Tim Murtagh1013143.10413000
6.5 to Ihsanullah, its a good length ball, the batsman pokes the bat at the ball. Goes back towards the bowler and Murtagh dives to his left to take the return catch. 25/2
44.2 to Hashmatullah Shahidi, looks to pull the ball into the legside, is kind of through the shot before the ball gets to him and it just loops up into Balbirnie's hands at mid-wicket. 198/6
44.5 to Mohammad Nabi, and another one goes, Afghanistan collapsing a little here. Wants to turn the ball into the legside, its another leading edge and Balbirnie runs in from extra cover and takes a very simple catch. 199/7
46.2 to Rashid Khan, hits the ball straight to extra cover. 205/8
Boyd Rankin1004434.40362300
3.4 to Hazratullah Zazai, well that's a good comeback from Rankin! Its another short ball and this time it cramps him for room, the ball pops up off the bat and Singh runs in from extra cover to complete the catch.. 17/1
35.2 to Gulbadin Naib, Naib looks to pull the ball into the legside, gets beaten for pace and the ball hits him on the pad. Looked a little high from here, although the Umpire puts up the finger.. 155/4
47.3 to Shafiqullah, hits the ball a mile in the air, its drifting in the wind towards the square leg boundary and Singh gets under the ball to take the catch. 213/9
Peter Chase1005215.20303100
43.4 to Asghar Afghan, and he is gone! Looks for one big hit too many and pulls the ball towards the square leg boundary, Stirling doesn't have to move as the ball picks him out perfectly. 197/5
Andy McBrine1004614.60325000

Mujeeb Ur Rahman1003213.20371011
33.5 to A Balbirnie, goes down on one knee and looks to sweep the ball down to long leg, just can't get enough elevation on the ball and Alam jumps up at short fine leg and takes the catch. Balbirnie is furious that he has just given away his wicket. 130/5
Gulbadin Naib1014214.20354010
10.4 to WTS Porterfield, another caught behind! Porterfield flashes at a ball outside off-stump, gets the faintest of edges and the keeper takes the catch. Catches the ball and throws it up in the air, the Irish Skipper has to go. 35/2
Mohammad Nabi1004224.20301120
26.5 to Simi Singh, bowled him! Singh reaches forward to the ball and seems to leave a little gap between bat and pad, the ball spins through it and knocks off the bails. Simi stands there and just looks down at the pitch not believing it... 93/4
45.2 to AR McBrine, well the big shot had to come at some point, McBrine hits the ball down the ground and doesn't get enough on it. Zadran comes in off the long-off boundary and takes the catch. 179/7
Rashid Khan9.304124.31282020
48.2 to GC Wilson, well he hits them this time! Wilson tres to sweep a good length ball into the legside, think that it did him for pace and the stumps are knocked over.. 198/9
48.3 to PKD Chase, gone first ball! Chase has nothing to lose and he goes for a big hit down the ground. The ball goes high, high in the air, Chase knows that he is done for and doesn't even look as Rashid takes the catch. Afghanistan wins!. 198/10
