View dismissal WTS Porterfield* b Amir Hamza 27 26 14 4 1 192.85
5.3 fuller ball on the off stump. Porterfield is deceived in flight as he makes room again to cut, but he is beaten and is bowled. A much needed wicket for Afghanistan. Needless chirping in the ear of the batsman by Shahzad 68/1
View dismissal PR Stirling c Mohammad Nabi b Amir Hamza 76 64 43 8 4 176.74
14.3 like in the final last time, Stirling is out in the seventies as he drives a full-toss straight into the hands of Nabi at cover 168/3
View dismissal KJ O'Brien c Dawlat Zadran b Karim Sadiq 20 15 12 2 1 166.66
9.1 and that's a wicket of the first ball for Sadiq as O'Brien skips down the track and lofts it to long-on where Dawlat Zadran takes the catch 104/2
View dismissal DT Johnston b Shapoor Zadran 62 44 32 5 4 193.75
18.2 fuller ball on the off stump. Johnston looks to go for the lofted shot and misses. The off stump is uprooted and suddenly Shapoor finds himself with a chance for hat-trick. Warm applause for Johnston on the way back to pavilion 212/6
View dismissal GC Wilson b Dawlat Zadran 2 7 3 0 0 66.66
15.6 that ball moves back in late and hits the middle stump. A superb delivery, regardless of the situation of the match. It would've gone past most batsmen's defense. A special delivery 183/4
View dismissal JF Mooney c †Mohammad Shahzad b Shapoor Zadran 12 14 6 2 0 200.00
18.1 short ball on the leg stump. Mooney looks to pull and gets a top edge that Shahzad takes by running back a few yards. There are no celebrations for the wicket 212/5
MC Sorensen not out 6 9 6 1 0 100.00
View dismissal JNK Shannon c Gulbadin Naib b Amir Hamza 2 6 3 0 0 66.66
19.4 fuller ball on the leg stump. Shannon lofts it to long-on where Naib takes the catch. Wickets falling in a cluster, but only after Ireland have established themselves as the firm favourites in the game 223/7
