Next ball first wicket..
on field umpires unconvinced .. good call by Pakistan to review ... up till that point Afghanistan were looking decent , and Shaheen bowling wasn't all that

then another wicket same over

15 overs in 77-3

apart from the loss of 3 wickets (so far!) .... Afghanistan are batting reasonably well

They are batting well.
I am.reckon8ng that this is a belter of a wicket but if Afghanistan get a decent score it will be interesting with their 3 spinners.

20 overs left ... Afghanistan have lost another 2 wickets in the last 5 overs

scoring rate slowed down considerably ...134 -5 ..... depending on how Afghanistan play this they could be looking at a score of 280-300 .... they could also be looking at a total of 200-220

15 overs left .... 159-5 .... if the current partnership can stay there for another 5 overs, &keep the scoreboard ticking over in that time, then start going for some boundary shots, they could get 280 ish ?

10 overs to go .... 184-6 .... Afghanistan should start to accelerate their run rate ...250-280 likely, if they dont lose too many wickets in the process

1 over left .... 222-9 .... will 225 be reached or surpassed ...or will Afghanistan just fall short of batting for the full 50 overs for the first time in this WC?
