    0.1 What.A.Start to both the innings by Afghanistan! If it was the first ball six while batting, then the middle stump of Porterfield is uprooted by an yorker. Will Ireland recover and try to trade punches through these 20 overs now? 0/1
    12.5 and finally, the wicket that Afghanistan needed! Short ball outside the off stump. Stirling gets into the position early and pulls it. Naib times the jump perfectly and pulls off a stunner. Each of the Afghan bowlers seem to have a trademark celebration as Zadran thumps his chest 113/3
    3.4 fuller ball on the leg stump. Joyce flicks it all the way into the hands of Nabi at deep square-leg. Alam endures a few anxious moments before punching the air in celebration of the wicket. The crowd seems to have found its voice back 33/2
    18.1 fuller ball outside the off stump. Wilson lofts it straight into the hands of the fielder at long-off, Mirwais. And the tension boils over as Aftab speaks whats on his mind and Wilson responds but then better sense prevailed and both of them stopped brawling 150/5
    13 well its two in two now. O'Brien looks to run it down and gets an outside edge. Shahzad saves his most athletic moment of the day for this catch. he dives to his right and pulls off a stunner. Second time in two two balls that I have used the expression. Can he get a hattrick of the first ball, next over? 113/4
