    FOUR! Dawlat Zadran to Andrew Balbirnie. Half volley, outside off stump backing away driving, thick edge in the air uncontrolled past third man for 4 runs. Steps outside leg again, and it flies off the edge over short third man to seal the victory for Ireland!

    What a game. The innings from Andrew Balbirnie has got to go down as one of the best in ODIs for Ireland. He has pretty much chased this down by himself. George Dockrell did add a valuable 54 in a fifth wicket partnership of 143, but all the credit will go to Balbirnie. Simply sensational. Najibullah Zadran's maiden century earlier in the day is now in vain, but it set things up for an enthralling finale to the match. Ireland now level up the series at 1-1.

    The next game in the series is now unmissable, so join us again on Friday to find out who is going to go 2-1 up.
