 huge appeal and it's given! Hint of bat involved, but Scotland claim the six point bonus and by the looks of things that will be the end of proceedings. 135/10
