TOTAL20 Ov (RR: 8.40, 93 Mins)168/7
Fall of wickets: 1-34 (Rahmanullah Gurbaz, 4.5 ov), 2-76 (Hashmatullah Shahidi, 9.4 ov), 3-113 (Najibullah Zadran, 13.6 ov), 4-115 (Usman Ghani, 14.3 ov), 5-122 (Mohammad Nabi, 15.5 ov), 6-134 (Azmatullah Omarzai, 16.6 ov), 7-147 (Rashid Khan, 18.6 ov)
16.6 to Azmatullah Omarzai, Cut straight to deep third! It was around back of a length outside off, it seemed to jump up and took the top-edge of the hard-swung cut, and it carried easily.. 134/6
4.5 to Rahmanullah Gurbaz, Spooned in the air and that's the end of Gurbaz! McCarthy comes back well. Back of a length outside off, he gives himself room looking to loft it over the offside. Does not get it anywhere close to the middle of the bat and can only mistime it to Tector at mid-off.. 34/1
14.3 to Usman Ghani, Full, whacked but it's a skier. Taken by Tector at deep midwicket! Ghani tried to get under the ball, did so but could not connect as sweetly as he would have wanted. McCarthy gets his second.. 115/4
18.6 to Rashid Khan, Wide, slashed, taken at wide long-off! This was full, very wide, Rashid reached out and lofted it with a whippy cover drive, but could not get past Dockrell running to his left. 147/7
13.6 to Najibullah Zadran, Top edge off the swipe and he holes to short third! This was fullish around sixth stump, he reached out and tried to clobber it over cover but it ballooned up off the edge, easily taken by McBrine. 113/3
9.4 to Hashmatullah Shahidi, Three dots and the pressure gets to Shahidi. Tossed up around middle and leg, he goes for the sweep, can only get a top edge and short fine leg runs back to complete a good catch.. 76/2
15.5 to Mohammad Nabi, Pulled, straight to deep midwicket! Nabi made room, the length ball angled in towards him. It sat up well for the pull, he god decent elevation but could not clear Tector. Dockrell's gotten a couple of bonuses.. 122/5

Fall of wickets: 1-61 (Paul Stirling, 7.3 ov), 2-123 (Andy Balbirnie, 14.5 ov), 3-146 (Lorcan Tucker, 17.6 ov)
14.5 to A Balbirnie, Sweeps in the air, and Zadran takes it at deep midwicket! The ball was full and coming at him, he went through with the shot and his upper body overbalanced him to the left. Najib did well to take it while on the move.. 123/2
17.6 to LJ Tucker, Slog swept, it's a skier and taken by Rashid at deep midwicket! It was a length ball, the slower one was in Tucker's reach. He swung through, Rashid ran to his left as the ball eased down and took it well.. 146/3
7.3 to PR Stirling, Forces it to deep cover and that is a top catch! Slightly short outside off, he gives himself room and slams it deep. Does not get all of it but the ball still seems to be going over the fielder. But Farooqi steadies himself very well and completes an excellent take.. 61/1
