29.3 to Shahid Afridi, you said it, JC. Slog over midwicket and the off stump is knocked off it's perch. This pitches on a good length outside off and darts in just a touch, Afridi employs one of his favourite shots and the result is no more a surprise. Afghanistan are ecstatic. 117/6
47.6 to Umar Gul, castled! You miss, I hit says Dawlat. It was fullish and Gul was a little rooted on leg stump as he swung for the fences again. This time though the ball seems to have ducked in the smallest bit to beat him and crash into the stumps. 217/8
Mohammad Nabi804605.75224100
Amir Hamza812212.75311000
12.3 to Sharjeel Khan, slog sweep straight into the hands of deep midwicket! That's a terribly soft dismissal. This posed no threat to him, actually it flighted just a bit outside off and was in his arc. But Sharjeel just hasn't hit this well enough, especially with three men on the leg side boundary. Afghanistan have been very disciplined so far and they snare a deserved wicket, if not off the best ball. 55/1
Mirwais Ashraf812923.62313000
19.5 to Mohammad Hafeez, taken at mid-off! Hafeez has played one slog too many! Another good length ball targeting top of off. The pressure generated by the Afghanistan bowlers over the past five overs shows as the batsman goes for another almighty swing. Only manages a leading edge which gives Nabi the easiest of catches. 78/2
42.4 to Anwar Ali, skips down the track and lofts over extra cover, but Nawroz Mangal has made a spectacular run and grabs it in front of his body! The bowler had spotted him charging and dragged the length short. His pace is not enough to bother Anwar into changing his shot though as he swings with an open face. It goes high and the man had to race a long way to his left from mid-off, had his eyes on the ball all the way through and sticks his hands out at the perfect time to snag it safely. 177/7
Samiullah Shinwari703424.85212110
22.6 to Ahmed Shehzad, strikes in his first over and another Pakistan batsman falls to a slog! Flatter delivery on the stumps, Shehzad clears his front leg and wanted to whack this to the next town. Gets an inside edge onto leg stump. Shenwari is pumped! Afghanistan on top!. 89/3
26.5 to Sohaib Maqsood, another for Shenwari as Maqsood perishes to mid-on! Flighted on off stump and he drags it towards the leg side. Doesn't bother to keep it down. It was only a matter of time considering he was hitting everything way too hard. Maqsood is completely out of sorts in this series. Meanwhile, Shenwari becomes the highest wicket-taker for Afghanistan. 108/5

Umar Gul904424.88337000
4.6 to Mohammad Shahzad, 131 kph, nicked off says umpire Billy Bowden! Shehzad though is looking at his bat and is staring back. Terrific delivery though as this back of a length delivery gains a little more bounce. Far too much for that back foot punch and Umar Akmal pouches an easy catch. He was playing away from his body and this delivery straightened nicely. But did he edge it though? I'm not really sure. 32/1
40.4 to Mohammad Nabi, ducks back in off a good length and Nabi was caught in the crease while trying to flick through midwicket. Umpire Bowden shakes his head first but then raises his old crooked finger. The batsman is shocked, but he has to walk back. No bat on that and I think that might just have clipped leg stump, by a feather says HawkEye. 159/6
Anwar Ali402305.75154000
Junaid Khan611602.66262000
Shahid Afridi1003113.10393000
36.6 to Asghar Afghan, leading edge goes straigh to point! Stanikzai's trouble vigil at the crease finally ends and Afridi is just relieved that he has contributed today. It was pushed full and down the leg side. The batsman was charging him, having made his own room and tried to whip it away through the leg side. But he's deceived. 139/3
Saeed Ajmal912522.77372020
18.5 to Noor Ali Zadran, this time he's trapped in front. Ajmal has struck in his first over! Struck low on the front pad as this turns in from outside the off stump. He was trying to play around his pads again and this time he pays the price.. 65/2
44.1 to Dawlat Zadran, off goes the middle stump as the doosra finally fetches a wicket. He was lunging down the wrong line and of this flighted ball beats the outside edge by a considerable distance. 172/8
Mohammad Hafeez9.202933.10310030
39.5 to Najibullah Zadran, chopped onto his stumps and Najibullah just stands there in disappointment. Goes for the cut as he sees this a bit shortish and outside off, but the ball stays a bit low and the inside edge does him in.. 151/5
45.6 to Shapoor Zadran, rank slog over midwicket manifests as a leading edge and Ajmal snares a catch at point. Tossed up delivery angled in on off stump. Wasn't to the pitch of it as he swings away as most No.10s do and has to walk back. 175/9
47.2 to Samiullah Shinwari, knocks middle of middle and Pakistan have got the bonus point to go top of the table in this Asia Cup. Length ball keeps low as he looks to pull. Sneaks under the bat and then it's timber!. 176/10
