    7.2 TOP CATCH! Mahmudullah tossed this up outside off, and Tamim took the bait and looked to go straight over long off. Wiese, stationed right at the fence, times his jump to perfection, takes the ball and does well to not over-balance. Had to transfer the weight from the heels to the toes as he came down with the ball. Good bit of inspiration to break a dangerous opening partnership 58/1
    not out
    7.3 swings the first ball across the line and gets it straight down midwicket's throat! 58/2
    14.3 full ball, that strikes him on the foot. They have reviewed this, for a leg before. Full ball from around the wicket that hits him flush on the foot, just behind his toes. There's no inside edge, and the point of interest will probably be where it pitched. It's a great call - OUT! What a great wicket for Khulna to take, and especially for Islam. Good bit of thinking to come around the wicket, and it gives him an immediate reward! 155/3
    15.2 shorter, and he has gone for a repeat, but found Wiese at long off. Good catch by the big man, and good thinking by Brathwaite to have just slowed it up. Does a little jig in celebration 174/4
    16 Brathwaite picks up his SECOND WICKET of the over, and it's a big one! Afridi's stay at the crease is a short one 178/5

    13 length ball, swings it across the line, and it goes up....and Afridi takes it on the way down. The hands are spread in celebration again. Afridi is making a difference here, using his experience to vary the loop and pace on this placid wicket. A masterclass in limited-overs bowling, really! 116/4
    5.3 full, down the leg side, and he looks to drive this down the ground, and holes out to long on! Big breakthrough for Comilla, and comes to the excellent Mahedi Hasan 55/1
    8.4 full ball, and he goes across the line, skies it...and Mahedi Hasan takes it at midwicket! Boom-boom with the breakthrough, and these wickets will hurt the Khulna cause 79/2
    10.4 RATTLES THE TIMBER! A little slower through the air, but similar in line and length...basically attacking the stumps all the time. Mahmudullah looks to go across the line, and there's a death rattle behind him. Afridi pulls out the arms spread in the air celebration of his. Good wicket to have picked at this stage for Comilla, no doubt! 95/3
    15.5 fuller ball, and he looks to go over covers, but it has gone high, and taken! Intelligent bowling to have delivered it wider of off stump, and forced the shot to get skewed wider than he might have been aiming for, and Saifuddin runs around from covers and completes a good take 143/5
    16.2 slower ball, length, and he looks to go down the ground, but plays it towards long. Dawson, a substitute fielder, takes it gleefully. The end is in sight for Comilla, and they will hope to get Khulna bowled out quickly here, to boost their net run rate 144/6
    18.3 length ball, and he swings it around to midwicket, but there's a man right there for that shot. EIGHT DOWN FOR THE TITANS! 157/8
    17.2 length ball, and he moves across to try and run it towards point. Afridi with a direct hit! SUPER STUFF! 147/7
    18.4 TWO IN TWO! Length ball, outside off stump, and Taijul walks across in trying to play it over long leg, and just deflects it on to timber behind him 157/9
    not out
    18.5 HAT-TRICK FOR RIAZ! Slower ball, as he came around the wicket, and Saddam was looking to chip this down the wicket, but got it too close to mid-off. Wahab Riaz finishes this off in style, as Comilla Victorians claim this by 80 runs. That, in T20s, is a hammering! 157/10
