    • 32.4OUT! Bowled. Lasith Malinga to Hamid Hassan. In-swinging yorker, middle stump no foot movement defending, missed to. That's it, vintage Lasith Malinga, tailing the ball back in, getting it right in the block hole and under the bat and smashing into middle stump. Sri Lanka celebrate a win but they got out of jail here. A second batting collapse in two games will have the coaches concerned but they did show real character with the ball and they took their opportunities when they came. That's it for today, goodnight from Cardiff and we'll see you tomorrow.
    • 32.3SIX! Lasith Malinga to Hamid Hassan. Slower length ball, outside off stump on the front foot Slog, well timed in the air under control over deep mid wicket for 6 runs. That's a huge hit, the slower ball is smashed into the stands by Hassan. Afghanistan just need six more of those.
    • 32.2Lasith Malinga to Hamid Hassan. Short, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, missed to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Perera.
    • 32.1Lasith Malinga to Mujeeb Ur Rahman. In-swinging yorker, down leg side on the front foot flick, bottom edge to leg gully for 1 run, fielded by Perera.
    • 32.0Over 32. 9 runs. Bowler: Isuru Udana. Afghanistan: 145/9(rr 4.53)
    • 31.6OUT! Run Out. Isuru Udana to Najibullah Zadran. Half volley, outside off stump on the front foot driving, to extra cover, direct hit by Karunaratne. Brilliant work from the Sri Lankan captain. Najibullah wanted a run to keep the strike next over. He hit the ball to extra cover and set off. Karunaratne picked up and threw down the stumps at the bowler's end with Najibullah short of his ground. That's a killer blow for Afghanistan.
    • 31.5Isuru Udana to Najibullah Zadran. Slower ball back of a length, outside off stump on the front foot Slog, missed to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Perera.
    • 31.4FOUR! Isuru Udana to Najibullah Zadran. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, thick edge in the air uncontrolled to third man for 1 run. Four more, a big swing of the bat, a thick edge and it races away to the boundary. It's going to be a no ball too, there weren't enough men inside the circle, sloppy from Sri Lanka.
    • 31.3Isuru Udana to Najibullah Zadran. Short, outside off stump on the back foot hooking, missed to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Perera.
    • 31.2FOUR! Isuru Udana to Najibullah Zadran. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed in the air under control past deep extra cover for 4 runs. Well it looks like Najibullah is going to have a dart now and start playing a few shots. He's crashed that over extra cover.
    • 31.1Isuru Udana to Najibullah Zadran. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot pushing, missed to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Perera.
    • 31.0Over 31. 1 run. Bowler: Lasith Malinga. Afghanistan: 136/8(rr 4.39)
    • 30.6Lasith Malinga to Hamid Hassan. Slower ball half volley, outside off stump on the front foot defending, to silly point for no runs, fielded by de Silva.
    • 30.5Lasith Malinga to Hamid Hassan. In-swinging full toss, middle stump on the front foot pushing, to mid on for no runs, fielded by Perera.
    • 30.4OUT! Bowled. Lasith Malinga to Dawlat Zadran. In-swinging yorker, middle stump no foot movement defending, missed. Through him, that's too good for Dawlat, the classic inswinging yorker from Malinga smashes into the base of middle stump. At the other end Najibullah is going to have to think about attacking to try and knock off the 50 runs required.
    • 30.3Lasith Malinga to Dawlat Zadran. Slower ball full toss, down leg side backing away working, to mid wicket for no runs, fielded by Mendis.
    • 30.2Lasith Malinga to Dawlat Zadran. Short, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, top edge for no runs, fielded by de Silva.
    • 30.1Wide Lasith Malinga to Dawlat Zadran. Slower ball full toss, down leg side on the front foot glancing, Play and Miss (Leg Side) to wicketkeeper for 1 run, fielded by Perera.
    • 30.0Over 30. 2 runs. Bowler: Suranga Lakmal. Afghanistan: 135/7(rr 4.50)
    • 29.6Suranga Lakmal to Najibullah Zadran. Seaming away back of a length, outside off stump no foot movement driving, missed to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Perera. Well Dawlat is having some problems out there which are really hindering his mobility. He's had some treatment but isn't able to run well between the wickets.
    • 29.5Suranga Lakmal to Dawlat Zadran. Length ball, outside off stump on the back foot pushing, to short mid wicket for 1 run, shy attempt by Tillakaratna.
    • 29.4Suranga Lakmal to Dawlat Zadran. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot pushing, to extra cover for no runs, fielded by Karunaratne.
    • 29.3Suranga Lakmal to Dawlat Zadran. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot driving, to silly mid off for no runs, fielded by Lakmal.
    • 29.2Suranga Lakmal to Dawlat Zadran. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot pushing, to mid off for no runs, fielded by Karunaratne.
    • 29.1Suranga Lakmal to Najibullah Zadran. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot flick, to square leg for 1 run, fielded by Perera.
    • 29.0Over 29. 3 runs. Bowler: Nuwan Pradeep. Afghanistan: 133/7(rr 4.59)
    • 28.6Nuwan Pradeep to Dawlat Zadran. Short, outside off stump swayed away Leave, to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Perera.
    • 28.5Nuwan Pradeep to Najibullah Zadran. Back of a length, down leg side on the back foot working, to square leg for 1 run, fielded by Thirimanne.
    • 28.4Nuwan Pradeep to Najibullah Zadran. Back of a length, down leg side on the back foot working, to backward square leg for 2 runs, fielded by Tillakaratna.
    • 28.3Nuwan Pradeep to Najibullah Zadran. Short, down leg side swayed away Leave, Left to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Perera.
    • 28.2Nuwan Pradeep to Najibullah Zadran. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, thick edge in the air uncontrolled to deep point for no runs, fielded by Perera. Almost carries to Thisara Perera at deep point. He does well to stop the ball going beyond him to the boundary. In fact they don't even take one.
    • 28.1Nuwan Pradeep to Najibullah Zadran. Seaming away back of a length, down leg side on the back foot pushing, missed to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Perera.
    • 28.0Over 28. 3 runs. Bowler: Suranga Lakmal. Afghanistan: 130/7(rr 4.64)
    • 27.6Suranga Lakmal to Dawlat Zadran. Bouncer, outside off stump ducked Leave, Left to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Perera.
    • 27.5Suranga Lakmal to Najibullah Zadran. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot dropped, to gully for 1 run, shy attempt by de Silva.
    • 27.4Suranga Lakmal to Dawlat Zadran. Length ball, outside off stump on the back foot working, to mid wicket for 1 run, fielded by Tillakaratna.
    • 27.3Suranga Lakmal to Dawlat Zadran. Short, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, missed to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Perera.
    • 27.2Suranga Lakmal to Dawlat Zadran. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot pushing, to backward point for no runs, fielded by de Silva.
    • 27.1Suranga Lakmal to Najibullah Zadran. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot pushing, to deep cover for 1 run, fielded by Thirimanne.
    • 27.0Over 27. 4 runs. Bowler: Nuwan Pradeep. Afghanistan: 127/7(rr 4.70)
    • 26.6Nuwan Pradeep to Dawlat Zadran. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot pushing, mis-timed to gully for no runs, fielded by de Silva.
    • 26.5Nuwan Pradeep to Dawlat Zadran. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot pushing, missed to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Perera.
    • 26.4FOUR! Nuwan Pradeep to Dawlat Zadran. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot pushing, past long on for 4 runs, mis-fielded by Fernando, mis-fielded by Malinga, mis-fielded by Mathews. Poor from Sri Lanka, between them they had three opportunities to stop that and they all missed it. Just a little push from Dawlat and it earns him four valuable runs.
    • 26.3Nuwan Pradeep to Dawlat Zadran. Back of a length, outside off stump on the front foot driving, mis-timed to silly mid off for no runs, fielded by Fernando.
    • 26.2Nuwan Pradeep to Dawlat Zadran. Length ball, off stump on the front foot driving, hit pad to cover for no runs, fielded by Karunaratne.
    • 26.1OUT! Bowled. Nuwan Pradeep to Rashid Khan. Seaming in back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot pushing, hit pad to. That's through Rashid and it's removed the off bail. Again the batsman was on the back foot and got caught on the crease. The ball flicked his pad before making contact with the stumps. Pradeep wheels away in celebration, he's turning this game around again in Sri Lanka's favour.
    • 26.0Over 26. 1 run. Bowler: Suranga Lakmal. Afghanistan: 123/6(rr 4.73)
    • 25.6Suranga Lakmal to Najibullah Zadran. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot pushing, to short extra cover for no runs, fielded by Karunaratne.
    • 25.5Suranga Lakmal to Najibullah Zadran. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot pushing, to point for no runs, fielded by de Silva.
    • 25.4Suranga Lakmal to Najibullah Zadran. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot pushing, to extra cover for no runs, fielded by Karunaratne.

    • 25.0Over 25. 8 runs. Bowler: Nuwan Pradeep. Afghanistan: 122/6(rr 4.88)
    • 24.6Nuwan Pradeep to Rashid Khan. Half volley, outside off stump on the front foot driving, to deep cover for 1 run, fielded by Thirimanne.
    • 24.5OUT! L.B.W. Nuwan Pradeep to Gulbadin Naib. Length ball, off stump on the back foot working, hit pad to. That's close, up goes the umpire's finger. Gulbadin was back to a ball that was well pitched up. The Afghanistan captain opts to use their review, this will be all about whether or not the ball is hitting leg stump. It's umpire's call and Sri Lanka celebrate a vital breakthrough.
    • 24.4Wide Nuwan Pradeep to Gulbadin Naib. Bouncer, outside off stump ducked Leave, Left to fine leg for 5 runs. That's poor cricket from Pradeep. He gave away two wides unnecessarily from short balls in his previous over and this one goes sailing over Kusal Perera and away for five wides.
    • 24.3Nuwan Pradeep to Gulbadin Naib. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, to mid on for no runs, fielded by Malinga.
    • 24.2Nuwan Pradeep to Najibullah Zadran. Length ball, off stump on the front foot pushing, thick edge to third man for 1 run, fielded by Lakmal.

    • 23.6FOUR! Dhananjaya de Silva to Najibullah Zadran. Off break length ball, outside off stump on the front foot reverse sweeping, well timed past deep backward point for 4 runs. Takes on the reverse sweep and absolutely smokes it to the boundary. Najibullah got runs against Australia and he looks pretty confident out there in the middle.
    • 23.5Dhananjaya de Silva to Gulbadin Naib. Off break half volley, outside off stump on the front foot driving, to long on for 1 run, fielded by Tillakaratna.

    • 22.0Over 22. 6 runs. Bowler: Isuru Udana. Afghanistan: 105/5(rr 4.77)
    • 21.6Isuru Udana to Gulbadin Naib. Full toss, off stump on the front foot flick, to deep mid wicket for 2 runs, fielded by Thirimanne. This game is finely poised. To put that into perspective, the current DLS par score is 108 with Afghanistan sitting on 105.
    • 21.5Isuru Udana to Gulbadin Naib. Back of a length, down leg side on the back foot pushing, to mid off for no runs, fielded by Perera.

    • 18.2FOUR! Lasith Malinga to Gulbadin Naib. Short, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, well timed past deep mid wicket for 4 runs. That will be four more, off the back foot this time as Malinga tries to bang one in short.
    • 18.1FOUR! Lasith Malinga to Gulbadin Naib. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed past long on for 4 runs. Beautifully driven back down the ground with the full face of the bat.

    • 15.3FOUR! Thisara Perera to Najibullah Zadran. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed past deep extra cover for 4 runs. Again Najibullah gets plenty of bat on it and sends the ball running away for four.

    • 15.1FOUR! Thisara Perera to Najibullah Zadran. Back of a length, off stump no foot movement driving, in the air under control past deep point for 4 runs. Not much foot movement but a good connection sends the ball to the cover boundary.

    • 14.3FOUR! Nuwan Pradeep to Najibullah Zadran. Length ball, off stump on the front foot driving, well timed past deep cover for 4 runs. Doesn't try and hit the ball too hard, just leaning into the shot and that helps him caress it to the boundary rather than edge it to the slips.
    • 14.2Nuwan Pradeep to Najibullah Zadran. Back of a length, to leg on the back foot pushing, to point for no runs, fielded by de Silva.
    • 14.1Nuwan Pradeep to Najibullah Zadran. Short, down leg side ducked Leave, Left to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Perera. It's great to see this aggressive bowling in ODI cricket, three slips in place for Sri Lanka. Overs aren't going to be a factor today, it's runs versus wickets.
    • 14.0Over 14. 3 runs. Bowler: Thisara Perera. Afghanistan: 60/5(rr 4.29)
    • 13.6Thisara Perera to Najibullah Zadran. Length ball, off stump on the front foot pushing, well timed to deep cover for 3 runs, fielded by Tillakaratna, fielded by Thirimanne.
    • 13.5Thisara Perera to Najibullah Zadran. Length ball, middle stump on the front foot defending, to silly mid on for no runs, fielded by Perera.
    • 13.4OUT! Bowled. Thisara Perera to Mohammad Nabi. Seaming in length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, hit pad to. What a beauty from Thisara Perera. That's nipped back off the pitch, it's crept through the gate, flicked off Nabi's pad and knocked back off stump. We have a game on our hands here in Cardiff.
    • 13.3Thisara Perera to Mohammad Nabi. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot working, to short leg for no runs, fielded by Perera.
    • 13.2Thisara Perera to Mohammad Nabi. Seaming away back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot pushing, missed to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Perera.

    • 12.6Nuwan Pradeep to Gulbadin Naib. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, to extra cover for no runs, fielded by Karunaratne.
    • 12.5OUT! Caught. Nuwan Pradeep to Hashmatullah Shahidi. Short, to leg on the back foot pushing, outside edge in the air uncontrolled to wicketkeeper, by Perera. That's another one for Sri Lanka, a really good piece of bowling from Pradeep. He's bowled very testing lines and lengths in this spell so far with two slips in place and has earned his two wickets. There was good bounce in this delivery and it got far too big for the push at the ball Shahidi was playing. Kusal Perara took it in two hands above his head. Afghanistan are four down now.
    • 12.4Nuwan Pradeep to Hashmatullah Shahidi. Short, down leg side ducked Leave, Left to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Perera.

    • 10.5FOUR! Nuwan Pradeep to Mohammad Nabi. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed in the air under control past long on for 4 runs. Hits through the line and over the top. Nabi saw one in his arc and decided it was time to show some aggression.

    • 8.4OUT! Caught. Nuwan Pradeep to Hazratullah Zazai. Short, down leg side on the back foot pulling, top edge in the air uncontrolled to fine leg, by Perera. What a great catch at fine leg by Thisara Perera. To defend small totals you need to take all the half chances you get. It's the important wicket of the explosive Zazai too. He was trying to pull but couldn't control the shot and it went in the air behind square. Perera dived low to his left on the run and caught the ball in two hands.
    • 8.3Nuwan Pradeep to Hashmatullah Shahidi. Back of a length, middle stump on the back foot defending, to third man for 1 run, fielded by Lakmal.

    • 7.5OUT! Caught. Isuru Udana to Rahmat Shah. Seaming away length ball, middle stump on the front foot driving, outside edge in the air uncontrolled to first slip, by Mathews. That's out, hard hands from Rahmat Shah and Udana has got him with that angle he creates across the right-hander. It wasn't the best shot, the ball certainly wasn't there for the firm drive Rahmat Shah was attempting. The ball took the edge and Mathews pouched a regulation catch at a wide first slip.
    • 7.4Isuru Udana to Rahmat Shah. Length ball, middle stump on the front foot driving, mis-timed to extra cover for no runs, fielded by Karunaratne.
    • 7.3Isuru Udana to Rahmat Shah. Back of a length, down leg side on the back foot defending, to silly mid off for no runs, fielded by Tillakaratna.

    • 4.6Lasith Malinga to Rahmat Shah. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, to mid off for no runs, fielded by Perera.
    • 4.5Lasith Malinga to Rahmat Shah. Back of a length, off stump on the back foot defending, to short extra cover for no runs, fielded by Thirimanne.
    • 4.4OUT! Caught. Lasith Malinga to Mohammad Shahzad. Slower length ball, middle stump on the front foot flick, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to short mid wicket, by Karunaratne. That is out, caught by the skipper diving forward and Sri Lanka have their all important breakthrough. A good slower ball from Malinga bowled at the stumps and Shahzad chipped it tamely into the legside. Sri Lanka need more of those and fast.
    • 4.3Lasith Malinga to Mohammad Shahzad. Length ball, off stump on the back foot defending, to silly mid on for no runs, fielded by Karunaratne.
    • 4.2Lasith Malinga to Hazratullah Zazai. Short, to leg on the back foot pulling, top edge in the air uncontrolled to deep square leg for 1 run, dropped catch by Mendis. That's gone up, banged in short from Malinga but it's dropped in the deep by Kusal Mendis. That's the last thing Sri Lanka needed. The ball was in the air for a long time and it wasn't a difficult catch. Malinga does not look happy.
    • 4.1FOUR! Lasith Malinga to Hazratullah Zazai. Slower length ball, middle stump on the front foot Slog, well timed in the air under control past deep mid wicket for 4 runs. Once again Zazai gets that front leg out of the way and smacks the ball away to the boundary with a big swing of the bat.
    • 4.0Over 4. Power Play Fielding. 7 runs. Bowler: Suranga Lakmal. Afghanistan: 29/0(rr 7.25)
    • 3.6Suranga Lakmal to Mohammad Shahzad. Out-swinging length ball, outside off stump on the front foot Leave, shoulders arms to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Perera.

    • 3.1FOUR! Suranga Lakmal to Hazratullah Zazai. Half volley, middle stump on the front foot driving, well timed past long on for 4 runs. That early shape has died down and the full balls from the opening bowlers are being punished by these two powerful batsmen.
    • 3.0Over 3. Power Play Fielding. 5 runs. Bowler: Lasith Malinga. Afghanistan: 22/0(rr 7.33)
    • 2.6Lasith Malinga to Hazratullah Zazai. Slower length ball, down leg side on the front foot working, to square leg for 1 run, fielded by Thirimanne.

    • 2.3FOUR! Lasith Malinga to Hazratullah Zazai. Half volley, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed past deep extra cover for 4 runs. Malinga goes full looking for swing but there's none there and he gets crashed through the covers for four.
    • 2.2Lasith Malinga to Hazratullah Zazai. Full toss, outside off stump on the front foot driving, to point for no runs, fielded by de Silva.
    • 2.1Lasith Malinga to Hazratullah Zazai. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot pushing, for no runs, fielded by Karunaratne.

    • 1.2SIX! Suranga Lakmal to Hazratullah Zazai. Short, middle stump on the back foot pulling, well timed in the air under control over deep mid wicket for 6 runs. Not what was called for, short and hammered away over mid-wicket and it goes all the way, hitting the rope on the full. Pitch it up and let the ball swing.
    • 1.1NEW BALL. Suranga Lakmal to Hazratullah Zazai. In-swinging length ball, off stump on the front foot driving, missed to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Perera. Very close to hitting off stump. There's plenty of swing and things are happening for Sri Lanka.
