    5.3 fuller ball on the off stump. Porterfield is deceived in flight as he makes room again to cut, but he is beaten and is bowled. A much needed wicket for Afghanistan. Needless chirping in the ear of the batsman by Shahzad 68/1
    14.3 like in the final last time, Stirling is out in the seventies as he drives a full-toss straight into the hands of Nabi at cover 168/3
    9.1 and that's a wicket of the first ball for Sadiq as O'Brien skips down the track and lofts it to long-on where Dawlat Zadran takes the catch 104/2
    18.2 fuller ball on the off stump. Johnston looks to go for the lofted shot and misses. The off stump is uprooted and suddenly Shapoor finds himself with a chance for hat-trick. Warm applause for Johnston on the way back to pavilion 212/6
    16 that ball moves back in late and hits the middle stump. A superb delivery, regardless of the situation of the match. It would've gone past most batsmen's defense. A special delivery 183/4
    18.1 short ball on the leg stump. Mooney looks to pull and gets a top edge that Shahzad takes by running back a few yards. There are no celebrations for the wicket 212/5

    19.4 fuller ball on the leg stump. Shannon lofts it to long-on where Naib takes the catch. Wickets falling in a cluster, but only after Ireland have established themselves as the firm favourites in the game 223/7

    5.2 this time he is gone as he lofts it to mid-on, where Shannon who dropped the catch earlier takes the catch. Shahzad is down on his haunches as he played the stroke and takes a long time to get back to the pavilion 59/2
    3.2 moves across and looks to heave it away on the leg side. The arm-ball foxes him as he misses it and is bowled 36/1
    10.2 short ball outside the off stump. Ashraf cuts it straight to point. That's a tame end to his innings 101/5
    6.5 short on the off stump. Nabi pulls it to Stirling at deep midwicket. Afghanistan are being set back with wickets over here 76/3
    7 fuller ball outside the off stump. Sadiq slices it straight into the hands of Johnston at short third-man. Wickets doing the trick for Ireland 76/4
    12.5 moves across to the slower delivery and lofts it straight to Mooney as long-on. Johnston is delighted 129/6
    13 that's two off two for Johnston as Stirling pulls off a stunner at point to send back Shenwari 129/7
    16.1 fuller ball outside the off stump. Najibullah lofts it to cover. Porterfield while running back to take the catch slips and Mooney is at hand to take the catch 142/9
    13.5 yorker on the off stump. Dawlat can't get his bat down in time and the off stump goes for a cartwheel 138/8
    18.5 that's what they should've done long ago as Murtagh bowls a yorker and finishes the game 157/10
