19.5FOURDwayne Bravo to Najibullah, FOUR, that was surreal, more because the ball that was bowled to deny Zadran the room has been driven. through extra cover. Zadran was making room, Bravo followed him and Zadran outsmarted by making more room. Then used his hands to shave a drive through the off-side122/7
19.1FOURDwayne Bravo to Najibullah, FOUR, what if I say that it's the wristiest sweep-pull I have seen? And what if it was a reverse sweep-pull? Sees a full toss down leg, winds up with his bat reversed and swipes it wide of backward point116/7
19SIXA Russell to Rashid Khan, SIX, that's mighty. Rashid Khan is facing his first ball and see what he does. Stays back to this full length delivery and smokes it over Russell's head112/7
18.1OUTA Russell to Shafiqullah, out Caught by Andre Fletcher!! That looked headed to the old Nagpur stadium but it was more into the stratosphere. Full delivery, Shafiq made room and swung. Just swung. Got under it too well in the end as he could only manage height on this. Deep mid-wicket settles under this skier and latches onto it sanely. Shafiqullah c Andre Fletcher b A Russell 4(4)103/7
17.2FOURDwayne Bravo to Najibullah, FOUR, *insert a bravery and luck quote*. A Bravo special off-cutter, rips away to take the outside edge as Zadran swings powerfully. Squirted to the third man fence97/6
16.3OUTA Russell to Nabi, out Caught by Samuels!! Superman vs Batman? It's Superman and Batman here at Nagpur. Low full toss, Nabi flat-batted it with all his might and then rest will be into the comics. Sammy puts on a jet pack at short-cover, dives mid air and tips the ball towards mid-off, where Samuels has the easiest of grabs to take. Lovely tag-team work and a full toss fetches a wicket. Nabi c Samuels b A Russell 9(8) [4s-1]90/6

19.3OUTNabi to Brathwaite, out Caught by Najibullah!! It's a full toss. It's Brathwaite's supper. And he has heaved it in the air. Oh wait. Why is the deep mid-wicket fielder running across? It's coming down, the ball is coming down and Najib has plucked off a brilliant running catch. He tumbles and tumbles on the turf almost like soaking in the glory. Brathwaite c Najibullah b Nabi 13(8) [6s-2]114/8
18.5SIXNaib to Brathwaite, SIX, Carlos Brathwaite, wow. Another biff and it's outta the park. Shahzad is on his haunches. Full toss on middle and leg and Brathwaite pummels it with a brutal smite113/7
18.4OUTNaib to Sammy, out Caught by Shenwari!! And Naib hits back. The West Indian captain is gone. Full and wide ball outside off, Sammy reaches out looking to loft it inside out, and picks out the man at deep cover. This match keeps swinging. And so do the celebrations from Afghanistan. Sammy c Shenwari b Naib 6(10)107/7
18.2SIXNaib to Brathwaite, SIX, oh he's done it again. He's done it again. Carlos Brathwaite just walks out and thumps sixes in pressure situations. He knocked the wind out of South Africa in their final over. And now again. Naib misses with a wide yorker, by around six inches, and is clobbered with a ruthless swing over long-off106/6
17.3OUTShenwari to A Russell, out A Russell Run Out!! 1 run completed! This is chaos. Sheer chaos. "The thing about chaos is that, it's fair". I'm drifting into Batman mode as West Indies need a saviour. Firstly, it's an excellent ball from Shenwari after seeing Russell charge at him, fired it well wide outside off. Then Russell did well to stretch out and squeeze it through the covers. Sammy has settled for the single, but Russell is scampering down the pitch for a second. The throw is at the keeper's end and you'd think the chance is gone. Na, na, na. Not when the keeper is Shahzad. He collects and fires the stumps down at the non-striker's end to catch him short despite a dive. A Russell run out (Rashid Khan/Mohammad Shahzad) 7(9)98/6
16OUTRashid Khan to Ramdin, out Stumped!! Brilliant from the 17-year old. What composure in this pot-boiler. Tosses the googly wider after seeing Ramdin charge at him. Makes him reach out for the slog and then gets it to snake back in past the inside edge for an easy stumping. Look at the cheek he's got! Celebrates by doing a jig from Bravo's "Champion" track. Ramdin st Mohammad Shahzad b Rashid Khan 18(24)89/5
