Shapoor Zadran302919.6674100
19.4 to JA Morkel, a massive swipe, a vast spiralling top-edge, the captain calls for a steepler, fumbles at the first attempt, but clings onto the rebound. What a showing from Afghanistan!. 137/7
Mirwais Ashraf201809.0050200
Mohammad Nabi403318.2570300
4.2 to GC Smith, Nabi strikes! Good length again, Smith was drawn into the stroke but was onto the ball early, and sent a spiralling chance down to long-off, where the skipper steadied himself to take a fine catch. 45/2
Samiullah Shinwari401403.50120000
Nawroz Mangal302016.6681110
10.3 to AB de Villiers, and that's just reward for Afghanistan! De Villiers attacks once again, but is deceived in the flight, and that's an easy stumping as the third wicket falls. 77/3
Hamid Hassan402135.25112000
12.1 to JH Kallis, down the leg-side, a loose flick, and that's snaffled! Kallis walks, and Afghanistan have their fourth!. 84/4
14.1 to MV Boucher, full length, dead in front of middle, and that's plumb! Simon Taufel raises the finger, and Afghanistan are having a real go here!. 90/5
18.2 to JP Duminy, belted fiercely out to the covers, but Mangal clings onto a blinder, low to his right, to send Duminy on his way! Another wicket falls, and that was timely in the extreme. 133/6

Dale Steyn30622.00160030
0.3 to Noor Ali Zadran, too good from Steyn. Tight line outside off, found a thin edge, and Boucher pouched the chance. 1/1
2.3 to Mohammad Shahzad, cherry-picking from Steyn. Tighter line, a touch less swing, but more bounce, and a simple snick through to the keeper. 5/2
Charl Langeveldt401233.00191030
6.5 to Asghar Afghan, another short ball, a half-formed pull shot, and that's simply snaffled at midwicket. Another step closer to the end of the road. 25/7
13.1 to Mirwais Ashraf, good delivery, tight on off stump, swinging in late to beat the inside-edge, and Ashraf's spirited cameo comes to an end. 65/9
15.6 to Hamid Hassan, and that, alas, is the end of that. Another short ball, another mow, and another top-edge for Kallis to snaffle as he back-pedalled to collect the catch at slip. 80/10
Morne Morkel302046.66101112
3.1 to Nawroz Mangal, regulation dismissal. Tight line, unnerving bounce, a simple edge and Kallis at first slip swallows the catch. That was reminiscent of England at Johannesburg. 7/3
3.4 to Karim Sadiq, short and nasty, Sadiq was backing away but the ball kept coming, and de Villiers at point pocketed a looping gloved catch. 8/4
3.6 to Raees Ahmadzai, another one bites the dust! Short again, an aggressive mow, a steepling top-edge, and a running catch for Boucher behind the stumps. 12/5
5.1 to Mohammad Nabi, that's just brutal. Short again, bangs the splice, loops coolly into the slip cordon, and another mugging of a dismissal. 14/6
