Fall of wickets: 1-17 (Hazratullah Zazai, 3.6 ov), 2-23 (Noor Ali Zadran, 4.4 ov), 3-58 (Rahmat Shah, 10.5 ov), 4-59 (Ikram Alikhil, 11.2 ov), 5-67 (Gulbadin Naib, 13.2 ov), 6-81 (Najibullah Zadran, 17.3 ov), 7-131 (Asghar Afghan, 32.2 ov), 8-217 (Mohammad Nabi, 46.3 ov), 9-219 (Aftab Alam, 47.3 ov), 10-223 (Rashid Khan, 49.1 ov)
4.4 to Noor Ali Zadran, What a catch and it's all happening in Dehradun! Pulled his length back a little, it stuck in the surface, and Noor Zadran went for the backfoot punch again, was early into the shot on this occasion, pushing it aerially to cover's right, who takes a smart catch, diving low to his right. 23/2
3.6 to Hazratullah Zazai, How's that for a comeback! Length on middle, slightly quicker, Zazai stays back, playing for the flatter trajectory rather than the length, perhaps stayed a tad low, skidded on to him a little and crashed into his middle stump. 17/1
11.2 to Ikram Alikhil, that's a beauty and that's another one! tossed up outside off, inviting the batsman forward, who obliges only to realize that he isn't quite to the pitch of it, the hint of turn away and extra bounce induce the outside edge, taken well by the slip fielder low to his left. 59/4
49.1 to Rashid Khan, length, angled in, Rashid shuffles across and hammers it flat and hard to deep squareleg who takes it brilliantly, diving low to his right, ensuring that the ball doesn't pop out as his elbows make contact with the turf. That's the end of the Afghanistan innings, they haven't managed to bat out the fifty overs, but got close enough. 223/10
10.5 to Rahmat Shah, inside edge and well taken by the keeper! Innocuous looking delivery outside off, he pushed at it tentatively, trying to chop it away to point, and the thinnest inside edge carried low to the keeper, who pouched it safely. 58/3
47.3 to Aftab Alam, length outside off, has a wild swing at it, only managing a top edge high in the air and straight down thrid-man's throat. 219/9
13.2 to Gulbadin Naib, massive appeal and given! That's a beautiful delivery, drift into the batsman and sharp turn away as he tried to push it to the leg side with the initial angle. He was struck in front but the only problem was that it pitched outside leg. Pretty unlucky. 67/5
17.3 to Najibullah Zadran, hits it straight back! Oh this freefall doesn't stop for Afghanistan. A classic fingerspinner's dismissal. Lobbed up at a length outside off, getting him to try and drive against the turn. He looks to do that, without coming close to the pitch of the ball. It floats back to the bowler who takes a simple catch. Another Afghanistan batsman out playing with hard hands. 81/6
46.3 to Mohammad Nabi, down the wicket, doesn't quite time it as he looks to go over long-off, and taken comfortably on the boundary. 217/8

Fall of wickets: 1-31 (William Porterfield, 5.4 ov), 2-32 (Andy Balbirnie, 6.3 ov), 3-33 (Paul Stirling, 6.5 ov), 4-66 (Simi Singh, 19.1 ov), 5-82 (George Dockrell, 25.6 ov), 6-90 (Stuart Poynter, 29.1 ov), 7-96 (Andy McBrine, 30.6 ov), 8-96 (Kevin O'Brien, 31.2 ov), 9-96 (Tim Murtagh, 31.3 ov), 10-114 (Boyd Rankin, 35.3 ov)
6.3 to A Balbirnie, length on off, lunges forward but it's the extra bounce that has him trouble, as it catches the splice and lobs up to Mujeeb for a simple return catch. 32/2
6.5 to PR Stirling, length outside off, he goes for the sweep, misses and the keeper takes the bails off, Third-umpire has been called. The foot certainly slid out appreciably, the keeper took a while to take the bails off, which allows the batsman to drag his foot back but is it on the line? Tough one for the third-umpire. And he reckons there was nothing behind the line and Ireland are in deep trouble!. 33/3
5.4 to WTS Porterfield, massive appeal and given! That was full and tailing in, Porterfield went for the flick again, but beaten for pace this time and caught plumb in front. 31/1
29.1 to SW Poynter, short outside off and chopped on Innocuous delivery dragged back off the inside edge as he tries to blast it through point, rather than just time it. 90/6
31.2 to KJ O'Brien, another one dragged one! Cross bat shots haven't been a wise choice here, that was short on middle, he went for the pull, with little choice but to attack, ends up chopping it back onto his stumps and Afghanistan are just two away, with Ireland's only hope now back in the hut. 96/8
31.3 to TJ Murtagh, through the gate and that's another one for Aftab! kept it simple, kept it straight, bowled it fast and he was too late too bring his bat down, which also came down at an angle, as the ball crashed into middle stump. He's on a hat-trick and will fancy his chances. 96/9
25.6 to GH Dockrell, knocked over! That was a slower ball and he was through with his ugly swing across the line much before the ball arrived, it kept a little low and crashed into middle. 82/5
35.3 to WB Rankin, full on middle, there seemed to have been a massive inside edge before it struck him in front as he pushed forward but the umpire reckoned otherwise and that's a demolition job from Afghanistan. 114/10
19.1 to Simi Singh, through him! Simi picks the googly, but he's through the sweep too early. Length outside off, gets low and is beaten because this barely comes onto him. Beats the inside part of the under-edge and crashes into off stump. 66/4
30.6 to AR McBrine, full toss, pushed back to the bowler, Rashid sticks his right hand out and hangs on to a beauty! The ball didn't deserve a wicket but return catches don't come much better than that. 96/7
