Afghanistan batting , currently 37-0 after 6 overs

match is in Taunton ( just down the road from where I am ) - weather here very changeable, sun out now after a short deluge of rain lasting ten mins, its been similar all day so far too ...Ive a feeling this match will be a stop-start affair , with probably Duckworth n Lewis having a 'say'

Ikram caught 130-7 ... Khan for 0 bowled 131-8

with 2 wickets left will Afghanistan stay at the crease for 16 overs?

Afghan's tail is starting to wag! 171-9 ...with 10 overs to go

although not Afghan's best score in this World cup, its the longest they've stayed at the crease

Blimey! if the first over is any indication NZ aren't going to hang around scoring 11 off 5 balls, after Afghanistan took a wicket with the first ball
