11.1 to Noor Ali Zadran, gobbled up down the leg side! Ferguson banged it in on the hips, Noor Ali tried to do a penguin shuffle across to feather this behind square but only manages a slight tickle and Latham with the grace of a pelican takes it with ease at neck height. Kiwis on top now.. 66/2
33.4 to Rashid Khan, brutal! Ferguson with a skiddy ball short of a length that has a touch of extra bounce at 138 kph/86 mph. Rashid came a step forward to defend but it climbs into his helmet and ricochets down onto the stumps. Kane Williamson, his captain at Sunrisers, comes over to put his arm around Rashid and check on him as the champion leggie is shaken up. Physio is out on field to escort him off as his eyes start bulging.. 131/8
35.4 to Aftab Alam, Aftab's adventurous stay ends. Identical shot to two balls earlier backing away to a short ball. That angle was going to keep producing top edges and sure enough this one is skied over the wicketkeeper towards third man. Latham tracks back to the edge of the ring calling off third man running in from the rope and takes a very sharp catch over the shoulder, 7.5/10 on degree of difficulty particularly with the ball tailing away. He's got five takes in the innings, one away from tying the ODI record.. 147/9
41.1 to Hashmatullah Shahidi, what a catch! This was a leading edge that for the most part seemed as if it'd fall short of third man. But the anticipation is top notch from Henry. Comes haring in, gets the angle right as he runs in a few steps and then dives forward and completed the catch.. 172/10
James Neesham1013153.10454020
10.5 to Hazratullah Zazai, finally gets him after surviving two lives on 16 & 18! Zazai loves clearing the front leg to go over the on-side and Neesham wisely teases him dragging this line wider outside off stump, the front leg still flies out and the arms try to flay this over cover. The ball flies in the air toward the point sweeper Munro, who charges in 12 yards and takes this at chest height while crouching down. Zazai taps his helmet with the bat. Soaring like an eagle at the start, his wings have been clipped by Neesham.. 66/1
12.3 to Rahmat Shah, leading edge flies to Guptill at backward point! Not the best ball, pitching on middle and angling onto leg stump on a fullish length, Rahmat wanted to flick this through square leg but he's out in front of it as it holds up a touch. The ball flies toward Guptill, who leans over to his left taking the catch falling over with a mini swan dive. Four-ball duck for Rahmat.. 66/3
14.1 to Gulbadin Naib, short outside off, Gulbadin goes to cut and given out! He reviews straight away. Would've been called a wide had he left it alone. Really had to reach out for it. But Ultraedge shows a spike as it passes the bat. Poor review from the captain. After flying high in the Powerplay, Afghanistan now doing a falcon-dive hurtling back to earth.. 70/4
23.3 to Mohammad Nabi, what a poor stroke from an experienced campaigner. Nothing shot, hangs his bat out, presumably to late cut, but this one bounces a touch more than Nabi expects, gets a thin edge and Latham does the rest. Latham now has four.. 105/5
23.6 to Najibullah Zadran, maiden five-for for Neesh! Is he allowed to tweet a reaction to that? Oh, well. This is a corker of a delivery. Slants one on a length. climbs on Najibullah who is squared up by the late deviation and then thin edge, right off the shoulder of the bat, is gleefully accepted by Latham.. 109/6
Colin de Grandhomme411413.50162000
32.4 to Ikram Alikhil, sucker ball claims Alikhil at backward point! Attempted wide yorker outside off just pitches before Alikhil drives hard, but Alikhil's back knee dips instead of getting on top of the ball to be able to drive this into the ground. Instead he slices under it and it flutters like a peaceful dove toward Guptill at backward point, taken on his haunches at chest height with fingers pointed to the sky.. 130/7

Aftab Alam8.104535.51246010
0.1 to MJ Guptill, dream start! This is a skiddy short of length ball that comes back in sharply to surprise Guptill who hops back to defend, but only manages an inside edge onto the thigh pad as it lobs to point. Aftab Alam, you beauty.. 0/1
7.5 to C Munro, looks to upper cut, doesn't quit get the timing right and he hits it straight down the throat of third man. If there was a wicket well deserved, it was this. Superb from Aftab.. 41/2
25.4 to LRPL Taylor, that's the end of that! Taylor has effectively missed a full toss. This one was dipping from wide of the crease, he looked to work this across the line but missed it completely. The ball hit the base of off-stump.. 130/3
