SIX! Mohammad Nabi to Andile Phehlukwayo. Off break half volley, outside off stump down the track driving, well timed over long on for 6 runs. Phehlukwayo smashes a six into the stands to reward South Africa with their first victory of the tournament. Afghanistan will be highly dissapointed with their performance with the bat today, especially after getting off to a reasonable start. However a spell of five wickets for just eight runs meant Afghanistan slumped to 125 leaving South Africa needing 127 (D/L). South Africa didn't come out with the expected intent to improve their net run rate but steady innings from Amla and De Kock have helped South Africa to a comfortable victory

OUT! Caught. Chris Morris to Hamid Hassan. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, top edge in the air uncontrolled to silly mid on, by du Plessis. Morris picks up his third as Afghanistan stumble to 125 all out. Before the rain interrupted Afghanistan were going well, their opening partnership making 39. When the rain struck again Afghanistan found themselves 69 for 2 however when play resumed they started to collapse losing four wickets for just one run. A late cameo from Rashid Khan prevented an embarrassing collapse, but for Afghanistan it isn't looking positive as they must restrict South Africa to under 125 to win this one

OUT! Caught. Imran Tahir to Gulbadin Naib. Googly back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to mid wicket, by Markram. Naib will be dissapointed with this dismissal. Tahir drags one half way down the track which Naib rightly pulls however he pulls it at Markram who takes a fantastic catch diving to his right, Afghanistan are in big trouble here

OUT! Bowled. Andile Phehlukwayo to Mohammad Nabi. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot cutting, inside edge to. Afghanistan are struggling here as another wicket tumbles.

OUT! L.B.W. Chris Morris to Rahmat Shah. Half volley, middle stump on the front foot working, hit pad to. Morris strikes this time and the decision remains after review.
