Fall of wickets: 1-3 (Fakhar Zaman, 0.4 ov), 2-7 (Babar Azam, 1.6 ov), 3-40 (Mohammad Rizwan, 7.5 ov), 4-62 (Agha Salman, 16.3 ov), 5-112 (Iftikhar Ahmed, 27.6 ov), 6-152 (Imam-ul-Haq, 35.6 ov), 7-160 (Usama Mir, 37.1 ov), 8-163 (Shaheen Shah Afridi, 38.4 ov), 9-198 (Shadab Khan, 46.4 ov), 10-201 (Haris Rauf, 47.1 ov) • DRS
0.4 to Fakhar Zaman, Taken at slip! Farooqi strikes in his first over. Full ball pitched wide of off, an outswinger, Fakhar fell for the trap, with no foot movement, and looks to drive this towards offside, but edges it to second slip who loses a bit of balance trying to catch it as the ball pops out to first slip. 3/1
1.6 to Babar Azam, Huge appeal for LBW and Babar has to depart! Looks like he was beaten comprehensively. It was a full delivery on the off stump, Babar looks to defend and gets hit on the front pad as he played the wrong line. Three reds light up! Pakistan captain is out for duck. Huge, huge wicket for Afghanistan very early in the innings. 7/2
7.5 to Mohammad Rizwan, Mujeeb strikes again! A full length delivery on off from Mujeeb, turning away from the batter he looks to defend it to legside. Umpire's finger goes up as the ball hits Rizwan's back thigh. He reviews this immediately. UltraEdge confirms there is not bat involved. And it is hitting the top of offstump. Rizwan departs for 21. 40/3
37.1 to Usama Mir, Knocked him over! Pakistan lose their seventh wicket. What a beauty that is from Mujeeb! Mir had no clue about this ball. Full ball around off and middle, spun away as the batter looks to defend towards leg side and misses, it goes past the outside edge and takes the offstump. 160/7
27.6 to Iftikhar Ahmed, Chipped to short midwicket and Nabi breaks a promising stand. Tosses it up, bowls it slower through the air and lands it around the good length region around off and middle, getting it to spin in. But the balls holds a touch on the surface and Iftikhar is early in his attempted flick, chipping it to Shahidi off the full face. 112/5
35.6 to Imam-ul-Haq, Excellent running catch by Rashid! Nabi takes the big wicket of Imam. Full ball on middle stump, the batter shimmies down the track to hit this over mid-on but Rashid is quick to run backwards and completes this catch. 152/6
16.3 to Agha Salman, Salman misjudges the googly and is sent walking! The Rashid magic on show on his third ball. Bowls it quicker and lands it on a length outside off, spins in viciously. Salman gets his front pad out but seeing it pitch wide outside off, thinks of leaving it. But the ball comes in and strikes him on the front pad and he is a dead duck. Does not even think about the review and walks off. Rashid is away. 62/4
38.4 to Shaheen Shah Afridi, Absolute ripper! Quicker through the air, Rashid bowls it full and on offstump, Shaheen looks to go back and flick, misses the ball as it takes his top of offstump comfortably. Pakistan eight down. 163/8
47.1 to Haris Rauf, Pakistan all out for 201. Full ball on the stumps, Rauf goes for a flick on the backfoot and misses. Rahmat appeals for lbw straightaway. Umpires takes a few seconds but raises his finger. Pakistan want to review this, UltraEdge confirms no bat involved. Pitching in line, impact in line, wicket will be umpire's call on offstump, and yes, that will be the end of the innings. 201/10

Fall of wickets: 1-3 (Ibrahim Zadran, 2.4 ov), 2-3 (Rahmat Shah, 2.5 ov), 3-4 (Hashmatullah Shahidi, 3.3 ov), 4-18 (Ikram Alikhil, 7.1 ov), 5-35 (Rahmanullah Gurbaz, 13.3 ov), 6-48 (Mohammad Nabi, 15.3 ov), 7-48 (Rashid Khan, 15.5 ov), 7-54* (Azmatullah Omarzai, retired not out), 8-55 (Abdul Rahman, 18.5 ov), 9-59 (Mujeeb Ur Rahman, 19.2 ov) • DRS
2.4 to Ibrahim Zadran, Ibrahim is bounced out. Afridi bangs it one in, Ibrahim goes for the pull but it gets big on him. Only manages a top edge to the on side. Salman manages to hang on after getting there from midwicket but square leg was in his peripheral vision. The traditional Afridi celebration follows. 3/1
2.5 to Rahmat Shah, Two in two and that's the tamest of dismissals. Pakistan celebrate big time for the bonus. A juicy full toss on middle and leg, Rahmat fails to control his flick and hits it into Salman's lap at short midwicket. Nonchalantly taken with minimum fuss, Afghanistan dented early. 3/2
3.3 to Hashmatullah Shahidi, Stunnningggg Shadabbb! Or flyinggg Shadab! Absolutely terrific effort from the fielder at forward square leg. And Afghanistan have lost their captain now. Naseem bangs it short, Shahidi takes on the pull. But he is not in control due to the high pace and lift. Almost manages to clear square leg, where Shadab first leaps to his left, lobs the ball up with his right hand and grabs it as he lands. 4/3
7.1 to Ikram Alikhil, Through Alikhil! Oh, he has edged it. Clearly he was beaten for pace and as a result, felt as if he has missed it. Rauf runs in and bowls it on a length and gets it to nip back in ever so slightly. Alikhil hops and looks to defend but gets a tickle. Rizwan once again dives full length to his right and pouches it. A perfect start for Rauf. 18/4
13.3 to Rahmanullah Gurbaz, Huge appeal and the finger goes up! Beautiful delivery from Rauf. Just a hint of outswing. Length ball just outside off, Gurbaz is forced to play the shot, gets an outside edge to keeper. Gurbaz has a chat with Nabi and decides against reviewing it. 35/5
15.3 to Mohammad Nabi, Soft dismissal! Rauf is on fire, isn't he. Bowls a short ball outside off, Nabi lofts it towards short cover without much power and is caught by Agha Salman easily. Third wicket in fifth over for Rauf. 48/6
15.5 to Rashid Khan, Ripper! Rashid has no clue to this excellent delivery. Length ball pitched around off stump, straightens up after pitching and hits his offstump before Rashid could get to the ball. Beaten by Rauf's pace. 48/7
19.2 to Mujeeb Ur Rahman, Five wickets for Rauf! What a bowling display this has been from the bowler. Length ball around off, Mujeeb goes big again, but doesn't time it well and ends up giving an easy catch to Naseem to mid-on. Rauf bows to the ground and prays to God after taking the five-for.. 59/9
18.5 to Abdul Rahman, There goes the eighth wicket! Bowls it full on middle and off, Rahman wants to go big across the line, but doesn't get the elevation. Fakhar runs in from midwicket and takes the catch. Shadab is elated. 55/8
