Fall of wickets: 1-47 (Tamim Iqbal, 14.3 ov), 2-52 (Anamul Haque, 16.4 ov), 3-102 (Soumya Sarkar, 25.5 ov), 4-119 (Mahmudullah, 29.1 ov), 5-233 (Shakib Al Hasan, 44.4 ov), 6-241 (Sabbir Rahman, 46.5 ov), 7-247 (Mushfiqur Rahim, 47.3 ov), 8-263 (Mominul Haque, 48.6 ov), 9-263 (Mashrafe Mortaza, 49.1 ov), 10-267 (Taskin Ahmed, 49.6 ov)
44.4 to Shakib Al Hasan, slower ball, and he has bowled him finally. Afghanistan needed this to put the brakes on. Shakib is early into this slog over midwicket, and gets an inside edge onto the stumps. This is delivered wide of the crease, and they are checking for a no-ball. Both his front and back foot are well in. Shakib has to go back. Inside edge onto the pad, and then a trickle into the base of off. 233/5
46.5 to Sabbir Rahman, Hamid Hasan has another wicket. Wide on the crease again, gets that sharp movement back in, Shabbir looks to make room, and is cramped. He chops it on. Hamid pulls out the Brett Lee-style chainsaw celebration. 241/6
25.5 to Soumya Sarkar, Two sounds there. Given. Sarkar wants to review, but can't because Bijoy wasted the review. This is full and straight, Sarkar plays a big shot, he is hit plumb in front, and only an inside edge can save him. Wilson has given him out. Sarkar is helpless with no review left. Replays suggest this might be front pad onto the back and not bat onto the pad. Good decision by Joel Wilson. 102/3
29.1 to Mahmudullah, Zadran has taken another wicket. Another lovely catch from Afsar Zazai. A length ball angling in, Mahludullah looks to defend, the extra bounce draws the edge, which is dying to the right of Afsar but he gets both his hands to it and takes it inches off the ground. 119/4
49.1 to Mashrafe Mortaza, Length ball, quick, Mortaza slogs, is beaten by the pace, and is beaten. That's one ball you are asked to not bowl at the death, but he has got the wicket with it. 263/9
49.6 to Taskin Ahmed, bowled him. Bangladesh bowled out off the last ball of the innings. Taksin goes for the big hit, Alam is full and straight, and he has pinged back the off stump. 267/10
14.3 to Tamim Iqbal, you could sense it. You could see a reckless shot was around the corner. Tamim opens the face to a length ball on off. Manages just an edge that Afsar Zazai takes diving to his left. He takes it one-handed, but in mid-air he gets it right hand around and nearly transfers it from left to right. The right hand has come around because the ball is slipping out. The right glove pushes it back into the left. This is top keeping. Afghanistan have taken their first World Cup wicket, and they have built dot by dot to it. Persistent accurate cricket from a team known to be mercurial and unpredictable. Moles and Nabi will be pleased. 47/1
16.4 to Anamul Haque, Ashraf has got another. Or has he? Bijoy is hit on the back leg. The only thing that could save Bijoy is the impact, and he has reviewed this after being given out. Length ball, seams in from outside off, beats his drive, hits him on the back pad. The replay comes back with "umpire's call" on impact. So the decision stays. Ashraf has two now: last 16 balls, no run, wickets of both the openers. 52/2
47.3 to Mushfiqur Rahim, high full toss but not high enough to be called a no-ball even despite the smallness of Rahim. The ball gets too close to him, and he can neither hit it for six nor keep it down. Sami Shenwari charges in from deep midwicket and takes a good catch low to his right. But has Rahim already done the damage with a superb innings?. 247/7

TOTAL42.5 Ov (RR: 3.78)162
Fall of wickets: 1-2 (Javed Ahmadi, 0.6 ov), 2-2 (Afsar Zazai, 1.1 ov), 3-3 (Asghar Afghan, 2.6 ov), 4-65 (Nawroz Mangal, 22.4 ov), 5-78 (Samiullah Shinwari, 25.4 ov), 6-136 (Najibullah Zadran, 36.6 ov), 7-136 (Mohammad Nabi, 37.1 ov), 8-154 (Mirwais Ashraf, 40.6 ov), 9-154 (Hamid Hassan, 41.5 ov), 10-162 (Aftab Alam, 42.5 ov)
0.6 to Javed Ahmadi, and Bangladesh have struck in the first over. Short of a length, sits up a little and Ahmadi is early into the the shot. He is looking to work it to leg, but manages a big leading edge that lobs up for an easy catch for Mortaza who runs towards cover to claim it. 2/1
2.6 to Asghar Afghan, Bangladesh are running through Afghanistan here. Nervous batting from them here. Wide length ball here, Stanikzai's feet don't move and he throws his hands in a nothing shot well away from his body. Mahmudullah fumbles at first slip, but he doesn't drop it. 3/3
37.1 to Mohammad Nabi, and this is unravelling fast bow. Length ball outside off, looks to hit hard, doesn't get all of it, and mid-off takes an easy catch. Too much pressure of asking rate with hardly any wickets in hand. 136/7
1.1 to Afsar Zazai, another wicket. This is a great start for Bangladesh. Short of a length, outside off, angles in Zazai caught on the hop. The ball skids through to hit him in front of off. Or is it in front of off? Given out by Davis. The two batsmen discuss the review, but decide against it. Seems like umpire's call on the impact with regards to off stump and also with regards to the height. 2/2
41.5 to Hamid Hassan, swings hard at a length ball outside off, gets a thick edge that lobs up to point. One more wicket to go. 154/9
36.6 to Najibullah Zadran, flighted outside off, dips on him, turns him, beats him all ends up, given out lbw but he has reviewed it. The ball is turning a lot, but Najib thinks he has got outside the line of off. Oh boy. The impact seems outside off, but the hawkeye has returned an umpire's call. I don't think there was more than a hair's breadth worth of ball inside the line when it hit the pad. It stays with the on-field call. 136/6
40.6 to Mirwais Ashraf, another big hit as Shakib tosses this wide outside off. This is clever bowling. Tailenders just go after them. No timing on this. Caught at long-off. 154/8
22.4 to Nawroz Mangal, big catch from Rubel but he is not coming up after going down. This is swept hard. Timed it. Rubel has to rush back at deep square leg. The amount of timing has surprised him. He takes it head high, but the backward momentum takes him down. He doesn't come up. Seems to have hurt his calf. Gets attention from the medical staff. 65/4
