Naveen-ul-Haq to Khary Pierre. Slower length ball, outside off stump on the front foot Slog, missed to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Gurbaz. Afghanistan have clinched the T20I series against the West Indies 2-1 thanks to a comprehensive 29 run victory this evening in Lucknow. Rahmanullah Gurbaz got them going with a powerful 79, hitting five towering sixes despite losing wickets at the other end. He rode his luck at times but cashed in to register a career best in this format. West Indies never really got going in response. Chasing 157, Shai Hope tried to hold the innings together with the required run rate always on the rise. In the end the target was too much with parsimonious Afghanistan spin complemented by Naveen-ul-Haq's wily variations. We swap from white ball to red on this tour now, with the Test match scheduled to start at this same venue in ten days time.

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.

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.
