Shapoor Zadran806027.50245301
6.5 to DA Warner, that's out, there was a noise, short of a length, tried to chop it through point, a faint nick through the keeper, big cheers all round, there's a trumpet blowing somewhere, Shapoor Zadran's ecstatic. 37/1
48.6 to GJ Bailey, gets the yorker right but after being hit around, in the blockhole on middle, Bailey fails to dig it out and the stumps take a beating. 263/6

Gulbadin Naib201809.0022000
Karim Sadiq602223.66190100
49.2 to MEK Hussey, bowled'im, misses his half-century, shortish on the off, moves away to chop that through point, gets an inside edge onto the stumps. 269/7
49.5 to JL Pattinson, Another wicket for Sadiq, slogs at that one, it's a straight ball from round the wicket, misses it completely and is bowled. 271/8
Javed Ahmadi401604.0090000
Samiullah Shinwari1014814.80302110
37.6 to MJ Clarke, stumped, Clarke just kept walking, was done in by the spin, it turned away as he charged down the pitch to launch him over midwicket, missed, the keeper collected, he was in no hurry to take down the stumps as Clarke had given up and began walking, four down now. 181/4
Mohammad Nabi1005025.00230201
34.6 to MS Wade, Wade goes, a soft dismissal in the end, bowled it quicker and it was struck well but straight back to the bowler, Nabi reacted well to bend low and take it clean. 168/2
36.2 to GJ Maxwell, Maxwell has holed out, struck it very well but didn't get the elevation he wanted, struck it flat, tempted by the flight and played it straight down long-on's throat. 172/3

James Pattinson914635.11385240
11.1 to Mohammad Shahzad, edged and taken by the keeper, short of a good length, it appeared to keep just a little low, Shehzad had made up his mind to cut, got a thick edge to Wade. 49/3
11.3 to Nawroz Mangal, trapped in front, Pattinson pushes that full, on middle and leg, Mangal gets a little across, is on the crease when he misses and it strikes him on the pads, the only question was whether it missed leg. Unlikely, and that's what the umpire thinks as well, one more goes. 49/4
42.3 to Gulbadin Naib, short and Naib shapes up for a cut, there was an edge, a clear sound as he went for it, Wade dived low and to his left to catch that, the umpires are trying to verify if it carried, they've gone to the third umpire. Replays show it was a clean catch, he's got to go. 199/9
Mitchell Starc914745.22368030
1.5 to Javed Ahmadi, bowled'im! Quick and it swung in to castle him, landed on middle, was late in bringing his bat down to play it, got an inside edge and was bowled, an early loss for Afghanistan. 6/1
5.5 to Karim Sadiq, Through the gate, Sadiq has been given a tough time, short of a good length, got it to nip back in and Sadiq, played a little outside the line to that one, was bowled between bat and pad. 26/2
35.6 to Asghar Afghan, taken! Stanikzai has to go and his arms are over his head in disbelief, short and wide and he drags it hard towards midwicket, Clarke reacts sharply and takes a good catch moving to his left, relief for Australia, the end of another fighting knock. 165/6
37.4 to Samiullah Shinwari, bowled by the slower one, he seemed to pick it, opened the face there to guide it towards third man, got an inside edge onto the stumps. 171/8
Mitchell Johnson913423.77372140
30.4 to Mohammad Nabi, Johnson has struck, Nabi was rooted to the crease there and just loosely tried to chip that over the in-field on the off side, missed it completely and was bowled. 135/5
36.4 to Najibullah Zadran, appeal for a catch, Bowden raises his finger after an eternity, there was an outside edge surely but did the ball bounce on its way to the keeper, poked at a fullish delivery. Did the ball bump into the ground before getting to the keeper? Bowden ultimately thinks not, we need another replay but officially he's out. 166/7
Xavier Doherty7.513414.34292200
43.5 to Dawlat Zadran, holes out, tossed up and he swings hard, gets too much elevation there and finds Michael Hussey at deep midwicket. 206/10
