3.1 to Noor Ali Zadran, full and holds its line outside off, Noor Ali aims to clear mid-on. No dice. He can only chip it to the fielder on the edge of the circle. 25/1
49.2 to Hashmatullah Shahidi, . 298/6
49.6 to Rashid Khan, pitched up and outside off, dragged away in the air but holes out to wide long-on. 305/7
Barry McCarthy4.303407.55115010
Boyd Rankin1015415.40335210
40.3 to Gulbadin Naib, Top-edged to short midwicket! Rankin runs in hard and hits the pitch harder. He rushes Naib into a hook. He skies it and it drops into the hands of a tumbling Stirling. 212/5
Andy McBrine1014324.30283010
31.1 to Rahmat Shah, caught at long-on. Use of feet by Rahmat Shah, reaches to the pitch of the ball and goes aerial but fails to clear Kevin O'Brien. An easy catch there for the allrounder. 175/2
31.5 to Mohammad Shahzad, now Shahzad looks to go over the bowler's head, it was tossed up a bit, Shahzad was shuffling in his crease, never a stable base but looks to go for a six. Doesn't middle it though, O'Brien takes a couple of steps to his left at long-on and grabs another one. 176/3
Kevin O'Brien2.301104.4081000
Paul Stirling301314.3370000
37.4 to Asghar Afghan, another batsman perishes while looking to clear long-on. Length ball around off, Asghar comes down the track and goes aerial. An easy catch for McBrine there. 204/4

BOWLINGOMRWECON0s4s6sWDNB
Dawlat Zadran703515.00275020
6.4 to JA McCollum, and he does go for the big shot but fails to middle it, ends up lobbing it to mid-off where Naib takes an easy catch. Was a length ball around off but the dot-ball pressure worked in the bowler's favour. 29/1
Mujeeb Ur Rahman512705.40182110
Aftab Alam702713.85272020
26.1 to WTS Porterfield, another bouncer and this time it does the trick. Porterfield pulls it in the air, makes a fine connection but Rahmat Shah runs to his right and takes a good catch, it was hit firmly. 117/5
Gulbadin Naib9.204364.60344110
15.6 to A Balbirnie, on a length and on a sixth-stump line outside off, not quite full enough for a drive. Balbirnie still goes for the strike and sends a thin edge behind to the keeper to leave Ireland two down. 77/2
17.5 to PR Stirling, dug in short and outside off, Stirling aims for the pull and picks out Rashid Khan at deep square leg. Straight into the lap of the outfielder. 84/3
21.5 to KJ O'Brien, Asghar Afghan takes a tumbling catch to his right. Short of length outside off and O'Brien pulls it off the front foot but fails to keep it down and Asghar takes a neat catch. 102/4
37.3 to BJ McCarthy, slower one on the stumps, looks to work on the leg side and misses. An appeal for lbw and given. 163/8
37.6 to TJ Murtagh, and that's fifer for Naib. Fuller around off, looks to go aerial but cannot clear mid-off, Asghar Afghan pedals back completes the catch. 163/9
41.2 to GC Wilson, and that's the sixth wicket for Naib. A slower one around off, swipes it across but cannot clear Rashid at midwicket. 179/10
