March 13, 2015
SYDNEY - Afghanistan were at 111 for seven against England when the rain delayed the match at Sydney Cricket Ground on Friday. Afghanistan innings highlights 1st over - James Anderson takes the new ball from the Paddington end. Openers Nawroz Mangal and Javed Ahmadi get off the mark with singles. AFG: 6-0 2nd over - Stuart Broad opens from the Randwick end with a wide. Mangal edges his second delivery but it does not carry to the cordon. AFG: 10-0 4th over - Mangal survives a big appeal for caught behind off Broad. England decide not to review. AFG: 16-0 7th over - Mangal departs for four, caught in the slips by Joe Root from a short Anderson delivery. AFG: 20-1 8th over - Broad's outswinger induces Ahmadi (7) into an edge and Root again does the honours at slip. AFG: 20-2 9th over - Heavy rain shower forces the players off the pitch with one ball of the over remaining. Play resumes 40 minutes later with no loss of overs and no need for Duckworth-Lewis calculations. AFG: 24-2 10th over - Chris Jordan comes into the attack and bowls a maiden to Nasir Jamal. AFG: 24-2 12th over - Jordan strikes to remove Afsar Zazai caught behind for six. Dangerman Samiullah Shenwari is the new batsman. AFG: 26-3 13th over - Shenwari hits the first boundary of Afghanistan's innings to mid-off. Anderson is warned for encroaching on the danger area. AFG: 32-3 16th over - Shenwari falls for seven, driving at a Jordan delivery but only succeeding in getting a thick edge which Eoin Morgan dives to catch at point. AFG: 34-4 20th over - Jamal is given out caught behind off Jordan. Afghanistan review and the TV pictures show the ball went nowhere near bat or glove. Decision overturned. AFG: 45-4 25th over - Three singles take Afghanistan past 60 runs but the rain starts falling again and the players head for the dressing room as the covers go back on the wicket. AFG: 62-4 26th over - Match resumes after another 40-minute rain break. Contest reduced to 45 overs for each side. Ravi Bopara removes Jamal (17) caught behind with the fourth ball after the resumption. AFG: 65-5.–Reuters
