Fall of wickets: 1-25 (Mohammad Shahzad, 4.1 ov), 2-158 (Noor Ali Zadran, 32.1 ov), 3-165 (Nawroz Mangal, 34.6 ov), 4-220 (Mohammad Nabi, 43.6 ov), 5-224 (Najibullah Zadran, 44.6 ov), 6-250 (Asghar Afghan, 48.2 ov)
4.1 to Mohammad Shahzad, this has gone miles up in the air! Shahzad wasn't trying anything too dramatic as he flicked to leg, but he played under a ball that rose on him and the top edge almost kissed the low cloud covering the ground before rocketing back down to earth, where Mutumbami was waiting to catch it.. 25/1
48.2 to Asghar Stanikzai, gone this time! Panyangara flings down a fast bouncer, perhaps taking the batsman by surprise. Stanikzai is late on the ball, the ball coming off the splice and looping down to long leg, where Luke Jongwe holds the catch right in front of his face.. 250/6
44.6 to Najibullah Zadran, well held by Ervine! Najibullah slogged at this one angling across him, and the top edge looked like it might fall safely at short third man. But Ervine, who was at gully, nipped across at full speed and caught it on the run, over his shoulder. Afghanistan are stumbling a little now.. 224/5
43.6 to Mohammad Nabi, a fine knock comes to an end! Unselfish batting from Nabi. He was targeting the wide long-on boundary, looking for six, but it was a tired-looking shot and the bat turned in his hands as he played it. The ball still went very high in the air, but Chamu Chibhabha has a safe pair of hands in the outfield and he held it cleanly.. 220/4
32.1 to Noor Ali Zadran, this will peg them back a little! Noor Ali set himself for a slog sweep, but the ball was fuller and straighter than he was looking for and he completely lost his shape as he swung wildly to leg. The ball ballooned high off the top edge, and Chisoro sprinted to his left from mid on to set himself under the ball as it came down not far from the non-striker's end. It wasn't the easiest catch, but he clung on with both hands.. 158/2
34.6 to Nawroz Mangal, what a catch! Long off is out, and Chisoro is up in the circle at mid on. Mangal top edged a swipe that was aimed over Chisoro's head, but the ball swirled in the direction of mid off. The long off fielder would never have been able to get there in time, but Chisoro charged across the field and tumbled forward as the ball rocketed towards the ground, getting a hand cleanly underneath it.. 165/3

TOTAL46.4 Ov (RR: 4.56, 191 Mins)213
Fall of wickets: 1-15 (Chamu Chibhabha, 3.4 ov), 2-63 (Richmond Mutumbami, 13.1 ov), 3-115 (Tinotenda Mutombodzi, 25.5 ov), 4-116 (Craig Ervine, 26.3 ov), 5-123 (Sikandar Raza, 29.3 ov), 6-143 (Tendai Chisoro, 34.2 ov), 7-204 (Elton Chigumbura, 44.4 ov), 8-211 (Luke Jongwe, 45.6 ov), 9-211 (Wellington Masakadza, 46.1 ov), 10-213 (John Nyumbu, 46.4 ov)
44.4 to E Chigumbura, Chigumbura departs! He'd not been able to find the boundary even once in this innings, and needed to hit out at every ball. This was the ball to hit - a length delivery on middle and leg - but he picked out the fielder at deep midwicket. An off, off-colour innings. Though Jongwe remains, this should be the game in the bag for Afghanistan.. 204/7
46.1 to WP Masakadza, and another! Zimbabwe are crumbling away. Aftab followed Dawlat's cue and fired down a fast yorker right at the batsman's toes. Masakadza swung right over the top of it, and his middle stump was knocked clear out of the ground.. 211/9
3.4 to CJ Chibhabha, an early wicket! Dawlat targeted Chibhabha with a short ball, and the batsman swiveled back to pull. But he couldn't get himself into position quickly enough, the ball skewing off the splice and looping tamely to the mid-on fielder.. 15/1
45.6 to LM Jongwe, fierce yorker! Jongwe wanted to drive through extra cover, but this fast, reverse swinging yorker zipped under his bat in a flash. Dawlat Zadran celebrates, and Afghanistan close in on a series-leveling win.. 211/8
13.1 to R Mutumbami, he's played the shot well, but now it's brought about his downfall! Mutumbami swept hard at this one, but the ball bounced on him and a top edge looped to short fine leg. The fielder there had plenty of ground to cover, but timed his dive just right to hold the ball inches above the turf.. 63/2
25.5 to CT Mutombodzi, oh what a catch! Mutombodzi stepped back and lifted a drive inside out over extra cover, but couldn't get it quite square enough of the fielder running in from long off. It was Shafiqullah down there, I think, who is on as a sub fielder for Noor Ali. He had a lot of ground to cover, and had to dive too, but the ball stuck in his palm. Afghanistan snaffle another one!. 115/3
34.2 to TS Chisoro, not for long! Chisoro jumps down the track and swings mightily out to wide long on with rather more height than distance in the shot. It's not an easy catch, but the fielder does well to get into position underneath it and hold on. This is surely Afghanistan's game now!. 143/6
26.3 to CR Ervine, Ervine falls, Afghanistan are surging! Well, Shenwari's caught and bowled has saved his face. Ervine stepped down the track and hammered the ball straight back at him, and Shenwari stuck a hand up just in time. Somehow, the ball stuck, and the bowler set off in frenzied celebration towards fine leg.. 116/4
29.3 to Sikandar Raza, And there you go. Panic stations, everyone. He's bowled him! Shenwari has set off for the midwicket boundary, roaring in celebration, and Shahzad looks like he wants to smash the disturbed stumps down! Raza is slumped in the crease. He didn't read this one, that zipped straight on without spinning and also kept really low. Afghanistan are well on top now!. 123/5
