  • 41.5GDockrell to NZadran

    SIX! All over, finally. AFGHANISTAN WIN BY 5 WICKETS! Dockrell serves a flighted full ball around leg, Najibullah turns and dispatches it over mid-wicket for the winning runs.
  • 41.3GDockrell to NZadran

    SIX! Lusty blow! Floated and full around middle and off, Zadran kneels down and launches it over long on for a biggie.
  • 41.2GDockrell to GNaib

    OUT! Catching practice for the bowler! Naib won't get his fifty. A soft dismissal really. A flighted ball around middle and leg, Gulbadin tries to flick but closes the face of the bat early. It flies back to the bowler off the leading edge and Dockrell makes no mistake in his followthrough. Less than 10 runs needed for a win.
  • 40.6BRankin to GNaib

    FOUR! A high full toss around leg, Naib turns and deflects it fine down the leg side for a boundary. Lucky it wasn't called a no ball for height. 16 from the over, 10 more needed.
  • 40.5BRankin to GNaib

    SIX! High and handsome, into the night sky. Rankin delivers another short ball and this time Naib is ready for it. As soon as the ball reaches in his half, Naib dismisses it over mid-wicket for a maximum.
  • 40.1BRankin to GNaib

    FOUR! Neat and tidy! Too full in length on off, Naib climbs onto it and with mid on up inside the circle, he just lofts it over the infield for a boundary.
  • 38.4BRankin to GNaib

    FOUR! Brilliant shot! Once again from the bat of Gulbadin Naib. He just stands firm inside the crease, takes a short ball from around off and smashes it over mid-wicket.
  • 36.6BMcCarthy to GNaib

    FOUR! Third boundary in the over! The fielder continues to be up and Naib takes full advantage. Fetches a shortish length ball from outside off and lifts it over wide mid on for a boundary. 12 from the over, 36 needed more.
  • 36.4BMcCarthy to GNaib

    FOUR! Two in two! A bit overpitched this time, around off, Naib once again attacks it with all his might and thwacks it over mid on for a cracking boundary. He has decided to shift gears now.
  • 36.3BMcCarthy to GNaib

    FOUR! Shot! McCarthy puts this one in the half for the batsman to have a real go at it. It's around off and Naib swings it over mid-wicket for a boundary.
