    1.5 and the luck finally runs out! Stirling clips the ball towards short mid-wicket, didn't hit it cleanly and Rashid takes the catch. Afghanistan will be delighted to have got rid of the dangerous Stirling so cheaply 6/1
    2.2 Thompson's innings is over, hits the ball towards long-on, Nabi races in off the rope and takes the catch 8/2
    8.2 Alam does it again! Porterfield goes down on one knee and looks to reverse sweep the ball, Alam leaps to his right at short third man and catches the ball inches off the ground. Brilliant fielding, just brilliant 46/4
    3 Make that 8 for 3! Balbirnie goes forward to the ball and just pops it back to the bowler. Terrible shot to play when his team needed him to dig in. Golden duck. 9/3
    12.4 the ball keeps a little low, Wilson looks to slog sweep the ball into the legside and the stumps are disturbed. That's the end of the Irish challenge isn't it? 66/7
    10.2 O'Brien leans back and looks to muscle the ball into the legside, It goes very high and not very far, Ghani runs in and takes the catch at mid-wicket. The batters crossed. 60/5
    11.3 Teriible shot there from Singh, went down early to sweep the ball and just ended up playing a nothing shot and is bowled. Gone for a duck and Ireland are 6 down 64/6
    13.2 Dockrell gets a better connection with this ball, its hit in the air straight to Shenwari at mid-wicket and another one has to go! 68/8
