3.1 to Mohammad Shahzad, another flat bat shot but it results in his dismissal this time, he bangs it in short outside the off stump and he tries to pull it off the front foot but the ball hurries on to him and he slaps the ball and it carries to third man.. 27/1
17.2 to Samiullah Shinwari, another wicket for Hong Kong, shorter length on off stump, he attempts to pull it over midwicket but doesnt get enough bat on it nor does he time it well, finds long-on well inside the boundary. 132/5
19.5 to Mohammad Nabi, great catch again, full on middle, Nabi just about gets under it and swats it to long-on where Chapman runs around and takes an excellent diving catch. 161/6
Nadeem Ahmed402516.2591100
14.3 to Nawroz Mangal, out this time, he goes straighter and gives it a bit more air, and he lofts it down the ground but straight to long-off. Another big wicket for Hong Kong. 113/3
Irfan Ahmed3033111.0051300
16.3 to Najibullah Zadran, third time unlucky, ends up with a full ball on middle, which is smashed in the air to midwicket but a great catch by Kinchit on the midwicket boundary as he runs round from square leg and gets both hands on it. Najibullah thought he had enough on that. 122/4
Aizaz Khan403017.5095000
11.1 to Asghar Afghan, got him this time. Tries to slog it once more over deep midwicket, but it is straight and full and beats the heave.. 85/2

Dawlat Zadran403007.50113101
Shapoor Zadran403127.75112210
12.3 to Nizakat Khan, gone this time! He sticks with the full length and the wide line outside off, Nizakat gives himself room again but connects this time with his cut. However, it flies off the outside half to third man. Good running catch from Mangal, too.. 79/2
14.5 to JJ Atkinson, straight to long-off. Huge wicket. Bowls it outside off at a full length, Atkinson connects but doesn't time it well enough and picks out long-off to perfection.. 98/3
Mirwais Ashraf402215.50100100
4.3 to Irfan Ahmed, the change in pace works, a lot slower and at a fuller length, Irfan aims to clear the infield but hits it down the throat of mid-on. No timing on that stroke. 28/1
Sharafuddin Ashraf402807.00102110
Mohammad Nabi4042110.5073210
19.1 to MS Chapman, full and darted on leg, and Chapman picks it again and hits it well too, but deep midwicket is lurking and takes a good high-pressure catch. Match-changing ball that. 146/4
