Cremer to Dawlat Zadran, FOUR runs, now he flights it and Dawlat goes after it, opening his shoulders as he swings through the line, and hits it straight down the ground, one bounce for four
Chisoro to Mohammad Shahzad, FOUR runs, short, not too much width, and Shahzad does brilliantly, skips back while simultaneously making himself room, and opens his bat face to find the gap to the left of short third man. Superb placement
Madziva to Mohammad Shahzad, SIX runs, length ball outside off and that is a stunning hit from Shahzad, just clears his front leg and swings across it to hit the wide long-on boundary on the full. Or has it hit it on the half-volley? Maybe the base of the boundary cushion. Six is the umpire's signal in the end
Madziva to Mohammad Shahzad, FOUR runs, short, wide, stands on his toes and cracks it away, rolls his wrists on top of the bounce and cuts fiercely to the left of backward point. Super shot
Chisoro to Mohammad Shahzad, FOUR runs, full down the leg side and Shahzad executes his sweep better than Stanikzai did, playing it fine, to the right of the short fine leg fielder, and picking up a boundary
Madziva to Mohammad Shahzad, FOUR runs, full outside off and what a shot that is! All wrists and bottom hand, and he absolutely hammers that whip wide of mid-on
Chisoro to Asghar Afghan, FOUR runs, short, wide, and this time Stanikzai puts it away into the gap, skips back nimbly and cuts it past point
