Peter Chase1009219.20279501
46.4 to Asghar Stanikzai, and Stanikzai's superb knock comes to an end as he tries to accelerate late in the innings. Full and on the pads, tries to flick it and does so uppishly towards the cow corner region. Deep midwicket runs across and takes the catch. 299/6
Tim Murtagh716809.71168300
George Dockrell1004524.50313100
14.1 to Mohammad Shahzad, goes for a big heave and misses it altogether. Just slightly short of a length and Shahzad does not pick the drift on it so he is not able to gauge how much that has come in to him. Tries to swivels around and pull it away but misses and gets rapped on the pad, in front of leg. 90/1
33.6 to Rahmat Shah, short ball, swivels around and pulls but the ball did not bounce as much. Though he gets good elevation, mainly due to his power, that never seemed like it would carry all the way. The timing is awry and he gets it off the toe end as the ball goes to cow corner where Joyce runs a few steps to his right to snaffle it. 190/3

Andy McBrine502004.00161000
Paul Stirling1005565.50275110
41.4 to Samiullah Shinwari, short ball, spinning away outside off and he chooses to play against the turn and fetch it from well outside off. Ends up sending a catch down the throat of Joyce at long-on, he doesn't have to move an inch to snaffle that. 261/4
45.3 to Mohammad Nabi, Nabi has holed out to long-on here. Pitched up on the stumps and he tries to loft it down the ground. Does not get on top of it completely and he can only loft it as far as Porterfield who is waiting with open hands to accept the catch at long-on. 292/5
47.1 to Gulbadin Naib, gone, nicely done by Paul Stirling. Naib had no clue about that one, failed to read it or understand which way it would turn. It was the legbreak this time from Stirling and Naib comes forward, expects the ball to spin into him like an off-break would. Gets beaten, walks into the shot and the wicketkeeper does the rest. 303/7
49.1 to Rashid Khan, advances down the ground but the ball is drifting away from him. He does not get anywhere near it and the spin takes it further away. Wicketkeeper takes the bails off and Rashid perishes for playing across the line. 329/8
49.4 to Shafiqullah, short ball, has to fetch a pull from way outside off and he was never in control of that. Does not get it anywhere off the middle of the bat, right off the toe end and down the throat of deep midwicket. Five wickets for Stirling. 336/9
49.6 to Dawlat Zadran, full toss, tries to launch it over long-on but does not time it too well. Probably came at a not too comfortable height. Sends it down the throat of long-on and six wickets for Stirling. Three of them in the final over. 338/10

Amir Hamza806007.50216200
Dawlat Zadran905235.77318002
36.4 to A Balbirnie, this one's a lot more plumb and the finger goes up in quick time. Half the Ireland side has been dismissed now. This is increasingly seeming like the awful collapse from the previous game. Fullish ball, nipping back in from a length, beats his attempted flick and raps him in front. Seemed pretty plumb. 228/5
44.3 to SR Thompson, short ball, pulls and picks out deep midwicket. And it is Thompson, a set Thompson who had looked so good. It was the lack of room that had him holing out. Pitching on middle and leg and though he backs away slightly, he does not find the room required to effectively play that shot. 282/7
46.4 to TJ Murtagh, tame dismissal. Full and on the pads. Tries to clip it and harmlessly chips it to mid-on. Slower ball from Zadran and the batsman does not pick and is done in by the lack of pace. 301/9
Mohammad Nabi917007.77249200
Gulbadin Naib805216.50222251
18.2 to EC Joyce, gone! Exposes the stumps once more and this time he's just made an opening for the ball to strike them. This is a good length ball headed at off stump, he has backed away to try and slice this through point but is beaten and loses his off stump. 113/1
Samiullah Shinwari401904.75111010
Rashid Khan9.304364.52313120
26.4 to PR Stirling, he's got him! Stirling is livid and spewing expletives as he's walking back. Googly at a good length, pitches on middle stump, catches him in front of leg stump as he tries to whip this off the back foot. That would have gone down, without a doubt. Very unlucky.. 173/2
28.3 to NJ O'Brien, No. Clue. Whatsoever. O'Brien has completely been done in by Rashid. The line is the same, the length is the same, but this one is straightening slightly. He's stuck on the back foot looking for the googly and is trapped in front. This time the decision is straightforward and correct. 179/3
33.5 to WTS Porterfield, chipped to extra cover. Rashid has struck again and it is Porterfield, a set Porterfield who has to go. It's the wrong'un from Rashid and the Ireland captain has failed to pick it. Flighted and pitched up outside off, Porterfield expects it to spin in and tries to flick, but it ends up being a shot against the turn. Leading edge lobs to extra cover. 217/4
42.5 to GC Wilson, another googly and four for Rashid again. He's making a habit of taking these four-fors. Pitched up around off and the batsman is looking for the drive, has no idea about the variation and the ball beats the inside edge and takes out his stumps. Ireland continue to have a horrid time picking Rashid's googlies. 278/6
45.2 to AR McBrine, five-wicket haul for Rashid. And a phenomenal stumping by Shahzad. Googly again from Rashid and the batsman is opened up and walks into the shot as he looks to turn it away into the leg side. Shahzad does the rest, does not move an inch with his feet, just stretches out and reaches for the stumps but takes the bails off in a flash. The batsman wasn't even through with the shot when the stumping was completed. 287/8
47.3 to PKD Chase, now it is definitely game over. Six wickets for Rashid. Handshakes exchanged again and this time they are only headed out. No coming back. Googly from Rashid again, the batsman fails to pick it, plays for the turn as he comes forward to defend. The ball spins past the inside edge and crashes into the stumps. 304/10
