Afghanistan were at 77/3 at the end of 30 overs of play. Noor Ali Zadran and Samiullah Shenwari were unbeaten at 38 and11 respectively while, Sean Williams and Sikandar Raza currently bowling their spells with figures of 5-1-12-0 and 1-0-2-0.

 

Afghanistan were reeling at 58/3 at the end of 20 overs,  with a run-rate of less than three runs per over. The next five overs proved to be dry for the Afghans as they managed to steal only six runs, with three of those overs ending as maidens.

 

The duo of Sean Williams and Prosper Utseya have impressed so far with their spin-bowling. The Zimbabwean attack hasn’t conceded a boundary for the last 75 balls and have fielded impressively so far.
