0.2 to Saim Ayub, Gottim! Saim Ayub lured by the tempter angled in from outside off and he tentatively pokes at it, edges it to Gurbaz who dived to his left and pouched it well! It was an incredible delivery and Saim was caught in two minds whether to go hard at it or steer it down to point and takes the long walk back into pavilion. 0/1
0.3 to Abdullah Shafique, Goes full and hits the pads as he tries to flick it down leg, that looks stone dead, no deflection on ultra-edge and Abdullah Shafique goes without troubling the scorers, three reds and what a over it is turning out to be for Farooqi! He has been spot on! Farooqi is on a hat-trick!. 0/2
3.3 to Mohammad Haris, Edged and taken! A rash swat and he nicks it to the keeper, playing away from his body with minimal feet movement, a scorching delivery in the corridor and Pakistan invite more trouble. Jubilation for Afghanistan though, they have been superb so far, picking wickets and making life tough for Pakistan batters. 20/3
10.6 to Azam Khan, Traps his lbw! Azam Khan contemplates taking a review, consults Imad and then decides to take the long walk back towards the dressing room, it was a superb googly that kept low and tenderised his pads as he was just rooted back in his crease, umpire took his time before raising the dreaded finger. Rashid Khan rejoices as Pakistan stare into the abyss. This is vintage Rashid, spinning a web around batters, suffocating them with his bag of tricks. Rashid you can do no wrong!. 63/5
9.5 to Tayyab Tahir, Goes up in the air, two men under it, Omarzai tracks the ball from the bat, through the air, towards him and then into his hand, superb work at square leg, he had to cover a lot of distance and Tayyab has to go! He knew the moment he hit that he mistimed it. This was pitched short and didn't rise as much as Tayyab anticipated, he went for the hook looking a bit ungainly, not on top of the bounce and this is a timely wicket for Afghanistan as the partnership was starting to look dangerous. 60/4

Fall of wickets: 1-30 (Usman Ghani, 3.6 ov), 2-86 (Rahmanullah Gurbaz, 15.3 ov), 3-102 (Ibrahim Zadran, 17.2 ov) • DRS
3.6 to Usman Ghani, Zingers are alight! Slower one rips through the stumps, 123 kph delivery on a slightly shorter length, flummoxing him completely as he inside edges it onto the stumps! This has been a probing over, bumpers, yorkers, and now a slow ball to hoodwink Ghani who completely befuddled on this occasion, feet going nowhere and just stuck on the crease.. 30/1
17.2 to Ibrahim Zadran, Test for Ihsanullah, make or break over. He rises to the occasion, darts in a scorching delivery on a shorter length, rips away in the corridor, takes the outside edge and Azam Khan makes no mistake behind the stumps, ball was whizzing away to his right but he plucks it well with his big bucket hands. 102/3
