Runs : 0 Bowler: Keemo Paul Wickets : 1
19.1
W
OUT! Caught. Keemo Paul to Mohammad Nabi. Length ball, outside off stump Deep in crease driving, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to long on, by Holder. Nabi looks to launch the ball into orbit but he had to fetch it from outside off stump so can only drag it to the safe hands of Holder. That could be a crucial moment in the context of the match, Nabi is capable of fireworks at the death.

W
OUT! Caught. Kesrick Williams to Rashid Khan. Leg cutter short, outside off stump on the back foot cutting, top edge in the air uncontrolled to short third man, by Cottrell. Carved straight to a fielder, Rashid Khan departs after just one ball faced. He is disappointed because a couple of metres either side and that would've gone for four.

W
OUT! Caught. Kesrick Williams to Najibullah Zadran. Half volley, to leg on the front foot driving, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to long on, by Pollard. Spooned tamely into the deep, Pollard is never going to miss it with his bucket-hands. Williams continues to take wickets in this series. He celebrates in the style of Megan Rapinoe.

W
OUT! Caught. Kieron Pollard to Rahmanullah Gurbaz. Off cutter short, wide outside off stump on the back foot cutting, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to deep cover, by Paul. The end of a wonderful innings. Pollard looks to hide the ball way outside off and Gurbaz tries to go with it. There is no pace to work with so it ends up falling into the hands of the fielder positioned out there. Much needed breakthrough for Pollard.

W
OUT! Caught. Keemo Paul to Asghar Afghan. Short, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to mid wicket, by King. King atones for his mistake, safely pouching this one to send the experienced Afghan on his way. Not many celebrations from the tourists, they know they have some work to do to claw this innings back after some sloppy overs.

Runs : 0 Bowler: Jason Holder Wickets : 1

W
OUT! Run Out. Jason Holder to Rahmanullah Gurbaz. Yorker, to leg on the front foot flick, hit pad to silly mid on, direct hit by Holder. Fantastic work by Holder to turn and throw down the non-striker's stumps in one smooth motion. There was confusion between the batsman as Gurbaz set off for a run without really knowing where the ball was. By the time he realised it was too late with Ibrahim committed.

W
OUT! Caught. Sheldon Cottrell to Karim Janat. Length ball, middle stump backing away driving, outside edge to wicketkeeper, by Hope. Janat looks to give himself room to free his arms but only succeeds in nicking one through to the keeper. Another salute from Cottrell, he is a beast in the powerplay. Windies on top in Lucknow.

W
OUT! Caught. Sheldon Cottrell to Hazratullah Zazai. Off cutter back of a length, outside off stump on the front foot cutting, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to cover, by Lewis. An early salute from Cottrell as he grabs the big wicket of Zazai. The left-armer ran his fingers across the ball and got it to stick in the pitch so the opener was through his shot way too early. Great start for the men in maroon.

W
OUT! Caught. Naveen-ul-Haq to Jason Holder. Slower length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to long on, by Nabi. Holder tries to use his long levers to clear long on but Nabi is perfectly positioned on the edge and comfortably gobbles it up.

W
OUT! Caught. Gulbadin Naib to Shai Hope. Leg cutter half volley, outside off stump on the front foot driving, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to extra cover, by Afghan. Straight to the fielder, Hope has to trudge off the field. He was the one man keeping things together for the tourists but he hasn't had much support. Afghanistan know they are going to cruise to victory now.

W
OUT! Caught. Naveen-ul-Haq to Kieron Pollard. Slower length ball, outside off stump on the front foot flick, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to deep mid wicket, by Zadran. This will surely be the final nail in the coffin. Pollard is capable of pulling off miracles but not this evening. Looking to clear the fence but the connection was all wrong. Afghanistan on the cusp of a series win.

Runs : 0 Bowler: Rashid Khan Wickets : 1
12.3
W
OUT! Caught. Rashid Khan to Shimron Hetmyer. Leg spinner length ball, off stump on the back foot driving, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to point, by Afghan. It's not an ideal scenario when Rashid Khan has the ball in his hand and the required run rate is rising all the time. The pressure gets too much for Hetmyer and he tamely skews one to former captain Asghar. Pollard strides out with plenty to be done.

W
OUT! L.B.W. Karim Janat to Evin Lewis. Length ball, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, hit pad to. Up goes the finger, Janat strikes for the first time tonight. Lewis walks off shaking his head, he doesn't think it was out. He was looking for his trademark pull shot, it looked a decent appeal so he can't really complain. Afghanistan on fire.

W
OUT! Bowled. Naveen-ul-Haq to Brandon King. Off cutter length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, missed to. Almost a carbon-copy of what we saw yesterday. King is completely deceived by the lack of pace on this delivery and he misses it by a distance. Afghanistan right on top now, Windies need something special.

Runs : 0 Bowler: Mujeeb Ur Rahman Wickets : 1
2.1
W
OUT! Bowled. Mujeeb Ur Rahman to Lendl Simmons. Googly back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot driving, missed to. Simmons departs, Mujeeb rearranges his stumps with a well disguised variation. Vital early breakthrough for the hosts, that will ramp up the pressure on the Windies batsmen. It's always dangerous playing Mujeeb from the crease, Simmons will regret that as his first innings for the national team for more than two years ends in failure.
