    Fourth for Gulbadin!

    Maxwell falls!

    Gulbadin with his third. Brilliant start to the over. Just a single from the first three balls. 

    Gulbadin keeps it wide and Maxwell has a go at it. Thick edge and Noor takes a good low diving catch. Is that the game for Afghanistan?

    What can’t he do?

    Australia’s Pat Cummins picked up his second hat-trick in as many matches at the T20 World Cup 2024 during the Super Eight encounter against Afghanistan at Kingstown, St. Vincent on Sunday.

  • June 23, 2024 07:31

  • June 23, 2024 07:24
    AFG 141/4 in 19 overs

    Another dropped catch. Janat with a skier and Agar gets underneath it only to spill it. Not the best day in the field for the Aussies. Couple of doubles from Janat take Afghanistan past 130. Straighter one from Hazlewood. Janat looks to turn it to the leg side. Instead it skews off his edge and flies for a six. Nabi closes off the over with a four, aided by a misfield from Cam Green. 

  • June 23, 2024 07:17
    Another wicket!

    Rashid Khan promotes himself up the order. Pat Cummins with the ball. Two big shots attempted. But no bat on ball from Rashid. Cummins looks to go for a slow bounder. Above the head says the umpire. Wide given. Fuller one outside off. Rashid goes after it. Edged and just falls short of the fielder in deep. 

    Rashid jumps out of the crease looking to go big straight down. Slower ball from Cummins. Rashid mistimes it and it is an easy catch for David.

    Ibrahim Zadran c Marsh b Zampa 51 (48b 6x4 0x6)

  • June 23, 2024 07:14
    Records galore for Gurbaz and Zadran

    AFG vs AUS, T20 World Cup 2024: Gurbaz, Ibrahim become second pair to register three 100-run stands in T20 WC

    Afghanistan’s opening combination of Rahmanullah Gurbaz and Ibrahim Zadran became just the second pair to register three 100-run partnerships in T20 World Cups during the Super 8 encounter against Australia in Kingstown.

  • June 23, 2024 07:14
    Zampa gets the second

    Azmatullah Omarzai is the new batter and his stint is a short one. Tries to flat bat a length ball from Zampa, only for the ball to squeeze under his bat and crash onto the stumps. 

    Azmatullah Omarzai b Zampa 2 (3b 0x4 0x6)

  • June 23, 2024 07:07
    AFG 119/1 in 16 overs

    Gurbaz goes for another maximum. But he can only find Warner at backward square leg.

  • June 23, 2024 07:04
    AFG 109/0 in 15 overs

  • June 23, 2024 06:59
    AFG 104/0 in 14 overs

    Short and wide from Hazlewood. Slashed away for a four by Zadran to bring up the 100-run opening stand. Third of the tournament for the pair. Hazlewood goes short. Too short says the umpire. Wide. 

  • June 23, 2024 06:54
    AUS 96/0 in 13 overs

    Full from Zampa and Gurbaz goes boom. Six straight over the umpire’s head. Zampa goes for the googly next. Seems to have beaten Gurbaz’s inside edge. Aussies appeal but the umpire refuses. Review taken and there is an inside edge. Gurbaz survives. He tries to go big again by dancing down the track. Misses the ball. Wade fails to gather the ball. Gurbaz survives again. 

  • June 23, 2024 06:48
    AFG 83/0 in 12 overs

    Stoinis gets his first over of the day and Gurbaz attacks him straight away. Short ball and pulled away for a four.

  • June 23, 2024 06:34
    AFG 56./0 in 9 overs

    Zampa continues. Tossed up, driven to long off for a single. Appeals for lbw after Gurbaz misses his sweep, was outside off stump though. Swept through backward square by Gurbaz, Cummins does well at the deep to keep it to two. Four from the over. 

  • June 23, 2024 06:30
    AFG 52/0 in 8 overs

    Maxwell into the attack. On the pads, turned legside for a single. Dropped short outside off, punched to deep cover for one. Brings up the 50-run stand between the two. Prodigious turn for Maxwell, pitches on off and spins behind the batters legs.

    Cummins to continue. Short of a length, guided to short third for a quick single. Ibrahim looks to make room, Cummins follows him and hits him in the abdomen. Some medical assistance required. Four!! Back of a length again, Ibrahim swivel pulls over the leg side, falls short of deep square and Agar lets it go through his fingers. Four!! Short and wide, cut hard, Zampa tries a one-hander at third man but can’t hold on. 

  • June 23, 2024 06:16
    AFG 29/0 in 5 overs

    Hazlewood with a change of ends. Back of a length on the stumps, turned to deep backward square for one. Six!! Second six for Gurbaz. Steps down and lofts one over long on. Four!! Full on the pads, clipped through fine leg for a boundary. 

  • June 23, 2024 06:12
    AFG 17/0 in 4 overs

    Cummins into the attack. Ball clearly getting stuck in the surface, batting is going to be hard. Three dots to start the over for Gurbaz. Another one outside off is left alone by the opener. Six!! Something had to give after five dots. Gurbaz hangs back and lofts one down the ground, has enough to go over the boundary. 

  • June 23, 2024 06:09
    AFG 11/0 in 3 overs

    Agar continues. Full outside off, driven to point. Pulls the length back, defended off the back foot. Ibrahim punches one through extra cover, will get a couple. Two from the over.
