6.3 to DP Conway, Big, big appeal as Conway is caught in front of the sticks. Umpire Joel Wilson gives it a looong look, but says not out. Afghanistan have taken the review. Must say, this looks very close. Was the quicker fuller-length ball that caught Conway right in the crease. He was looking to defend, but the ball misses his bat and thuds into the pads. And the tracker confirms the ball would have crashed into the top of leg stump. Conway saw the first replay and knew he was a goner. Big wicket for Afghanistan first up.. 30/1
47.1 to GD Phillips, Haha! Can you believe it? That's a harmless delivery, a juicy full-toss sprinkled with jelly beans outside off and he powers this downtown but didn't time it well and man at long-off settles underneath the skier, it's Rashid, and pouches it safely in his hands. Third umpire took a look at it but it's not that high so it will remain OUT. 254/5
47.3 to TWM Latham, Castled! Second wicket in the over for Naveen. What an over it is turning out to be for Afghanistan. Tom Latham tries to scoop this short ball angled into off stump over the keeper's head but can't execute the shot properly and sees his stumps getting rearranged behind. Two set batters back in the hut. 255/6
21.4 to DJ Mitchell, And another! What's happening? New Zealand are collapsing and how. Shorter length on the stumps. Michell goes back, hacks the pull but straight to midwicket, who takes a simple catch. New Zealand have lost three wickets in the last nine balls for one run.. 110/4
20.2 to R Ravindra, Full, straight and through Ravindra! Ugly cross-batted swat that does not come off for the battter. Was a length ball on the stumps. Ravindra gets across looking to whack it away, misses and sees his middle stump flattened.. 109/2
20.6 to WA Young, Stunning take Ikram Alikhil diving to his left. He is confident, but the umpires are checking if the ball carried cleanly. If it has, then that is one heck of a grab from the keeper. Oh, it has carried cleanly. Full-length ball outside off stump. Young looks for a drive on the up, gets a thick inside-edge that flies to Alikhil's left. He anticipates well, moves to his left and plucks out a sensational catch one-handed low to his left. Omarzai has 2 for 1 in his first over.. 110/3

Fall of wickets: 1-27 (Rahmanullah Gurbaz, 5.5 ov), 2-27 (Ibrahim Zadran, 6.1 ov), 3-43 (Hashmatullah Shahidi, 13.6 ov), 4-97 (Azmatullah Omarzai, 25.4 ov), 5-107 (Rahmat Shah, 28.1 ov), 6-125 (Mohammad Nabi, 30.4 ov), 7-134 (Rashid Khan, 33.3 ov), 8-138 (Mujeeb Ur Rahman, 33.6 ov), 9-139 (Naveen-ul-Haq, 34.2 ov), 10-139 (Fazalhaq Farooqi, 34.4 ov) • DRS
6.1 to Ibrahim Zadran, Leading edge straight to cover. Both openers are out, and Zadran will not get his 1000th ODI run today. Length on middle stump. He was looking to turn it to the on-side but closed the bat face early and can only pop the simplest of catches to cover who runs forward and accepts it with glee. Replays show it was sort of wobble seam delivery bowled by Boult, not the conventional seam-up in-dipper. 27/2
25.4 to Azmatullah Omarzai, Boult returns and sends back Omarzai. Just what his captain would have hoped for. Banged in short aiming the body. Omarzai stays leg side of the ball and eyes a pull but is in no position for the shot. Manages only a thin edge through to the keeper Latham. 97/4
5.5 to Rahmanullah Gurbaz, TIMBER! Matt Henry has his revenge and Gurbaz has to take the long walk back. On a length with a hint of seam movement into Gurbaz. He is not as forward as he would like to be and just meekly pushes at it. The ball catches the inside-edge of his bat and makes its way through to the stumps. Matt Henry is pumped and why not. He's just become the leading wicket-taker of the tournament. . 27/1
30.4 to Mohammad Nabi, 100 ODI wickets for Santner and what an absolute ripper to get to the mark! The ball pitched on middle and leg, drifted just enough to beat Nabi's outside edge and thud into the stumps. Nabi can barely believe how he missed that. All guile and deception from Santner.. 125/6
34.2 to Naveen-ul-Haq, Afghanistan lose another as Naveen tries an adventurous reverse sweep and finds Chapman inside the ring who pockets the catch gleefully. Afghanistan are spiralling now and the resistance is melting away quickly like an ice-cream in blistering heat. 139/9
34.4 to Fazalhaq Farooqi, Santner delivers the coup de grace! Tossed up on a length, keeping it nice and straight, getting a hint of turn, he doesn't account for the turn and plays an ugly hoick across the line, gets a thick outside edge and Mitchell gobbles it up sharply at first slip as New Zealand register an emphatic 149-run win over Afghanistan! This has been a disappointing show with the bat while New Zealand bowlers proved too hot to handle and broke partnerships at regular intervals. 139/10
13.6 to Hashmatullah Shahidi, Another frugal over comes to an end and Santner takes an absolute blinder, plucking it out of thin air. That's a well-directed short ball right onto the body and he goes for the pull, looking a bit ungainly, Santner leaps off his feet, keeping his eyes locked on the ball's flight, backpedaling and swooping to his left, falling like a shooting star and taking a one-handed stunner to send Afghanistan's captain back in the hut.. 43/3
33.3 to Rashid Khan, Another one bites the dust. Fuller on rather just outside leg stump. Rashid clears his front leg and was looking to whack it over. Skews it of the outside edge of the bat as the ball spoons straight up. Mitchell sprints back from cover and completes a simple catch. 134/7
33.6 to Mujeeb Ur Rahman, Another breakthrough! Hurls down a nasty bouncer and follows him up as he shimmies down leg, he looks away and goes fishing at it, ball stays up for an eternity high into the night sky and then settles in the cozy, secure, big bucket hands of Will Young at deep fine leg. 138/8
28.1 to Rahmat Shah, Caught and bowled? Latham and Ravindra are confident. But the umpire's want to check if that is a bump ball. This is a close one. Was tossed up and full on off. He jams it out but only as far as Ravindra. The third umpire deems the ball hit the ground first, then Rahmat's bat before going to Ravindra. There were multiple replays, split-screens required before umpire Illingworth reached his decision. 107/5
