    24.3 leans forward to play the ball in to the leg-side but gets his angles all messed up and the ball clips off the bails, 18 ball duck 86/6
    36.4 gone! Breakthrough for Afghanistan as Coughlan tries to play leg-side but gets a thin edge and the ball smashes down the stumps 143/7

    3.2 goes big again, this time high over midwicket, straight down the throat of McCarthy at cow corner 12/1
    8.3 presses forward to defend, strikes the pad low and a big appeal, was it sliding down leg is the only question? Nope, he's given 37/2
    30 tries to cut away again, this time straight to the fielder at backward point, crucial timing in that wicket 101/4
    9.3 shorter ball again, goes for the cut shot but the ball bounces up off the gloves and in to the hands of first slip 38/3
    43.1 quicker one from Dockrell first up, and takes the batter by surprise as the ball beats the bat and takes the off-stump 162/5
    45.3 another quicker ball, another batsmen gone. Dockrell fires in another dart towards the bottom of off-stump which escapes the bat, advantage Ireland 174/7
    44.2 messed with it too much! Skied up in the air down the ground and Dockrell takes a towering catch at long-off 171/6
    50 goes for the big swing, good yorker length and Hall bowls him! Afghanistan have fallen just short 208/10
    48.2 goes for the big shot, but it's straight up in the air, the ball takes an age to come down but Coughlan steadies himself at midwicket to take the catch 191/8
