All|Overs 1-50
4

to Ed Joyce, FOUR, nice way to get going, friendly pace from and his short-ball is easy pickings, Joyce swivels across and pulls it over mid-wicket, one bounce and over the ropes

4

Zadran to Stirling, FOUR, that's a cracking shot, on a good length and well outside off, Stirling leans forward, drives it on the up and splits the gap past point, no need to run for those

6

to Ed Joyce, SIX, .. and the free-hit is taken full advantage of by Ed Joyce, length delivery on the stumps, he clears his left leg and sends it high and over long-on for a maximum

W

Zadran to Ed Joyce, out Caught by Mohammad Shahzad!! Ed Joyce falls cheaply and Ireland have lost an early wicket. Loose shot from the opener, this was full and wide outside off, lured Ed Joyce into playing at that, he went with hard hands - bat well away from his body and feeds an outside edge to the keeper. The umpire checks for a possible front-foot no-ball, but Zadran is fine on that count this time. Ed Joyce c Mohammad Shahzad b Zadran 12(16) [4s-1 6s-1]

4

to Stirling, FOUR, nicely played by Stirling, fraction short and on the stumps, he's quick to rock back and plays a short-arm jab over mid-wicket, almost went all the way, bounced just in front of the ropes

W

Zadran to Porterfield, out Caught by Rashid Khan!! That's a big blow for Ireland. This was full and angled across the left-hander, Porterfield's feet went nowhere as he aimed an extravagant drive, gets a thick edge to first slip where Rashid takes it with ease - reverse cupped. Second wicket for Zadran and Ireland are in some trouble now. Porterfield c Rashid Khan b Zadran 1(8)

4

Zadran to Niall O'Brien, FOUR, that's a fine way to get going, half-volley outside off, Niall O'Brien leans into the drive, plays with an open face and finds the gap past point

6

to Stirling, SIX, valiant effort at deep mid-wicket but the fielder only manages to tip the ball over the ropes. Stirling went down on his knees to a flatter ball and swung it towards deep mid-wicket. Shenwari was the man in the deep, he timed his jump perfectly but it was always going over him

4

to Stirling, FOUR, spanking drive through extra-cover! Brilliant shot. It's a full ball all right and Stirling climbs into it

4

to Stirling, FOUR, walks across the stumps, gets down low, and picks his spot backward of square. Absolutely nails the sweep along the turf

OT

Hamza to Stirling, 1 run, pushes it through the covers and brings up a half-century. He's been in some really good form at the top

4

to Stirling, FOUR, swept away for four. This time Stirling doesn't move as far across as he did last time. Picks the off-break from leg-stump and dispatches it to the fine leg boundary

4

to Stirling, FOUR, muscles this off the back foot straight past mid-off. It's a difficult shot to hit, especially with the pace at bowled this. But he's able to hit it from a back of a length with a vertical bat

W

to Niall O'Brien, out Bowled!! has snaked one right through the gate. Flat and quick through the air, the ball still grips the pitch and turns back in. O'Brien really wasn't expecting this kind of purchase and is shaping to cut it away. But it rips in, cramps him up and goes through to hit off stump. Afghanistan have broken through. Niall O'Brien b 30(52) [4s-1]

4

to Balbirnie, FOUR, drops it short on leg stump and is put away to the fence. A real freebie for the new batsman. Balbirnie doesn's miss out

4

Hamza to Balbirnie, FOUR, nicely played by Balbirnie, gets down on his knees, uses his reach to good effect and sweeps it behind square on the on-side, rolls away to the fence

4

to Stirling, FOUR, poor ball from , drops it short and on the stumps, Stirling rocks back and pulls it over mid-wicket, couple of bounces and over the ropes

4

to Stirling, FOUR, lovely shot, fraction short and wide of off, Stirling gets forward and drives it on the up, beats the man getting across from long-off

4

Hamza to Balbirnie, FOUR, expensive over from Hamza, pushed through quicker and flatter outside off, Balbirnie was making room on the cut, gets a toe-edge that rolls away through the vacant slip cordon

4

Khan to Balbirnie, FOUR, that's a fine shot, read the length well, got a big stride forward and plays the slog sweep, beats mid-wicket and rolls away to the fence. It was the wrong 'un from

4

Zadran to Stirling, FOUR, full and wide from Zadran, Stirling swipes and ends up getting it past the fielder at backward point. More work to do for Hamza, he slides and pulls the ball back in - but in doing so, he was touching the rope skirtings, it's a boundary

W

to Stirling, out Bowled!! Stirling misses out on a century once again, this time he was much more closer - OUT for 99. This was pushed through flatter and on the off-stump line, went straight on after pitching, Stirling was playing for the turn, this went with the angle and hit the off-stump. Stirling is gutted as he walks off disconsolately. Stirling b 99(114) [4s-9 6s-1]

4

to Wilson, FOUR, nicely played! This was fired on his pads, he went down low, reversed his stance and swept it behind square on the off-side for a boundary

4

to Balbirnie, FOUR, much needed boundary for Ireland, Balbirnie leans into the drive, plays it on the up and splits the gap between cover and mid-off

4

Khan to Wilson, byes, FOUR, error from Shahzad. He's let one through. A flat leg-break, pushed through outside off. Wilson misses his cut and Shahzad misses it as well

4

to Balbirnie, FOUR, that's nicely executed. A reverse-sweep over backward point for Balbirnie. Got into position quickly and caught by surprise

4

to Balbirnie, FOUR, fired full outside off, Balbirnie throws his hands at the ball and edges it fine. Lucky runs. But such an outcome is always on the cards if you miss your length. In this case, wanted to fire it in the blockhole but didn't quite it land it on the mark

OT

to Balbirnie, 1 run, works it through the mid-wicket region and brings up a half-century. Ireland needed someone in the middle order to step up today and Balbirnie has answered the call

4

Zadran to Balbirnie, FOUR, makes some room, exposes his stumps and crashes a length ball through extra-cover. That's a special shot. He absolutely nailed the timing

4

Khan to Wilson, FOUR, top-edges the sweep and it runs away to the boundary. just hasn't had things going his way. The ball spits off the pitch as Wilson sinks low to sweep but it lobs over keeper Shahzad's head off a top-edge

4

Khan to Balbirnie, FOUR, he's chipped this in the gap; what a beautiful shot. Just a mere chip, that's all it is. Picks the googly early and lifts it inside-out over extra-cover and into the boundary

4

Khan to Balbirnie, FOUR, stoops across and wallops the sweep off the stumps. He picked the bones out of that. For once on this tour, doesn't have many answers

6

Zadran to Balbirnie, SIX, he's smoked that over extra-cover! Boy, he's doing it for Ireland. A full ball outside off, Balbirnie clears his front leg and smashes it with a lot of bottom hand

4

Zadran to Wilson, FOUR, boundary to finish the over. Ireland are cruising home. Wilson picks the off-cutter and flogs it over mid-wicket. He didn't quite get it off the middle but gets enough of it to reach the boundary

4

Khan to Balbirnie, FOUR, it's the sweep again. This very shot has put off his game completely today. Does the trick again as Balbirnie spanks it through mid-wicket and beats the diving fielder

4

Zadran to Wilson, FOUR, that's it. Ireland are on the board on this tour! An overpitched delivery outside off which Wilson drills to the extra-cover boundary for the win

4

to Mohammad Shahzad, FOUR, short and wide, Shahzad slashes it away behind backward point. That's not the delivery you want to be bowling, especially when there is so much help off the pitch

W

to Noor Ali, out Caught by Dockrell!! Excellent catch diving forward from Dockrell. Ireland have their early breakthrough. Good bowling from to invite the drive by keeping it full and wide in conditions where the ball is doing something. Noor Ali goes after it, but is unable to keep it down. The ball is dying in front of cover-point where Dockrell makes a really good effort and plucks it inches from the turf. Noor Ali c Dockrell b 1(7)

4

to Mohammad Shahzad, FOUR, that has been smashed with disdain! Dismissive from Shahzad. Stands upright to a short of length delivery and smokes it well in front of square

W

to Mohammad Shahzad, out Caught by Stirling!! Edged and gone. Massive wicket. The dangerous Shahzad is gone cheaply. These are different conditions and the new ball is assisting Ireland pacers. A good length delivery just outside off, Shahzad pokes at it tentatively. He is basically thrusting his hands at the ball. It holds its line a touch and takes the edge which carries comfortably to Wilson at first slip. Mohammad Shahzad c Wilson b 11(15) [4s-2]

4

to Rahmat, FOUR, won't mind that. He's got Rahmat driving a ball which is well wide of off. Rahmat plays it really well this time though and crashes it through the covers

4

to Stanikzai, FOUR, rocks back and pulls this short of length delivery in front of square. It's not short enough from to trouble Stanikzai

4

to Stanikzai, FOUR, these short balls haven't worked for . Doesn't have the pace to rush the batsmen. There have been at least three pull shots played in front of square off him already. Stanikzai gets proper hold of this one

W

to Rahmat, out Bowled!! Plays right across the line and the middle stump has snapped in two. Back of a length delivery which skids on and goes right through Rahmat to hit middle stump. Afghanistan in some trouble here. Rahmat b 8(18) [4s-1]

4

to Stanikzai, FOUR, slides in with the arm but drifts down leg and Stanikzai helps it along its way to the fine leg boundary

W

to Stanikzai, out Bowled!! Another one. Stanikzai is lured into a drive and he chops it back onto the stumps. Really smart from to go against his natural instincts and slow the pace right down. Stanikzai goes really hard at it, rather than focussing on timing. This is a great start from Ireland. Stanikzai b 16(21) [4s-3]

4

to Nabi, FOUR, what timing on that drive from Nabi. He didn't seem to have hit that hard at all but the ball raced away through point. Tossed up outside off from , Nabi reaches out and creams it beautifully

W

Thompon to henwari, out Nabi Run Out!! That' an unfortunate way to go for Nabi, Thompon i till tending to hi finger - it wa truck that fiercely by henwari. On a good length and on the tump, henwari drilled it powerfully back toward the bowler. Thompon wa looking to make a top, the ball caught hi fingertip and crahed into the middle-tump. Nabi wa backing up and had no chance. Nabi run out ( Thompon) 13(16) [4-1]

4

Thompon to Naib, FOUR, fuller length delivery on hi pad, Naib get inide the line and clip it to the right of mid-on. The fielder tumble and get a hand onto it, get up and chae - but the ball win the race

4

to Naib, FOUR, poor ball from , short and wide of off, cracked away square past point for a boundary

W

McBrine to Shenwari, out Caught by Murtagh!! Shenwari's patient vigil ends! This was tossed up on the leg-stump line, Shenwari went down on the sweep, doesn't bother to keep it down and picks the man to perfection - at deep backward square leg. He didn't have to move an inch, watches it all along, slides forward and holds on. Shenwari c Murtagh b McBrine 20(51)

4

to Rashid Khan, FOUR, top-edge and four! Rashid went for the sweep, the ball bounced on him, got a top-edge that clears the fielder at short square leg

6

to Rashid Khan, SIX, that's a juicy full-toss and it has deposited out of the ground, Rashid gets across and thumps it over mid-wicket

6

McBrine to Naib, SIX, clean strike down the ground! The length on this off-break is pretty full so Naib is right to the pitch of the ball as he plants a stride forward. Such a lovely swing of the hands, straight back over the bowler's head

6

McBrine to Rashid Khan, SIX, brilliant shot from Rashid. He gallops down to the pitch of the flighted delivery and hammers it over mid-off. The fielder was up and all he had to do was clear the infield. But he did much more than that

4

Thompon to Naib, FOUR, beautifully whipped away off the pad. The timing from Naib i ublime; more importantly, the placement i pot on. Right between two fielder in the deep - long leg and quare leg

6

to Rashid Khan, SIX, takes full toll of the short ball. It's not all that short, but Rashid is on the back foot in a flash and bludgeons it over the mid-wicket boundary

4

Thompon to Rahid Khan, FOUR, walk acro the tump lightly and whip the off-cutter to the quare leg boundary. Even a deperate dive in the deep can do nothing to top the ball. Rahid racing toward a half-century. What a recovery he ha led

4

Thompon to Rahid Khan, FOUR, get to the half-century in ome tyle. Thi guy i a upertar. After all hi exploit with the ball on thi tour, he come out and mahe a fifty to recue Afghanitan from the doldrum. It' a hort and wide delivery thi one and Rahid plahe it over backward point. The ball gallop to the fence

4

to Naib, FOUR, lovely shot! Width on offer from , Naib gets on top of the bounce and hammers it over extra cover for another boundary

6

to Naib, SIX, that's effortless from Naib, leg-stump half-volley, Naib gets inside the line and flicks it high and over backward square leg for a maximum

OT

to Naib, 1 run, tossed up on off, Naib drops it in front of cover-point and raises his fifty

4

to Rashid Khan, FOUR, Ireland are losing their basics, full-toss outside off, driven past the diving fielder at cover for a boundary

W

to Naib, out Caught by Balbirnie!! Naib has holed out to the deep! A much needed wicket for Ireland and , this was full and wide of off, Naib went for the big lofted drive - doesn't get elevation needed and finds Balnirnie to perfection at long-off. Naib c Balbirnie b 51(76) [4s-4 6s-2]

W

to Shafiqullah, out Rashid Khan Run Out!! Afghanistan have lost both set batsmen in quick succession. A risky single attempted and Porterfield's direct hit at the striker's end finds Rashid short. Shafiq pushed this one in front of cover and set-off for a quick single, Rashid was slow to start and then hesitated - had no chance once there was a direct throw. Rashid Khan run out (Porterfield) 56(50) [4s-4 6s-3]

4

to Shafiqullah, FOUR, drops one short and on the stumps, Shafiq has ample time to rock back and pull it past square leg for a boundary

6

to Shafiqullah, SIX, that's a fine blow from Shafiq, this was an atempted slower wide yorker, Shafiq turned it into a full-toss and hammered it back over the bowler's head, went sailing over the stands for a maximum

4

to Dawlat Zadran, leg byes, FOUR, full and on Zadran's pads, he was looking to flick and missed, brushed his pads and rolled away to the long leg fence

6

to Shafiqullah, SIX, lovely shot! Length delivery on the stumps, Shafiq clears his left leg and heaves it high and over long-on for a maximum

6

to Shafiqullah, SIX, Shafiq is playing a fine cameo here! missed his yorker, ended up offering a handy full-toss, Shafiq gets under it and swings it high and over mid-wicket for a maximum

4

to Shafiqullah, FOUR, 21 from the over! Slower ball outside off, Shafiq swung across the line, gets a thick edge that lobs the keeper and rolls away to the third man fence

6

to Shafiqullah, SIX, tossed up on the stumps, Shafiq gets across, bends down low and sweeps it high and over square leg for a maximum

OT

to Shafiqullah, 1 run, tossed up well outside off, Shafiq slugs it wide of long-on, Shafiq wants a second run and is half-way down the track, sent back by his partner. The throw from the keeper is awful and Shafiq survives

6

to Dawlat Zadran, SIX, Zadran ends the innings with an almighty swing and sends the ball sailing over the ropes at wide mid-wicket, got underneath this full-toss and packed a punch on the shot
