Fareed Ahmad1006536.50288060
31.5 to WTS Porterfield, edged and taken. Good length and outside off, Porterfield is stapled to the crease as he drives loosely and nicks it to the left of Shahzad. Simple, waist-high catch. 156/3
47.3 to AR McBrine, slices the full delivery to third man. The catch is as easy as they come. Sashayed down the pitch to smoke that over cover but the bat face turned in his hand as he made contact. Intent right, execution wrong. Point fielder did well to heed to his mate's call. 227/8
47.6 to GH Dockrell, the middle stump is flattened. Length ball angling in from wide of the crease, he backed away to go over cover but missed it altogether because he swung through too early. Ireland, who looked good for 280, now in danger of not lasting their full quota. 229/9
Dawlat Zadran8.113324.04273000
38.6 to GC Wilson, sensational yorker. Pure pace. Class from Zadran. Full and furiously fast on middle, by the time the bat came down, the middle stump had been flattened. Used the crease well. Went wide and then got this to reverse back in a long way. Top-class. Waqar would've been proud of that delivery. Magical. 185/5
48.1 to TJ Murtagh, bangs a short ball on middle, he goes across a long way to help it along to fine leg but the ball got big on him and he ended up gloving it to the keeper. As simple as they come for him.. 229/10
Gulbadin Naib903914.33335020
22.6 to PR Stirling, Cleans 'em up. Naib sends the middle stump cartwheeling. Fairly straight ball, Stirling plays all around this. He looks to open the bat-face and probably run it fine. Naib makes the shot look even worse. Most batsmen would have looked to drive that through cover or down the ground. 116/2
Mohammad Nabi1004504.50373210
Rashid Khan1012942.90382010
14.5 to EC Joyce, Rashid provides Afghanistan with the breakthrough! The off stump is knocked back. This is the legbreak from Rashid. Spins back into the left-hander and dips. Rashid storms through the gate and hits off and middle. Rashid, playing his 26th ODI, takes his 50th wicket. He is among the fastest to the landmark. 69/1
34.3 to A Balbirnie, looks to slog across the line, manages a top-edge that was swirling in the air for a long, long time. Shafiqullah came running in a long way from deep square, but still wasn't certain to get a hand on it. Almost as an afterthought, he flung himself, diving full length forward as the ball lodged in his bucket hands. Rashid sprints to his mate to give him a high five. Spectacular catch that! . 170/4
40.6 to NJ O'Brien, plumb this time. Once again the doubt was created because Rashid was getting the ball to spun both ways. This time he played for the wrong'un only to see the ball cut back in and hit him plumb in front of middle. Made the mistake of tucking the bat behind the pad as well. Ireland in big trouble. 280 was on the cards not too long ago. That could be whittled down to 230 or so at this rate. Inspired bowling change from Stanikzai. 190/6
42.3 to SR Thompson, this is magnificent! The cover fielder moved to his left even as the batsman shaped to drive. That helped him cover a couple of steps before then flinging himself to his left and put out one hand to pluck that when it didn't look possible. Stunning from Shenwari. What athleticism.. 193/7

Stuart Thompson1003813.80372120
4.5 to Mohammad Shahzad, sensational catch! Looked to smash that over cover but didn't get to the pitch of the ball and ended up slicing it to point where Porterfield threw himself to his left and caught that with both hands. The danger man is gone. 19/1
Tim Murtagh913614.00293000
7.6 to Najeeb Tarakai, what a catch! That is special. The pressure of dot balls got to Tarakai. Murtagh, like he has been doing, takes pace off the ball with an offcutter. Tarakai goes through with a lofted drive but gets more elevation than distance. It hags in the air for a while. The fielder at long-on scurries across to his right, keeps his eyes on the ball all along and takes a lovely catch at deep midwicket. It doesn't have the aesthetics of a one-handed screamer but that is a brilliant take. Needed so many things to go right, did 'em all.. 25/2

24.4 to Asghar Stanikzai, done in this time! Stanikzai goes. Against the ball turning away, that's a dangerous option because if it does spin, then it opens you up to this. Stanikzai wanted to hit that over long-on again but takes the outside half and skews down to long-off. The previous six was also fraught with risk, but that one didn't turn and he got closer to the pitch. This one, he was done in by good bowling. The length was shorter. 98/3
