20 overs bowled .... 95-2

Tamim went for 36 in the 17th over, bowled by Nabi

Shakib survived an lbw after he reviewed it ( right call imo, ball hit the knee roll so was over the stumps despite being in line, it bounced a tad too high) in the 18th over

What a great little player Shakib Al Hasan is. Another 50, and might convert it into a century. God I wish he was English. One of the players of the tournament for me.

Just as I say he might convert it, he then gets out for 51. Good bowling from Mujeeb. Sorry Shakib it’s my fault.

Afghanistan 98-2 at the halfway/25 over point ... close-ish match so far

The thing is this pitch looks pretty difficult to get boundaries on. We saw Bangladesh struggling at one point to get some fours. For an inexperienced side at this level like Afghanistan it must be tough. There not rolling over and giving up though. Good for them! Easy to feel deflated when you’ve not won a match, but if they are. It’s certainly not showing!

Mujeeb Looks a really top bowler for the Afghans.

The Afghans have three or four very decent players and have shown excellent spirit. It would be great if they could win a match.

It would certainly give us some breathing space if they won this one. Tall order, but ya never know I guess.

154-6 12 overs left ... this might, just might go to the wire...IF Afghanistan can keep the wickets remaing for the most of the remaining overs
