Fall of wickets: 1-7 (Hazratullah Zazai, 1.3 ov), 2-13 (Mohammad Shahzad, 2.4 ov), 3-33 (Asghar Afghan, 4.3 ov), 4-39 (Rahmanullah Gurbaz, 5.1 ov), 5-64 (Karim Janat, 9.1 ov), 6-76 (Najibullah Zadran, 12.5 ov)
2.4 to Mohammad Shahzad, scooped straight to mid-on! If Shaheen doesn't get you in his first, he'll get you in his second!. That was a tame, tame dismissal. He placed it straight into mid-on's hands, and Pakistan are off to the perfect start. 13/2
1.3 to Hazratullah Zazai, miscued - and it's Haris Rauf who takes the catch! Zazai falls early; it's that drift away from the left-hander that seals his fate. The ball scooped up past short third, and Haris Rauf - what a tournament he's having - takes a smart diving catch. 7/1
9.1 to Karim Janat, straight to Fakhar Zaman in the deep!. Fetched it from wide outside off stump to swipe it over long-on, but picked out Fakhar Zaman perfectly. The easiest catch you could hope for on the boundary brings Pakistan their fifth wicket. 64/5
4.3 to Asghar Afghan, practice catch for Haris Rauf, and Afghan falls!. Seemed to rush onto the batsman who was so late on it he just scooped it back tamely into the ether of Haris Rauf's run-up, who had time to regain his balance and take the simplest of catches. 33/3
5.1 to Rahmanullah Gurbaz, The mad energy and vibe to this game continues. Gurbaz slashed Hasan Ali's first ball high to mid-on, for no apparent reason than a rush of blood, and Babar Azam had the easiest of catches to take. Afghanistan lose their fourth; they're crumbling here. 39/4
12.5 to Najibullah Zadran, googly again, but this time pitched to perfection! The line was way better here, on off/fourth stump, and gets Najibullah prodding forward on the length too. Thin edge behind. Afghanistan slip further.. 76/6

Fall of wickets: 1-12 (Mohammad Rizwan, 2.3 ov), 2-75 (Fakhar Zaman, 11.1 ov), 3-97 (Mohammad Hafeez, 14.1 ov), 4-122 (Babar Azam, 16.6 ov), 5-124 (Shoaib Malik, 17.5 ov)
2.3 to Mohammad Rizwan, he's holed out to Naveen-ul-Haq at square leg! Rizwan falls early and Afghanistan explode with joy! That fielder was stationed specifically for that swipe by the Pakistan wicketkeeper, and the plan comes off!. 12/1
11.1 to Fakhar Zaman, huge shout! This time it looks stone dead! Fakhar misses a sweep and given lbw. He's gone for the review! He is hit on the back thigh in front of middle stump missing a sweep to a full ball but was crouched so low. Will be hard to see this being overturned. Ball-tracking shows three reds lighting up. Pakistan lose a review. It was smashing leg stump below the bails.. 75/2
17.5 to Shoaib Malik, edge behind chasing a wide ball! Naveen goes for the wide yorker and Shoaib's footwork lets him down. Reaches out with his arms for this and no feet, toe edge behind and Shahzad goes bonkers after clasping on.. 124/5
14.1 to Mohammad Hafeez, Gulbadin takes the catch and flexes his bodybuilding muscles for the fans behind him at long-on. Tosses this up with a lot of air for Rashid's standards, Hafeez picked the right ball to sweep with the turn coming in on a googly, but the extra bounce does him in as it pops up skewed off a top edge to Gulbadin who settles under this 10 yards inside the rope. That's Rashid Khan's 100th T20I wicket, the fastest to do it. . 97/3
16.6 to Babar Azam, googly again finally does in Babar! The dropped chance only costs one run. Bizarre shot from Babar considering they'd already gotten double-digit runs in the over, but rather than see off Rashid's final ball, got greedy and a hubristic heave for midwicket winds up with his leg stump knocked back as Rashid's trademark googly gives him T20I wicket #101.. 122/4
