46.1 to CR Ervine, what has he done here? A harmless full toss outside off has been hit straight to deep cover. Nothing delivery, nothing shot, really. He backs himself to clear the fielder there, hits it well but it almost seems like he forgot there was a fielder in the deep. He may have also got it a lot squarer than he would have liked. The umpire's checked for the no-ball and it seems fine. So Ervine has to make the long walk back. That is a gift.. 214/5
46.5 to MN Waller, Lasith Malinga would have been proud of that yorker. Full, and dead straight, the ball tails back in just a wee bit, he was already through with the big swing, couldn't connect as the ball cannoned into the middle stump. Is there a better sight than seeing a fast bowler rattle the stumps? Me thinks not. 223/6
48.3 to Sikandar Raza, looked to clear the boundary, but the elevation was missing, didn't get enough power behind that one as the ball lodges in the hands of the long-off fielder. He didn't have to move an inch to take that dolly.. 231/7
Mirwais Ashraf803704.62294100
Mohammad Nabi1004924.90362300
15.5 to PJ Moor, Shahzad is ecstatic, he is sure he has his man. Pushed through wide outside off, Moor goes for the drive and is beaten. Shahzad does very well to whip off the bails and Moor's back foot is on the line. Shahzad's quick work earns Afghanistan their first wicket. Good stuff.. 71/1
39.4 to H Masakadza, done in by slow turn this time. The pressure was building and Masakadza has fallen into the trap. His eyes lit up as the delivery was tossed up over his eye line, stepped out to go over long-on, swung a little too early, was completely deceived in flight as the ball spun back in to hit the stumps. Big wicket for Afghanistan. Could be a big moment in the innings too, for Zimbabwe. 170/3
Rokhan Barakzai1014524.50314020
16.3 to R Mutumbami, Rokhan has his first wicket in ODIs. Flat delivery on off, the ball doesn't come on as fast as Mutumbami expected, and the ball lobbed back after a tentative drive from Mutumbami. Rokhan needed two juggles to hold on to his first wicket.. 72/2
45.2 to E Chigumbura, he's launched that into orbit, but a good effort by Nabi at long-on steals the thunder. It was right in the slot for him to go for the big hit, didn't perhaps get the elevation he wanted even though he struck it well, and Nabi balanced himself nicely to take the rocket hit.. 210/4

34.5 to Nawroz Mangal, gone! Mangal's stumbling innings has finally ended. Tossed up nicely on off and Mangal was persistent in trying to play against the turn to the legspinner. He gets a big of a leading edge back to the bowler who takes a sitter and Mangal has to go.. 179/3
Sikandar Raza703715.28242210
17.5 to Noor Ali Zadran, there's the breakthrough for Zimbabwe. He got to the pitch of the ball, timed it nicely, did most things right, but Craig Ervine, at long-on, had his eyes on the ball, while also knowing where the rope was behind him, before completing the catch. Big wicket against the run of play at a time when Afghanistan were slowly eating into the target. 82/1
Elton Chigumbura703234.57202010
35.1 to Asghar Afghan, bowled im. Chigumbura strikes. Chigs enjoys a jig. Shortish delivery outside off, Stanikzai goes for a full-blooded cut but the ball stops and grips in the pitch, and takes the inside edge before clattering into the stumps.. 180/4
37.6 to Samiullah Shinwari, another one for Chigs. Inzy isn't impressed. Shenwari goes now. Nips one back in and sneaks through a big gap between bat and pad and uproots the middle stump. Not much Shenwari could have done about that, no wonder there is a look of amazement on his face. He has to go though. Chigumbura's self-introduction into the attack has changed the complexion of this game.. 186/5
39.6 to Najibullah Zadran, gone! Another one goes. Chigs gets another. A slower ball on off and middle, Najibullah goes for a pull but gets a leading edge which lobs up int he air for midwicket to take. And a great catch too, he backtracked and took a hard catch over his head running back.. 198/6
