TOTAL48.5 Ov (RR: 4.30, 200 Mins)210
Fall of wickets: 1-23 (James McCollum, 4.5 ov), 2-35 (Andy Balbirnie, 8.3 ov), 3-134 (William Porterfield, 31.6 ov), 4-140 (Paul Stirling, 33.1 ov), 5-155 (Gary Wilson, 37.2 ov), 6-192 (Kevin O'Brien, 43.6 ov), 7-201 (Mark Adair, 45.6 ov), 8-205 (George Dockrell, 46.5 ov), 9-207 (Andy McBrine, 47.6 ov), 10-210 (Boyd Rankin, 48.5 ov)
4.5 to JA McCollum, cuts in from the fourth stump, it hits McCollum bang in front of the stumps, and it's given. Might have been a fraction of doubt about the height, but it was very adjacent. Afghanistan have their first breakthrough.. 23/1
8.3 to A Balbirnie, beauty! Stifled appeal but he's been given. Played for the one that nips away but this cuts in to cramp him for room and possibly tickle the inside edge through to the keeper. Balbirnie doesn't exude the body language of someone hard done by.. 35/2
47.6 to AR McBrine, caught at backward point. Down the track and Alam had banged this down in the pitch, it rises up and takes the top edge off his intended pull, loops to the fielder who comes forward and catches it. 207/9
43.6 to KJ O'Brien, caught at fine leg. The slower bouncer does it, and Ireland are stumbling further at the death. He went for the hook, but had to fetch it from outside off stump, and gets it off the toe-end. The ball loops up and the man at fine leg makes no mistake.. 192/6
45.6 to MR Adair, he's missed, and the bowler's hit. Ireland continue to lose wickets and momentum. Gave himself room and wanted to smash that through the offside, but gets thin bottom edge onto the stumps. 201/7
48.5 to WB Rankin, it's all over. Yorker from around the wicket angling in, not much a No.11 can do with that. Rankin drives outside the line and the ball sneaks in and disturbs the stumps. 210/10
33.1 to PR Stirling, the captain strikes! Cramped for room as he shapes to pull, top-edges this straight to mid-on. Massive moment in the game as this will leave two new batsmen at the crease. 140/4
31.6 to WTS Porterfield, holes out to the lone man at deep square. Went for the slog sweep, and ended up top-edging it, one short of a century stand. What a big disappointment. 134/3
46.5 to GH Dockrell, and he's given him. Flatter on the stumps and it looked like he didn't read the googly, strikes him in front of the stumps and that looked out. Rashid appealed loudly and the umpire raised his finger. 205/8

TOTAL35.4 Ov (RR: 3.86, 158 Mins)138
Fall of wickets: 1-7 (Mohammad Shahzad, 4.2 ov), 2-19 (Rahmat Shah, 8.4 ov), 3-22 (Hazratullah Zazai, 12.2 ov), 4-40 (Hashmatullah Shahidi, 18.6 ov), 5-94 (Mohammad Nabi, 27.6 ov), 6-104 (Asghar Afghan, 30.2 ov), 7-120 (Rashid Khan, 32.1 ov), 8-120 (Dawlat Zadran, 32.4 ov), 9-138 (Gulbadin Naib, 35.2 ov), 10-138 (Mujeeb Ur Rahman, 35.4 ov)
4.2 to Mohammad Shahzad, dot-ball pressure has consumed Shahzad, and this is a beauty from Murtagh! Got this length ball to bend back in - he kept bowling it away until now - Shahzad, who walks across, is surprised by the late movement as he prods outside the line and is hit in front of off-stump. Good decision.. 7/1
8.4 to Rahmat Shah, poor application, huge credit to Murtagh. The heavy ball has delivered a massive blow. Rahmat is frustrated at being tied down, so looks to dominate by stepping out and flat-batting this over midwicket but is cramped for room, he's surprised by the zip on the delivery as well as he top-edges one straight to midwicket. Afghanistan are in a hint of trouble.. 19/2
12.2 to Hazratullah Zazai, castled him, the pressure does it. Zazai decided to go for it, disregarding length and this was not short enough to pull at all. Went for the swivel pull, bat didn't come anywhere near the ball, but the ball cannoned into the offstump. 22/3
18.6 to Hashmatullah Shahidi, beauty, and caught behind. Another one that is back of a length and moving across him, but he pitched this on off, altered the line a bit, he was pitching them on middle and leg and going across. The change in line meant the batsman found himself reaching for the ball more and ended up nicking it while it was rising, straight to the keeper.. 40/4
35.2 to Gulbadin Naib, taken at long-on. Good length ball outside off, and Naib wanted to go straight down the ground, but got it off the inside half and it flew straight down long-on's throat. Ireland a wicket away now. 138/9
35.4 to Mujeeb Ur Rahman, brilliant return catch to end the game. Backed away, this was a yorker on middle stump and Mujeeb made the room to drill this back, but Adair was in the way and got his hands up to take a reflex catch very smartly. Ireland have wrapped this up very quickly, and won by 72 runs.. 138/10
30.2 to Asghar Afghan, huge appeal for lbw and he has been given! Afghan plays all around this incoming length ball, hit on the right pad. The umpire took his time and ruled him out after some deliberation.. 104/6
32.1 to Rashid Khan, caught by mid-off. Rashid's cameo ends! Rankin dug it in short and outside off, the toughest length and line to try and pull, but Rashid tried to fetch it anyway, gets a top edge that goes in the air to mid-off, and Ireland are firmly on top now. 120/7
32.4 to Dawlat Zadran, caught by the keeper off a top edge. Dug this in short again, Dawlat was moving across once again, and tried to pull it fine, but only got a top edge. Looped straight behind for a dolly of a catch. This could all end quickly. 120/8
27.6 to Mohammad Nabi, massive moment in the game, is it? The man with the golden arm has sent back the danger man. Nabi goes for a flashing drive, doesn't quite get to the pitch, it was a loose drive and all he managed was a thin nick through to Wilson. 94/5
