    0.4 What a perfect start for Afghanistan! Porterfield goes back to the ball, it keeps very low and his stumps get knocked over! 0/1
    16.2 and there is the big wicket. Stirling looks to get forward to the ball, the ball spins past the bat and Shahzad whips off the bails. Looks like they are checking to see if Nabi overstepped. It takes ages but the Umpires finally give it. 69/2
    34.5 Balbirnie flashes at a ball outside off-stump, Zadran dives to his left at slip and takes an excellent catch. Balbirnie is disappointed but he has to go. 144/5
    22.1 although he isn't going to be needed! Its a bit of a nothing ball from Nabi, O'Brien picks out extra cover perfectly and Ireland lose their third wicket. 87/3
    24.2 O'Brien goes back in the crease and looks to turn the ball into the legside, gets hit on the pads and its right in front of the stumps. The Umpires finger goes up as soon as they appeal. 97/4
