Aftab Alam to Kane Williamson. Back of a length, middle stump on the back foot pulling, to fine leg for 1 run, fielded by Zazai. Williamson gets the winning runs for New Zealand. A convincing win against Afghanistan and that puts them on three wins from three, a great start to their campaign. Afghanistan now have three losses on the bounce. Some decent performances from Alam and Shahidi made the game a little more contested but New Zealand managed to pass through Afghanistan with ease.
