41.6 to Rashid Khan, Cornwall makes no mistake this time! Was a touch fuller around fifth stump, Rashid looked to defend only to get an outside edge low to first slip. Cornwall did better this time, got his finger underneath the ball and took it neatly. 111/7
67.3 to Amir Hamza, and Holder has his second. An outside edge to the keeper, a regulation catch for Dowrich. This was too good for Hamza, coming in with the angle, forcing the batsman to play and then moving away late to take the edge. 187/9
Rahkeem Cornwall25.357572.941197200
12.2 to Ibrahim Zadran, fuller around off and Zadran goes for the sweep, looking to hit it behind square but misses. Holder at leg slip grabs it with an outstretched left hand while diving forward. An appeal for the catch and given. Zadran is not happy though but there is no DRS for this series. It's not clear from replays though if there was an edge. 28/1
30.4 to Ihsanullah, gets his man! This time there's no evading first slip. Terrific bowling from Cornwall. Tosses this up, around off, and it doesn't turn as much as Ihsanullah expects. He presses forward to defend, and it runs off the outside edge, quick and straight to Shai Hope. That's lunch too, and those two wickets will make that lunch taste all that better for the West Indies. 90/3
32.1 to Rahmat Shah, Cornwall and Holder combine again! Tossed up around off and middle, Rahmat moves across and looks to defend but the ball spins sharply to take the inside edge. A relatively easier catch for Holder this time, low but he didn't have to dive. 91/4
34.6 to Nasir Jamal, fuller around off, Jamal was once again looking to work on the leg side, the outside edge goes straight to Hope at first slip this time. Cornwall has his fourth, Afghanistan tottering at 95 for 5. 95/5
36.6 to Asghar Afghan, maiden five-for in Test cricket for Cornwall. Not the best of the deliveries tough, it was short and wide, Asghar went back to cut but it went straight and the extra bounce meant he could get only an edge to it. Dowrich made no mistake. 98/6
60.6 to Afsar Zazai, Cornwall has six! Plays back to one that was tossed a long way up. Pitched around off, and didn't turn as much as Zazai expected, and it has hit him in front, as he was looking to shuffle across. Perhaps would have been good enough to just take the top of leg-stump, but this is an important breakthrough for West Indies at tea!. 165/8
68.3 to Yamin Ahmadzai, down the track, to the pitch but doesn't get the required elevation despite the neat connection. Warrican takes a good catch to his left at long-off. 187/10
Jomel Warrican1313512.69615000
27.6 to Javed Ahmadi, one shot too many! This is disappointing from Ahmadi, because he has looked good in this morning session. With lunch not long from now, this is irresponsible, especially with long-off in place. Tossed up by Warrican around off, and he looks to drive straight and hard. Wants to clear the man stationed at long-off, and possibly wanted to go wide of him too, but it's straight down his throat. West Indies will welcome this breakthrough, as the partnership was whirring along just perfectly for Afghanistan!. 84/2

Yamin Ahmadzai1032402.40515000
Amir Hamza28.347452.591317001
8.5 to KC Brathwaite, there's the breakthrough! Bowls this wide of the crease, and pushes it through a bit flatter and straighter. Brathwaite stretches forward to defend, but plays outside the line of this. A maiden wicket for Hamza after Nitin Menon takes a long, hard look. He's convinced that this would have gone on with the angle and clipped the top of leg, I would think. 27/1
30.2 to JD Campbell, what a brilliant catch. Great anticipation too, from Ihsanullah who moved from first slip to his right after seeing the batsman shaping up for a lap sweep. Campbell failed to middle it and it lobbed towards leg gully. Ihsanullah put in the dive and took with his right hand. 116/3
71.4 to JO Holder, appeal for a stumping, and they have sent this upstairs! Hamza tosses this up around off, and Holder stretches forward to meet it, and Zazai is quick to whip the bails off. The question is where is Holder's back foot? It's in the air and hasn't been plonked back in time before Zazai can do his glovework. Top wicket! Good keeping to complement what was originally a clever variation from Hamza - a delivery with some extra revs on it and it just evaded Holder's blade as he sought to defend it. 243/7
79.5 to SSJ Brooks, got him this time! Length ball, tossed from wide of the crease, and this was the one that went on with the arm. Brooks looks to go big towards mid-wicket, and perhaps for the first time in this beautiful innings of his, he loses shape, and is punished for it. 270/9
83.3 to KAJ Roach, it's five on debut for Amir Hamza! Gets one to straighten from a length, and Roach stretches to play it with a forward defensive, but plays outside the line of the ball. It goes on to hit his front pad, with not enough of a stride forward to create much doubt in the mind of the umpire.. 277/10
Rashid Khan32511433.5614415200
11.1 to SD Hope, what a ball this is from Rashid Khan! That's a leg-spinner's dream ball...pitches on middle, straightens, and goes at a good enough pace, pitched on a good enough length, to find Hope inside the crease. Kisses the outside edge and flies low to first slip. Rashid Khan lets out a celebratory jump. He knows he has removed one of the main batsmen that could have taken the attack to the Afghan spinners in the West Indies camp. An absolute ripper!. 34/2
37.4 to SO Hetmyer, Paul Reiffel takes a while before raising his finger. Was a length ball pitching around middle, Hetmyer came forward to defend but missed and the ball hit the front pad. A big appeal and given out. Replays show it might have just missed or just clipped the leg stump, a close call. 137/4
76.4 to RRS Cornwall, Rashid has another! Fired in quicker, and Cornwal plays from the crease. Given out leg before, and Cornwall can't believe it. There's an inside edge on to the pad, though it was straight as deliveries go. Doesn't matter...no DRS here for the West Indies batsman. Afghanistan continue to chip away in this fascinating contest. 260/8
Zahir Khan1325324.07537000
40.1 to RL Chase, presses forward, and inside-edges this into the lap of short leg! Great ball from Zahir, as he gets it to dip a touch and deceives Chase in flight, as he presses forward to defend. Off the inside edge, and goes low to Ibrahim Zadran, who stays low and catches it smartly. 150/5
66.3 to SO Dowrich, and there's the much-needed breakthrough. A touch fuller around off and middle, Dowrich plants his front foot forward and looks to defend around his pads. But the ball spins back and hits him on the pads, just below the knee roll. No doubt about that. 224/6

37.1 to Rashid Khan, and he strikes first ball. Short of length around off stump, Rashid is almost squared up as he looks to defend. A healthy edge towards the right of Dowrich who puts in the dive and grabs it with his fingertips. The ball wobbles but he clings to his chest to hold on to it. 111/8
41.4 to Yamin Ahmadzai, the off stump has been flattened. Was a length ball angling in, Ahmadzai is looking to play at it but the ball holds its line in the end to to take the off stump out. 119/9
43.1 to Afsar Zazai, Holder gets his third. Short of length just outside off, Zazai looks to defend but can only get an outside edge. A regulation catch for Dowrich. 120/10
Jomel Warrican1233102.58595000
Rahkeem Cornwall1834632.55784001
18.6 to Ibrahim Zadran, a grave misjudgement there from Zadran. A length ball outside off and spinning in. Zadran shouldered arms and let it hit the pad. The impact was just outside off, that but doesn't though as he didn't offer any shot. The finger goes up. 53/1
20.6 to Rahmat Shah, Cornwall strikes again! Rahmat Shah, Afghanistan's only Test centurion, looks to stretch forward to meet a length ball around off. This dips on him after drifting a touch away, and then kisses the inside edge of his bat and flies towards forward short-leg, who grabs this perfectly. Sharp catch by Brooks, and another one for Cornwall, who is one away from 10 for the match!. 55/3
22.1 to Asghar Afghan, 10 for Cornwall! Asghar Afghan, another senior pro, is done in by bat-pad, as he looks to flick a length ball around middle. Inside edge on to pad, and Brooks takes a simple catch. A little loose from Afghan, as he would have been better advised to offer the full face of the bat this early in his innings. A golden duck for the former captain, and Cornwall looks set to run through Afghanistan yet again!. 59/4
Roston Chase311033.33142000
31.4 to Nasir Jamal, gone through him! This hasn't turned as much as Jamal expects, as he stretches forward to defend. Pitches outside off and just a hint of turn inwards, and goes on to clip the top of off. Bonus wicket for West Indies in many ways, and this now exposes Afsar Zazai and the rest of the bowlers. 96/5
33.5 to Amir Hamza, the change of angle works! Tosses this up, and invites the drive from Hamza. The ball doesn't turn as much as Hamza hopes, and flies low to the left of Cornwall at first slip. He gets his big hands across to this and holds on. 98/6
35.6 to Javed Ahmadi, Chase has another! Goes on with the angle across the batsman, who stretches forward to meet this. Off the edge, and runs low through to Cornwall, who keeps himself low and collects this. Chase goes off on a celebratory run. 109/7
