Fall of wickets: 1-21 (Chris Gayle, 5.3 ov), 2-109 (Evin Lewis, 24.5 ov), 3-174 (Shimron Hetmyer, 34.5 ov), 4-192 (Shai Hope, 37.4 ov), 5-297 (Nicholas Pooran, 49.1 ov), 6-297 (Jason Holder, 49.2 ov)
5.3 to CH Gayle, got him! Gayle has lost patience and his wicket in the process. Looked to back away to open up the off-side and swing big, but Dawlat saw him do that and fired this wider. Gayle looked to reach out to carve it away but ends up nicking it behind. Surely the last time we've seen Gayle at the 50-over World Cup.. 21/1
34.5 to SO Hetmyer, TERRIFIC TAKE AT MIDWICKET! Zadran bangs one in the centre of the pitch, and Hetmyer takes up the invitation to go for a full-blooded pull, but cannot place it wide enough of substitute Noor Ali Zadran, who dives away to his right and takes a specy!. 174/3
49.2 to JO Holder, heaved across the line and it's an easy catch to the man coming in from deep square. Mistimed this, also didn't pick the pace on this slower ball.. 297/6
37.4 to SD Hope, HOLES OUT TO DEEP MIDWICKET! Nabi just gets it to hang in the air a bit, and Hope tries to go for the slog sweep but doesn't time it well enough to clear the deep midwicket fence. A grateful Rashid Khan has just take a couple of steps forward to complete the catch. Two set batsmen have given their wicket away in succession for West Indies, as Afghanistan chip away with wickets. 192/4
24.5 to E Lewis, guess what? Rashid's got Lewis with a buffet ball. Absolutely short, begging to be smacked. Lewis rocked back to open up the leg side and pulled, but the timing was off. Got it off the toe end and the long-on fielder ran in to take an excellent catch. It's that man Nabi, who at 34 is still as fast as they come in the outfield. Excellent anticipation, he was on the move as the ball lodged in his hands but had complete control.. 109/2

TOTAL50 Ov (RR: 5.76, 220 Mins)288
Fall of wickets: 1-5 (Gulbadin Naib, 1.3 ov), 2-138 (Rahmat Shah, 26.2 ov), 3-189 (Ikram Alikhil, 35.3 ov), 4-194 (Najibullah Zadran, 35.5 ov), 5-201 (Mohammad Nabi, 37.4 ov), 6-227 (Samiullah Shinwari, 41.4 ov), 7-244 (Asghar Afghan, 44.2 ov), 8-255 (Dawlat Zadran, 44.6 ov), 9-260 (Rashid Khan, 46.3 ov), 10-288 (Sayed Shirzad, 49.6 ov)
1.3 to Gulbadin Naib, GONE THIS TIME! A bit fuller, and wider, and Naib goes for the slog again, and the bat skews in his hand and carries towards the man at square leg. No mistake from Lewis, and Afghanistan are rocked early in a massive chase. 5/1
37.4 to Mohammad Nabi, SLOWER, WIDER DOES THE TRICK! Nabi is sucked into going for a big shot, but slices it away towards deep point. Just got no distance, and Fabian Allen takes a comfortable catch, and Afghanistan's hopes sink further. 201/5
41.4 to Samiullah Shinwari, slower ball, works again! Good catch too from Hetmyer running in from deep midwicket. Shinwari tries to go big again, but the change in pace foxes him. He has to fetch this from outside off, and can only skew it towards deep midwicket. He runs in about 10-12 yards, and takes this low in front of himself. 227/6
49.6 to Sayed Shirzad, slashed over the infield, or so it seemed until Allen ran backwards from cover and put his left-hand out and completed a stunning catch. West Indies win. 288/10
26.2 to Rahmat Shah, GONE! Slower ball from wide of the crease, and outside off, and Rahmat cannot keep a drive down. Chris Gayle gets down and holds it low in front of himself. Gayly and Brathwaite celebrate with some well-synchronized push-ups. Is that the twist West Indies needed?. 138/2
44.2 to Asghar Afghan, good catch at long off by Holder! Thrown wide and full again, and Afghan shimmies across to get to that - it would have been a wide if he had missed - and he looked to go inside out. Toe-ends it down towards long off, and West Indies do well to keep big Jason Holder there for this steepling catch. Perfectly balanced, even though he lost his shades. 244/7
44.6 to Dawlat Zadran, this has been hit down to long-on where Cottrell moves to his right and completes a tough catch on the move. Afghanistan collapsing quickly in search of the big hits.. 255/8
46.3 to Rashid Khan, strong bottom-handed hit that seemed as if it'd clear the fence, but Holder times his jump to perfection as he pulls off another wonderful catch. 260/9
35.3 to Ikram Alikhil, looks for the sweep, and given out leg before. He has chosen to review this! It was full, but could have been darting down the leg side, unless it stays with umpire's call. There seems to be no inside edge. Perhaps a touch too full to have employed the sweep. It's three-reds, and that's the end of Ikram Alikhil! He's played his hand in bringing Afghanistan close, but this was a bad time to have gotten out, and to the part-timer. But what a moment for Chris Gayle, in what should be his last World Cup innings. A smart catch, and now getting a teenager on the verge of a famous century!. 189/3
