Afghanistan win by 16 runs, they take the 10 super league points and lead the 3-match series 1-0.

The highlight of the match, Gurbaz's 127, first wicket partnership with Javed for 120 runs, McBrine picking a fifer for 29 runs, Rashid Khan finishing the innings with a quickfire 55.

In the Ireland innings, Paul Stirling's 39 runs, they were pegged back when they lost the top 4 wickets for 88 runs. It was Tucker's knock of 83, that kept them in the race, but in the end it was all too much for them.

The player of the match is Rahmanullah Gurbaz.
