    31.5 now Shahzad looks to go over the bowler's head, it was tossed up a bit, Shahzad was shuffling in his crease, never a stable base but looks to go for a six. Doesn't middle it though, O'Brien takes a couple of steps to his left at long-on and grabs another one 176/3
    3.1 full and holds its line outside off, Noor Ali aims to clear mid-on. No dice. He can only chip it to the fielder on the edge of the circle 25/1
    31.1 caught at long-on. Use of feet by Rahmat Shah, reaches to the pitch of the ball and goes aerial but fails to clear Kevin O'Brien. An easy catch there for the allrounder 175/2
    37.4 another batsman perishes while looking to clear long-on. Length ball around off, Asghar comes down the track and goes aerial. An easy catch for McBrine there 204/4

    40.3 Top-edged to short midwicket! Rankin runs in hard and hits the pitch harder. He rushes Naib into a hook. He skies it and it drops into the hands of a tumbling Stirling 212/5

    17.5 dug in short and outside off, Stirling aims for the pull and picks out Rashid Khan at deep square leg. Straight into the lap of the outfielder 84/3
    6.4 and he does go for the big shot but fails to middle it, ends up lobbing it to mid-off where Naib takes an easy catch. Was a length ball around off but the dot-ball pressure worked in the bowler's favour 29/1
    16 on a length and on a sixth-stump line outside off, not quite full enough for a drive. Balbirnie still goes for the strike and sends a thin edge behind to the keeper to leave Ireland two down 77/2
    26.1 another bouncer and this time it does the trick. Porterfield pulls it in the air, makes a fine connection but Rahmat Shah runs to his right and takes a good catch, it was hit firmly 117/5
    21.5 Asghar Afghan takes a tumbling catch to his right. Short of length outside off and O'Brien pulls it off the front foot but fails to keep it down and Asghar takes a neat catch 102/4
    41.2 and that's the sixth wicket for Naib. A slower one around off, swipes it across but cannot clear Rashid at midwicket 179/10
    27.2 length outside off, McBrine plays back, gets an inside edge towards short fine leg, looks for a single but he's struggling there, Rashid collects the ball in front of the stumps and dislodges the bails to find the batsman short 119/6

    37.3 slower one on the stumps, looks to work on the leg side and misses. An appeal for lbw and given 163/8
    38 and that's fifer for Naib. Fuller around off, looks to go aerial but cannot clear mid-off, Asghar Afghan pedals back completes the catch 163/9
