* In the last over of the match comes the controversy as Shadab Khan has been Mankaded, It's controversy Mankad incident by the bowler Fazalhaq Farooqi, observed that the non-striker batsman Shadab Khan was venturing out of the crease too much and the bowler wasted no time in taking the bails off at the bowler's end. As always, the debate will go on as many feel that Mankading is against the spirit of the game but International Cricket Council (ICC) have kept it legal.

* Fazalhaq Farooqi has run Shadab Khan out backing up!. Afghanistan are celebrating but Shadab Khan waits. Fazalhaq Farooqi runs in from over the wicket but does not bowl and before he gets into his delivery stride, Shadab Khan was out of the crease. Fair dismissal, the TV umpire agrees.
