TOTAL15 Ov (RR: 6.33)95/5
Fall of wickets: 1-14 (Hazratullah Zazai, 1.3 ov), 2-16 (Rahmanullah Gurbaz, 1.6 ov), 3-26 (Ibrahim Zadran, 3.5 ov), 4-66 (Najibullah Zadran, 10.5 ov), 5-66 (Mohammad Nabi, 10.6 ov)
10.5 to Najibullah Zadran, GONE this time! The short ball does the trick again. Banged in short down leg, Zadran goes for the pull but gets a bit of a top edge with the keeper moving really well to his left and completing a good catch. Zadran walked immediately. The gamble to bring back Little works for Ireland. 50 T20I wickets for Little.. 66/4
10.6 to Mohammad Nabi, Oh, my word what a grab by Tucker! Fast, short ball at the body of Nabi. He goes for the pull, but the ball catches his gloves and lobs over the stumps. For all money, that is falling short of the keeper but Tucker runs, plonks his right glove forward and completes a stunning take. Golden duck for Nabi and Little is on a hat-trick. . 66/5
1.3 to Hazratullah Zazai, In the aiiir and taken nicely by Simi Singh! Looks to for a third straight four does Zazai to the length ball outside off, does not get anywhere close, though. Miscues his drive over mid-off where Simi moves to his right and pouches it. Important catch.. 14/1
1.6 to Rahmanullah Gurbaz, Gone this time around! Yes, he is. Back of a length outside off, he has a poke at it and gets a thick outside edge to the keeper. No confusion now.. 16/2
3.5 to Ibrahim Zadran, That is a top catch by McCarthy! A very strange dismissal, I must say. Banged in short outside off, he just hangs his bat as he looks to sway outside the line, but the ball catches the cue end of his blade and flies over short third man, where the fielder jumps to his left, gets both hands to it and completes an excellent take.. 26/3

Fall of wickets: 1-17 (Andy Balbirnie, 2.3 ov), 2-38 (Paul Stirling, 4.4 ov), 3-45 (Lorcan Tucker, 5.3 ov)
2.3 to A Balbirnie, Big appeal and given! Mujeeb is pumped, Afghanistan supporters are pumped. They are in this, make no mistake. Darted in middle and leg, he looks to sweep it away, misses and is caught right in front.. 17/1
4.4 to PR Stirling, Is there a twist here? A tad short outside off, he swings at it hard looking to clear deep midwicket. But gets more height than elevation. The fielder, Naveen-ul-Haq, comes in and completes a simple chance. 38/2
5.3 to LJ Tucker, Slog sweeps, mistimes it and Tucker departs! Another twist? Tossed up outside off, he goes for the sweep, can only get a top edge as short third man completes a simple take.. 45/3
