TOTAL20 Ov (RR: 7.40)148/6
Fall of wickets: 1-118 (Rahmanullah Gurbaz, 15.5 ov), 2-121 (Azmatullah Omarzai, 16.3 ov), 3-122 (Ibrahim Zadran, 16.6 ov), 4-126 (Rashid Khan, 17.6 ov), 5-141 (Karim Janat, 19.1 ov), 6-141 (Gulbadin Naib, 19.2 ov) • DRS
17.6 to Rashid Khan, six? No, few metres short! Fullish ball outside off. Rashid comes down the track and tries to helicopter a shot over long on. But the pace is off, and the timing is off too. Tim David at long on does the rest. 126/4
19.1 to Karim Janat, grabbed by David running in from long on! Cummins disguises an off-pace ball, landing it full just outside off. Janat ends up dragging a shot to wide long on where David ran in to take a reverse-cup grab. 141/5
19.2 to Gulbadin Naib, another hat-trick for Cummins! That's two hat-tricks in two back-to-back games and on both occasions its across two different overs! Cummins knows its a hat-trick, he's well aware, but the others weren't quite. This was a change-up length ball outside off and Naib can only drag his aggressive shot to the sweeper fielder on the leg side. 141/6
16.3 to Azmatullah Omarzai, one brings two! Length ball on middle, and it skids through. Omarzai backs away to play a leg-side swipe, but he's been beaten by Zampa's guile. Leg-stump rattled. 121/2
16.6 to Ibrahim Zadran, bouncer from the spinner! And Zadran gets a top-edge. Intentional or not, Zampa bowls a 98kph bouncer on an off-stump line. Gets big on the surprised batter and his attempt at a pull only gets the bat's shoulder. Short third gets under it. 122/3
15.5 to Rahmanullah Gurbaz, Stoinis with a send-off! Length ball, angling into Gurbaz, and he charges down the track before clocking a mistimed shot to the leg side. Warner at deep square leg runs in, and ensures this one sticks. Partnership broken via this slower ball. 118/1

TOTAL19.2 Ov (RR: 6.56)127
Fall of wickets: 1-0 (Travis Head, 0.3 ov), 2-16 (Mitchell Marsh, 2.3 ov), 3-32 (David Warner, 5.1 ov), 4-71 (Marcus Stoinis, 10.3 ov), 5-85 (Tim David, 12.2 ov), 6-106 (Glenn Maxwell, 14.4 ov), 7-108 (Matthew Wade, 15.1 ov), 8-111 (Pat Cummins, 16.3 ov), 9-113 (Ashton Agar, 17.2 ov), 10-127 (Adam Zampa, 19.2 ov) • DRS
0.3 to TM Head, What a start for the Afghans! Head is gone! Naveen has absolutely arrowed in and clattered into middle stump here. What a peach. Outswinger, pitching on a good length and straightening on middle - maybe even going away a touch. Head has a big swing but gets nowhere near it. 0/1
2.3 to MR Marsh, Big, big wicket! Marsh was looking good but he's gone now! Naveen goes wide of the crease and angles this in full on off. Marsh can't help but go for the drive, but this one is a slower one. Marsh is way to early on the shot and can only hit this one straight up in the air. Nabi snaffles it with glee at mid-off. 16/2
17.2 to AC Agar, and now superman Naib stuns in the field! Slot ball just outside off and Agar hammers an important cover drive with a lot of power, but Gulbadin inside the circle dives to his left and takes a low catch on his non-preferred hand! Flexes after that, showing his biceps off. 113/9
19.2 to A Zampa, Afghanistan win! Slower ball, good length delivery around off, and Zampa's swipe across the line finds the man at long-on! Majestic scenes.. 127/10
5.1 to DA Warner, and he strikes straight away! Warner looks to go after him from the off, trying to sweep this from outside off. But he's always reaching for it and can only end up top edging this straight to the man at short fine. 32/3
15.1 to MS Wade, my oh my! Low, sliding catch from short fine leg but the umpire agrees its a clean catch! Rashid starts his last over by bowling a full ball outside leg stump. The legbreak takes it further away from him, and the sweep is gloved to short fine leg.. 108/7
10.3 to MP Stoinis, top edge and Gurbaz calls for it with two more fielders congregating! Naib brings out his guns to celebrate and the short ball does the trick against Stoinis. Extra bounce, got big on Stoinis, and all it needed thereafter was the three Afghanistan fielders not colliding behind the batter. 71/4
12.2 to TH David, trapped him in front? Umpire Ahsan Raza raises his finger late. David reviews after a chat. This was a back of a length ball on off that jagged into his pads while also staying low. David missed his flick, and he was hit on the knee-roll. No bat involved... and it's clipping the outside of leg stump! The decision says and Australia are 85/5. 85/5
14.4 to GJ Maxwell, BIG BIG WICKET! Noor Ahmad may not have bowled much, but he may have taken the most important catch of his life! Maxwell slices at this length ball outside off, and Noor at backward point dives diagonally forward to take a dipping catch!. 106/6
16.3 to PJ Cummins, slower ball deceives Cummins, that's Naib's four! Full ball on off and this doesn't bunce much. Cummins tries to play across the line but misses. He's bowled and Naib is off in celebration. However he then takes a tumble, has he hurt himself in glee?. 111/8
