Dawlat Zadran to Tanveer Ahmed, OUT, and Dawlat keeps the Afghanistan hopes alive. This was bowled from wide of the crease and back of a length coming in with the angle. Hits the pad of Tanveer quite low as he plays all across the line and umpire raises his finger.

Rashid Khan to Nadeem Ahmed, OUT, another wrong'un from Rashid. This one kept touch low and turns back in sharply from outside off. He stays on the crease and tries to cut that, not enough room for that and that ball clips the back pad. Straight-forward decision..
