    6.5 he has holed out there! deceived in the air as Nabi slowed it up and shortened his length, caught Stirling high on the bat as he attempted a slog sweep, only managing to get it as far as the deep squareleg, who held on to the skier comfortably 39/3
    4.3 length, angled in, playing on the batsman's patience and that's rich reward for consistent bowling, as the batsman is forced to take a chance. Backs away and swings to the leg side, only managing to loft it straight down long-on's throat. 23/1
    5.5 that's close and given! Fuller length, nipping back in and he was rooted to the crease, beaten by pace and movement to be caught plumb in front 33/2
    11.2 bowled around his legs. Looking for the sweep, goes too far across and Rashid fires it on leg stump, which is left exposed 65/5
    8.4 down the wicket and he goes too early, Nabi spots him and fires it outside off, for the keeper to complete the formality 52/4

    11.4 another attempted sweep and that's terrible idea against Rashid who always bowls wicket-to-wivcket. Full on off, too flat and quick for the batsman who misses and is caught plumb in front 65/6

    3.3 the trap has worked this time. Short of length on the stumps, Zazai cannot help the pull. A neat connection but doesn't get the elevation and ends up hitting straight to Thompson at deep square leg 30/2
    1.2 first wicket for Ireland. It fuller outside off again, Asghar looks to smash it through covers, but the swing means he can only get a thick outside edge and Getkate pouches an easy one at point 16/1
    5.6 length around off, looks to smash it over the bowler's head but the bat turns in his hands and KOB takes a good low catch, tumbling to his left at mid-on 43/4
    3.6 Rankin strikes again! Short of length outside off, Karim goes for the pull but ends up skying it high in the air and Dockrell completes the catch near short midwicket. Afghanistan in trouble here 30/3

    7.2 length around middle, a legcutter, Ashraf was looking to work it on the leg side, gets a leading edge that skies towards third man where Josh Little moves to his right and completes the catch, Afghanistan in trouble 50/5
