    2.3 fuller ball outside the off stump. Porterfield went for the drive and gets an outside edge to the gully fielder. Just the start Afghanistan needed. Superb bowling by Dawlat 8/1
    19.5 fuller ball on the off stump. He is looking to play on the back foot and for the turn. He was beaten on both counts. It was a straighter one and he should've been forward. Ireland slide further 38/4
    14.4 good length ball outside the off stump. He looks to defend it and gets an outside edge back to the keeper. That's a tame end and Ireland are struggling 26/2
    19.2 fuller ball on the middle stump. Anderson looks to flick it away and misses. It is hitting him in front of the middle stump. Anderson gone without making a contribution this time around 37/3
    24.4 fuller ball outside the off stump. He has decided in his mind to dictate terms to Rashid. He gets a top-edge and Zazai runs to his right and takes the catch 56/5
    28.4 after struggling with the sweep for a long time, Wilson misses a ball on the leg stump and is plumb in front. Ireland are folding up without a fight here 69/7
    27.3 short on the middle stump. He pulls it straight into the hands of the fielder at deep midwicket. Ireland needs someone to show some spine. They are folding up too early, much to their own embarrassment 69/6
    33.2 comes down the wicket and tamely lofts up a catch to mid-on. Dawlat accepts the offering with glee and Afghanistan inch closer to victory 83/8
    40 and it's all over! Bowls one outside the off stump. He looks to defend it and gets an outside edge to Shahzad at first slip. He takes a catch finally and Afghanistan win by innings and 172 runs 104/10
    35.2 good length ball outside the off stump. He looks to skip down the track and loft it away. He misses and Zazai whips the bails off in a flash 83/9
