Naveen-ul-Haq402135.25164010
0.4 to PR Stirling, and he strikes in his first over. Length ball around off, Stirling looks to clear the mid-off but doesn't get the timing right. Nabi pedals back a couple of steps and takes it with reverse cups. 0/1
2.2 to A Balbirnie, off stump takes a walk. Length ball but Balbirnie stays inside the line of the ball and looks to target the cover region. Misses and a cartwheel on display. 12/2
17.4 to BJ McCarthy, slower length ball, looks to go over mid-off but cannot clear Rashid as he ends up slicing it. Naveen gets his third. 123/8
Mujeeb Ur Rahman403218.0094100
13.5 to LJ Tucker, gives himself some room and looks to go over extra cover. Misses and Mujeeb hits. 106/5
Karim Janat201708.5032010
Qais Ahmad402536.2583000
9.1 to KJ O'Brien, and he provides that breakthrough. Maiden T20I wicket for Qais. Tossed up around off, O'Brien looks to go aerial but doesn't get it from the middle. Rashid settles under it at long-off. 74/3
16.5 to HT Tector, fuller around off and middle. Tector goes for a slog sweep but fails to middle. Najib comes in from deep midwicket and takes the catch. 122/6
16.6 to SC Getkate, length ball at the stumps, another slog sweep. Much better connection but it's flat. Najib pedals back a but and takes it reverse cups. Qais finishes with 3 for 25 on debut. 122/7
Rashid Khan402416.0081100
10.4 to GJ Delany, length ball at the stumps, backs away and goes aerial but not from the middle of the bat. Ends up skying it over mid-off. Nabi takes a couple of steps back and pouches it. 80/4

Gareth Delany402125.25140200
8.2 to Rahmanullah Gurbaz, fuller on the stumps, Gurbaz goes for the big hit but fails to middle it and holes out at deep midwicket. He is distraught with his dismissal. 60/1

14.5 to Najibullah Zadran, length ball around off and angling in, Najib goes for a reverse sweep but misses and is hit on the pads. A big appeal and the finger goes up. Simi Singh on a hat-trick. 100/5
Josh Little403318.25103140
19.3 to Asghar Afghan, fuller and wider again, looks to go over cover once again but fails to middle. Balbirnie back-pedals and takes it comfortably this time. But the batsmen have crossed, so it will be Rashid on strike. 130/7
