    23 Big Wicket there for Ireland. Shahzad hits the ball in the air to wide long-on. Dockrell gets under the ball and takes a simple catch. Shame that, Shahzad had just started hitting out. 114/2
    15.5 what a horrible shot from Ahmadi, he had got frustrated at O'Brien's bowling and decided to charge down the pitch. He misses the ball and O'Brien hits the stumps 76/1
    25.2 that's another wicket for Ireland. Rahmat looks to clip the ball into the legside, he didn't move his feet and gets hit in front of the stumps. The Umpire Ramage raises the finger. 124/3
    38.5 Dockrell gets one to spin in on Shenwari and can't believe that he has been bowled 195/5
    26.5 oh no what has Stanikzai done? He comes down the wicket and hits the ball straight to Dockrell at mid-on. Afghanistan's captain has gone for a duck! 125/4
    43.2 that the big wicket for Ireland. Its another short ball from McCarthy, Najibullah mis-times the ball and it flies high in the air. Stirling gets under the ball at extra cover and takes the catch 211/7
    42.3 O'Brien gets his fourth wicket. Nabi wants to clip the ball through the legside, he misses and gets hit on the pad. It looked out from here and we are square of the wicket! 209/6
    47.1 what a catch from Poynter. Its another short ball down the legside and Dawlat looks to pull the ball. He gets a tiny edge on the ball and Poynter dives to his left to take the catch. Dawlat can't believe he is out and just stands there. 238/9
    46 that looks a lovely shot from Ashraf, he helps the ball towards the long leg boundary. It holds up in the wind and McBrine takes the catch. The batsmen crossed so Rashid is on strike. 228/8
    49.2 Rashid heaves the ball into the air, its flies towards McBrine at long leg. The ball starts dying on him and he has to dive forward to take the catch. Afghanistan are all out for 250 250/10

    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
