Fall of wickets: 1-41 (Rahmanullah Gurbaz, 8.1 ov), 2-41 (Ibrahim Zadran, 9.3 ov), 3-45 (Hashmatullah Shahidi, 10.5 ov), 4-94 (Rahmat Shah, 23.5 ov), 5-112 (Ikram Alikhil, 26.5 ov), 6-116 (Mohammad Nabi, 27.4 ov), 7-160 (Rashid Khan, 37.5 ov), 8-204 (Noor Ahmad, 45.6 ov), 9-226 (Mujeeb Ur Rahman, 47.4 ov), 10-244 (Naveen-ul-Haq, 49.6 ov) • DRS
23.5 to Rahmat Shah, takes him five attempts probably, but Miller gets it done! Length outside off. Rahmat tries to drive on the up but cannot keep his shot down. The ball flies off the outer half of the bat towards Miller at backward point. Seems a fairly regulation chance but Miller fumbles at the first attempt. The ball then pops out and he performs a sweet, little juggling act before eventually holding onto the chance, inches off the turf. Afghanistan lose their fourth!. 94/4
27.4 to Mohammad Nabi, is there a nick?! South Africa think so but the umpire does not! Back of a length outside off. Seems to zip through off the surface and Nabi, without any foot movement, wafts at it. de Kock and Ngidi feel that Nabi has feathered this through to the keeper. The umpire is unmoved, and South Africa, unsurprisingly, go upstairs. And they are vindicated. There is a clear spike when the ball is next to the outside edge of the bat, and Afghanistan slider further!. 116/6
9.3 to Ibrahim Zadran, Coetzee is pumped and why not. A beautiful sight of a fast bowler being aggressive there. Short ball going down leg and Zadran's pull has been edged to the keeper moving to his right. 41/2
26.5 to Ikram Alikhil, gets him with a fuller length now! Not quite full per se but much fuller than the previous ball. Alikhil, after seeing the ball whistle past him the previous delivery, is caught on the crease and pokes at it without any footwork. Feathers it through to de Kock, who pouches a smart, low catch. Coetzee has his second, and Afghanistan are in a lot of trouble now!. 112/5
45.6 to Noor Ahmad, Quinton de Kock - third keeper to take six catches in a men's ODI World Cup match, after Adam Gilchrist and Sarfaraz Ahmed. Noor attempts the pull against a searing short ball, and gets a glove to the wicketkeeper. 204/8
47.4 to Mujeeb Ur Rahman, short ball gets big on Mujeeb as he attempts the pull. Hurried on as well, and all he can do is slice a catch to mid on. 226/9
8.1 to Rahmanullah Gurbaz, wicket first ball! Full ball around off from around the wicket. Bit of turn away as Gurbaz presses forward. Takes an edge and Heinrich at first slip swoops down to take it. 41/1
10.5 to Hashmatullah Shahidi, Maharaj is on a roll! Length ball outside off and he attempts a cut, but there's no turn, however there's some extra bounce. The cut's been edged behind. 45/3
37.5 to Rashid Khan, short ball rising up. Doesn't stop Rashid from pulling, but this has taken an edge to de Kock. That's his fifth catch!. 160/7

TOTAL47.3 Ov (RR: 5.20)247/5
Fall of wickets: 1-64 (Temba Bavuma, 10.6 ov), 2-66 (Quinton de Kock, 13.1 ov), 3-116 (Aiden Markram, 23.1 ov), 4-139 (Heinrich Klaasen, 27.3 ov), 5-182 (David Miller, 37.1 ov) • DRS
10.6 to T Bavuma, holes out to deep square leg! Bavuma's troubled stay comes to an end! Back of a length delivery at the stumps that seems to hurry onto Bavuma a touch. He tries to heave it over deep square leg but does not get the power or the elevation he is after. Arrows it straight to Gurbaz, who does the rest!. 64/1
13.1 to Q de Kock, big appeal! Length delivery angled into off stump. de Kock looks for the reverse sweep and seems to make no contact. Gets pinned on the pads but the umpire is unmoved. Afghanistan, though, are convinced and go upstairs. The glove seemed very close to the ball, and the impact could be an issue too. Nothing on UltraEdge. Ball Tracking coming up now....and it returns with three reds. Impact in line, and the ball was going on to hit leg stump. de Kock has to go!. 66/2
37.1 to DA Miller, the softest of dismissals! Fires it in on a back of a length on middle and off. Stops on the surface and just does not arrive. Miller is too early into the stroke and all he does is pop it straight back to Nabi, who crouches down low and completes the catch. Is there a twist left in this tale?. 182/5
23.1 to AK Markram, good length ball on off. Turning away. Markram rocks back to pull. Top-edged, and taken by cover running in. 116/3
27.3 to H Klaasen, big fish is gone! And dare I say... game on. Off stump rattled, as Klaasen goes back to cut Rashid, but his googly lands on a good length just outside off and the subtle turn does the rest.. 139/4
