4

to Ihsanullah, FOUR, fuller length delivery angling away from Ihsanullah who stays in the crease and lofts it over cover for a boundary

4

to Mohammad Shahzad, FOUR, good length delivery outside off, Mohammad Shahzad bisects the gap between cover and point brilliantly and ball races along the carpet for a boundary. Fielder there puts in a valiant effort but it goes in vain as ball touches the ropes when he tried to pull it back

W

to Mohammad Shahzad, out Caught by (sub)Musakanda!! has his man finally, that poor decision doesn't cost Zimbabwe anything. It was back of a length delivery and Mohammad Shahzad cuts it straight to fielder at point who takes a fine catch. Mohammad Shahzad c (sub)Musakanda b 7(14) [4s-1]

4

to Rahmat, FOUR, Rahmat plants his front foot forward and drives it through cover for a boundary to get off the mark

4

to Rahmat, FOUR, this was a good bouncer from , it rised after pitching and hits it high on the bat of Rahmat, ball deflects fine of fine-leg for a boundary

6

to Rahmat, SIX, Rahmat pulls and pulls it handsomely, uses the height and pace on the ball and ball clears the square leg boundary for a maximum. Boundary is pretty short there so that helped

4

to Ihsanullah, FOUR, fuller length outside off, Ihsanullah drives it away from the body through cover for a boundary

4

to Rahmat, FOUR, this is at a comfortable height for Rahmat and he pulls it to square leg for a boundary. is bowling too many short ball and it is getting predictible now, Rahmat was ready for it

W

to Ihsanullah, out Caught by Waller!! strikes again, there was no need to play this shot at all. Inexperience coming to the fore. It was on a good length and Ihsanullah wanted to loft it over mid-on, bat turned in his hand at the time ball made contact and he hits it straight to mid-on who grabs a fine catch. Ihsanullah c Waller b 12(16) [4s-2]

4

to Rahmat, FOUR, this is nicely timed and placed. Waited for the ball and just guides it wide of third man fielder for a boundary, uses the pace on the ball really well

4

to Rahmat, FOUR, terrific shot, no need to run for that. It wasn't a half volley but Rahmat gets in a good position and drives it between the bowler and the mid-off for a boundary, just the extension of his forward defence

4

to Rahmat, FOUR, waits for the ball and cuts it square of the wicket for a boundary. Fielder there makes a valiant effort but it goes waste as the ball touches the ropes

4

to Nasir Jamal, FOUR, good shot! Gets in the position quickly and clips it to sqaure leg for a boundary. Afghanistan want to finish it quickly

4

to Nasir Jamal, FOUR, another short ball and not well directed, Nasir Jamal puts bat to it and ball goes just wide of the keeper for a boundary

4

to Nasir Jamal, FOUR, excellent short delivery, Nasir Jamal was on his toes while playing it, he gets an outside edge and ball races for a boundary to third man

4

to Rahmat, FOUR, gets down on the back knee and gets the slog-sweep away over mid-wicket. Comfortable for Rahmat. It was right in the slot

4

to Rahmat, FOUR, this one's pretty short, and Rahmat has dispatched it for four more. It was a flat pull which went just over mid-wicket. Raises his fifty as well

4

to Rahmat, FOUR, this time he gets it away. Hops towards the leg-side, it's another short of length delivery, and Rahmat flays it up and over point

4

to Nasir Jamal, FOUR, loopy full toss at the stumps, no problems for Jamal as he sweeps it behind square. There's no one behind square in the deep. All too comfortable

W

Burl to Rahmat, out Lbw!! Rahmat is baffled by this decision. This is marginal call to be fair to the umpire, could have gone either way. He had a big stride out to defend this googly, and the ball hit his pad around off-stump. Marginal. Height might have been an issue too given how far his stride was. Rahmat lbw b Burl 56(52) [4s-9 6s-1]

4

to Nasir Jamal, FOUR, connects with the slog-sweep. It's not the best connection, but there's enough of it to take it to the deep mid-wicket ropes

6

to Nabi, SIX, clears the stadium! Galloped to the pitch of the ball and those long levers from Nabi muscle it over deep mid-wicket. It's a monster hit. Nabi becomes the first Afghanistan player to 2000 ODI runs

OT

to Nabi, no run, gives it a nice rip this time and turns it past Nabi's outside edge in his defence

4

Burl to Nabi, FOUR, looks to punch this flat delivery off the back-foot, the ball takes the edge and runs away through the vacant slip region

4

to Nasir Jamal, FOUR, drifting in on leg, there's no one in the deep behind square so Jamal deliberately sweeps this over short fine leg. Collects four. Fifty for Jamal

W

to Nasir Jamal, out Caught by (sub)Tendai Chisoro!! Wanted to finish it with a glory shot, but miscues it. The ball turned away from him and it caught the toe-end of the bat to lob straight to mid-on. Very good knock though. Nasir Jamal c (sub)Tendai Chisoro b 50(55) [4s-6]

4

Burl to Najibullah, FOUR, drops it short outside off, allowing Najibullah to slap it through point for four. Just one away now

4

Burl to Najibullah, FOUR, drills it over mid-off to seal the win! Afghanistan take a 2-1 lead in the series

4

Zadran to Masakadza, FOUR, this is a sumptous shot. Zadran pitches it up and Masakadza was waiting for it, gets it a good position, shows the full face of the bat and drives it straight down the ground for a boundary

4

to Mire, FOUR, reverse sweep comes off finally. He was trying it from the first ball and connects on the third attempt, finds the gap on the off-side for a boundary

4

Zadran to Masakadza, FOUR, wonderful pick up shot from Masakadza. Good length delivery on the pads, Masakadza times it beautifully and lofts it through mid-wicket for a boundary

W

Zadran to Masakadza, out Caught by Ihsanullah!! Masakadza would be dejected with that shot, it was nothing shot really. He wanted to run it down the third man and gets an outside edge and manages to hit it straight to the slip fielder. Ball bounced extra after pitching and that that would have led to the false shot. Masakadza c Ihsanullah b Zadran 9(17) [4s-2]

6

to Mire, SIX, this is a terrific shot from Mire. It was on the pads and Mire slog sweeps it over square leg for a maximum. If he can play convential sweep so well then there is no need for reverse sweep

6

Zadran to Mire, SIX, Brilliant shot for a six. Nothing wrong with the ball at all, Mire gets in the good position early and absolutely smashes it to the square leg for a maximum

6

to Brendan Taylor, SIX, effortless shot for a maximum. Tossed up delivery outside off, Brendan Taylor lofts it over the mid-off, he times it so well that ball goes all the way for a maximum. He looks in fine touch

W

to Brendan Taylor, out Caught by Stanikzai!! strikes, big fish Brendan Taylor departs. This is a huge moment in the game. Tossed up delivery outside off, Brendan Taylor wanted to chip it over mid-on, gets it off the toe end of the willow and finds mid-off who takes a fine catch. Brendan Taylor c Stanikzai b 9(10) [6s-1]

W

to Mire, out Caught by Mohammad Shahzad!! Another wicket for , another wicket for Afghanistan, they are all over Zimbabwe here. Mire goes for his favorite sweep shot, bowls it a tad quicker. Mire misses it completely and gets a tiny feather, Mohammad Shahzad behind the stumps makes no mistake and Mire will have to depart. He was shaking his head while going back. Mire c Mohammad Shahzad b 22(19) [4s-1 6s-2]

4

to Craig Ervine, FOUR, Craig Ervine brings out the reverse sweep and he sweeps it well, beats the short third man fielder for the boundary

6

to Raza, SIX, rare poor delivery from and Raza pounces on to it, he goes on the back foot and pulls it over deep mid-wicket for a maximum

6

to Raza, SIX, this is gigantic hit from Raza, it has gone 15 rows back. Must be a 100 meters hit or even more. Raza dances down the track on that tossed up delivery and gives it a full monty, gets it off the meat of the blade and ball sails into the stands

4

to Craig Ervine, FOUR, sweeps and sweeps well! Terrific execution from Craig Ervine. He gets down on his knees and sweeps it fine of fine-leg for a boundary

4

to Craig Ervine, FOUR, this is a sweep shot of highest order. Gets down on his knees and finds the gap brillianly. 2 fours in last 3 balls for Craig Ervine

6

to Raza, SIX, this is a brave shot from Raza, there was a fielder at deep mid-wicket but he backs himself to clear the fielder to deep mid-wicket and he clears the fielder with ease on that pull shot for a maximum

4

to Raza, FOUR, luck favors the brave, he wanted to swat it over deep mid-wicket again, gets a thick outside edge and ball runs down the third man for a boundary

4

Khan to Craig Ervine, FOUR, swept away powerfully to the deep square leg boundary. He bent across to pick the leg-break from outside off and swatted it away

W

Khan to Raza, out Lbw!! Running appeal from Khan, and up goes the finger. Raza doesn't look happy at all. There's nothing he can do about it though. No DRS. It did look like a contentious decision actually. The flipper from , skids on rapidly and pins Raza on the back foot. But was it going down leg? Off and middle stump were visible at the point of impact. Raza lbw b Khan 38(50) [4s-1 6s-3]

W

Khan to Ryan Burl, out Lbw!! Two in two for ! Another leg-before. Flighted leg-break which pitches around middle and leg and hits Burl on the pad as he misses the sweep. Would the turn have taken it down leg? Looks marginal. Anyway, big trouble here for Zimbabwe. Ryan Burl lbw b Khan 0(1)

4

to Waller, leg byes, FOUR, runs away off the pad for four! Didn't pick the googly, shuffled too far across and exposed his leg-stump. Thankfully, the pad came in the way

W

to Waller, out Lbw!! Waller almost walked even before the finger was raised. He went back to play this off-break, missed it and was caught plumb in front of off. Waller lbw b 1(11)

W

Khan to Craig Ervine, out Lbw!! Loud appeal, and a long one, before the finger comes up eventually. The umpire looked at his partner at square leg and then made the call. Not sure what that was about. But Zimbabwe have now lost pretty much their last major hope in Ervine. He's been set up magnificently by , who doled out googlies on the previous three deliveries, before unleashing a big leg-break to hit the pad. Ervine had no problems with the googlies, but this one sends him packing as he plays across the line. Craig Ervine lbw b Khan 39(55) [4s-4]

W

to Cremer, out Caught&Bowled!! Top-edge goes straight up, bowler gets under it and takes it comfortably. Then he flexes both his biceps like some wrestler would do. Weird. He has a laugh about it with Shahzad, who probably gave him some stick. Not a great shot here from Cremer, looking to pull a delivery from far wide of off. Cremer c and b 2(18)

4

Khan to Chatara, FOUR, this one's flown away off the edge past slip. That's not even a chance, the fielder had no chance, that's how quickly it went. zipped this one in, did Chatara in completely through his trajectory

W

Khan to Chatara, out Bowled!! Slips the googly right through bat and pad. Chatara lunged out to defend this, didn't pick it though, and it turned in quite a bit to knock over off-stump. takes off in celebration. Chatara b Khan 11(15) [4s-1]

6

Zadran to Vitori, SIX, clears his front leg and launches it over long-on. He's got a right hold of this one

6

Khan to Vitori, SIX, this has probably gone out of the ground! What a mighty swing from Vitori. Came dancing down and muscled it with the turn. They were going to continue with a different ball, but the old ball has now been found

W

Khan to Vitori, out Caught by Mujeeb!! He gets it. Five for . Cleverly bowling the googly again, Vitori heaves, gets a thick top-edge and is caught at short fine. Zimbabwe rolled over for 154. Vitori c Mujeeb b Khan 15(9) [6s-2]
