Varun: "Afghanistan will almost certainly open with Hamza. Zim should attack him right away and I'd say send Chisoro, their only leftie, to open the innings and licensed to hit. Hope the underdogs win this time :)"

Vishal Sheokand: "That's illogical. If you trust someone's slogging, why would you sneak a bye with 5 balls still remaining? And if you want a single so badly, why not to ask batsman just put bat to ball?"

9.45pm Sixty-six runs coming off the last five overs, with Nabi, Rashid, and particularly Gulbadin Naib going on a six-hitting spree. Afghanistan have powered their way to 187. Should be a steep chase for Zimbabwe. Will they get any help from dew? We will have to see. Twelve sixes in all in the Afghanistan innings.

Tiripano to Rashid Khan, 2 runs, full and wide and Rashid carves it over point, slows down as it bounces to the left of the sweeper cover fielder
