Tossed up on off, Warner guides it towards third man for a boundary. England is the only side, so far in this CWC19 to have a bat during the third Powerplay overs Aaron Finch c Mujeeb b Naib 66 49 balls. Finch looked to play the lofted shot over cover as the ball was delivered wide outside off-stump but just mistimed his shot and skied the ball towards Mujeeb Ur Rahman, who took a good catch in the deep.
Can Afghanistan turn this one around? This is even better. Short on middle, Finch pulls it over mid-wicket for a biggie. Brings up his 22nd ODI fifty off 40 balls and in style. Is that a right move?
Well, off-spinner Mohammad Nabi was brought into the attack and he kept it tight, conceding just 3 runs in his first over. Afghanistan need wickets, and they need them as early as possible.
When can we see Rashid coming into the attack? Aaron Finch punishes Dawlat Zadran, hitting a short-ball into the mid-wicket stands. That crisply-timed shot brings up Australia's They have got there in the 9th over.
Some good fast-bowling by Afghanistan, especially by Hamid Hassan, but Australia are cruising with Finch and Warner pushing along.

Short delivery outside off-stump is smashed down the ground over the non-striker's head for a four by Warner, his first in this innings. This is superb batting from Finch.

Afghanistan set a target of runs for CricketAus.
Australia's patcummins30 and Adam Zampa took three wickets each. Some days as a leg spinner, you get wickets and also, you can get smashed. Credit to Afghanistan, they played some fearless cricket. When batsmen play sweeps and reverse sweeps, you need to adapt.
But as I said, there are days when you get wickets but also get smashed. On the pitch and target I think it's going to suit them a bit, might skid around a bit. Starcy and Cummo bowled really well up front but I think it should skid on in the second half.
We started really well with intensity, it was lacking a bit in the middle overs but yeah, the start was really good," Adam Zampa said after Afghanistan innings. AfghanAtalan scrap their way to in CmonAussie need to win.
