View dismissal Mohammad Shahzad c Wilson b Chase 11 23 15 2 0 73.33
4.4 gets some mild movement and Shahzad has edged to wide slip. On a length and angling in, gets it to shape away just enough to take the outside edge as Shahzad plays the angle. Not much feet too and Wilson takes it smartly. Big, big wicket for Ireland 20/2
View dismissal Noor Ali Zadran c Dockrell b Chase 1 12 7 0 0 14.28
2.4 that's a sharp catch at covers. On a length and wide, holding its line outside off and Noor Ali Zadran punches hard away from the body. Does not get to the pitch of it and fails to keep it along the ground. George Dockrell dives forward with the ball dipping on him to snaffle it 11/1
View dismissal Rahmat Shah b Murtagh 8 33 18 1 0 44.44
9.5 gone through him. Plays all across the line does Rahmat Shah and he has paid the price. On a length and coming on straight. Shah tries to jump up and flick it away but the ball keeps a tad low and splinters middle stump. Need a replacement stick 40/3
View dismissal Asghar Stanikzai* b Dockrell 16 27 21 3 0 76.19
10.2 played on. Driving away from the body and it has been dragged back into the stumps. It was a very full ball and well outside off. Brings the bottom hand into play and is early into the shot as he goes for an all expansive drive 44/4
View dismissal Samiullah Shenwari c Murtagh b McBrine 20 64 51 0 0 39.21
26.1 gets down for a slog sweep and he has picked out deep backward square leg. The change of ends works for McBrine immediately. Has to fetch it from outside off and not much turn also. Probably gets it finer than he would have liked and the ball goes to Murtagh who dives forward to snaffle it 97/6
View dismissal Mohammad Nabi run out (Thompson) 13 25 16 1 0 81.25
17.1 Thompson to Samiullah Shenwari, unfortunate run out at the non-striker's end. It was very full and Shenwari hammers it back to the bowler. He has hit it too straight and the ball crashes bang into the stumps at the non-striker's end. The ball went off the bowler's had and the non-striker was backing up 67/5
View dismissal Gulbadin Naib c Balbirnie b Murtagh 51 98 76 4 2 67.10
42.2 another full ball, tries to loft it over mid-off and there is a man in the deep and he picks him out. Not a greatly timed shot as he does get the desired elevation. It was slightly wide outside off, so he probably did not find the middle of the bat 193/7
View dismissal Rashid Khan run out (Porterfield) 56 68 50 4 3 112.00
42.6 Murtagh to Shafiqullah, good length outside off, pushes it out to covers and they take off for a single. There is a direct hit at the striker's end but Ireland's fielders do not seem too excited. He drags the bat but Rashid has been caught short of his crease. This is an important strike. Rashid was well-set and could have powered them to a strong finish. Now, they have been hurt in that regard. Double-wicket maiden and what a time for that - 43rd over of the innings 193/7

View dismissal EC Joyce c †Mohammad Shahzad b Dawlat Zadran 12 15 16 1 1 75.00
3.2 this time Joyce is the only one who has made a mistake. Full ball, no movement, wide outside off. He chases at it with no feet and gets an outside edge that the keeper has made no mistake with...they're going upstairs to check the no-ball and it is fine 18/1
View dismissal PR Stirling b Mohammad Nabi 99 145 114 9 1 86.84
37.4 oh, he's gone. Stirling gone for 99. He cannot believe his luck and is crestfallen at the crease. He was dismissed for 95 in the previous game, a wrong decision from the umpire cost him. And this time he has been castled one short of a century. Wants to play for the spin but misses the line completely as the ball comes on straight with the arm and takes out his off stump 179/4
View dismissal WTS Porterfield* c Rashid Khan b Dawlat Zadran 1 12 8 0 0 12.50
5.6 Rashid Khan holds on at slip and poses like one Mr. Afridi. Good length ball, angled across off stump, tries to cream this on the up through cover, gets a thick edge that flies straight to Rashid at waist height 24/2
View dismissal NJ O'Brien b Samiullah Shenwari 30 73 52 1 0 57.69
27.3 got him! Back of a length outside off, he has offered that gap between bat and pad all along and one has finally snuck through. Plays for the angle and goes for the cut but this one spins back in and rams the off stump 120/3
