2.5 to Usman Ghani, played on! A length ball around off that jags back in sharply. Ghani was shaping up for a cut shot but is cramped. The ball hits him on the gloves and ricochets onto the stumps. 20/2
16.3 to Azmatullah Omarzai, length ball around off, goes for the lofted shot but is cramped and finds Tector at long-on. 103/7
1.1 to Rahmanullah Gurbaz, and he strikes first ball. Full outside off, Gurbaz throws his bat at it but ends isn't in control and ends up slicing it straight to short third. That's a big wicket for Ireland. 6/1
19.1 to Rashid Khan, a full toss on the stumps, Rashid looks to hit it down the ground but ends up chipping it to mid-off. 117/8
5.6 to Ibrahim Zadran, stunning catch from McBrine. Too full on the stumps, Zadran goes for another lofted shot but isn't in control. Gets more height than distance. McBrine runs in from deep midwicket, puts in a full-length dive forward and takes it inches above the ground. 41/3
8.2 to Najibullah Zadran, short of length outside off, goes for the uppercut but finds deep point. McCarthy runs in and takes it comfortably. Afghanistan lose their fourth wicket. 55/4
11.2 to Mohammad Nabi, a huge wicket. Full around off, Nabi looks to go big but balls dips at him a touch, and as a result, he fails to middle it. It's a simple catch for Dockrell at long-on. 69/5
15.5 to Hashmatullah Shahidi, goes for the reverse sweep, makes a firm connection but ends up hitting it straight to the backward point fielder. 99/6

13.2 to HT Tector, That's a superb catch at deep midwicket! Nabi with the breakthrough. Flighted on middle and leg, he slog-sweeps it to the longer boundary where Najibullah catches it and keeps his balance to stay inside the rope.. great effort there. 82/3
13.5 to LJ Tucker, Another one for Nabi, another catch for Najibullah. Tucker advances down the track and tries to loft it towards midwicket where Najibullah grabs it. 86/4
