Fall of wickets: 1-103 (Ibrahim Zadran, 14.3 ov), 2-127 (Azmatullah Omarzai, 16.6 ov), 3-136 (Mohammad Nabi, 17.4 ov), 4-156 (Rashid Khan, 19.1 ov), 5-156 (Rahmanullah Gurbaz, 19.2 ov), 6-158 (Gulbadin Naib, 19.5 ov) • DRS
19.2 to Rahmanullah Gurbaz, Gurbaz gets cleaned up by Boult! Sizzling yorker on off stump that Gurbaz does not have a riposte for. He is late in picking it and the ball whistles past his bat before it comes down. Looks on in disbelief at what Boult has produced but he is not the first (or the last) to be castled by Boult. A passage of play Afghanistan might not look back at too fondly, although this innings was of the highest order!. 156/5
19.5 to Gulbadin Naib, holes out to deep mid wicket! Banged into the track outside off. Naib has a massive mow across the line but has to fight the angle from over the wicket. Cannot control the pull and he skews it towards Phillips at deep mid wicket, who gobbles up the chance!. 158/6
14.3 to Ibrahim Zadran, chops on the very next ball! NZ finally have a wicket! Dug in shorter and this is just a hint outside off. Ibrahim backs away, trying to muscle it over extra cover. Swishes at it too early, though, and the ball skews off the bottom edge into leg stump. Ibrahim throws his head back in disappointment. No real celebration from NZ, but they have something to show for their toil tonight!. 103/1
16.6 to Azmatullah Omarzai, Henry gets rid of Omarzai! Seems like a slower ball, bowled at around 127kph. Pitches on a full length on middle and off, tempting Omarzai to go inside out. The bat face, though, opens upon contact and he cannot generate the power he is after. Slices it towards deep cover point, where Ferguson holds on. A useful cameo, though, and it has given Afghanistan the continuity they needed after that opening stand!. 127/2
17.4 to Mohammad Nabi, stop the press, New Zealand have taken two catches in two overs! Another attempted yorker that ends up as a full toss just outside off. Nabi tries to turn it to leg but closes his bat face too early. Spoons up off the leading edge and Williamson does the rest at mid off. Very soft dismissal!. 136/3

0.1 to FH Allen, leg stump out of the ground! A dream start for Farooqi! Full on middle stump and this curves into Allen late. Without any footwork, he looks to deposit this into the ocean and plays down the wrong line completely. The ball breezes past the bat and leg stump flies away. Farooqi is pumped, Afghanistan are pumped; NZ a little shell-shocked!. 0/1
2.4 to DP Conway, soft dismissal! Farooqi has two! Full outside off and this seems to stick in the surface ever so slightly. Conway pokes at it but the lack of pace means he cannot keep it down. Chips it straight to short extra cover, and NZ are two down inside three overs!. 18/2
4.2 to DJ Mitchell, what a beauty, and Mitchell has feathered it through to Gurbaz! Back of a length on middle and off. Seems destined to angle in from around the wicket but the ball holds its line after pitching. Mitchell has no option but to play at it and all he manages is a faint tickle through to the keeper. NZ are in all sorts of trouble now!. 28/3
15.2 to MJ Henry, Chennai, Delhi, Nagpur, Pune and now Guyana - the latest addition to Afghanistan's greatest World Cup hits collection! A truly professional performance to grab this group by the scruff of its neck and tell the rest of the world they are here to dominate! Off-pace and dug into the track outside off. Henry swings like a rusty gate again and gets a top edge. Fine leg circles under it and does the rest. Afghanistan are all smiles, and they deserve every bit of this win. They have thoroughly outplayed New Zealand and Farooqi, who set the ball rolling in the powerplay, fittingly finishes it off!. 75/10
9.4 to GD Phillips, catch it, Gurbaz says, and Rashid catches it at long on! Wicket no.7 goes down! Floated up full just outside off. Phillips' eyes light up and he looks to smash it downtown. He is beaten in the flight, though, and has to reach out in front of his body, meaning that he clinks it off the toe-end. Rashid settles himself right on the fence and completes the catch!. 53/7
11.6 to MJ Santner, castled! Full on middle and off. Does not spin and comes in with the angle. Santner goes fencing at it without any real footwork and just misses it. The ball flicks the pad and then thunders into the stumps. NZ sink further, and are on the brink now!. 59/8
6.1 to KS Williamson, straight to slip! Rashid gets his opposite number, and NZ are wilting! Fizzed through on a length outside off. Williamson waits for it and then opens his bat face. Not sure that shot was on with a slip in place and Williamson ends up guiding it to Naib. A sharp catch low to his left, and Afghanistan are all over NZ like a rash in Guyana!. 33/4
8.1 to MS Chapman, Middle stump has been flattened, and Rashid wheels away in celebration! Shortish on middle and leg, and this skids off the surface. Keeps a little low too and Chapman, trying to dump it over cow corner, only connects with fresh air. Hears the death rattle soon after, and Afghanistan are delighted. NZ, devastated!. 43/5
8.2 to MG Bracewell, two in two for Rashid, and NZ are falling like a pack of cards! Back of a length on middle and off. Does not spin back in and goes on with the arm. Might have either been a googly or a slider. Bracewell, because he has not read it off the hand, stays back. Cannot bring his bat down in time and gets pinned on the back leg. The finger goes up but Bracewell wants to have another look. More in hope than anticipation, you'd reckon. No bat involved, and Ball Tracking returns with three reds. NZ, well, nothing is going right for them!. 43/6
12.6 to LH Ferguson, simple catch for Rashid, and the Afghanistan skipper finishes with a four-for! Tossed up devilishly on a length just outside off. Ferguson plants his front foot and plonks his bat in front of his pad. The ball hits his willow and then pops up for the easiest return catch Rashid will ever take! Afghanistan just one wicket away from an astonishing victory!. 63/9
