5.40pm: So that unravelled quickly for Afghanistan, but it was a deserving win by Ireland. This was the best bowling performance they have put up in quite a while, and they'll have a bounce in their step when the two teams meet for their next match, on Tuesday, May 21. Join us live for that one, but until then, it's goodbye from us.
Gulbandin Naib: The boys did really well in the field, but credit goes to Ireland, they bowled really well. Stirling and Porterfield batted really well, they put on a 100 partnership (99) and that's why they got a good score.
William Porterfield: Very much so (happy). We played some very good cricket in patches earlier. Here also at half-time we thought we were a bit short to be honest. We've built up a pretty good relation (him and Stirling), we know each other well. Very satisfied with our performance, and taking 10 wickets was very pleasing. You rarely run through a side, they were always going to get a partnership. I wanted Boyd (Rankin) to be as aggressive as possible.
5.35pm: Ireland looked like they had not got enough on the board. They were looking good for 240-250, but ended up with just 210. But their bowlers were magnificent, and weathered a threatening stand between Asghar Afghan and Mohammad Nabi.
Ireland's last ODI win was also against Afghanistan, but came back in March, in Dehradun. Since then they've played five ODIs without tasting victory - four defeats and one abandonment.
5.32pm: Great win for Ireland, they've been waiting for a win for some time now. This was driven by the bowlers, starting with Tim Murtagh, then with Andy McBrine's ten overs on the trot, and down to Mark Adair's strikes and even the veteran Boyd Rankin putting a horror start behind him to strike back. Adair's 4-19 is his career best too.
nathaniel demer: "Ashmal Khot , its not easy for afgan batsmen to play fearless right away in new condition , they need bit of time to adapt. Besides ireland has improved significantly recently , perhaps irish are stronger side ."
some fielding changes taking place. McCollum calling for a helmet to come in at short square leg. Gives Aftab Alam food for thought, perhaps one is going to come to his throat? Or leave him expecting that and bowl a full one? We'll see... McCollum is not standing very close in though, about 8 yards out at short leg
Adzy: "100 ODI wickets up for Big Boyd Rankin! Congrats!!!"
Ashmal Khot: "I don't understand why the Afghan top order the likes of Shahzad and Zazai are not playing fearlessly if they play their natural game and get out that is fine at least they will get a good start if they click"
Adair is back. Maybe Porterfield should give Murtagh a chance to mop up the tail and add some wickets? He's the one who set it all up...
