Mark Watt403017.5074000
12.6 to Mohammad Shahzad, the party is over, but has he made an impact or what? This one was tossed up again, he backed himself to loft it over the bowler's head but didn't generate the kind of power as he would have liked, got it a little too high on the bat as the long on fielder ran across to his left to take that without too much hassle.. 107/2
Josh Davey4044111.0052250
15.6 to Gulbadin Naib, outstanding catch! Machan was running in from the ropes at wide long-on, Gulbadin looked to lift it with the angle over, but didn't generate enough power. The fielder had to watch out for his momentum as it could have easily taken him forward, but he stopped at the right moment, then dived forward to complete the catch. The best thing about the catch was he was aware of his elbows hitting the ground and adjusted well to ensure the ball didn't bobble out. 128/3
Alasdair Evans402416.00102000
2.5 to Noor Ali Zadran, this time, the third man, who was square, has come into the picture. It was short and wide, should have been clattered over point. But Noor Ali slashed too hard, only managed a thick edge which carried to Davey, who caught it well. He had to run in a couple of paces from the ropes, and he did it without a fuss. That should boost Scotland, for it was turning out to be an aggressive start from Afghanistan. 25/1

18.5 to MW Machan, swung across the line, can only slice it to the point fielder. The pressure has got to him, he simply had to tee off. Afghanistan wold believe they are into the home stretch. Industrious innings, but couldn't bring out the big hits when he had to. 149/5
Rashid Khan402827.0092010
9.1 to HG Munsey, that's as plumb as it can get. This one was a fast leg-cutter that pitched on middle and off, he looked to sweep, but was better off playing straight. Once he was hit on the pad, there was little doubt as to what the umpire's decision was going to be. He raised the finger in a jiffy. Afghanistan are back into this.. 85/2
12.4 to RD Berrington, mighty quick stumping, but was the back foot plonked back in time when the bails came off? It was nicely tossed up wrong-un, he stepped out and then looked to sweep, missed it completely as the keeper removed the bails. The back foot was at least a metre outside the crease, and it was too late by the time he tried to drag it back. He's made up for the lapse in the previous over. Afghanistan continue to make inroads after that strong start.. 108/4
Samiullah Shinwari302117.0041010
8.5 to KJ Coetzer, a lollipop delivery has given them a wicket. It was too short, he looked to pull but didn't get hold of it and found the only man at the boundary, at deep square leg. He takes a dolly. Should come as major relief for Afghanistan. 84/1
