19.6 to Najibullah Zadran, Another full toss, this time he finds the fielder at deep square leg while trying to flick it. That's a superb knock from Najibullah nonetheless. 189/5
11.2 to Rahmanullah Gurbaz, Length ball on middle and leg, he tries to smash it on the legside but gets a top-edge, Adair runs back to catch it at short third. 90/1
17.5 to Ibrahim Zadran, Short ball ploy continues.. Zadran looks to paddle it to fine leg but he ramps it straight into the keeper's hands. 157/3
13.3 to Hazratullah Zazai, Superb catch by Stirling! Slowish delivery outside offstump, Zazai too early in the shot. Ball loops to short third man where Stirling takes a diving catch. That's Fionn Hand's first international wicket. 109/2

Fall of wickets: 1-3 (Paul Stirling, 0.3 ov), 2-19 (Andy Balbirnie, 2.3 ov), 3-22 (Harry Tector, 3.2 ov), 4-36 (Curtis Campher, 5.5 ov), 5-58 (Lorcan Tucker, 8.4 ov), 6-65 (Gareth Delany, 9.5 ov), 7-85 (Mark Adair, 12.2 ov), 8-159 (Fionn Hand, 18.4 ov), 9-162 (Graham Hume, 18.6 ov)
0.3 to PR Stirling, an early breakthrough. A wide full toss, Stirling throws his bat at it but gets little power behind it. Ghani moves to his right from cover and grabs it. 3/1
2.3 to A Balbirnie, an excellent catch by Rashid at backward point. Full and wide, Balbirnie was backing away and had to reach out for it in the end. He gets it on the full but from the toe end of the bat, which means he ends up slicing it towards backward point where Rashid grabs it with both hands. 19/2
3.2 to HT Tector, Naveen-ul-Haq strikes with his second ball. Short of length outside off, well outside off, but Tector chases it and gets an outside edge to the keeper. 22/3
5.5 to C Campher, slower one does the trick. Campher wanted to repeat the shot but the change of pace does him in. It was full around off and while Campher delayed his shot but couldn't get the timing right. Najeeb at mid-on takes a simple catch. 36/4
18.4 to F Hand, full on the stumps, moves towards the off side and goes for the ramp/scoop. He gets it on the full and over short fine leg but Zazai runs back and takes it over his shoulder. 159/8
9.5 to GJ Delany, Nabi picks up his first wicket. Delany goes for the slog sweep but fails to keep it down. Doesn't get the required distance on it. Najib takes a couple of step to his left at deep midwicket and settles under it. 65/6
8.4 to LJ Tucker, a brilliant catch. Tucker goes for the slog sweep again. He middles it but fails to keep it down. Naveen was a few yards in at deep midwicket and had to back-pedal a bit. He grabs it with both hands and tumbles back. 58/5
12.2 to MR Adair, a length ball around off, Dockrell looks to clear long-off but fails. Rashid, on the edge of the boundary line, pouches it calmly. 85/7
