9.6 overs (0 Run) Serves a flatter ball, on middle. Defended out.
DRINKS! The Afghanistan opening pair of Mohammad Shahzad and Hazratullah Zazai got them off to an absolute flier. Shahzad fell but Zazai still went after the bowlers and now, with him being dismissed at the halfway mark, it's an opportunity for Scotland to make further inroads. The innings is set up for a mouth-watering second half. Also, Najibullah Zadran is the new man in.
9.5 overs (0 Run) OUT! TIMBER! Scotland needed that very badly as the dangerous Zazai goes back! Watt who actually is a spinner serves it on 107 clicks and nails his yorker angling on middle. Hazratullah Zazai gets beaten by the pace. He gets an inside edge as he looks to jam it out and the ball ricochets it back on the wooden sticks behind.

8.6 overs (2 Runs) In the air but safe! A short ball, on middle, another slower ball. Hazratullah Zazai is too early on his pull shot and gets a top edge to deep backward square leg. The fielder runs to his right, runs over but does well to stop it. Two runs taken. 12 coming of it.
