Amir Hamza4045111.25105300
2.6 to JJ Roy, bowled him! Terrific ball, 61mph fired in on leg stump and Roy, dancing down the pitch, misses it completely. 16/1
Shapoor Zadran403408.5084110
Mohammad Nabi401724.25132000
5.3 to JM Vince, driven straight back to Nabi! Tame and lame from Vince who, dancing down the pitch to a slower ball, dabs a dolly back to the bowler. 42/2
5.4 to EJG Morgan, gone! Morgan's left a straight one - shouldering arms, waiting for the turn and oh dear, oh dear, oh dear!. 42/3
Samiullah Shinwari402315.75101020
8.1 to JC Buttler, what a catch, what a blinder to dismiss Buttler! Driven on the up and short extra cover dives forward and to his left as though scooping fish from the river, plucking a beauty!. 50/5
Rashid Khan401724.25142010
9.2 to BA Stokes, he's...he's...bowled him! The googly, short of a length and Stokes went to pull it but is much too quick on it, inside-edging it onto his stumps - and in the process, falling over onto his derriere, which rather sums up England's comical effort this afternoon. 57/6
14.3 to CJ Jordan, gone. Too easy. Rashid can't believe it! Tried to turn it to leg but gets a limp leading edge back to the bowler. 85/7

David Willey402325.75123010
0.3 to Mohammad Shahzad, gone! Afghanistan's lynchpin is trapped in front to a swinging delivery on middle, bending back onto middle-and-leg. 4/1
2.6 to Gulbadin Naib, touch shorter and Gulbadin tries to heave this over the top but picks out extra cover. 13/3
Chris Jordan402716.75121200
1.6 to Asghar Stanikzai, gone - sharp, quick ball. 89mph just outside off and the captain fends this straight to Root at first slip who takes it chest-height, smartly. 12/2
Liam Plunkett411203.00130010
Moeen Ali201718.5041100
7.5 to Rashid Khan, gone! Sharp catch! Driven on the up straight to Morgan at short extra-cover who leaps high to snaffle a smart catch. 35/4
Adil Rashid301826.0090110
8.5 to Noor Ali Zadran, short of a length and it gets stuck in the pitch - he's much too quick onto it, tamely punching it back to Rashid who takes the simplest of catches. 39/5
12.5 to Mohammad Nabi, oh, Nabi's lured into this - well bowled by Rashid. He gave it a touch more air, and Nabi tried to loft him over the top but miscues to Jordan at wide long-on. 64/6
Ben Stokes302819.3363110
16.4 to Samiullah Shinwari, possibly one of the worst balls ever bowled, miles wide of off, short, slow - complete and utter filth - but Shinwari's attempt to smack it over cover merely skies it straight to Root at extra-cover. 94/8
