14.1 Ireland lose their first wicket. Porterfield looks to defend a ball outside the off-stump, he gets a thin edge which clips back onto the stumps. Afghanistan needed that wicket, the DL will start jumping up too 71/1
    26.3 thats a big wicket for Afghanistan, its wide of off-stump and Joyce slashes at the ball. Shahzad takes the catch and then holds his arms wide in celebration 114/2
    34.2 gets a thin edge through to the keeper 160/4
    27 Poynter is gone for a duck! Poynter went back in the crease and looks to defend forward. He misses and it hit him in front of the stumps. 114/3
    36.2 Big wicket there for Afghanistan. O'Brien hits the ball in the air to long-off. It an easy catch in the end for Ashraf as its hit straight to him. 169/5
    41.3 another one goes down. Stirling was getting bogged down and he hits the ball high towards long-on. Rashid gets under the ball, shields his eyes from the sun and takes the catch. 189/6
    43.3 goes for a sweep into the legside, gets hit on the pad and the Umpire's finger goes up 195/7
    45.4 Dockrell knows that he has to start hitting out and picks out Rashid at long-on. Afghanistan must be heavy favourites from here 200/8
    46.2 McCarthy looks to swing the ball into the legside, he misses the ball and his stumps get flattened. The End is coming soon. 203/9
    48.2 its the best connection that Murtagh got on the ball. It flies towards the long-off boundary and Naib takes the catch. Afghanistan win by 39 runs. 211/10
