Fall of wickets: 1-42 (Rahmanullah Gurbaz, 5.3 ov), 2-75 (Karim Janat, 10.3 ov), 3-83 (Usman Ghani, 11.2 ov), 4-96 (Mohammad Nabi, 13.4 ov), 5-155 (Asghar Afghan, 18.2 ov), 6-167 (Rashid Khan, 19.1 ov), 7-167 (Sharafuddin Ashraf, 19.2 ov)
10.3 to Karim Janat, good length ball on the stumps. Karim swings and misses. Wellington Masakadza is bowling the tough lengths and getting runs off him seems to be a difficult proposition. So, Karim tries to slog him out of the attack and misses the line of the delivery. He is bowled and has to walk back. 75/2
5.3 to Rahmanullah Gurbaz, good length delivery in the channel outside the off stump. Rahmanullah had to chase it and ends up getting an outside edge to the keeper. He seems to be upset with himself as he is admonishing himself for playing the stroke. Looked like he was expecting a short delivery. 42/1
13.4 to Mohammad Nabi, short ball outside the off stump. Nahi looks to cut and doesn't time it well. He gets a top edge to deep point. Musakanda runs in and takes the catch by diving forward at the last moment, as the ball was dying on him. 96/4
18.2 to Asghar Afghan, fuller ball outside the off stump. He lofts it straight into the hands of the fielder at long off. 155/5
19.1 to Rashid Khan, short ball outside the off stump. Slower delivery. Rashid Khan looks to cut and gets an outside edge to the keeper. 167/6
19.2 to Sharafuddin Ashraf, and Muzarabani has two in two! Fuller ball and he lofts it to deep midwicket. Masakadza gets under it and takes the catch. 167/7
11.2 to Usman Ghani, fuller, faster outside the off stump. Usman was wanting to slog once again. No timing and no connection. The ball lobs up in the air and Ryan Burl running in from long off takes the catch. 83/3

0.5 to TS Kamunhukamwe, and he's gone. Maiden T20I wicket on debut..A length ball outside off, Kamunhukamwe clears the front length and tries to hit it across the line to on side. Gets an inside edge which ricochet back onto the stumps.. 2/1
5.5 to SC Williams, around the wicket. Nabi sends down a quicker length ball which kept low on the stumps. Williams gets down on one knee and tries to sweep, goes past the bat and hits the middle stump.. 39/2
8.3 to TK Musakanda, another wicket, a slower shortish delivery and much wider. Musakanda took couple of steps forward and tries to slap it over the off side. But, only manages to send a flat catch towards the extra cover region, Nabi held it comfortably. 52/3
10.2 to M Shumba, back of a length, slower and outside off, Shumba moves across the stumps and tries to scoop it over the short fine leg region. He ends up in an awkward position and only manages to edge it back towards the keeper.. 56/4
10.3 to R Mutumbami, two-in-two for Janat ..good length ball around off stump, a bit of extra bounce which surprises Mutumbami as he pushes at it. Another simple catch to Rahmanullah. 56/5
