Fall of wickets: 1-6 (Mohammad Shahzad, 2.2 ov), 2-40 (Karim Sadiq, 11.6 ov), 3-43 (Najibullah Zadran, 13.4 ov), 4-74 (Nawroz Mangal, 22.2 ov), 5-90 (Mohammad Nabi, 26.5 ov), 6-254 (Samiullah Shinwari, 49.5 ov)
2.2 to Mohammad Shahzad, oh the slower one has done it! Rubel rolled his fingers over the ball for the short of length ball which pitched outside off, it came in after pitching and Shahzad was beaten as he was trapped in front of the stumps around the knee roll and Bowden raised his finger. 6/1
11.6 to Karim Sadiq, he has fallen under pressure! Sunny bowled a slightly slower one towards middle, Sadiq played the shot a bit early while pushing it back and a leading edge from close to the sticker of the bat went back to the bowler for an easy catch. 40/2
13.4 to Najibullah Zadran, oh the ball's gone through him! Najibullah came down the track as the ball pitched around leg and was angled towards middle, and he played with a strange angle of the bat, keeping it horizontal, and the ball went right through. He couldn't get anywhere close to it. 43/3
26.5 to Mohammad Nabi, one more falls! Mominul pitched it up outside off, turned it away and the batsman drove with a lot of force only to give an outside edge to first slip where Nasir took a sharp catch. 90/5

Fall of wickets: 1-1 (Shamsur Rahman, 0.5 ov), 2-1 (Anamul Haque, 1.6 ov), 3-69 (Mushfiqur Rahim, 18.1 ov), 4-88 (Mominul Haque, 24.3 ov), 5-161 (Nasir Hossain, 38.6 ov), 6-165 (Naeem Islam, 39.5 ov), 7-165 (Abdur Razzak, 39.6 ov), 8-165 (Arafat Sunny, 40.1 ov), 9-205 (Ziaur Rahman, 43.6 ov), 10-222 (Rubel Hossain, 47.5 ov)
0.5 to Shamsur Rahman, oh what a beauty, that went right through Shamsur! Length delivery on the off stump nips in a tad and goes through the defence of the batsman, who played for the angle of the ball. The off stump goes for a walk, Shapoor roars and is mobbed by his team-mates. 1/1
40.1 to Arafat Sunny, oh three wickets in three balls! Zadran pitched it down leg and Sunny wanted to play it off his hips but only managed a thin edge to the keeper who goes up, and so does the umpire's finger. 165/8
1.6 to Anamul Haque, loud appeal for lbw and Bowden's crooked finger goes up! He angled it in from length around off and it hit the batsman in front of the leg stump, Bowden took his time for the decision, but from the first look it looked like it would have missed the leg stump. 1/2
39.5 to Naeem Islam, one more wicket falls in the Powerplay! Naeem came down the track and drove the length ball powerfully towards mid-off where Nawroz Mangal dived to his right for a good catch. It was going fast and flat. 165/6
38.6 to Nasir Hossain, fifth catch offered by Nasir and this time it's taken! It was a short of length ball well outside off, Nasir stayed back and chopped it straight into the hands of Shenwari at backward point. Big wicket for Afghanistan. 161/5
18.1 to Mushfiqur Rahim, oh Nabi has struck with some sharp turn, stunned silence in the ground! He flighted it by pitching it just outside off, Mushfiqur was on the move as he tried to turn it to leg but missed and was struck in front of the off stump for a loud appeal as the ball turned and the finger went up. The captain has to go back. 69/3
43.6 to Ziaur Rahman, gets the of stump! Nabi has done it, Ziaur took a step down to drive it on off, the ball spun in from just outside off and went through Ziaur's gate to hit the off stump. Afghanistan celebrate, onre wicket to go. 205/9
47.5 to Rubel Hossain, it's all over, Afghanistan have won, a landmark day for their cricket, the final wicket came after a swipe to midwicket, fielder gets under it and there's no fumbling this time. 222/10
24.3 to Mominul Haque, that's gone through Mominul, Shenwari gets rid of the set batsman! He sent down a legspinner around off, Mominul came down the track to drive but missed the line of the ball because of the turn and the ball hit the middle stump. The umpires are checking for the no ball now, no angles are conclusive because there are fielders on either side of the pitch blocking the path of the cameras. So we can't see clearly where the foot lands, but he seems fine and Mominul walks back. 88/4
