19.6 Aftab Alam to Peter Moor. Short, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, to deep square leg for 1 run, fielded by Nabi.

Afghanistan seal victory once more, and they end the series as 2-0 winners. Mohammad Nabi was destructive with the bat, and Rashid Khan showed his class with the ball. In these conditions, the hosts just look a far better team. See if they can fair better in the 50 over format, when the five match ODI series begins on Friday.
19.5 SIX! Aftab Alam to Peter Moor. Half volley, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed in the air under control over long off for 6 runs. In the slot, and smoked back over the bowler's head for a maximum. All consolation runs now, though.
19.4 Aftab Alam to Malcolm Waller. Full toss, off stump on the front foot driving, to deep backward point for 1 run, fielded by Khan.
19.3 Aftab Alam to Peter Moor. Half volley, down leg side on the front foot flick, hit pad to point for 1 run.
19.2 FOUR! Aftab Alam to Peter Moor. Short, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, well timed in the air under control past deep mid wicket for 4 runs. Latches onto the short delivery, and spanks this over the onside for a one bounce four.

18.6 Rashid Khan to Malcolm Waller. Googly half volley, outside off stump on the front foot sweeping, hit pad to leg gully for no runs, fielded by Mohammadi.
18.5 Rashid Khan to Malcolm Waller. Googly back of a length, off stump on the back foot pulling, to deep mid wicket for 2 runs, fielded by Shafiq. Should've been a wicket, but a horrendous throw from the outfield means it isn't. Moor comes back for the second, Waller is stationary, and they both end up at the same end. All Shafiqullah has to do is throw it to the keeper, but it goes way over his head, and they complete the second run eventually.
18.3 Rashid Khan to Malcolm Waller. Leg spinner length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed to deep backward point for 1 run, dropped catch by Stanikzai, fielded by Naib.

16.4 Rashid Khan to Ryan Burl. Leg spinner half volley, off stump on the front foot driving, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to long on for 1 run, dropped catch by Shafiq.
