So Afghanistan have taken an unassailable 2-0 lead in the three-match series. The last game will be played tomorrow at the very venue. But for now, that's all from our side. See you soon.

Asghar Afghan: Today is a very historical moment for Afghanistan. We are very happy because in the last couple of matches our top order hadn't done well.

Hazratullah Zazai is the Man of the Match. "I just tried to play my natural game," he says. "Today was my day. The wicket was good for the batting, their bowlers tried to bowl very well but today was my day."

Paul Stirling: It was a tough task especially with Rashid Khan. Every game is a big game for us. We will come back tomorrow and look to do well.

Time for the presentation ceremony.

Prem Shankar : "Is this the record for most runs in a T20I?" -- The third-most.

10.00pm A day on which many records tumbled, Afghanistan beat Ireland by 84 runs in a run-fest. Paul Stirling and Kevin O'Brien put together 126 in 11.5 overs for the first wicket but once the stand was broken, the incoming batsmen couldn't keep up with the asking rate. Rashid Khan, who came on in the 11th over, picked up 4 for 25 in his four overs to dash Ireland's hopes. But the day belong to Hazratullah Zazai who smashed 162* off 62 with 11 fours and 16 sixes as Afghanistan posted the highest-ever team total in T20Is.
