With the fall of the last week, Afghanistan have dismissed Ireland for a lowly 79 runs and complete a comprehensive victory. Afghanistan bowled brilliantly and with only two Irish Batsmen able to make it into double figures they always had their backs against the wall. Porterfield top scored with 33, yet the Irish Batsmen just couldn't cope with the Afghan spin. With eight wickets shared between them, they sure are an fantastic unit.

So Afghanistan make it seven wins on the trot again Ireland and take a two-nil series lead with only the final game to come on Friday. So I hope that you will join me then, until then this is Justin saying goodnight from Bready.
