W
OUT! Bowled. Lasith Malinga to Hamid Hassan. In-swinging yorker, middle stump no foot movement defending, missed to. That's it, vintage Lasith Malinga, tailing the ball back in, getting it right in the block hole and under the bat and smashing into middle stump. Sri Lanka celebrate a win but they got out of jail here. A second batting collapse in two games will have the coaches concerned but they did show real character with the ball and they took their opportunities when they came. That's it for today, goodnight from Cardiff and we'll see you tomorrow.

SIX! Lasith Malinga to Hamid Hassan. Slower length ball, outside off stump on the front foot Slog, well timed in the air under control over deep mid wicket for 6 runs. That's a huge hit, the slower ball is smashed into the stands by Hassan. Afghanistan just need six more of those.
32.2

OUT! Run Out. Isuru Udana to Najibullah Zadran. Half volley, outside off stump on the front foot driving, to extra cover, direct hit by Karunaratne. Brilliant work from the Sri Lankan captain. Najibullah wanted a run to keep the strike next over. He hit the ball to extra cover and set off. Karunaratne picked up and threw down the stumps at the bowler's end with Najibullah short of his ground. That's a killer blow for Afghanistan.

Isuru Udana to Najibullah Zadran. Slower ball back of a length, outside off stump on the front foot Slog, missed to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Perera.

FOUR! Isuru Udana to Najibullah Zadran. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, thick edge in the air uncontrolled to third man for 1 run. Four more, a big swing of the bat, a thick edge and it races away to the boundary. It's going to be a no ball too, there weren't enough men inside the circle, sloppy from Sri Lanka.
31.3
.
Isuru Udana to Najibullah Zadran. Short, outside off stump on the back foot hooking, missed to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Perera.
31.2
4
FOUR! Isuru Udana to Najibullah Zadran. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed in the air under control past deep extra cover for 4 runs. Well it looks like Najibullah is going to have a dart now and start playing a few shots. He's crashed that over extra cover.
31.1
.
Isuru Udana to Najibullah Zadran. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot pushing, missed to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Perera.

Lasith Malinga to Hamid Hassan. In-swinging full toss, middle stump on the front foot pushing, to mid on for no runs, fielded by Perera.
30.4
W
OUT! Bowled. Lasith Malinga to Dawlat Zadran. In-swinging yorker, middle stump no foot movement defending, missed. Through him, that's too good for Dawlat, the classic inswinging yorker from Malinga smashes into the base of middle stump. At the other end Najibullah is going to have to think about attacking to try and knock off the 50 runs required.
30.3

Lasith Malinga to Dawlat Zadran. Slower ball full toss, down leg side backing away working, to mid wicket for no runs, fielded by Mendis.

29.6
.
Suranga Lakmal to Najibullah Zadran. Seaming away back of a length, outside off stump no foot movement driving, missed to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Perera. Well Dawlat is having some problems out there which are really hindering his mobility. He's had some treatment but isn't able to run well between the wickets.

Nuwan Pradeep to Najibullah Zadran. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, thick edge in the air uncontrolled to deep point for no runs, fielded by Perera.
