Naveen-ul-Haq1004244.20355000
24.5 to HT Tector, there's the breakthrough! A tentative checked drive to one that was another change of pace, but angling into him this time. Was looking to clear the man close in at mid-wicket, but ended up skewing it straight into his hands. Inspired bowling change from Asghar Afghan, recognizing that Ireland were eager to get some runs going. 104/3
44.3 to PR Stirling, width and he throws his bat at it and straight into the hands at extra cover and it is Naib who takes it, he had dropped Stirling early on in his innings. A wonderful knock from Stirling comes to an end.. 226/5
48.5 to Simi Singh, short slower bouncer and Simi Singh looks to hook it and gets the glove and lobs up to the keeper.. 251/7
48.6 to AR McBrine, two in two, round the wicket and knocks the top of off stump, McBrine looks to go big through the onside and he misses it. You miss I hit.. 251/8
Mujeeb Ur Rahman1004634.60333110
1.3 to KJ O'Brien, outside edge and taken at first slip, another failure for Kevin. Slight movement away from the bat this time, after the first two deliveries which came in.. 6/1
3.5 to A Balbirnie, a tad shorter, goes for the sweep and misses, loud appeal and given. The skipper reviews it. Pitches outside the off stump and spins in, was the googly, strikes the body, Ultra edge shows no spike. Ball tracking shows hitting the body in line and hitting the stumps.. 20/2
45.5 to LJ Tucker, slog sweeps it high in the air to deep square leg and taken by Nabi. He did not have a go at it with a full swing.. 232/6
Gulbadin Naib906417.11163230
49.2 to BJ McCarthy, swings it high in the air to deep midwicket and Rashid waits for it and takes it well.. 252/9

Javed Ahmadi10909.0020100
Rashid Khan1014914.90274010
41.3 to C Campher, wide full toss driven in the air to the off side, he could have put it anywhere, but he picks out the short extra cover fielder, Hashmatullah, who takes it low down in front of him.. 210/4

Simi Singh8.204415.28304210
41.6 to Hashmatullah Shahidi, there's the breakthrough! No maiden ODI hundred for Hashmatullah, but this is smart bowling by Simi. Knowing that the left-hander is perhaps eager to get some big hits going in search of three figures, tosses this up, but shortens the length a touch. He goes across the line but gets a top edge. It goes looping behind the bowler, and long off gets across to his left and takes a good diving catch. 232/3
Barry McCarthy705918.42196310
7.5 to Javed Ahmadi, that should be gone. Yes, given as Ahmadi is caught in front with one that keeps a bit low. Practises his shot, and then turns and walks away. McCarthy goes closer to the stumps for this, and gets it to jag back from just outside off. Ahmadi has walked across his stumps a touch, before shaping to flick. Probably needed him to offer the full face of the bat, but the bowling change works like a charm for Ireland. 44/1
Curtis Campher402817.00153110
8.3 to Rahmanullah Gurbaz, that could be gone too! Given out leg before to a full ball, and he has reviewed. Full ball, and he seems to have overbalanced in shuffling across and flicking this. The angle is going from off to leg, but crucially the initial decision is leg before. No inside edge, and that means this will go on to hit the base of leg stump. 48/2
