Angelo Mathews301715.6692020
2.5 to Mohammad Shahzad, and Shahzad has to go now. Mathews has done the trick. Stuck to his line and length and Shahzad could not resist another massive heave. He backs away and looks for a pull into the leg side but a bit of outswing helps take a leading edge which lobs up for mid-on to take. Not a great shot, an uncomfortable stay ends.. 12/1
Nuwan Kulasekara4043110.7594210
16.3 to Samiullah Shinwari, Shenwari holes out this time. Pretty good line that, full and wide outside off. Shenwari backs away just a touch, and goes after it. gets under it sufficiently but not enough power behind the lofted drive. Skied and almost clears long-off but Perera catches it a foot or so inside.. 112/5
Dushmantha Chameera401904.7580020
Rangana Herath402426.00141210
8.1 to Noor Ali Zadran, bowled im, around his legs. Herath fires one full and quick on leg. Noor Ali shuffles across and misses his premeditated sweep. The ball spins to hit the side of leg stump. A decent innings but lacked fluency.. 44/2
10.6 to Mohammad Nabi, given, Afghanistan's struggles are continuing. Flat on middle, and skids on with the arm to strike Nabi plumb in front. Easy decision for the umpire and Afghanistan are spiralling downwards. 51/4
Thisara Perera403338.2584100
9.3 to Karim Sadiq, gone. Sadiq's iffy stay has ended now. All gone to pieces. Runs down to the pitch, looking for another big slog down the ground. Gets a faint edge which is gleefully accepted by Chandimal.. 46/3
18.4 to Shafiqullah, dragged to deep midwicket. Shafiqulalh, trying to get under one just like his captain, does so but fails to time the delivery. More of the inside half and it carries all the way with that angular bat. 132/6
18.6 to Asghar Stanikzai, gone. End of a sensational knock from Stanikzai. Went down for a cheeky ramp this time, but Perera sticks to his length - full and wide - and forces Stanikzai to alter is stroke. He tries to dab a reverse lap past short third man but the ball lobs up off after Stanikzai failed to make adequate contact. Chandi takes an easy catch.. 136/7

Mohammad Nabi412516.2592000
5.2 to LD Chandimal, gone. Nabi does it. Stanikzai goes to his main bowler and gets rewarded. Nabi may have seen Chandi advancing and shortened the length. Chandimal goes for a big heave but doesn't get it off the middle, it lobs up off the inside half and lodges in midwicket's hands, who takes it over his head. 41/1
Rashid Khan402716.75113100
8.4 to HDRL Thirimanne, bowled im. Rashid's legbreak induces the inside edge, which clatters into the stumps. Thirimanne was struggling to pick the variations, and wasn't able to rotate the strike either. Slightly flatter from Rashid outside off and Thirimanne throws his hands at it, away from his body. 58/2
