TOTAL20 Ov (RR: 7.70, 103 Mins)154/7
Fall of wickets: 1-16 (Hazratullah Zazai, 2.2 ov), 2-26 (Rahmanullah Gurbaz, 3.5 ov), 3-32 (Ibrahim Zadran, 4.4 ov), 4-52 (Karim Janat, 7.4 ov), 5-87 (Najibullah Zadran, 13.5 ov), 6-143 (Azmatullah Omarzai, 18.6 ov), 7-152 (Rashid Khan, 19.5 ov) • DRS
2.2 to Hazratullah Zazai, Zazai mistimes the sweep and skews it to square leg. Tried to go big again, got on one knee but couldn't heave it away from around off. Nasum bowled it from slightly behind the crease and Zazai tried to clobber it too hard, which may have sacrificed the timing.. 16/1
3.5 to Rahmanullah Gurbaz, The slower one gets Gurbaz. He tried to help it away but Taskin rolling his fingers on it meant that the length ball, angling into the pads, needed extra pace to be generated off the bat to travel far. Gurbaz was able to pull one away behind square on the last ball of the first over, but the lack of pace meant he had to crouch and that he couldn't find much elevation. Low catch taken by Mehidy. Taskin's pumped. 26/2
4.4 to Ibrahim Zadran, Catching practice for Litton, Shoriful gets Ibrahim for the fourth time in the tour! Back of length outside off, Ibrahim tried to run it through in the gap, brought about by short third being brought up. But the ball was just outside off and got a bit of extra bounce which meant it popped off the edge.. 32/3
7.4 to Karim Janat, Skied hugh, Shanto settles at mid-off and takes it while on his knees. Afghanistan's keep-going approach not paying off yet. Janat charged down and swiped across the line, got it off the leading edge and stayed up for a while. Didn't get to the pitch and had to drag it across a little bit. Shanto ran in from long-off and took it well. 52/4
18.6 to Azmatullah Omarzai, Taskin runs back from short third and takes a snorter! Great cameo by Omarzai. Made room again and tried to go over midwicket. The top edge was found off the slog sweep, went miles in the air. Taskin was running after turning 180-degrees clockwise, kept his eyes on the ball and managed to hold the ball after his wrist hit the ground.. 143/6
19.5 to Rashid Khan, Another brilliant catch, this time from Shanto, running in from long-on! Slower ball around off, Rashid cleared his front leg and tried to mow it over wide long-on. Sliced it high, Shanto sprinted from the deep and took an athletic slide-on catch.. 152/7
13.5 to Najibullah Zadran, Sharp work by Litton. That was so well done it's hard to decipher what's happened off the first view. Slow-motion replay shows Najib shaped for the paddle, then noticed the ball was on a length outside off, and tried to dab it to deep third. He chopped it onto the flap of the pad from the underedge while crouching, the ball flew to his left. Litton took a couple of steps in front and dove across full-length to his diagonal left. Somewhat of a freak dismissal. Crowd are ecstatic.. 87/5

Did not bat:
Fall of wickets: 1-5 (Rony Talukdar, 0.6 ov), 2-30 (Najmul Hossain Shanto, 5.1 ov), 3-39 (Litton Das, 6.3 ov), 4-64 (Shakib Al Hasan, 10.1 ov), 5-137 (Shamim Hossain, 17.2 ov), 6-153 (Mehidy Hasan Miraz, 19.2 ov), 7-153 (Taskin Ahmed, 19.3 ov), 8-153 (Nasum Ahmed, 19.4 ov) • DRS
0.6 to Rony Talukdar, Flatten them stumps and take flight, it's what Farooqi has done time and time again and does now. 139kph balll was around a back of length, Talukdar was on the front foot trying to defend it with the straight bat. HD Ackerman notices Talukdar's left (front) foot was stuck and he tried to cover the angle, which he was uncertain of, by pushing at the ball with his hands. But he ended up playing the wrong line and lost his stump.. 5/1
5.1 to Najmul Hossain Shanto, Freak dismissal and Mujeeb is over the moon with that celebratory jump! Shanto made so much room that he was lunging on the leg-side tramline as he tried to slog sweep the ball following him. The ball looks to have beaten bat and gone off the forehand/elbow into the pitch and then off stump. Stump cam shows it came off the elbow.. 30/2
6.3 to Litton Das, Sliced off the top edge, mid-off runs in to take a dolly. Omarzai has a Fruit Ninja style stab of the air in celebration. Litton was charging and got a short ball coming into his body, he tried to swipe it away but was done in by the lack of room. Not sure if he wanted to pull it square or over midwicket/mid-on. 39/3
17.2 to Shamim Hossain, Slog sweep costs Shamim and Afghanistan have a late opening! Length outside off, the legbreak spins in a bit but Shamim still had to drag it from outside off. He got a top edge that went right up. Gurbaz walked to the right of the pitch and took the skier. Subdued celebrations of course. Replay from the dug out shows Chandika Hathurasinghe whack his cap in frustration.. 137/5
10.1 to Shakib Al Hasan, Afghanistan ain't gonna be complaining about the drinks break as Shakib slaps the ball right after to deep point. His lips purse and face shrinks in frustration. That was a loose short-and-wide one designed to be belted. Shakib did slash but could hit it 5-10 metres to the right of Janat.. 64/4
19.2 to Mehidy Hasan Miraz, Pulled straight to midwicket! A 134kph back of lengther into the body, Miraz tried to finish it by pulling it powerfully, didn't connect and Nabi's subdued celebrations indicate it might be all too late.. 153/6
19.3 to Taskin Ahmed, Taskin somehow nicks off to a short and wide ball. Might have been the shortest ball that landed today, didn't rise much and was close to, if not past the off-side tramline. Taskin reached out and tried to slash it away. Toe edged it to the keeper.. 153/7
19.4 to Nasum Ahmed, Janat has a hat-trick as Shoriful top edges a pull to deep third! Smiles all around in the Afghanistan huddle. Short ball over middle and off, Nasum cleared his front leg and tried to pull it into orbit. Went high off the edge and Fareed took a simple catch. Surely it's too late for the twist but it's 2 needed off 2!. 153/8
