OUT! Bowled. Nuwan Pradeep to Rashid Khan. Seaming in back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot pushing, hit pad to. That's through Rashid and it's removed the off bail. Again the batsman was on the back foot and got caught on the crease. The ball flicked his pad before making contact with the stumps. Pradeep wheels away in celebration, he's turning this game around again in Sri Lanka's favour.

OUT! L.B.W. Nuwan Pradeep to Gulbadin Naib. Length ball, off stump on the back foot working, hit pad to. That's close, up goes the umpire's finger. Gulbadin was back to a ball that was well pitched up. The Afghanistan captain opts to use their review, this will be all about whether or not the ball is hitting leg stump. It's umpire's call and Sri Lanka celebrate a vital breakthrough.

That's another one for Sri Lanka, a really good piece of bowling from Pradeep. He's bowled very testing lines and lengths in this spell so far with two slips in place and has earned his two wickets. There was good bounce in this delivery and it got far too big for the push at the ball Shahidi was playing. Kusal Perara took it in two hands above his head. Afghanistan are four down now.

Well the good news here in Cardiff is that it has stopped raining. The groundsmen are out and about beginning the process of drying things up. There are a few more showers around on the radar but hopefully we should get a potential restart time before too long and an eventual winner in what will now be a reduced overs contest.

Rashid Khan to Lasith Malinga. Leg spinner length ball, to leg on the front foot glancing, hit pad to fine leg for 2 runs, fielded by Zadran, shy attempt by Mohammadi. Almost a run out as they decide late to go for the second but the throw took Shahzad away from the stumps.

OUT! Caught. Rashid Khan to Kusal Perera. Leg spinner length ball, outside off stump on the front foot reverse sweeping, Gloved in the air uncontrolled to wicketkeeper, by Mohammadi. Big appeal from Shahzad and Perera is gone too. He was looking to reverse sweep, the shot was on but the ball was too full and it just feathered the batsman's gloves on the way into the Shahzad's gloves, a good take from the big man. The Afghanistan players have all got their tails up here now, they sense they are in with a great chance in this game.

OUT! Bowled. Mohammad Nabi to Lahiru Thirimanne. Off break length ball, outside off stump on the back foot pushing, inside edge to. Chopped on off an inside edge. Very slow from Nabi, Thirimanne went back but the ball didn't bounce very high and he dragged it back into off stump. Really cunning bowling from the experienced Afghan, back into the attack and he's picked up another wicket. Conditions aren't in his favour and he still finds a way.

Start of Sri Lanka Innings. Good morning and welcome to Cardiff for match number seven of the Cricket World Cup. We have seen some great entertainment so far and I expect that to continue today with another closely fought contest between Sri Lanka and Afghanistan. In their first game Sri Lanka went down heavily to New Zealand but they will be hoping to bounce back in the way that Pakistan did yesterday when they beat England in a high-scoring encounter. For Afghanistan this game represents an opportunity to get off the mark in the tournament and their players will be eager to show their talents on the global stage.
