4.40 pm This is Afghanistan's best total in a World T20. Mohammad Nabi and Samiullah Shenwari, who had to rebuild after a rip-roaring start from Mohammad Shahzad, have recorded their second-highest partnership. Before they had come together Zimbabwe had taken four wickets in 20 balls. But their 98 off 64 have ratcheted Afghanistan up to 186, and it seems a rock-solid total on a pitch that is holding up on the batsmen and turning too.

Chetan Parate: "Looking to the extras 25 runs! If that lapsed then target for zimbabwe would be 162. That is the big difference today for both the team. AFG will quite happy with that :)"

Chatara to Dawlat Zadran, 1 bye, how about that for a finish! Chatara bowls a fuller one outside off, Dawlat swings and misses, the non-striker races off for a bye. But Dawlat holds his ground. Poor Mutumbami fires a direct hit for no avail - both batsmen were at the same end, safely in their crease. And then when the ball is deflected away, Dawlat trots off to complete the single.

Chatara to Dawlat Zadran, 1 wide, attempts to toe that wide line, but it seems he hasn't done so. Dawlat ran down the track and shouldered arms

Chatara to Shafiqullah, OUT, that time Mutumbami hits the stumps direct and sends Nabi back. Good work from Afghanistan to go for the bye though after Shafiq attempts a scoop and misses. Every run counts here

Chatara to Shafiqullah, 2 runs, low full toss outside off meets a big slog and out pops the outside edge. Hami M races after it from cover, reaches a hand out but it beats him comfortably

Chatara to Shafiqullah, 1 wide, with the batsman moving across outside off, Chatara is spooked into bowling wider outside off. Shafiq is sly enough to leave it and secure an extra
