Barry McCarthy1006916.90356420
47.5 to Najibullah Zadran, slow off-cutter, wide outside off, and he has ended up guiding this straight to short third man. Ends a remarkably painful innings from Najib. Took his time against spin, and then seemed all at sea against the short lengths from the seamers. 256/8
Craig Young614006.66202300
Simi Singh1024514.50340300
41.3 to Azmatullah Omarzai, Simi joins in the fun! Length ball, tucks him up, and just stops on him as he looks to drive down the wicket. Goes off the inner part of the bat and goes quickly to the right of the bowler, who snaps it up gleefully. 208/7
Curtis Campher3039013.0063330
Andy McBrine1002952.90431030
21.6 to Javed Ahmadi, Ahmadi has fallen to the pressure being applied, slog sweeps in the air to deep midwicket and taken by Simi Singh.. 120/1
25.3 to Rahmat Shah, straight to the fielder at backward square leg. It was flat and and turning, sweeps with turn to McCarthy, who did not have to move anywhere.. 133/2
27.1 to Asghar Afghan, few paces out, sweeps and in the process loses his balance, taken by the fielder at leg slip. Ireland appeal, turned down by the umpire, they review it. Ultra edge shows a spike, off the glove to the fielder.. 146/3
29.3 to Mohammad Nabi, spins in and flicks it straight to Kevin at leg slip, second player to fall at that position.. 152/4
31.6 to Gulbadin Naib, coming round the wicket and plays forward and takes the edge to Kevin at leg slip, who takes it low down in front of him. A fifer for McBrine, wonderful stuff.. 161/5
Paul Stirling402305.75150210
Kevin O'Brien501903.80211100
Gareth Delany201718.5051100
37.5 to Rahmanullah Gurbaz, short, and this time the entertainment comes to an end, as he holes out to deep square leg! Gurbaz will be annoyed with himself, because it's a loose ball. Sits up on the pitch a bit, and he fancies his chances of going over deep square leg, but cannot clear the man posted there. 198/6

Fall of wickets: 1-16 (Kevin O'Brien, 2.4 ov), 2-36 (Andy Balbirnie, 6.4 ov), 3-86 (Harry Tector, 16.5 ov), 4-88 (Paul Stirling, 17.1 ov), 5-174 (Curtis Campher, 36.4 ov), 6-185 (Gareth Delany, 39.5 ov), 7-228 (Simi Singh, 45.2 ov), 8-232 (Andy McBrine, 46.1 ov), 9-253 (Lorcan Tucker, 47.4 ov)
2.4 to KJ O'Brien, cutter, and he looks to play across the line again. Trapped in front, and it's been given! Considers the review, but chooses not to do it. What a start for Afghanistan. Getting the dangerous Kevin O'Brien out this early, and that too against seam. 16/1
6.4 to A Balbirnie, slower ball, does the trick! Cutter, angled across, and Balbirnie perhaps fancies his chances of getting this through the square leg region. The ball stops a bit, and he ends up playing an uppish poke towards short mid-wicket, where Rashid Khan, who else, dives forward to take it. Throws it up in celebration, and Afghanistan know they have another big name out of the way. 36/2
46.1 to AR McBrine, fuller in the slot and driven in the air down the ground to long on and taken by Rashid running in.. 232/8
Mujeeb Ur Rahman1004024.00343020
36.4 to C Campher, given lbw, and he reviews it...length ball from wide of the crease, this was pitched around middle stump and it straightens. Campher plays down the wrong line and it goes past the bat to hit the back pad. No bat involved. Three reds, and he's gone. Ireland have lost all their reviews.. 174/5
45.2 to Simi Singh, down the track and misses, the keeper does the rest. The bowler saw him coming and bowls it wider and quicker.. 228/7
Gulbadin Naib703615.14142010
16.5 to HT Tector, whoops, spoken too soon! Another slower ball, and Tector goes back to one that was a bit short of a length. Ended up just playing a tame poke back towards the bowler, and Naib swiftly moves to his right to pouch this. 86/3
Mohammad Nabi1004514.50324011
17.1 to PR Stirling, Nabi strikes another blow, spins in a long way, strikes Stirling on the pads right in front of the stumps, loud appeal for lbw and given. Stirling immediately reviews it. The tracker suggests it is hitting the stumps.. 88/4
Rashid Khan1005625.60292130
39.5 to GJ Delany, sweeps and top edges to short fine leg and Omarzai takes the catch.. 185/6
47.4 to LJ Tucker, uses his feet, cuts and misses, the keeper collects the ball gets rid of the stumps.. 253/9
