    Rashid Khan to Boyd Rankin. Leg spinner length ball, outside off stump on the front foot pushing, to mid on for 1 run, fielded by Nabi.

    A clean sweep for Afghanistan in the T20 series. A third clinical victory which was set up by a powerful Mohammad Nabi innings and finished by that man once again, Rashid Khan. He ended with figures of 5-27 at a time when Ireland had to swing the bat with the run-rate increasing. It was another good start made by the Irish though but it was the middle-order who weren't able to capitalise, that will be a disappointing aspect of their game while their bowling was put under incredible pressure.
    Onto the ODI series then and Ireland might have a better chance but it is not going to be easy against this side in the form they are in.

    OUT! Stumped. Rashid Khan to Shane Getkate. Googly length ball, outside off stump down the track Slog, missed to wicketkeeper, by Shafiq. Ireland continue to crumble. Down the wicket but Getkate has not picked the googly and he misses with the big swing. Great work behind the sticks with the ball skidding and not getting up off the surface.

    OUT! Caught. Rashid Khan to George Dockrell. Leg spinner length ball, outside off stump on the front foot slog sweeping, well timed in the air under control to long on, by Nabi. Fantastic work on the boundary edge. This ball was travelling as Dockrell smashed it flat and hard but into the reach of Nabi. A jumping catch followed by a flick to himself before overbalancing across the rope. So casual but extremely difficult to do.

    OUT! Caught. Rashid Khan to Kevin O'Brien. Googly length ball, outside off stump backing away driving, bottom edge to wicketkeeper, by Shafiq. Huge wicket in the context of the game. O'Brien was the one doing the damage but he feathers a bottom edge through to the keeper and is on his way back. Ireland need people to come in and swing from the off.
