Ball by Ball Live Score Commentary

That’s all we have for you. From Peter and myself, we thank you for your company. Good night. But before we go…

ESPNcricinfo is proud to present Cricket Picks, a fast and fun predictor game that tests whether cricket fans can accurately pick the results of each match over the entire Cricket World Cup, along with predicting the best performers of the entire tournament.

It works over three stages, beginning with pre-tournament (now, till May 30) and up to the final.

All it takes is 60 seconds per week to predict who will win the next week’s worth of games, week by week, over the round robin stage and the finals.

Players can create their own private competitions for family, friends or work colleagues, join official competitions for fans of each nation, or just play solo against everyone else in their Cricinfo edition or globally

“Great victory. The day we are waiting. it’s a great victory for Afghanistan, the people of Afghanistan,” Gulbadin Naib says. “Start of the day, we saw the wicket, it was flat. Looks 300-plus. So credit to the bowlers. Nabi and Rashid, the way they bowled, thats why we bowled them out within 260. if you look at Pakistan, it’s one of the best sides. You can’t take anyone easily. At World Cup anything can happen, so we will do our best and the boys are very excited. I hope we do much better in the upcoming matches. Everyone knows about Afghanistan bowlers. Now the batters are also taking steps forward. So very happy. Thank you for the fans. Not just here, but all round the globe. They give energy to us. They are very proud of Afghanistan team”

“Definitely. Not enough runs on the board. 15-20 runs short. And we didn’t start well with the ball, that’s why we lost,” Sarfaraz Ahmed says. “It’s very tough if we’re losing matches. I just tell my boys to back themselves. We’re working with the coaching staff very hard. We will do well soon. Dugout is good. We just need to discuss among ourselves. Our batsmen are in good nick, we were 20 runs short, but we need to work on our bowling. Babar played a very good knock, he’s our main batsman. And we picked Wahab because of his pace and his reverse swing and he did well”

“Good win for us against Pakistan,” says Hashmatullah Shahidi. “I just wanted to go to the end and finish the game. We lost a few wickets in the middle overs. But I just wanted ot keep calm. Nabi also told me to keep calm. Pakistan pace attack is very good. But I did well and I’m very happy for that. It means a lot. We are here in the World Cup. First game was important for us and we won that and we will take advantage of that in other matches. Thanks to our fans in the crowd. They always support us and pray for us. Special thanks to them and all the fans back home”

Hamid: “Yahooooo…. Kabul is celebrating as we have won the world cup…”

James : “Here’s hoping for more games like this when the World Cup starts. “

Umer: “I still have believe in this team, they are a bunch some good cricketers, Pakistan only needs a confidence boosting win early in th world cup and we might see a complete different side of this Pakistan. For me team selection in series against Australia was a big mistake. You need wins against quality sides before world cup “

6.00 pm There was real pressure there at the end. Pakistan’s bowling attack has been dragged through the mud the last few days but Shadab Khan’s return helped them look immeasurably better in the middle overs and Wahab Riaz put a magic spell on the ball and made it reverse swing like crazy. Given all of that, Afghanistan’s mettle seeing it through and seeing it out needs to be praised. This is only their second World Cup campaign and they batted like pros.

Hazratullah Shahidi was monster; kept hitting Shaheen Afridi all round the park and when the left-arm quick tried to intimidate him with a few words, he just put his head down and asked him to stuff it.

Then, Hashmatullah Shahidi soaked in the pressure, never really panicking, not even when Wahab was breathing fire. Afghanistan were always going to throw up some surprises simply because of the talent in that squad. But they’ve shown here that they have the mettle too. The guts to see off a tense situation. The gumption to play percentage cricket and not make a mistake in the face of a quality attack and a rising required rate.

49.4 1 Wahab Riaz to Hashmatullah Shahidi late cuts it to deep third man and brings up Afghanistan’s victory. Shahidi leaps up and punches the air. The crowd scream in delight. We’ve had a fine game of cricket. But remember, none of it goes down in the record books. 1 run
49.3 1 Wahab Riaz to Rashid Khan leading edge deflects the heat-seeking yorker on middle stump away to third man. Seriously, only the edge of the edge of the bat was keeping the ball from cannoning into the very visible set of stumps 1 run
49.2 2 Wahab Riaz to Rashid Khan length ball and that allows Rashid to get under it and hoist it high over mid-off. He wants to finish the game. Use the small straight boundaries to his advantage but he’s mis-hit the shot and he thumps his bat on the ground in disappointment 2 runs
49.1 . Wahab Riaz to Rashid Khan beats him with the perfect yorker outside off. Rashid’s glide to third man doesn’t work no run

Right then. Here’s Wahab. And more reverse swinigng yorkers. He only has four runs to defend. Third man and fine leg are back. Sweeper is back. Mid-off and mid-on are up

End of Over No.49 259/7 Last Over (10 runs)

48.6 1 Shadab Khan to Rashid Khan another seam up delivery, but Rashid is ready for it too. Drills it down the pitch and Shadab gets a hand on it. Enough to deflect it to where mid-on might be for a single 1 run
48.5 1 Shadab Khan to Hashmatullah Shahidi flicks a legbreak on middle to fine leg 1 run
48.4 4 Shadab Khan to Hashmatullah Shahidi that’s seam up at 113 kph, and it’s off target! The ball is way down leg. The set batsman is on strike. And fine leg is up. You do the match. I’ll just say leg-glance from the top draw FOUR
48.3 1 Shadab Khan to Rashid Khan pulls the skidder on middle to deep midwicket 1 run
48.2 1 Shadab Khan to Hashmatullah Shahidi there’s the googly again and he mis-hits the cut shot, getting a bottom edge through the keeper’s legs 1 run
48.1 2 Shadab Khan to Hashmatullah Shahidi pulls the short ball outside off to deep midwicket 2 runs

Right then, big call bringing back Shadab. Pakistan want to see how he can handle himself in the death, in almost real match pressure

End of Over No.48 249/7 Last Over (2 runs)

47.6 . Wahab Riaz to Rashid Khan outside edge to another reverse-swinging yorker! And if not for that small mercy, Rashid Khan’s off stump would’ve been burnt to ashes. Wahab’s booked his spot in the Pakistan XI no run
47.5 W Wahab Riaz to Najibullah Zadran plumb lbw says the ump but we have a review. This is another reverese swinging yorker that becomes a low full toss. It’s way too quick for the new batsman, who’s stuck in his crease, who’s falling over on the off side as he tries to flick. Ball tracking says impact in line, wickets hitting umpire’s call and that’s that. OUT
Najibullah Zadran lbw b Wahab Riaz 1 (5m 2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 50.00

14 off 14 as Pakistan slow things down. Do Afghanistan have the mettle?

47.4 1 Wahab Riaz to Hashmatullah Shahidi full and outside off, he drives to deep point 1 run
47.3 1 Wahab Riaz to Najibullah Zadran full and wide outside off, he tries to steer it through point, but gets an inside edge towards midwicket 1 run

It’s 16 off 17 now and Afghanistan have only four wickets in hand

47.2 W Wahab Riaz to Gulbadin Naib reverse swinging yorker FTW! Wahab goes peak Wahab, the left hand slinging it down from well wide of the crease from that scary place round the wicket. Naib’s too slow to bring his bat down. He’s well beaten by the ball swinging away in the air. And the ball crashes into off stump and creates the most glorious music OUT
Gulbadin Naib b Wahab Riaz 2 (6m 4b 0x4 0x6) SR: 50.00
47.1 . Wahab Riaz to Gulbadin Naib goes round the wicket and generates reverse swing away from the right-hander. Naib is stuck on leg stump. That’s the fear a fast bowler generates and the Afghan captain is beaten outside off no run

End of Over No.47 247/5 Last Over (4 runs)

Nauman: “@ABAE – Simply speack, its his length that has changed. He is not bowling that full, limiting himself to shorter length. That has helped his economy at the cost of swing & wickets.” — Not too many fast bowlers out there who are still swinging the white ball to be honest. The thing just respond to any amount of cajoling

46.6 . Mohammad Hasnain to Hashmatullah Shahidi he knows it’s a bouncer. Knows it in his bones. So he walks right across his stumps so he can get under the ball and pull it over the wicketkeeper. Great plan. But it’s just a bit too quick for him to pull off no run
46.5 1 Mohammad Hasnain to Gulbadin Naib short and outside off, slaps it to deep point 1 run

Umer : “5-0 against Australia 4-0 against England Now losing warm up against Afghanistan Unbearable for Pakistanis ”

46.4 1 Mohammad Hasnain to Hashmatullah Shahidi full on off stump, taps it to long-on 1 run

David-Jonathan : “I know this is a warm up but my God, do I love an under dog rising. Leggggooo boys. # proteafan #lovingthis”

46.3 1 Mohammad Hasnain to Gulbadin Naib nudges a back of a length delivery on off stump through midwicket 1 run
46.2 W Mohammad Hasnain to Mohammad Nabi caught behind! With 19 runs to get, Nabi falls to the slower ball. He’s making room to lift it over the covers. But the lack of pace – along with the line, which is well outside off – makes him panic. He knows he’s too far from the ball and instincts kick in, making him lose shape and hit the ball as hard as he could. All that means he can only get a thick edge to the keeper OUT
Mohammad Nabi c †Sarfaraz Ahmed b Mohammad Hasnain 34 (57m 41b 3×4 0x6) SR: 82.92
46.1 1 Mohammad Hasnain to Hashmatullah Shahidi gets inside the line of a 141 kph bouncer at his armpit and deflects it to the right of the keeper. Originally wants to pull it, but he’ll be happy with gloving it 1 run

End of Over No.46 243/4 Last Over (7 runs)

ABAE: “I’d like to know where Amir’s pace and swing have gone. He had it when he came back after his ban – one must only see his T20 Asia Cup spell vs India to see that. What has caused the drop off? And is he looking at spells like that and trying to emulate them?”

45.6 . Wahab Riaz to Mohammad Nabi short ball outside off, he tries to ramp it, but can’t make contact no run
45.6 1 Wahab Riaz to Mohammad Nabi slides down leg as Nabi tries to flick it to long leg 1 wide
45.5 4 Wahab Riaz to Mohammad Nabi slaps a length ball outside off to the cover boundary. Poor length, top shot FOUR
45.4 . Wahab Riaz to Mohammad Nabi bouncer on off stump, Nabi sways away from it no run
45.3 . Wahab Riaz to Mohammad Nabi blocks to cover no run
45.2 1 Wahab Riaz to Hashmatullah Shahidi yep, big time reverse, into the left-hander. And Shahidi, thanks to his partner is prepared for it. He’s able to squeeze a low full toss tailing into off stump away through midwicket 1 run
45.1 1 Wahab Riaz to Mohammad Nabi low full toss outside off, steers it to deep point. Nabi immediately tells his partner that Wahab is generating reverse swing 1 run

End of Over No.45 236/4 Last Over (6 runs)

44.6 . Mohammad Hasnain to Hashmatullah Shahidi another bouncer on middle, and again he’s not keen to play it no run
