Fall of wickets: 1-82 (Pathum Nissanka, 15.5 ov), 2-110 (Dimuth Karunaratne, 22.3 ov), 3-198 (Sadeera Samarawickrama, 36.5 ov), 4-213 (Charith Asalanka, 39.5 ov), 5-254 (Kusal Mendis, 43.4 ov), 6-288 (Dasun Shanaka, 47.1 ov) • DRS
36.5 to S Samarawickrama, knocks him over! Slightly quicker and flatter on a length at the stumps. Samarawickrama hangs back and tries to smash it into next week. He is a touch late on the stroke, though, and gets a bottom edge that pings off his back thigh and into off stump! Massive wicket for Afghanistan!. 198/3
43.4 to BKG Mendis, edged and taken superbly by Gurbaz! Back of a length delivery slanted across the batter outside off stump. Mendis flashes his blade at it and gets a thick outside edge that flies towards the keeper. Gurbaz flings out his right mitt and plucks it out of thin air! Huge wicket in the context of this game but take nothing away from the knock - it has set Sri Lanka up for a score, most probably, in excess of 300!. 254/5
47.1 to MD Shanaka, Shanaka bites the dust! Back of a length delivery on middle and leg stump. Shanaka tries to manufacture room and tries to glide it past the keeper. He is cramped for room, though, and in the end, he only offers some simple catching practice to Gurbaz behind the stumps!. 288/6
15.5 to P Nissanka, big appeal, not given! Flat and full on middle and off stump. Nissanka is caught on the crease and has a hurried prod at it. He seems to get some bat on it but has the ball hit the pad first? Afghanistan think that is the case and they review! The ball is very close to the bat but the umpire needs UltraEdge to confirm. Okay, looks like the bat has hit the back pad, but not before the ball has hit the back pad. Three reds on Ball Tracking, and Nissanka has to go!. 82/1
39.5 to KIC Asalanka, huge appeal and that looks very adjacent! Quicker and more round-arm on a length on middle and off stump. Asalanka, like Karunaratne and Nissanka, is caught on the crease and is late in bringing his bat down. The ball skids and pings him on the back pad, right in front of the stumps. The umpire raises his finger and Asalanka does not even bother with the review! Afghanistan are chipping away at the wickets!. 213/4
22.3 to FDM Karunaratne, And now Dimuth must go! This one is flatter and keeps a bit low off a good length, Dimuth goes back in his crease and looks to work this off middle and leg, but the ball fizzes through and traps him plumb in front. Umpire Hannibal thinks about it and eventually raises the finger. Dimuth wisely opts against the review, that was dead on.. 110/2

TOTAL42.1 Ov (RR: 4.52)191
Fall of wickets: 1-11 (Rahmanullah Gurbaz, 3.2 ov), 2-62 (Rahmat Shah, 15.4 ov), 3-146 (Ibrahim Zadran, 30.3 ov), 4-157 (Najibullah Zadran, 32.5 ov), 5-160 (Mohammad Nabi, 33.5 ov), 6-160 (Hashmatullah Shahidi, 34.1 ov), 7-169 (Noor Ahmad, 37.1 ov), 8-169 (Mujeeb Ur Rahman, 37.3 ov), 9-191 (Fareed Ahmad, 41.2 ov), 10-191 (Azmatullah Omarzai, 42.1 ov) • DRS
3.2 to Rahmanullah Gurbaz, Chameera strikes! This is on a good length just outside off, goading Gurbaz to play at it. The batter comes forward and looks to defend, but there's just enough movement to feather an edge through to an elated Mendis behind the stumps. 11/1
33.5 to Mohammad Nabi, edged and taken! Chameera has another! Similar length delivery in the corridor that pitches and seems to nip away ever so slightly. Nabi, without any foot movement and with an open bat face, has a poke at it and gets a healthy nick that Mendis gobbles up behind the stumps!. 160/5
42.1 to Azmatullah Omarzai, Sri Lanka win by 132 runs! Full delivery outside off stump that pitches and moves away. Omarzai is trying to smash this into the ocean but loses his shape completely. He slices it off the outer half of the bat and long off settles under it, completing the catch with the minimal of fuss!. 191/10
15.4 to Rahmat Shah, Shanaka traps Rahmat lbw! Full and angled into the stumps. Rahmat does not get a good stride forward and then plays all over a straight delivery. It pins him on the back leg and the umpire has no hesitation in raising his finger. Rahmat consults with his partner and then reviews. If there is no bat involved, this could be curtains. No bat and Ball Tracking says that the ball would have just clipped the outside of leg stump! Umpire's Call and Rahmat has to go!. 62/2
37.1 to Noor Ahmad, cleans him up with a wrong'un! Googly on a length on middle and off stump. Noor sits back in his crease and tries to pull it away. The problem, though, is that he has not picked the googly. The ball sneaks past his flailing blade, kisses the back thigh and then crashes into leg stump!. 169/7
37.3 to Mujeeb Ur Rahman, huge appeal and this time, the umpire raises his finger! A very similar delivery to the previous one, although this might have been a little fuller. Mujeeb is again trapped on the crease and plays all over it as the ball thuds into the pads. Mujeeb reviews but this looked very close on first glance. No bat involved and Ball Tracking shows that the ball would have just grazed the outside of leg stump! Umpire's Call and Mujeeb has to go!. 169/8
41.2 to Fareed Ahmad, knocks him over with a ripper! Flighted beautifully on a length just outside off stump. The ball dips devilishly too and Fareed, trying to fence at it, gets nowhere close to the pitch of the ball. Leaves a gap between bat and pad and the ball goes through it comfortably before smashing into the stumps!. 191/9
30.3 to Ibrahim Zadran, Edged and Ibrahim must go! DDS persists with around the wicket to Ibrahim and it pays off. This was a length ball fired across the right hander. Ibrahim looks for the cut but gets a thick edge, which Mendis does exceedingly well to hold on to. That is a big strike for Sri Lanka.. 146/3
32.5 to Najibullah Zadran, Holes out in the deep! The scoreboard pressure begins to tell. Najibullah looks to up the scoring rate and charges DDS. He gets hold of this lofted off drive but doesn't quite get enough to clear the man on the long-off boundary. 157/4
34.1 to Hashmatullah Shahidi, huge appeal, and the umpire raises his finger! The wheels are coming off for Afghanistan now! Length delivery on off stump that continues with the angle and goes straight on. Shahidi plays down the wrong line as the ball sneaks past the inside edge and pins him on the back leg. Shahidi reviews but it could be more in hope that expectation. No bat involved and Bal Tracking reckons the ball would have crashed into middle and leg stump! Afghanistan are six down now!. 160/6
