    OUT! Run Out. Peter Chase to Rashid Khan. Short, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to long off for 1 run, fielded by O'Brien, by Chase. What has Mujeeb Zadran done there? An easy two was on, he went to run the bat in at the non-striker's, but it has got stuck just before the crease and fell out his hand. Chase takes off the bails, and he is clearly out with nothing behind the line. Run out without facing in your first international innings to lose the game.

    What an amazing victory for the Irish though. They were lacklustre in the first match, but totally deserved the win here. Paul Stirling and George Dockrell starred with the bat, before Barry McCarthy dismantled the top and lower order of Afghanistan. That now levels the series at 1-1 with one game to go. It should be a thriller on Sunday. Join us for that.

    FOUR! Peter Chase to Rashid Khan. Length ball, off stump down the track driving, well timed past deep extra cover for 4 runs. Rashid Khan needs some big hits to stand a chance now. He charges down here and lofts Chase over extra cover for four.

    OUT! L.B.W. Barry McCarthy to Dawlat Zadran. Half volley, off stump on the front foot flick, hit pad. McCarthy gets his maiden five wicket haul! Brilliant stuff from him today. Keeps it simple, fires it in full and straight, and Dawlat swipes across the line to be pinned in front. Absolutely stone dead. Ireland just one wicket away!

    FOUR! Barry McCarthy to Dawlat Zadran. Half volley, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed past deep extra cover for 4 runs. Afghanistan's number ten is showing some resolve. He threads a drive between extra cover and mid off for four. Still not completely over yet.

    OUT! Bowled. Barry McCarthy to Shafiqullah. Length ball, off stump on the front foot driving, missed. Brilliant from the boys in green! McCarthy proving to be an excellent pick for today's game. Two in two for him now, and four for the day. Full, straight, and Shafiqullah is very late in bringing his bat down. The ball sneaks between bat and pad to nail leg stump.

    OUT! Caught. Barry McCarthy to Nasir Jamal. Half volley, outside off stump on the front foot driving, mis-timed to cover, by Porterfield. Seven down! Ireland romping home to victory now! Jamal struggled throughout his innings, and finally he perishes. Looks to drive over extra cover, but cannot get the elevation, and it is pouched in the ring.

    Tim Murtagh to Rashid Khan. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot Late Cut, to backward point for no runs, dropped catch by Stirling. Could be a vital drop by Stirling at backward point. Rashid Khan guided the ball to his right hand side, but he got two hands to it, and probably will be disappointed he didn't hang on.
