Dawlat Zadran4146111.50135400
18.3 to Amjad Javed, Dawlat uproots middle stump with an inswinging yorker, and pumps his fist, Javed backs away to leg and heaves in vain, they check for the front-foot no-ball, really tight replays, he seems to have just something behind the line. 149/5
Mohammad Nabi403609.0073200
Hamid Hassan402927.25104010
16.3 to Shaiman Anwar, high full toss, he almost loses balance as he lifts it in front of square, deep square leg has done superbly to grab a high catch on the run to his left, had to time his small jump as it came down. 132/4
19.3 to Mohammad Naveed, that stayed airborne for so long, was a mishit, but kept climbing, Nabi got under it at the edge of the long off boundary, and made no mistake, made a difficult take look simple. 160/6
Mirwais Ashraf402125.25110110
6.5 to Faizan Asif, Afghanistan break through eventually, Mirwais the man, fuller delivery, Faizan has his final heave of the day, leading edge loops tamely to cover. 63/1
8.3 to Mohammad Shahzad, he's holed out to long on, Mirwais the man again, Shahzad has ended up chipping this length ball high in the air, was probably looking for another big hit from back in the crease. 77/2

Amjad Javed3.2037111.1093320
3.6 to Nawroz Mangal, right through him, slower one does it, Mangal foxed into a loose drive, and the ball sneaks in between bat and pad. 43/1

10.2 to Mohammad Shahzad, straight to long off, Shahzad looking for the six again, hasn't quite got under this full one, and the fielder takes the mishit. 99/2
