View dismissal Mohammad Shahzad run out (KJ O'Brien) 43 41 7 1 104.87
10.5 from Mulder, could be run-out here, third umpire has been called for. Pushes it into the leg side, to the right of midwicket who runs across, picks up and fires at the non-striker's end in one smooth motion. The replays show he was ambling across lazily. There was some doubt with the bowler's hands being close to the stumps, but the third umpire has seen enough to conclude that O'Brien's throw broke the wickets 68/1
View dismissal Noor Ali Zadran c sub (AR McBrine) b Dockrell 51 71 3 0 71.83
29.4 he's picked the fielder. Arm ball, angled in at off stump, he hangs back, gets low and wants to slog this through midwicket. But it skids on quickly, his bat turns and he picks out short midwicket who takes it low under his eyes. Wasn't to the pitch of the ball and that shot is difficult to pull off on this pitch if you aren't 151/2
View dismissal Rahmat Shah c Dockrell b KJ O'Brien 78 92 4 3 84.78
38.1 ...and that was the shot of a tired man as well. Good length at middle stump, decides he's had enough of the straight bat singles, backs away and tries to slog this over long-on on the up. The pitch is low, and slow, and there isn't enough power on that. Long-on didn't have to move 197/4
View dismissal Asghar Stanikzai* c †NJ O'Brien b Murtagh 10 15 1 0 66.66
34.5 lazy shot. Good length outside off, very slight movement away, but it's his lack of feet movement that has done him in, not the ball's. Pokes at it a couple of yards outside the off stump, gets an outside edge through to the keeper 180/3
View dismissal Hashmatullah Shahidi c †NJ O'Brien b KJ O'Brien 32 32 4 0 100.00
45.1 good length, cutter, wide outside off, tries to slam this on the up through the off side, big edge, carries to the keeper's left 250/5
View dismissal Samiullah Shenwari c sub (AR McBrine) b KJ O'Brien 30 22 2 2 136.36
45.3 and another for O'Brien. Good length at off stump, walks across and sets himself up for a big slog, cramps himself for room and doesn't middle it. Flies towards long-on who runs in and takes a neat catch low as he's sliding 251/6
Mohammad Nabi not out 34 19 3 1 178.94
View dismissal Gulbadin Naib c Porterfield b Chase 7 9 0 0 77.77
49.1 low full toss at off stump, walks across the stumps, gets under it and lifts it straight to deep midwicket. That was tailing in and he went for the angle, but it was too close to him and he couldn't get power into it 283/7

View dismissal EC Joyce c †Mohammad Shahzad b Amir Hamza 4 8 0 0 50.00
2.6 that's a soft dismissal. Strangled down the leg side. It's a harmless length ball on leg stump channel and spinning further down leg. Joyce tries to tuck it off the pads and ends up getting an edge to the wicketkeeper 13/1
View dismissal PR Stirling c & b Rashid Khan 68 90 6 1 75.55
28.4 oh, gone. Off the splice again and this time it has been chipped straight back to Rashid who gets a good low catch. It's the wrong'un bowled from the back of the hand and not picked up by the batsman who pushes it uppishly back to Rashid 170/2
View dismissal WTS Porterfield* c Samiullah Shenwari b Dawlat Zadran 119 98 18 0 121.42
36.5 he's chipped it to extra cover! Full ball outside off, looks like it has stopped on him as he goes for to cover drive again. The bat turns in his hand and floats in front of Shenwari who dives low to his left and holds on. His feet did not move there. Afghanistan are back in this. 214/4
View dismissal NJ O'Brien lbw b Rashid Khan 10 23 1 0 43.47
35.2 full at off stump, he's playing for the angle and and has completely missed this. Tries to push it to long-off, but his bat is a couple of inches away from the ball as it strikes his pad right in front of off stump 206/3
View dismissal KJ O'Brien st †Mohammad Shahzad b Amir Hamza 13 19 1 0 68.42
41.5 gone. Superbly done. Oh, what a delivery. He was backing away to make room and the bowler fires it flat, lack of flight and on a length. He comes forward and looks to flick it away but the ball spins away from him and he ends up walking into the shot. Shahzad does the rest 230/7
View dismissal GC Wilson lbw b Dawlat Zadran 0 1 0 0 0.00
36.6 and another! Trapped right in front. Good length, swinging in slightly again, pitches and skids off the pitch, straight at leg stump. Wilson rooted to his crease, nervously tries to get bat on it but doesn't manage to. Up goes for the finger 215/5
View dismissal SR Thompson c sub (Shafiqullah) b Dawlat Zadran 2 7 0 0 28.57
38.5 full and outside off, Thompson drives on the up but cannot place it well. Picks out mid-off who runs an inch or two to his left and snaffles it. Ireland in more than some trouble here. 220/6
View dismissal GH Dockrell lbw b Rashid Khan 12 14 1 0 85.71
44.3 that's the quicker ball. Stays in the crease and plays for the turn. But the ball merely straightens and goes past the inside edge to rap him on the pad. Easy call for the umpire, that hit him in front of middle and leg 246/9
View dismissal TJ Murtagh lbw b Rashid Khan 2 5 0 0 40.00
42.5 gone. That looked plumb. Flat length ball and he expects it to come on with the arm and seeing that it is drifting away, opens up his arms to cut. But he is no position to play it as the ball spins in to him and strikes him on the back pad in front of middle and leg 233/8
J Mulder not out 15 11 2 0 136.36
View dismissal PKD Chase c sub (Shafiqullah) b Dawlat Zadran 8 8 1 0 100.00
46.5 and there's the end. Comes down the track in a pre-meditated move and the bowler makes the adjustment in length. Drops it short and he has to play a forced pull late, gets a top edge for his troubles and gets it off the top edge to long-on who takes it easily 262/10
