Fall of wickets: 1-63 (Mohammad Shahzad, 6.3 ov), 2-75 (Asghar Afghan, 8.3 ov), 3-104 (Usman Ghani, 12.5 ov), 4-105 (Karim Sadiq, 13.2 ov), 5-157 (Mohammad Nabi, 17.5 ov), 6-162 (Najibullah Zadran, 18.2 ov), 7-173 (Gulbadin Naib, 19.1 ov)
17.5 to Mohammad Nabi, full-toss on off stump, this time it's angling into the batsman and he looks to clear his front leg and go over the on side, ends up finding Raza coming in from the long-on boundary. 157/5
18.2 to Najibullah Zadran, shortish outside off, and he's chopped it on. That came on slower than he expected as he looked to pull, only managed a bottom edge onto the stumps. 162/6
6.3 to Mohammad Shahzad, bowled him! Held it back a bit, both in terms of pace and in terms of length, and Shahzad is through that big sweep too early and the ball crashes into middle stump. 63/1
8.3 to Asghar Stanikzai, and it's a short sighting. Shorter this time from Cremer and he pulls, doesn't quite connect as cleanly as he would like, and Raza takes a good catch diving to his left at deep midwicket. 75/2
13.2 to Karim Sadiq, length ball on off stump, and Sadiq has picked out deep midwicket. Plays a powerful slog-sweep, clearing his front leg, and Chibhabha takes a good low catch, diving forward. 105/4
12.5 to Usman Ghani, loopy flight wide of off and Ghani has to make all the power himself, Raza had slowed it down considerably. Hit it hard, looking to hit straight down the ground, but only managed to pick out the fielder at long-off. 104/3

Fall of wickets: 1-2 (Peter Moor, 0.3 ov), 2-32 (Chamu Chibhabha, 2.6 ov), 3-54 (Richmond Mutumbami, 6.1 ov), 4-95 (Hamilton Masakadza, 11.1 ov), 5-151 (Sikandar Raza, 17.5 ov), 6-170 (Elton Chigumbura, 19.1 ov), 7-182 (Luke Jongwe, 19.6 ov)
0.3 to PJ Moor, short, a bit of width, and it was there to be hit, but he thrashed at it and picked out the man at backward point. 2/1
2.6 to CJ Chibhabha, short again, and this time he takes on the pull. It's quick, though, and he's late on the shot, hits the top part of the bat and pops up in the air, simple catch for mid-on. They check to see if Dawlat has overstepped, and his front foot looks okay. Another wicket for Dawlat, ends a dangerous-looking innings. 32/2
19.6 to LM Jongwe, full and wide, slices it high over the off side, he's hit it well, and... and he's found the man at deep cover. Simple catch at chest height for Gulbadin Naib, and he tumbles to his left as he completes it. 182/7
17.5 to Sikandar Raza, stumped, gone. Jumps down the pitch and slogs across the line. It's the straighter one, fired in, beats the inside edge, Shahzad collects down the leg side and has the bails off in a flash. 151/5
6.1 to R Mutumbami, starts with a short ball on off stump, and Mutumbami has clubbed it high in the air and straight to wide long-on. Made a decent connection, but I'm not sure he was looking to hit it that high in the air. Maybe it came on quicker than he expected and didn't have time to roll his wrists over the pull. 54/3
11.1 to H Masakadza, and he strikes first ball. Third man was inside the circle, and he might have premeditated the reverse sweep here. The line was too close to off stump for that, and Nabi cleverly bowled it a bit slower, and the ball turned in and went past him almost after he had completed his shot, and crashed into the stumps. 95/4
