2.4 to Najeeb Tarakai, full and wide, holding its line outside off, but it is quite wide outside off. Plays an ill-advised slog across the line and picks out deep midwicket. Simple catch to the fielder George Dockrell. 23/1
10.2 to Usman Ghani, throws it away, really, comes down the track needlessly and misses the line completely. Length ball and he comes down the track. It comes on straight and he gets into an awkward position before attempting a pull. The ball misses the bat and takes out his stumps. 97/2
18.1 to Samiullah Shinwari, a better change in length and O'Brien gets Shenwari. Digs it in short outside off, not the length he was expecting. Shenwari mis-times his slog and picks out deep midwicket, running in to complete an easy catch. 195/6
18.5 to Karim Janat, got lucky there did O'Brien. Not great bowling, but the new man couldn't time it. Full in the arc outside off. Janat slices his lofted drive to long-off. Should have cleared long-off. Hands aloft because O'Brien now has four. 206/7
Stuart Thompson3036012.0054120
Jacob Mulder403228.0092200
12.3 to Mohammad Shahzad, comes down the track and picks out deep midwicket. Flat ball, bowls it on the leg stump line and cramps him for the extra room he was looking for. Launches it and straight into the hands of Dockrell. 121/4
12.5 to Najibullah Zadran, has he got the inside edge? Yes, he has. A late slide coming here. Double-strike for Mulder. Zadran does not pick the variation from the legspinner. Stays in the crease and plays for the turn but it spins the other way, takes a mild outside edge and it is held by the wicketkeeper. 121/5
Andy McBrine1011111.0031100
11.4 to Asghar Stanikzai, oh, good catch. Bowls it closer to the stumps and it is pitched up. But it is bowled at a flatter trajectory and he cannot get to the pitch of it. Tries to launch it and Thompson at long-on puts in a superbly-timed jump to snaffle it in front of the boundary. 119/3

Shapoor Zadran4060115.0064412
4.2 to PR Stirling, picks out deep square leg this time. Absolutely humongous moment in this game. A low full toss on off, Stirling walks across and sweep-flicks the ball straight to deep square leg, where Nabi gets across and takes a good reverse-cupped catch moving to his left. 65/1
Amir Hamza403929.7575100
6.2 to SR Thompson, he finally misses one does Thompson. Did the right thing by trying to keep the momentum going. Just plain missed the ball. Flat on leg, Thomspon fails to connect with a slog and loses his wicket. Another fine hand. 95/2
10.3 to WTS Porterfield, picks out long-on. Nabi runs in and takes another good catch. Flat on leg, Porterfield backs away but can only chip the ball to the fielder running in. Didn't get enough elevation or distance.. 123/4
Mohammad Nabi3.2043112.9063400
19.2 to GH Dockrell, that's the game. A slow, short delivery outside off. Dockrell slog-sweeps the ball into the hands of deep midwicket. Afghanistan's impressive run keeps chugging along. 11 unbeaten now.. 205/10
Karim Janat403428.5071200
7.5 to KJ O'Brien, this has been a superb over. O'Brien sees a full length but it's full with no pace on it. The slower variation and O'Brien just picks out long-on with his lofted drive. This is why chasing 200-plus scores are never easy; one ball can change the way the game progresses. 100/3
13.4 to AR McBrine, given out on the stroke! Not a great shot, but that looked like it was hitting off stump. A well-executed yorker on off, McBrine tries a cheeky reverse lap and since the length is so full, hardly has a chance of connecting. Hit on the pad and the umpire gives him. 159/5
Rashid Khan402837.0081100
18.2 to GC Wilson, slog-swept into the hands of deep midwicket, and that should probably be the game. A full legreak, deserved to go. Wilson got underneath but only skied the ball into the reverse-cupped hands of the fielder. 201/6
18.4 to LJ Tucker, bowled 'im. Another one. Flat on leg, Tucker hurries back and misses his pull. Leg stump is hit and Ireland's impressive fight looks short, in all likelihood. 203/7
18.6 to GJ Thompson, another one. Three in the over. Another ripping googly that isn't read by the batsman. Gets down to sweep and misses, clips the top of leg stump. 204/8
