4.2 to Mohammad Shahzad, that's plumb! And given. Length ball skidding on at knee height as Shahzad gets on the back foot to try and whip this through the leg side. Misses and is rapped in front of middle stump, deep in the crease. He's not a very tall man, so the umpire thinks about it for height and decides there's enough going in Murtagh's favour to raise the finger. 12/1
48.5 to Rashid Khan, taken by sweeper cover running in from the boundary. Seems like yet another slower ball. It's overpitched at a middle stump line and he wants to pump it into the leg side. But he's through it early and is forced to open the face in the end. Simi takes a good running catch. 240/8
1023713.70393100
7.1 to Rahmat Shah, big turn into him and Rahmat has been given out leg before here. Was it going down? At best that is a marginal call. He's on the back foot as this rips in a long way and beats him on the back foot flick. Strikes him at a leg stump line. Umpire thinks that's hitting leg. It just turned so much. Perhaps his decision to be on the back foot has cost him. 23/2

703715.28235010
17.6 to Hashmatullah Shahidi, chopped on. Length ball outside off and spinning in to cramp the batsman who was looking to punch it on the off side, gets an inside edge on the off stick as it keeps a touch low. Maiden ODI wicket for Cameron-Dow. 69/4
501713.40192000
18.6 to Samiullah Shinwari, What a catch! Balbrinie goes down, one-handed to his left to take it inches off the ground. Was a length ball on the stumps, Shinwari goes back to defend but it turns past him to take an outside edge. Afghanistan in trouble now, 74 for 5. 74/5
1005625.60313240
43.2 to Asghar Afghan, finds fine leg. Short ball angled into the hips, there for some punishment, but Asghar's initial movement down leg side means he's cramped on the ramp. Finds KOB there. A superb innings nonetheless. This innings was in danger of ending a lot earlier if it wasn't for the captain. 191/6
43.6 to Mohammad Nabi, has he edged that? Yes. Nabi departs. That same line, Ranking keeps hammering it and it pays off. Short of a length outside off and he's late on the slice off the back foot. Thin edge and that's two in the over. Start of another collapse?. 193/7

2.4 to WTS Porterfield, on the back foot in front of off stump. Porterfield has no chance of surviving this lbw appeal. Length and zipping in at him. Keeps low as well and he's trapped on the back foot whip. 13/1
1015225.20367100
7.3 to PR Stirling, taken at mid-on! Asghar Afghan leaping backwards after a few steps has held on to end Stirling's innings. That is big for Afghanistan, he was looking good. Length ball wide outside off. Wants to slap it on the up through cover but it's off the inside of the toe-end and grabbed by the captain. 27/2
7.6 to Simi Singh, given! Simi is late on the ball yet again. Late enough to not even get an inside edge this time. It's a close call because he's stuck in front of leg stump on the knee roll, but that could be hitting the top of leg. Dawlat getting another one to skid in from a length. 29/3
1006016.00262300
15.2 to KJ O'Brien, what have you done KOB!? A juicy full toss on the stumps, KOB looks to repeat the shot but fails to middle it and an easy catch for Asghar at mid-on. He is livid with himself. 73/4
1004514.50301100
42.6 to GH Dockrell, stumping chance sent upstairs. This could be tight. Dockrell stepped out and didn't get to the pitch of this ball spinning into him. He got body on it, but it richochets off the pad and floats up for Shahzad who takes the bails off as Dockrell stretches back for the crease...and he catches him short! That's the breakthrough! Nabi strikes with his last ball and the partnership is cut short at 143. A superb hand from Dockrell, and a tame end, if not unlucky. He's done his part, but so has Nabi with that last ball. 216/5
904414.88261220
43.4 to SW Poynter, good catch at deep square. Poynter with three of the most nervous balls he's probably faced in a while. The last of them is connected sweetly, but it's a panic-stricken release. Length outside off, swept firmly, but Zazai keeps his cool and takes this to his left on his toes. 217/6
