Aftab Alam to Kane Williamson. Back of a length, middle stump on the back foot pulling, to fine leg for 1 run, fielded by Zazai. Williamson gets the winning runs for New Zealand. A convincing win against Afghanistan and that puts them on three wins from three, a great start to their campaign. Afghanistan now have three losses on the bounce. Some decent performances from Alam and Shahidi made the game a little more contested but New Zealand managed to pass through Afghanistan with ease.

That's the end of Afghanistans innings. Shahidi after a good knock goes for 59. He gets a thick edge on the ball trying to flick it onto the leg-side. Henry at third man takes a good catch. An innings of varying success for both teams. Afghanistan will be annoyed with their middle order not staying at the crease long enough and New Zealand will be dissapointed not to have gotten any wickets in the first powerplay. 173 the target for New Zealand which shouldn't be an issue.
