8.4 overs (0 Run) OUT! TAKEN! What a ripper of a catch from Gulbadin Naib and the bowling change has done the trick for Afghanistan. Just a fraction shorter from Azmatullah Omarzai around the off stump. Tilak Varma looks to repeat the trick from the previous over as he swivels across and looks to pull it flat over long leg. Gulbadin Naib in the deep comes a bit too ahead and seems to have lost it in the light but does brilliantly to jump back and grab it out of thin air with both hands. Naib flexes his biceps to the crowd and Varma departs after a solid start.
