Commentary

5.28pm A spirited fight is what Ireland have almost always provided. Today was no different. They showed spark and scrap to get past 200, but in the end, they had conceded just too many. Afghanistan, in truth, were appalling in the Powerplay, but fought back nicely thereafter to whitewash Ireland 3-0 in the T20 series.

Presentation time.

William Porterfield: "Anytime over 200 in both innings, credit to the groundstaff. They've come hard at us and deserved the win. As much as you want to set it up in the first six, you have to finish it in the last."

Asghar Stanikzai: "We thought 180-plus was good enough. We know our strengths, in the end we have good spinners."

Mohammad Nabi is the Man of the Match

Nabi is also the best batsman of the series, Rashid Khan is the best bowler of the series

Rashid Khan is the Man of the Series

Laiqkhan Rafeh: "What a game of cricket about 450 runs"

Mohammad Nabi to Dockrell, OUT, that's the game. A slow, short delivery outside off. Dockrell slog-sweeps the ball into the hands of deep midwicket. Afghanistan's impressive run keeps chugging along. 11 unbeaten now.

Mohammad Nabi to Dockrell, 1 run, OUT, that's not one. A yorker on off, jammed down to long-on, who runs in, picks up cleanly and throws the stumps down at the bowler's end. McCarthy may not have a worse day in cricket. 0 off 0 after the most expensive figures in T20I cricket

Five sixes will do nicely for Ireland. Nabi to finish

END OF OVER:

Rashid Khan to Thompson, OUT, another one. Three in the over. Another ripping googly that isn't read by the batsman. Gets down to sweep and misses, clips the top of leg stump

Rashid Khan to Dockrell, 1 run, flicked to deep midwicket for one

Rashid Khan to Tucker, OUT, bowled 'im. Another one. Flat on leg, Tucker hurries back and misses his pull. Leg stump is hit and Ireland's impressive fight looks short, in all likelihood

Rashid Khan to Tucker, 2 runs, runs down, skews the legbreak over cover for a couple. Didn't quite get to the pitch
