backs away and launches this fuller delivery over the bowler's head, was in the air for a long time and just clears Qais Ahmad at long-off
That's all from our side. See you soon.
Asghar collects the trophy and the whole team joins him for the photograph.
Asghar Afghan: I think the wicket was good but our batsmen played some poor shots. Super Over is a different experience. Youngsters came up good, today we gave an opportunity to Qais and Naveen too showed his talent. Thanks to everyone who came to watch us.
Gurbaz: Definitely there were good matches but we were well prepared for that. If you have seen our players, Nabi, Rashid, Mujeeb and Asghar, I have learnt a lot from them. The captain and coach gave me a role and I played according to that,
Rahmanullah Gurbaz is the Man of the Series.
O'Brien: Going into the Super Over, needing eight or nine against the best bowler in the world is not easy. Luckily that last hit came off. We are starting to build a strong squad, we are trying to have No. 7, 8, 9 who can go from the first ball. We have learnt from game 1 to game 3, about specific plans for each player. You have to adjust quickly and I think we did.
Kevin O'Brien is the Player of the Match.
Andy Balbirnie: A great game of cricket. We showed great fight and character. Craig Young was brilliant, he bowled brilliant Super Over as well. Last couple of months we have beaten West Indies away and now Afghanistan away. It's a great win for the team. You can only learn by being out there and our guys I think have done that.
Time for the presentation ceremony.

Paul Stirling and Kevin O'Brien come out for Ireland. Who else but Rashid with the ball. It was Rashid in first place who had helped Afghanistan tie the scores in the main game. Can he deliver with the ball now?
A brilliant effort by Young to restrict Afghanistan to only eight. Ireland need nine to win. If the Super Over is also tied, we have a second Super Over
length outside off, slashes at it and gets it over cover-point. They are sprinting back for the second. The throw isn't great but good work from Tucker to break the stumps. The third umpire is having a look at it and it looks out. He is taking his time, and rules it not out. In one frame the bails were not broken and the batsman was short. In the next the bails were off with the batsman in
