    Khary Pierre is the next batsman in.

  • 10:33 PM IST

    19.2 Naveen-ul-Haq to Jason Holder, out, OUT! Caught! Another wicket for Naveen-ul-Haq. Good length ball outside off, Holder looks to clear the long on fence. He does not time it well and it goes to Mohammad Nabi there who jumps and takes a good catch. This has been a very good bowling display from young Naveen. His 3rd of the game.

  • 10:33 PM IST

    19.1 Naveen-ul-Haq to Keemo Paul, 1 run, Extremely full and on off, this is hit down to long off for one. So even 5 sixes won’t do it now. Afghanistan just don’t have to bowl an extra.

  • 10:31 PM IST

    18.6 Gulbadin Naib to Keemo Paul, 1 run, A yorker on middle, this is jammed out to long on for one. Excellent over by Naib. 34 needed in the last 6. Mathematically possible but don’t see it happening.

  • 10:31 PM IST

    18.6 Gulbadin Naib to Keemo Paul, wide, 1 run, Goes for another slower one but this is way too wide outside off. Paul once again swings extremely hard but misses. Wided this time though.

  • 10:30 PM IST

    18.5 Gulbadin Naib to Keemo Paul, no run, Another swing and a miss! One more slower one outside off, it stays very low again. Paul looks to go over mid-wicket but misses.

  • 10:30 PM IST

    18.4 Gulbadin Naib to Keemo Paul, no run, Now shows his variation! A slower one, bangs it into the surface and bowls it outside off. Paul looks to hit it across the line but is foxed by the pace.

  • 10:29 PM IST

    18.3 Gulbadin Naib to Jason Holder, 1 run, Extremely full again outside off, not easy to hit those out of the park. Holder hits it down to long off for one.

  • 10:29 PM IST

    18.2 Gulbadin Naib to Keemo Paul, 1 run, Slower one outside off, this is dragged down to long on for one.

  • 10:28 PM IST

    18.2 Gulbadin Naib to Keemo Paul, wide, 1 run, Full and wide outside off, Paul lets it be and it has been wided.

  • 10:28 PM IST

    Keemo Paul is the new batsman in.

  • 10:28 PM IST

    18.1 Gulbadin Naib to Shai Hope, out, OUT! Straight to the man! That is probably game, set and match. The well-set Shai Hope is out of here. This is full and outside off, Hope looks to go over covers but the ball is a little too full to get under it. He ends up hitting it straight to Afghan there. It went to him quickly but he hangs on. A good innings by Hope but he was probably Windies’ only hope. 39 needed in 11 balls with two new batters out there.

  • 10:26 PM IST

    Gulbadin Naib to bowl out. 3-0-21-0 are his figures so far.

  • 10:25 PM IST

    17.6 Naveen-ul-Haq to Jason Holder, FOUR, FOUR! Much-needed one for the Men in Maroon. Spoils an otherwise good over. Short ball on off, Holder stays on his back foot and pulls it over cow corner. The fielder from long on runs and stretches to his right but cannot stop the ball from going to the fence. Still a good over. Just 7 runs off it but more importantly the big wicket of Pollard.

  • 10:24 PM IST

    17.5 Naveen-ul-Haq to Shai Hope, 1 run, Fuller on middle, Hope milks it to long on and gets to the other end.

  • 10:24 PM IST

    17.4 Naveen-ul-Haq to Jason Holder, 1 run, Around the pads, Holder flicks it through mid-wicket for one.

  • 10:23 PM IST

    17.3 Naveen-ul-Haq to Jason Holder, no run, Good length ball outside off, Holder looks to cut but misses.

  • 10:22 PM IST

    Jason Holder is the new batsman in.

  • 10:22 PM IST

    17.2 Naveen-ul-Haq to Kieron Pollard, out, OUT! Pollard holes out! Is this the end of West Indies’ charge? Pollard went for the big one, he had to go for this one. It is full on off, the ball keeps a bit low. The West Indies skipper looks to heave it over the mid-wicket fence. He cannot get under it and he ends up finding the man in the deep to perfection. Najibullah Zadran there makes no mistake and takes a simple catch.

  • 10:21 PM IST

    17.1 Naveen-ul-Haq to Shai Hope, 1 run, Short delivery on middle, Hope pulls it through mid on. The batsmen take a single.

  • 10:20 PM IST

    Naveen-ul-Haq is back on. 2-0-13-1 are his figures so far.

  • 10:20 PM IST

    16.6 Rashid Khan to Kieron Pollard, 2 runs, That is a tremendous effort in the field! Rashid tosses it up outside off, Pollard drags it towards wide long on. Nabi runs to his right. The ball seems to be going for a boundary but Nabi stretches one hand out and pushes it back in. Saves two for his side. Such efforts can make the difference in the end. Just the 7 from Rashid’s last. The skipper bowls a brilliant spell, his figures read 4-0-18-1.

  • 10:19 PM IST

    16.5 Rashid Khan to Kieron Pollard, leg byes, 4 runs, FOUR LEG BYES! A welcome boundary, it is not off the bat but the hosts won’t care. It is a googly this time on middle, Pollard does not pick it as he goes back to play it on the off side. It turns back in, kisses the pads and goes past the keeper to the fine leg fence.

  • 10:18 PM IST

    16.4 Rashid Khan to Kieron Pollard, no run, One more dot and this is a rippa. A leggie on off, it pitches and turns away. Pollard maybe expecting a googly as he defends inside the line. Gets beaten.

  • 10:18 PM IST

    16.3 Rashid Khan to Shai Hope, 1 run, Very full and outside off, this is hit down to long off for one. Fifty up for Hope, however, his job is not yet done.

  • 10:17 PM IST

    16.2 Rashid Khan to Shai Hope, no run, One more dot! On off, it is defended towards cover.

  • 10:17 PM IST

    16.1 Rashid Khan to Shai Hope, no run, Shorter in length and outside off, Hope looks to cut but there is extra bounce and turn which beats the bat.

  • 10:15 PM IST

    15.6 Karim Janat to Kieron Pollard, 2 runs, Two taken off the final delivery! Pollard takes a few steps down the track and then flicks it wide of the fielder at deep square leg. 8 runs from the over. 53 needed in 24 balls. Not going to be easy this with Rashid and Mujeeb having one left.
