Fall of wickets: 1-0 (Mohammad Shahzad, 0.3 ov), 2-5 (Hazratullah Zazai, 1.2 ov), 3-56 (Hashmatullah Shahidi, 13.5 ov), 4-75 (Rahmat Shah, 19.2 ov), 5-77 (Mohammad Nabi, 20.2 ov), 6-160 (Gulbadin Naib, 33.1 ov), 7-162 (Najibullah Zadran, 33.5 ov), 8-166 (Dawlat Zadran, 34.6 ov), 9-205 (Rashid Khan, 37.3 ov), 10-207 (Mujeeb Ur Rahman, 38.2 ov)
0.3 to Mohammad Shahzad, bowled him. Or has he! They're checking the front foot with the third umpire. It was very full on the stumps. Starc could see off the previous ball that Shahzad's footwork wasn't engaged this early and he got this one to swing in but this time on the middle stump line. Shahzad was late trying to stab it out playing slightly across the line. The front foot is deemed to be just okay in the end. Super start for Starc.. 0/1
1.2 to Hazratullah Zazai, ooooooohhhh big blow to nab the big bashing lefty! Another victim down to no footwork. Cummins angled this across on a good to full length, not nearly full enough to drive especially with his front foot going nowhere towards the ball, Zazai gets a healthy edge easily snapped up by Carey.. 5/2
34.6 to Dawlat Zadran, can't do it twice in a row against Cummins! This time the short ball is directed over leg stump, so Dawlat's short-arm-jab-I-won't-look-at-it pull isn't quite as effective and he feathers an edge through to the keeper. 166/8
38.2 to Mujeeb Ur Rahman, it's all over. This time Mujeeb was backing away but Cummins didn't follow. Kept it full, fast and straight to rattle the stumps. Ends the innings but Afghanistan will take heart from that lower order resistance. 207/10
33.1 to Gulbadin Naib, oh he's thrown it away. Short ball outside off and he wanted to fetch the pull from there to midwicket. Doesn't come off and the ball just zooms up in the air and towards where short leg would have been. Carey runs forward and settles under it. Crucial wicket, at a crucial time. Clever bowling by Stoinis, he bowled it slower which meant Naib couldn't get the timing right.. 160/6
33.5 to Najibullah Zadran, two in two to the short ball. Looked like an off-cutter, and Najibullah is also gone. Was giving himself room to thwack this over extra cover, but only gets a top edge that loops up straight to Carey. Both set batsmen gone within minutes of each other and suddenly, Afghanistan are collapsing. 162/7
13.5 to Hashmatullah Shahidi, beautifully done by Zampa. That is a proper legspinner's dismissal. Tossed up and getting some drift across, the length draws him well forward. The angle takes it away from the left-hander, who ends up feeling for the ball while dragging his foot outside the crease, leaving Carey to collect and whip the bails off.. 56/3
19.2 to Rahmat Shah, he's got him! caught at short cover. Splendid effort by Steven Smith and good bowling by Zampa too. kept this outside off, and drew him out of his crease. Was flatter though so Rahmat couldn't get to the pitch and doesn't time his drive. Smith tumbles forward and takes a smart catch. 75/4
37.3 to Rashid Khan, and he's reviewed after being given out lbw. Went down to sweep this length ball that was spinning into him from off stump, but misses the ball and the umpire's finger went up immediately. Don't think he'll survive this. No edge, and three reds on ball tracking. End of a super little cameo.. 205/9

34.4 to SPD Smith, anti-climax wide outside off and it was there to be square driven, but bounced a bit more than he expected and he gets an upper edge that loops to short third man. Smith falls with just three runs to get for victory. 205/3
16.2 to AJ Finch, Finch has thrown it away. Slower ball but he didn't read that perhaps. Went through with the lofted off-drive but spliced it in the air and it goes straight to deep cover. He was looking good was Finch, but perhaps lost concentration there. 96/1
24.6 to UT Khawaja, gone with the googly! Khawaja looked like he wanted to go with another reverse to a good length ball pitching on middle, then changed his mind while the ball was in the air and awkwardly waved across the line. Plonked on the knee roll, big appeal upheld. Khawaja has a brief chat with Warner before deciding to walk off without using the review. Looked pretty straight. Replays confirm it would have been three reds on balltracking.. 156/2
