Fall of wickets: 1-54 (Mohammad Shahzad, 5.5 ov), 2-82 (Hazratullah Zazai, 9.5 ov), 3-169 (Rahmanullah Gurbaz, 18.3 ov), 4-190 (Najibullah Zadran, 19.6 ov)
5.5 to Mohammad Shahzad, holes out to deep midwicket. it's the long boundary and Shahzad can't clear it. Moved and tried to whip this full ball much like he had done earlier in the innings, but gets it near the end of the bat and it travels only as far as the fielder, who takes a comfortable catch. Much needed breakthrough for Scotland. 54/1
19.6 to Najibullah Zadran, holes out to deep midwicket on the last ball. Nearly in the block hole on leg, he middles the powerful flick but it's gone straight to the fielder. 190/4
18.3 to Rahmanullah Gurbaz, toe-edge goes high and cover runs across to mid-off to finally break the stand. Attempted yorker is a low full toss, Gurbaz swings down the ground but doesn't middle it, and skies it on the off side for an easy catch. 169/3
9.5 to Hazratullah Zazai, castled him with a quicker one. That was at 107 kph and bowled almost like a seamer. Bowls it yorker length into him, he's standing at a leg stump guard, gets an inside edge that clatters into stumps.. 82/2

Fall of wickets: 1-28 (Kyle Coetzer, 3.2 ov), 2-28 (Calum MacLeod, 3.3 ov), 3-28 (Richie Berrington, 3.6 ov), 4-30 (Matthew Cross, 4.3 ov), 5-36 (George Munsey, 5.3 ov), 6-38 (Michael Leask, 6.3 ov), 7-45 (Mark Watt, 7.5 ov), 8-53 (Chris Greaves, 8.5 ov), 9-60 (Josh Davey, 10.1 ov), 10-60 (Brad Wheal, 10.2 ov)
3.2 to KJ Coetzer, gone through him. Full ball tailing in late, Coetzer looking to drive from the crease plays away from body and the ball zips in through that gap between bat and pad/body. Into the stumps.. 28/1
3.3 to CS MacLeod, Mujeeb has got two in two, trapping MacLeod in front.. Scotland review. Macleod was only half forward to that, playing all around it, off break that spun in, beat his bat and struck him on the knee roll. No bat invovled. And it's umpire's call on clipping leg-stump so that's a massive strike first up.. 28/2
3.6 to RD Berrington, Mujeeb has three in the over, and what a three! Scotland reviewing the lbw again. This one might just be missing leg-stump. Mujeeb making the ball do pretty much what he wants, spinning this one into the right-hander again, and it's clipping leg stump so Scotland lose another to umpire's call. Mujeeb has busted this game through and through.. 28/3
5.3 to HG Munsey, off stump clattered. On a long enough timeline against Mujeeb, every batter's survival rate drops to zero. Munsey was making room to crash this through off, beaten by the quickness off the pitch and ball meets stump.. 36/5
7.5 to MRJ Watt, he's got a fifer has Mujeeb. And even that seems too few. Scotland haven't read him at all, and he's been threatening the stumps almost every ball. If you don't read those, the stumps are always in danger. This was another quick one on a length outside off and spinning into the left-hander.. 45/7
4.3 to MH Cross, Shahzad flies to his right and grabs it. Scotland's chase is going pear-shaped in the powerplay itself. Naveen bowled this from a bit wide, angling into the batter, pitches on off and straightens, gets the edge off the poke. Shahzad goes horizontal to his right and plucks it out. Everything that can go right for Afghanistan, going right.. 30/4
6.3 to MA Leask, given out lbw again and they've taken the review again. But I think this is crashing into the stumps. Another googly, on that perfect length that is drawing the batsman forward but not to the pitch of the ball, spins past the bat that's thrust out and hits him flush on the pad. And the impact might have been the only thing that saved him but it's umpire's call on impact and the ball is headed to the middle of middle stump. Scotland not just unravelling, but they've already unravelled.. 38/6
8.5 to CN Greaves, no escaping that one. This time the sweep that doesn't connect with the ball is played in front of the stumps, and the googly strikes him right in front. No point reviewing that I think. And Greaves doesn't.. 53/8
10.1 to JH Davey, hits him right in front past the reverse swat, it's given out lbw but Scotland review it. The ball turns in, goes past the bat to hit him on the thigh right in front of middle, and ball-tracking says it's hitting leg. No edge too. 60/9
10.2 to BTJ Wheal, and he makes it four! Wraps things up with a googly that turns in from just outside off and sneaks through the gate of Wheal's defences. 60/10
