Sikandar Raza201608.0041100
Richard Ngarava4043210.7584240
7.6 to Karim Janat, grabs it on the second attempt. Was a length ball angling away, Janat went for the cut but got a thick outside edge that flew to the right of the keeper. It popped out on the first attempt but Mutumbami kept his calm to pouch it on the second attempt. 80/1
18.6 to Mohammad Nabi, length ball outside off, stays back and smashes it down the ground. Mavuta pedals back from long-off and takes it calmly. Nabi falls for an 11-ball 7. 185/3
Blessing Muzarabani403829.5093210
19.3 to Asghar Afghan, too full on the stumps, clears his front leg and goes aerial towards long-on, where Raza settles under it, balancing him well after taking the catch so as not to step over the boundary line. 192/4
19.5 to Rashid Khan, short of length outside off, looked like a slower ball. Rashid looked to smash it towards deep midwicket but got the top edge and a simple catch for the wicketkeeper. 198/5

14.2 to Rahmanullah Gurbaz, down the track and looks to smash over long-on but it's slower through the air from Burl and he isn't to the pitch of the ball. The ball spins away and the resulting top edge is pouched by Tiripano at backward point. 154/2

Fareed Ahmad403127.7582110
4.5 to TK Musakanda, length ball around off, clears his front leg and goes for the pull but ends up hitting it straight to deep midwicket, Afghanistan have the first breakthrough. 38/1
16.2 to Sikandar Raza, slower bouncer outside off, pulls it from there but ends up hitting straight to deep midwicket. Raza departs for 22 off 14. 124/5
Mohammad Nabi2024012.0002100
Karim Janat401423.50131000
10.3 to SC Williams, Gone! A leading edge taken at point was Williams looks to flick this length ball on the leg side. 83/2
14.3 to RP Burl, the middle stump is out of the ground. A brilliant yorker, Burl looks to go for a big hit and misses it completely. 111/4
Rashid Khan402837.0072010
13.1 to TS Kamunhukamwe, bowls him with a googly. A length ball at the stumps, Kamunhukamwe looked to back away and cut it but was beaten by the pace and the turn. 106/3
17.2 to R Mutumbami, castled. It's another googly. Goes for the slog sweep and misses it completely. 133/6
17.4 to W Madhevere, fuller on the stumps, goes for the slog sweep and misses. Is hit right in front of the middle, low on the pads. And that's an easy decision for the umpire. 134/7
