18.1 to Iftikhar Ahmed, Holes out to Rashid Khan at midwicket! Slow ball does the trick, Farooqi lands it on a length and it came off the bottom-edge of the bat, got the height but no the distance as Rashid swallows it up much to the delight of the bowler. 161/6
1.1 to Mohammad Haris, Haris holes out to square leg! Nicely tossed up delivery that came in from outside off and he planted his front leg, got a top edge and Ghani in the deep settled underneath the skier and pouched it safely, Haris's ebullience lasted just three deliveries. 3/1
14.4 to Imad Wasim, Round the wicket, gives it a lot of flight and Imad loses his patience, went for the wild hoick through the leg side, gets a thick outside edge and Karim Janat sticks his hands out at short third and gobbles it up! What a snare! Crucial crucial breakthrough. 123/5
4.1 to Tayyab Tahir, That's an absolute screamer! Nice loopy arm delivery on a full length outside off and he goes hard at it, finds Fareed at cover who gamely jumped one-handed and got dice! What an absolute stunner, amazing catch and Tayyab Tahir has to go!. 28/2
19.1 to Shadab Khan, Hit wicket and zingers are alight! Loses his balance, he was too early into the pull shot and was swiveling off the backfoot, bat hitting the stumps, anticlimatic finish to his innings. 171/7
7.3 to Abdullah Shafique, Rearranges his stumps! Dances down the track and makes a mess of his stumps, was nowhere near the line of the ball. A delicious googly pitched on a length and spun back just enough to clatter the middle stump. Shafique grimaces, he knows he missed the length and that way too ambitious of him, not picking it off his hand and way too risky. Wickets are tumbling. 63/3
13.1 to Saim Ayub, Mujeeb has taken a blinder! He was running in from deep cover and dived in front hanging on to it brilliantly as Saim departs for 49! He deserved a half-century, showed a wide array of strokes and batted in an uninhibited manner. Some very silky drives and a few maximums in his entertaining knock. 108/4

15.2 to Rashid Khan, Tossed up outside off, he skips down the track and lofts it straight to Abdullah Shafique at long-off, smites him high but not quite getting it far enough and his entertaining cameo come to an end. Fine catch, came running in and held onto it. 95/9
18.4 to Azmatullah Omarzai, Cries of catch it and bagged at long-on! Pakistan register a thumping win and Shadab breathes a sigh of relief. Tayyab Tahir was backpedalling and reverse cups it well to send Omarzai back in the hut. 116/10
4.4 to Rahmanullah Gurbaz, Cranking up the pace here and he has wrecked the stumps! The archer celebration is out as Gurbaz gets beaten by the pace, middle stump is flattened it was a low full toss and Ihsanullah strikes early in the piece! Massive breakthrough!. 35/1
10.4 to Karim Janat, Top-edge flies to he keeper! Another scorching delivery that rises steeply off the pitch and he got himself into a tangle, can't pull that away properly and Haris makes no mistake behind the stumps, pouches it safely as Afghanistan find themselves in a rut! Captain to walk out next. 71/5
14.3 to Fareed Ahmad, Round the wicket, dug into the pitch, fast and furious does it again! Ball got big on him, he didn't get he middle of the bat and the ball went high up in the air, Mohammad Wasim at deep cover came charging in and takes a superb diving catch. 87/8
5.4 to Sediqullah Atal, Squealing for an lbw, the umpire has not raised his finger and looks pretty confident, Shadab asks his teammates to calm down and has decided to send it upstairs. Looks pretty adjacent in the replay, ball is pretty close to the blade as he attempted a flick, waiting for the ultra-edge, well there is no bat invovled as the ball passes the bat, pitches in line impact in line and wickets hitting and the on-field umpire has to change his on-field decision! That's a good breakthrough for Pakistan because he trying to cut loose.. 37/2
6.4 to Ibrahim Zadran, Zips it in quicker on middle stump, he shovels it to Nawaz at wide long on who clings on! Came charging in from the deep and lunged forward to gobble it up, he made sure it didn't burst out of his hands, excellent fielding as another one bites the dust, this was a wrong'un. 39/3
11.2 to Usman Ghani, Miscues the skier! Shadab gets his 100th wicket in T20Is! Nifty footwork on the boundary rope from Abdullah to cling onto the catch, the deluge is getting suffocating for Afghanistan, simple catch at long-off. 73/6
11.4 to Mujeeb Ur Rahman, Ball is gripping and turning as he fails to execute the reverse sweep and that prompts an lbw appeal, they go upstairs. there is no bat involved as confirmed by the ultra-edge, ball tracking coming up, three reds and that is stone dead lbw, Afghanistan lose their review and Mujeeb starts to take the long walk into the pavillion. 73/7
