Pathum Nissankalbw b Azmatullah Omarzai 25 11 5 0 227.27
Azmatullah Omarzai to Pathum Nissanka, OUT! PLUMB IN FRONT! Azmatullah Omarzai breaks through for Afghanistan! End of Pathum Nissanka's onslaught. Omarzai goes full and gets the ball to swing back into the right-hander, on middle, Pathum Nissanka takes his front foot forward and tries to clip it away. He plays all around it as the ball sneaks past the inside edge and pings him on the front pad. He is trapped right in front of the stumps and the umpire raises the finger. Mendis knows he is a goner and does not bother about taking the review. Afghanistan get the breakthrough they were after.
Kusal Mendis (W)c Noor Ahmad b Fazalhaq Farooqi 23 14 4 0 164.29
Fazalhaq Farooqi to Kusal Mendis, OUT! TAKEN! Fazalhaq Farooqi with a great comeback! He gets the other opener and Afghanistan will be relieved to see the back of both openers, who were taking them on. Stays over the wicket and keeps it slower, on a back of a length, around off, Kusal Mendis looks to replicate the previous shot and gets on the front foot. He fails to pick the variation and the ball sticks in the surface as well. Mendis is through his shot early and ends up lobbing it tamely to point where Noor Ahmad does the rest.
Dhananjaya de Silvac Ibrahim Zadran b Mohammad Nabi 14 14 1 0 100
Mohammad Nabi to Dhananjaya de Silva, OUT! Mr. President Mohammad Nabi removes Dhananjaya de Silva. Cleverly bowled by Nabi as he drags his length a bit more as he sees Dhananjaya de Silva jump down the track, Dhananjaya de Silva looks for the wild heave over long on but gets it off the cue end straight towards Ibrahim Zadran at long on. 
Sadeera Samarawickramahit wicket b Naveen-ul-Haq 51 42 5 0 121.43
Naveen-ul-Haq to Sadeera Samarawickrama, OUT! HIT-WICKET! Back of a hand slower one, darted halfway by Naveen-ul-Haq. Sadeera Samarawickrama swings at it and misses as the ball rolls to Rahmanullah Gurbaz behind the stumps. Sadeera Samarawickrama though on his follow through hits the leg-pole with his bat and he is adjudged hit-wicket. Sri Lanka managed to score 187 in their quota of 20 overs. 
Wanindu Hasaranga (C)c Ibrahim Zadran b Mohammad Nabi 22 9 1 2 244.44
Mohammad Nabi to Wanindu Hasaranga, OUT! IN THE AIR AND GONE! Mohammad Nabi has the last laugh! The crowd stunned in silence as Wanindu Hasaranga holes out. Mohammad Nabi stays over the wicket and bowls it flat and short, on middle and leg, Wanindu Hasaranga moves leg side to free his arms and shapes up to launch a maximum down the ground with a cross-batted shot. The ball gets big on him He fails to get the desired connection to clear the man at long on. It comes off the upper half of the bat and goes only as far as Ibrahim Zadran at long on, where he reverse cups it inches off the ropes.
Charith Asalankac Naveen-ul-Haq b Azmatullah Omarzai 4 8 0 0 50
Azmatullah Omarzai to Charith Asalanka, OUT! TAKEN! Redemption for Azmatullah Omarzai for that dropped catch! Charith Asalanka cannot make Afghanistan pay for that error. Takes pace off and angles it across the left-hander, on a good length, outside off, Charith Asalanka reaches out as he looks to go up and over on the off side. He gets undone by the slowness of the delivery and lobs it off the toe-end of the bat towards deep cover where Naveen-ul-Haq settles under it and does the rest. Sri Lanka have lost half their side and this has been some fight back from Afghanistan.

Ibrahim Zadran (C)c Maheesh Theekshana b Angelo Mathews 10 7 2 0 142.86
Angelo Mathews to Ibrahim Zadran, OUT! Angelo can not do anything wrong today. Runs with the bat and now has wickets to his name. On a length around off, was there to be hit.

Rahmanullah Gurbaz (W)lbw b Maheesh Theekshana 13 8 2 0 162.5
Maheesh Theekshana to Rahmanullah Gurbaz, OUT! TRAPPED PLUMB IN FRONT! Fuller around middle and leg, Rahmanullah Gurbaz shuffled to his leg looking for the sweep but the ball sneaks past his bat and hits his front pad. Loud appeal and the umpire raises his finger. Rahmanullah Gurbaz asks for a review. Nothing on UltraEdge and the Ball Tracking suggests three reds hence the on-field decision stays. 
Gulbadin Naibc Wanindu Hasaranga b Binura Fernando 4 8 0 0 50
Binura Fernando to Gulbadin Naib, OUT! Afghanistan falling apart in this big chase. Slower one, fingers rolled over it around off, Gulbadin Naib looks to clear mid on but lofts this straight to Wanindu Hasaranga at mid on and departs. 
Azmatullah Omarzaib Binura Fernando 0 1 0 0 0
Binura Fernando to Azmatullah Omarzai, OUT! This right here might well be the game done and dusted for Afghanistan. On a length going across the batter, Azmatullah Omarzai looks to hit this away from his body, gets an inside edge onto the off-pole. Azmatullah Omarzai departs on a golden duck 
Mohammad Nabic Kusal Mendis b Dasun Shanaka 27 17 1 2 158.82
Dasun Shanaka to Mohammad Nabi, OUT! EDGED AND GONE! Dasun Shanaka gets his man! Mohammad Nabi goes and with him go down Afghanistan's hopes. On a length, outside off, Mohammad Nabi stays put and swings to go back over the bowler's head. He only manages to get an outside edge that travels quickly to the right of the keeper. Kusal Mendis reacts well and takes a sharp catch. Dasun Shanaka gets in on the wickets column and Afghanistan slip further.
Karim Janatc Dasun Shanaka b Wanindu Hasaranga 28 23 2 1 121.74
Wanindu Hasaranga to Karim Janat, OUT! Just like that Afghanistan are 8 down now.

Najibullah Zadranb Wanindu Hasaranga 9 15 1 0 60

Matheesha Pathirana to Naveen-ul-Haq, OUT! CASTLED! Matheesha Pathirana has done what he does best! He goes through the defence of Naveen-ul-Haq and Sri Lanka are now a wicket away from sealing the series. Angles it in, on middle and leg stump line, on a fullish length.
