37.2 to Hashmatullah Shahidi, Cleaned him up with a brute of a delivery! A pitch-perfect yorker! Shimmies down the leg side and exposes his stumps in a bid to carve it up and over cover but it's too full, fast, and smashed into the base of the stumps, zingers are off and the captain has to take the long walk back into the pavilion. Absolutely demolished him with a heat-seeking yorker and you could just sense a wicket was around the corner because Afghanistan's innings have kind of come to a halt and they are itching to tee off.. 173/3
7.6 to Rahmanullah Gurbaz, What have you done, Gurbaz? He has picked out the man at deep backward square. Shortish and into the hips, Gurbaz aims for the pick-up shot but hits it straight to the outfielder. Hazlewood provides Australia with the opening breakthrough. 38/1
45.3 to Mohammad Nabi, Sounds the death rattle! Nice seam up delivery on a slightly shorter length, it jags back just enough to go through his defences and disturb the furniture. Nabi wanted to batter it over midwicket but was deceived by the late inward movement and was a touch early into the hoik. Hazlewood successfully manages to flummox him with an incredible delivery right on target; he seldom misses it. The idea was right from Nabi though, it's time to go for some heavy lifting and he had to take risks and go hard. 233/5
24.4 to Rahmat Shah, Holes out to long-off. Maxwell has a big smile on his face and why not? Rahmat uses his feet, speared in at leg stump from round the wicket. Rahmat does not get enough elevation to clear Hazlewood at long-off. 121/2
42.3 to Azmatullah Omarzai, Couldn't clear Maxwell at long-off as he swallows it down his throat! Gives himself room and launches it downtown but got the toe-end of the bat and didn't have the requisite power and elevation required to clear the ropes; he admonished himself while on his way back to the hut. Crucial breakthrough for Australia.. 210/4

1.2 to TM Head, edged and taken by the keeper. Naveen wheels away in celebration. There are high-fives on the field and off it in the dressing room. Nice and full from Naveen, angling in and then jagging away off the seam outside off. Naveen catches Head on the crease and opens him up. The outside edge is held by Alikhil. Big strike from the returning Naveen. 4/1
5.4 to MR Marsh, nip-backer from Naveen and the finger goes up! This looks adjacent. Marsh seems to agree with me and walks off. Wide on the crease, full and skids back in to beat the inside edge and crash into the back pad. It would've cannoned into middle and leg. Are Afghanistan onto something at the Wankhede?. 43/2
8.1 to DA Warner, After bowling a maiden over to Warner, Azmat castles him. The off stump is knocked out. What a talent! He brings another one back into Warner from round the wicket, but this doesn't go over the stumps. This crashes into the stumps as Azmat goes much fuller with his length. Afghanistan are on top in Mumbai. 49/3
8.2 to JP Inglis, Oh wow, Azmat is on a hat-trick! The inswinger got rid of Warner. This is the outswinger and it kicks up at Inglis. On a length and swerves away outside off, catches the outside edge near the shoulder of the bat. Ibrahim does the rest at first slip. What a game-changing over from Azmat. 49/4
16.4 to MP Stoinis, Tossed up a searing googly that pitched on a perfect length and just spun enough to fox him, he goes for the reverse sweep but can't lay bat on the ball - a bit early into the shot. Vociferous appeal in unison for an lbw and the umpire raises the dreaded finger. Stoinis has reviewed this. Looks like there is no bat and gloves involved but ulta-edge is yet to confirm it. Well, it brushes the front pad and has clearly missed the gloves according to the evidence on the ultraedge. Alright, so it's pitching outside off, impact in line and smashing the middle - Australia lose their sixth wicket. Clearly, Stoinis was struggling against Rashid and didn't back himself to get the better of him. Australia staring into the abyss as wickets continue to tumble. That review had a smaller chance of success than a lottery ticket. 87/6
18.3 to MA Starc, Oh my goodness, no way! How can you catch that? Every ball is an event here. This is mind-boggling reflex action from Ikram who swoops to his left, couldn't hold onto it in the first attempt and the ball popped out of his glove but he didn't give up and went airborne, gobbled it up on the second attempt and Starc cannot believe it! Too good from Afghanistan. Perfect delivery on a length outside off and he nicked it. 91/7
