All|Overs 1-50
4

to Sadiq, FOUR, back of a length delivery sliding down the leg-side, Sadiq gets some wood on his bat and that's enough. Goes past the diving keeper. Fine leg is inside the circle and there is no one stop that

6

to Mohammad Shahzad, SIX, shot! Shahzad makes Zimbabwe pay off the very next ball. A length ball on leg-stump line, Shahzad clears the front leg and heaves it over mid-wicket for a six. 14 off the over!

W

to Sadiq, out Caught by Brendan Taylor!! The umpire raises his finger, but Sadiq is not happy with the call. A pacy bouncer and Sadiq went for the swivel pull. It got big on him and he was in no position to play that stroke. Was there a faint edge there? There could have been a feather. Taylor makes no mistakes. Sadiq c Brendan Taylor b 5(7) [4s-1]

4

to Stanikzai, FOUR, ah! Almost another wicket. A well-directed bouncer, Stanikzai gets a glove on his pull and manages to get it just over a leaping keeper

4

to Mohammad Shahzad, FOUR, short ball, Shahzad was expecting that. Stood tall and pulled it over square leg. No chance for the man running across from deep mid-wicket to cut it off

6

to Mohammad Shahzad, SIX, that's a Mohammad Shahzad special! He idolizes MS Dhoni, now he plays a Dhoni-esque shot. It was darted on off and middle, Shahzad walked across and flicked it nonchalantly over backward square leg. A helicopter shot from Afghanistan's MS

4

to Mohammad Shahzad, byes, FOUR, the runs are coming thick and fast. Sharp bouncer, Shahzad is beaten on his pull. The keeper can't stop it and the ball rolls away past the boundary rope

W

to Mohammad Shahzad, out Caught by Brendan Taylor!! Shahzad doesn't wait for the umpire's call. Starts to walk off as soon as Taylor completed the catch. A shortish ball angled in at the right-hander, Shahzad tries to hack across the line, and all he manages is a faint under-edge that settles into the mitts of the keeper, who takes a low catch. 16 runs and a wicket off that over. Mohammad Shahzad c Brendan Taylor b 20(11) [4s-1 6s-2]

4

to Stanikzai, FOUR, another off-paced delivery, Stanikzai picks it, shuffles across and tucks it fine of the man at 45 to collect his second boundary

4

to Nabi, FOUR, shot! Overpitched outside off, Nabi lofts it over the mid-off fielder

4

to Nabi, FOUR, makes room and cuts behind square fiercely

W

to Stanikzai, out Lbw!! Skids in and pings high in front of middle-stump. Stanikzai lbw b 11(15) [4s-2]

4

to Sharafuddin Ashraf, FOUR, waits and dabs it through third man

6

to Sharafuddin Ashraf, SIX, mighty heave-ho over deep mid-wicket

6

to Nabi, SIX, overpitched, marauded over long-on's head. 44 off 60 needed

W

Burl to Sharafuddin Ashraf, out Lbw!! Rapped in front; doesn't read the one that skids back in. Sharafuddin Ashraf lbw b Burl 18(15) [4s-1 6s-1]

4

to Nabi, FOUR, one-legged pull through fine leg

W

to Najibullah, out Caught by Brendan Taylor!! Dabbles with taking the ball across, thin edge to the keeper. Najibullah c Brendan Taylor b 0(4)

6

Burl to Nabi, SIX, dragged down, pulled big over deep mid-wicket

4

to Shafiqullah, FOUR, fetches the pull from outside off and swivels it round the corner

6

to Nabi, SIX, short down leg, Nabi helps the pull over fine leg

6

to Shafiqullah, SIX, muscles this short ball over deep square leg. 6 needed

4

to Nabi, FOUR, full, drilled wide of mid-off

4

to Mire, FOUR, first one of the match! Tossed up delivery on middle and leg, Mire changes grips and reverse sweeps it beating the man at cover-point. That was a premeditated shot by the opener, and well executed

4

Ashraf to Masakadza, FOUR, swept away! Bowled on middle and leg, Masakadza goes down on his knee and sweeps it hard through fine leg as she races away to the fence. So, both openers have cracked a boundary each

4

to Mire, FOUR, dropped! Tossed up delivery on middle and leg, Mire slogs this one towards mid-wicket where the fielder in the deep gets a hand to it and spills it out. Parries it away to the fence too

4

to Mire, FOUR, reverse swept! Loopy delivery on off, Mire has reverse swept it again and finds the gap at backward point this time around

6

Ashraf to Masakadza, SIX, meaty blow! Tossed up delivery on off, Masakadza gets hold of it and smokes it over the long-off fence for half a dozen. That came right from the meat of his willow

4

Ashraf to Mire, FOUR, thrashed! Transfers his weight onto his backfoot and smashes the flatter delivery over the bowler's head

6

Ashraf to Mire, SIX, amazing hit! Fired in on off, Mire changes grip and times his reverse sweep over point for a maximum. He's played reverse sweeps like a boss so far

6

Ashraf to Mire, SIX, downtown! Charges down the wicket and times his lofted drive over covers. His strike rate has shot up to 200 after this biggie

4

Alam to Mire, FOUR, to third man, the partnership between Mire and Masakadza is now 50! Yorker deliverty on leg, Mire tries to flick it away but gets an inside edge to it. The ball clips his pads, beats the keeper and races away to the fence in a jiffy

W

Alam to Mire, out Caught by Nabi!! Alam draws first blood and gets the dangerous opener. Bangs it short on off, Mire goes for a pull but doesn't time it well at all. Ends up handing over an easy catch to Nabi at short mid-wicket. Entertaining knock nevertheless! Mire c Nabi b Alam 34(21) [4s-5 6s-2]

W

to Masakadza, out Bowled!! You miss, I hit! Fullish in length and aimed on leg, Masakadza goes down in order to slog that but misses it altogether, as it's a slower one. Beats his wild slog and takes down the leg stump. So, both Zimbabwean openers are back in the pavilion. Two new batsmen at the crease and Rashid Khan to bowl soon. Going to be quite difficult for the visitors to deal against their spinners from here on. Masakadza b 18(23) [4s-1 6s-1]

W

Ashraf to Brendan Taylor, out Brendan Taylor Run Out!! Disaster. Takes off straight away after punching this delivery to covers. Raza isn't interested in the run at all but Taylor's almost half way down. Has no chance to get back as Najibullah parries the ball to the keeper, who takes off the bails with ease. Panic! Brendan Taylor run out (Najibullah/Mohammad Shahzad) 3(11)

W

Ashraf to Raza, out Caught by Najibullah!! Another one bites the dust. Loopy delivery outside off, throws his hand at it but fails to get any sort of elevation on that. Spoons up towards covers where Naib times his leap and takes the catch. Looks like a procession of wickets and Zimbabwe are under pressure. Might get bowled out well within 20 overs if this continues. Raza c Najibullah b Ashraf 1(2)

W

to Moor, out Caught by Shafiqullah!! The man with the golden arm strikes in his first over. Bowls a tossed up delivery on middle and leg, goes for a slog sweep and gets a top edge. Goes high up in the air towards short fine leg where the fielder takes a safe catch. Half of Zimbabwe are back in the hut. Moor c Shafiqullah b 2(6)

W

Khan to Ryan Burl, out Lbw!! That's plumb! Tossed up delivery on middle and spins in sharply to beat the batsman's flick. Raps him right on the pads and the umpire has no problem to raise that dreaded finger. Might have hit the leg stump. First wicket for king Khan. How many more can he get from here on? Ryan Burl lbw b Khan 8(14)

W

Ashraf to Cremer, out Caught&Bowled!! Soft dismissal! Cremer comes down the track and is nowhere close to the pitch of the ball. Ashraf slowed the pace and also shortened his length seeing the batsman step out. Ends up chipping it back to the bowler. Cremer c and b Ashraf 3(9)

W

Khan to Jarvis, out Lbw!! Second wicket for Khan. The googly is too good for Jarvis. He doesn't pick it and plays down the wrong line, trying to work it through the leg-side. The impact was in in front of middle. That's hitting middle and leg. 85/8 now! Jarvis lbw b Khan 1(8)

4

Alam to Waller, FOUR, top shot! Waller backs away and slaps this length ball over extra cover

W

Khan to Chatara, out Bowled!! Knocked him over. Third wicket for Khan and second with the wrong 'un. Chatara played all around it trying to play the big sweep. Misses by a long way and Chatara hears the death rattle. Chatara b Khan 7(10)

4

Alam to Waller, FOUR, moves across a long way and scoops this slower ball from a short of length over short fine leg. Four off the first ball of the over

6

Alam to Waller, SIX, wow! A superb shot from Malcolm Waller. Full ball just outside off, Waller stays deep in his crease and carves it over deep backward point for a maximum

4

Alam to Waller, FOUR, short of length delivery, Waller backs away and spanks it over covers
