Donald Tiripano403619.00102230
18.5 to Mohammad Nabi, Tiripani unfurls the slower ball from the back of the hand. Nabi swings across the line and misses. The middle stump is pegged back. Afghanistan have raced past 200, though. 201/5
Tendai Chisoro402516.25122110
13.3 to Karim Sadiq, flighted and full outside off, Sadiq swings and carves it to sweeper cover. 145/3
Luke Jongwe403418.5093110
11.4 to Asghar Stanikzai, Jongwe breaks the racy stand! Back of a length and angled in on middle, Stanikzai swings wildly and does not connect. The middle stump is knocked back. Oh wait, Stanikzai may have got an inside edge onto that. 116/2
Chamu Chibhabha4056114.0055400
14.4 to Shafiqullah, Shafiqullah holes out now. Short ball on the stumps, he pulls. Hit high on the bat; deep square leg swallows it. 154/4
Graeme Cremer3035111.6683310
6.1 to Usman Ghani, first-ball wicket for Cremer! Pushed through, skids off the surface, beats Ghani's cut and thuds into the top of off. It is a legal ball and Ghani is gone for 5 off 13 balls. Ghani did not think Cremer had him. He perhaps thought that the keeper had knocked the bails off. 43/1

Dawlat Zadran302127.0090200
2.1 to CJ Chibhabha, Dropped and out next ball! Banged in short and hurries onto the batsman. He does not control the hook. Gets a top edge that settles into the hands of Nabi. He runs to his right from midwicket and catches it near square leg. Dawlat celebrates by blowing kisses. 8/1
14.5 to PJ Moor, Moor jumps outside leg, Dawlat bowls it further wide outside off. Leg-breakish slower ball. Moor reaches out and slices to deep point. Ghani runs in and snaps it up. Dawlat and Nelson strike. 111/6
Amir Hamza3.111524.73100100
3.2 to R Mutumbami, MS fumbles, but stumps 'em on the rebound! It's MS's night in Sharjah. The batsman steps out, Hamza is wary of it as he shortens his length. This one arrows in with the angle, beats the batsman. 18/2
3.3 to MN Waller, two in two for Hamza! The finger goes up. Arm-ball, snakes in sharply and raps the pad in front of off. It was too quick for Waller to chop it away square. Quite a threat to chop from the stumps as well. 18/3
Sayed Shirzad403127.7582130
16.2 to LM Jongwe, And Jonge falls! Full and pushed across off, he looks to go over cover. He does not get the required timing, and plops a catch to the captain at cover! Dolly catch. 120/8
16.6 to AG Cremer, full and angling away outside off, Cremer targets the leg side with a swipe. He makes a mess of it and skewers it to cover. Ghani calls for it and takes it. 124/9
Mohammad Nabi211015.0070100
5.1 to Sikandar Raza, lovely offbreak, grips in the surface, MS effects another stumping. This is a simpler one. Raza shows his ace early as he dances out, Nabi held this back. MS does the rest. 34/4
Rashid Khan402215.50102000
15.4 to H Masakadza, slog-sweep and a miss again! Rashid nails the off stump now! Fired straight on off. Hamilton goes across the line and does not connect. He has added some respectability to the chase, though. 114/7
