Fall of wickets: 1-42 (Rahmanullah Gurbaz, 4.2 ov), 2-42 (Hazratullah Zazai, 4.3 ov), 3-62 (Asghar Afghan, 8.4 ov), 4-77 (Karim Janat, 10.4 ov), 5-88 (Ibrahim Zadran, 12.3 ov), 6-97 (Mohammad Nabi, 14.1 ov), 7-141 (Gulbadin Naib, 19.3 ov)
8.4 to Asghar Afghan, Asghar is not going to be happy looking at that replay. Short ball, went past him down the legside at chest height, he was trying to hit it too hard while moving across to pull, ends up getting a feather and Ramdhin takes an excellent catch, diving to his left. That ball could have been put away for four, but the accumulated dot balls led to poor execution. 62/3
10.4 to Karim Janat, rapped on the pads, feet rooted to the crease and the umpire upholds his appeal. That came in very sharply off a length and Janat's shot selection was completely awry looking to push it but with his eight back when he should have been forward, but he's been a bit unlucky here because it looks like that would have gone down leg. Height also a possible issue.. 77/4
4.2 to Rahmanullah Gurbaz, another full-blooded shot, but this time Williams has struck! Fuller from Williams, but a change of pace too, and Gurbaz looks to go towards long on again. Skews the shot towards deep mid-wicket, and it's Pollard who tracks back and gets under it. It went miles in the air, and Pollard did well to hold on after an initial juggle. 42/1
4.3 to Hazratullah Zazai, two in two! Slower ball again from Williams, and tossed up a bit wider this time for Zazai, and he checks an intended drive, and it goes straight towards cover-point. 42/2
19.3 to Gulbadin Naib, tries to do too much while the bowler keeps it simple and wins the contest. Gulbadin well across to try and paddle it fine, but Williams kept it full and cutting in. Gulbadin has one leg on the tramline and one in line with the stumps trying to pull off the shot, he misses and the leg in line with the stumps is hit. 141/7
12.3 to Ibrahim Zadran, excellent catch by Pollard at short cover. Another good change of pace by Keemo, and he has Ibrahim playing the cover drive too early. Ends up popping it in the air and Pollard, injured finger and all, takes a good low catch in front of him, tumbling forward.. 88/5
14.1 to Mohammad Nabi, spoons a catch to mid-off. You've to create all the pace by yourself on this surface and the West Indians have been bowling cleverly, with changes of pace. This one sticks in the pitch on a length, Nabi wanted to go big, but ends up hitting it too early, gets more height than distance - and not even that much height - for an easy catch.. 97/6

Did not bat:
Fall of wickets: 1-17 (Brandon King, 3.5 ov), 2-34 (Shimron Hetmyer, 7.2 ov), 3-45 (Evin Lewis, 9.4 ov), 4-45 (Sherfane Rutherford, 9.6 ov), 5-54 (Kieron Pollard, 11.5 ov), 6-69 (Jason Holder, 14.1 ov), 7-89 (Keemo Paul, 17.2 ov), 8-105 (Hayden Walsh, 19.5 ov)
3.5 to BA King, knocked him over. Another off-cutter, this one is bowled on a tighter line and a fuller length. King had no clue about that, was heaving across the line way too early. He misses, the bowler hits flush on middle stump.. 17/1
7.2 to SO Hetmyer, full ball, and given out leg-before! Did that pitch within the leg-stump line? It's a tricky one, but that's a good breakthrough for Afghanistan. Fuller, and a touch quicker, and Hetmyer justifiably shuffles across to try and flick this away. Beaten for pace, but at first glance, it did seem that this ball had pitched outside leg. To be fair, Janat himself had got a dodgy decision against Holder when he was batting, so this almost evens it out. 34/2
9.4 to E Lewis, short, and he looks to swing this across the line, and holes out to long on! Might have been a bit slower again, but it was a poor shot -- just had no shape as he looked to swat this away. Top edge, and it flew quite flat towards Ibrahim Zadran, who came in a few steps and took the catch comfortably. 45/3
9.6 to SE Rutherford, another wicket for Janat! That's a ball that any fast bowler would have been proud off. Angles across him, full, and just a hint of movement off the seam. The line and length were such that Rutherford was sucked into poking at it. A healthy edge through to the keeper, as Karim Janat lets out a scream in delight. This is an inspired selection by Afghanistan today!. 45/4
11.5 to KA Pollard, what a wicket! Janat in seventh heaven, as the finger goes up for a leg-before against Kieron Pollard. Fast ball, delivered from wide of the crease, but the line was spot-on, jagging back at Pollard, and giving him very little wriggle-room to get a shot going. The West Indies captain ended up playing from the crease, and the umpire has little hesitation in sending him on his way. 54/5
17.2 to KMA Paul, five for Janat! Another full ball, just outside off, and Paul goes for an almight heave. Off the inside edge, and on to the base of off-stump. Janat is pumped, as he should be. It's been a fine team effort, but he is by far the Afghan individual that has stood out. 89/7
14.1 to JO Holder, Rashid strikes! He's done him in with the line of that ball, and Gurbaz has done the rest. Holder pre-meditates this a bit, skipping down the wicket, possibly aiming to go straight down the wicket. Rashid goes flatter and wider, and turns it past his outside edge. Once Gurbaz collected, there was only going to be one result. 69/6
19.5 to HR Walsh, length, slower ball, and he swings this across the line, and Rashid Khan takes it at the deep mid-wicket fence! Decent contact from Walsh, as he finally latches on to the slower one, but sends this higher than far enough, and Rashid calls early to take this ahead of the man at long on. Naib almost gets into his bodybuilder pose, with arms crossed, and then signals to Walsh that hitting him across the line for six was just not on. 105/8
