    19.5 length, and he has an ugly swipe at it, and Evin Lewis takes a great catch running in from deep backward square leg. A slower ball from Paul, and Zazai's patience runs thin as he looks to go big over mid-wicket. Doesn't time it at all, and it goes a long way up. Lewis has to run in, position himself well. and then latch on to the ball after getting his fingers to it. Well done from him, and a third wicket for Keemo Paul! 74/4
    2.4 full and straight this time, swinging in to the batsman who looks to flick it away but misses, struck in front of off and middle and would have crashed into middle and leg. An easy decision for the umpire 15/1
    9.3 length ball at the batsman, the batsman looks to pull but it comes slower off the wicket. Rahmat ends up playing it awkwardly, and early, into the air. Pooran moves to his left from deep square leg and pouches it comfortably 45/2
    17.3 the off stump goes for a walk! Fuller, and straighter this time, as Ikram goes for an expansive drive. Misses out, and then the ball goes on to uproot the off stump. They're checking for the front foot, but that looks fine. Afghanistan lose a third in quick time. The lack of a significant partnership will worry them. Someone needs to give Zazai company through till the 40th over or so now 65/3
    48.5 caught at short third man. Fuller outside off, Asghar looks to go over long-off but manages only a thick outside edge and an easy catch for Shepherd. A brilliant knock comes to an end 245/6
    28.3 just reward for Roston, who cuts to the Chase! Tosses this up, a bit of drift back in, and then the ball grips as Najib stretches to defend. Just runs off the outside edge, and is gleefully accepted by first slip, diving forward. Najib is stunned for a bit, and then drags himself off the crease. It's another attractive cameo from an Afghanistan batsman, which just doesn't seem to be enough during this series 118/5

    49.6 short of length around off, backs away and swats it over midwicket but Walsh is there in the deep and an easy catch for him 249/7

    2.1 that's gone for sure! Skids on after pitching, and catches Lewis playing from the crease as he goes back to try and play it across the line. Misses the bat, gets hit on the pads, and that would have gone straight down the middle of middle stump. No doubt for the umpire, and Afghanistan have that early breakthrough they need for a defence like this one! 4/1
    2.4 two for the over! Almost a replay of the Lewis dismissal, as Hetmyer is caught inside the crease to one that angles in naturally. Bowled from closer to the stumps as well, so no doubt about where this was headed. Tentative start from Shimron Hetmyer costs him. Mujeeb Ur Rahman is rolling along nicely here 4/2
    19.2 bowled him! Always on the cards when you play back to Rashid Khan, and fail to pick his flipper. Goes on with the angle going in, and he was caught in the crease. The ball pitches, goes on with the angle, and at good pace, and breaches his defence. King can only look on in disbelief. Could this be the wicket that Afghanistan needed to reassert their supremacy? 68/3
    28.3 Pooran perishes while going for another big hit. Skipped down the track but couldn't middle it as he looked to clear long-on. A simple catch for Ibrahim near the boundary 119/4
    37.5 a soft dismissal for Pollard, a big wicket for Afghanistan. Was a length ball spinning in, Pollard just ends up flicking it straight to Najibullah at short midwicket 182/5
