    14.2 Rath keeps the dancing shoes on and was looking out to hit this flat length ball over the bowler's head. This was the leggie, which was pitched outside the leg stump and goes past the swinging bat of Rath. Keeper does the rest.. 104/6
    6.3 going on with the arm and strikes the pad in line, loud appeal and given. 56/1
    10 hit hard in the air to deep midwicket and Shenwari takes a good catch. 79/2
    11.1 tossed up delivery outside off. Chapman pre-meditates his shot as he skips down the track and tries to loft that over the off side. He doesn't gets to the pitch of the ball as he skies to the right of the fielder down at long-off. Naib ran across to hold that. 87/3
    12.3 and finally he gets the wicket, nothing changes from Zadran though Nizakat looks unhappy as he walks back. This was touch shortish just around the off stump and zips across making the batsman play. He was caught in that cordon where must play that line and possibly gets an outside edge to the keeper but Nizakat doesn't feel the same way. He was backing away there touch and tries to run that to third man with an open face.. 95/4
    13.5 this time he holes out..Nabi gets his fourth..He drags this short as Afzal skips down the track in search of a mighty hoick over the leg side. He was nowhere near to the line and just ends up slicing it down towards the long-on where Naib hardly moved from his place to pouch that dolly.. 102/5
    15.4 alters the length outside off as he pushes this touch uppish, Aizaz stays on the crease and slices that over the extra cover region. Stanikzai ran across to his left and holds a good running catch.. 108/7
    run out (Shapoor Zadran/Rashid Khan)
    16.5 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.. 112/9
    17.1 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. 112/10
