Fall of wickets: 1-13 (Rahmanullah Gurbaz, 1.6 ov), 2-27 (Rahmat Shah, 4.3 ov), 3-31 (Hashmatullah Shahidi, 4.6 ov), 4-48 (Ibrahim Zadran, 8.4 ov), 5-72 (Najibullah Zadran, 12.4 ov), 6-77 (Mohammad Nabi, 14.1 ov), 7-80 (Rashid Khan, 15.4 ov), 8-92 (Mujeeb Ur Rahman, 17.2 ov), 9-103 (Gulbadin Naib, 20.4 ov), 10-116 (Fazalhaq Farooqi, 22.2 ov) • DRS
4.3 to Rahmat Shah, Shah nicks it through! This was short and wide, not a great delivery by any means, but Shah is very loose on this cut and gets a feather through to the keeper.. 27/2
4.6 to Hashmatullah Shahidi, Strangles him down leg! Another soft scalp, but Sri Lanka won't complain. This was short of a length going down leg, but all Shahidi manages to do his feather this down leg where Mendis takes an excellent catch diving to his right. 31/3
12.4 to Najibullah Zadran, And fourth times the charm! This one was short of a length on the stumps, 141kph, pitching and straightening on Najibullah, who gets a leading edge that loops to Hasaranga at backward point for a simple take. Afghanistan are in a major trouble here.. 72/5
14.1 to Mohammad Nabi, Huge appeal for lbw and given! Nabi reviews instantly. This one was a good length on off, nipping in. It goes past the inside edge and strikes the front pad on middle and leg. The question is both of height, and whether this is clipping leg. And yes, it's the most marginal off calls, as this is shown to be barely clipping the top of leg stump. Worthwhile review, but Nabi has to go! Afghanistan folding fast here, can they string together any kind of stand?. 77/6
1.6 to Rahmanullah Gurbaz, And Gurbaz's poor run of form continues! Another one dug in short, and this time Gurbaz can't resist but going for the hook. He only manages to top edge it though and it's taken well by Dimuth Karunaratne at fine leg.. 13/1
8.4 to Ibrahim Zadran, And Kumara gets the big one! This was on a good length outside off, but nips in sharply. Ibrahim's foot movement lets him down here, as he leaves a big gap between bat and pad on the drive. The movement off the surface catches the inside edge and it crashes on to the stumps. Afghanistan in quite a bit of a trouble here.. 48/4
20.4 to Gulbadin Naib, holes out to long on! Theekshana has his first! Given a bit of air on a length outside off stump and it entices Naib into the slog. Gets down on one knee and mows at it but miscues it completely. The ball goes miles up into the air and when it comes down, Dhananjaya de Silva pouches it!. 103/9
15.4 to Rashid Khan, And now he gets his man! This was another leg break on the stumps, and Rashid goes for the sweep but misses completely. This crashes into his back thigh and it's going nowhere else but onto the stumps.. 80/7
17.2 to Mujeeb Ur Rahman, edged and taken! Afghanistan are eight down! Slowed up a touch on a length just outside off stump. Mujeeb is beaten in the flight and his feet do not move much either. He has a loose waft at it and feathers it through to Mendis, who snaffles up a smart chance! Mujeeb reviews, more in hope, though. UltraEdge comes up and shows that there is a small spike when the ball is close to the bat! Hasaranga has another!. 92/8
22.2 to Fazalhaq Farooqi, huge appeal, and given! But Farooqi wants to have another look at it! Googly fizzed through on a length on middle and off stump. Farooqi does not pick it and is caught on the crease. The bat gets nowhere close to the ball and he gets pinned on the back pad - right in front of the stumps. UltraEdge confirms that there is no bat involved, and Ball Tracking returns with three reds! That will be that for Afghanistan in this innings!. 116/10

10.1 to P Nissanka, Naib gets Nissanka! Full and slanted into middle and leg stump. Nissanka falls over just a touch and then plays all around it. The ball strikes him on the pads and the umpire has no hesitation in raising his finger. Nissanka, though, thinks this is going down leg and has reviewed! No bat involved and Ball Tracking shows that the ball would have thundered into leg stump. Nissanka has to go!. 84/1
