24.6 overs (1 Run) Outside off, driven through the covers for a single.
24.5 overs (0 Run) OUT! LBW! Massive moment in the game and the well-strung partnership has been cut short. On a length outside off, Naib stays back to defend but the ball pitches and then shoots through. The skipper is hit on the pads and up goes Pradeep in an appeal. Umpire Wilson thinks for a while and then raises his finger! Naib almost immediately takes it upstairs but Hawk Eye shows the ball to be clipping the outer half of leg stump, which means, the umpire's call will stay! Naib has to walk off. Afghanistan do not lose a review but they are back in a spot of bother. 66 more needed from 97 balls.

23.4 overs (1 Run) Mix-up, but safe! Down the leg side, Najibullah tickles it towards short fine leg and sets for a single but then stops.
