Did not bat:
Fall of wickets: 1-22 (Cameron Green, 2.1 ov), 2-48 (David Warner, 5.2 ov), 3-52 (Steven Smith, 5.6 ov), 4-86 (Mitchell Marsh, 10.4 ov), 5-139 (Marcus Stoinis, 15.3 ov), 6-155 (Matthew Wade, 17.5 ov), 7-156 (Pat Cummins, 18.2 ov), 8-159 (Kane Richardson, 18.6 ov)
2.1 to C Green, slashed to Gulbadin at slip! Excellent catch off a top-edged cut. Back of a length, steepling bounce from a good length. Green looked to slap hard through backward point, throwing his hands, but was slightly late on the shot. Gulbadin did well. It came to him quickly, but he held onto a tough chance, just above head height. 22/1
17.5 to MS Wade, superb yorker fells Wade! Proper stuff from Farooqi, a sandshoe crusher in the old style. Wade was rooted to the spot as the ball ducked in at pace, pitched pretty much on the popping crease and then splattered middle and leg stumps. 155/6
10.4 to MR Marsh, Marsh top-edges one straight up! Safely held by Gurbaz, despite the ball swirling high over his head. Just as it was beginning to look like this was a Swampy day, Marsh heaves at a sweep and saws himself off. Big wicket. 86/4
5.2 to DA Warner, calamity for Warner, bowled by the offcutter attempting a switch hit! Two men out on the leg side, so Warner switched his stance while Naveen was in his delivery stride, looking to access the other side as a right-hander. But Naveen was watching closely and went for the change-up, holding his line and beating Warner's defensive push to crash into what has become his off stump. 48/2
5.6 to SPD Smith, struck on the pad, up goes the finger! Smith opts to review after a discussion with Marsh. Angling in from wide on the crease, Smith was standing tall looking to whip through the leg side with a roll of the wrists but the ball struck him just above the knee roll. No bat involved, and it's smashing into the top of leg stump on ball tracking. Langton Rusere's initial decision is upheld, and Australia have lost three in the powerplay!. 52/3
18.2 to PJ Cummins, holes out to deep point! Superbly held by Rashid on the slide, running in off the rope. In fact, he almost took it above his head while horizontal on the ground! Short with pace off and Naveen picks up a third wicket for the night. 156/7
15.3 to MP Stoinis, drawn out, and sliced to backward point! Rashid of the Strikers strikes. Tossed this one up and lured Stoinis into playing out in front, just enough dip and grip to find the outside edge and then it's a simple catch for Ghani trotting in. 139/5

Fall of wickets: 1-15 (Usman Ghani, 2.3 ov), 2-40 (Rahmanullah Gurbaz, 5.3 ov), 3-99 (Gulbadin Naib, 13.1 ov), 4-99 (Ibrahim Zadran, 13.2 ov), 5-99 (Najibullah Zadran, 13.4 ov), 6-103 (Mohammad Nabi, 14.3 ov), 7-148 (Darwish Rasooli, 19 ov)
2.3 to Usman Ghani, tumbling catch by Cummins off a skier! Typical Hazlewood line and length, Ghani rocked back looking to club over the leg side but miscued it straight up in the air. There was some miscommunication as Cummins and Warner both found themselves underneath it. Warner left it for Cummins, racing in from mid-on, and he did well to cling onto it. 15/1
14.3 to Mohammad Nabi, short ball, paddled to deep square leg! Nabi's hit it too well, just an uppish flick and it sails down the throat of Warner running in. Afghanistan have lost 4 for 4 in nine balls, and their World Cup looks set to end on a whimper. For Australia, there are still a few NRR crumbs on the table. 103/6
5.3 to Rahmanullah Gurbaz, sliced to Warner at mid-off! Richardson strikes with his third ball of the World Cup. Length ball, Gurbaz is cramped for room by a hint of jag in off the seam, and miscues straight to the fielder. 40/2
13.2 to Ibrahim Zadran, top-edged to the man on the 45! Australia get both set batters. Tossed up legbreak and Ibrahim was looking to sweep, only managed to dolly a catch to Marsh at short fine leg. Safely pouched and Australia miay have just broken this chase. 99/4
13.4 to Najibullah Zadran, chipped to long-off, Maxwell and Zampa again! Three in fours balls and the wheels are coming off. Najibullah stomped down the pitch but got nowhere near middling a slog down the ground, and it presents a comfortable catch some way in off the rope. Australia can't still round them up for fewer than 106, can they?!. 99/5
