BALL BY BALL
48.3 - R Khan to P Chase
Rashid Khan to Peter Chase. Leg spinner length ball, middle stump on the front foot Slog, leading edge in the air uncontrolled back to bowler, by Khan. <br><br>Two in two and Rashid wraps up the victory for Afghanistan. It was a close run affair with Ireland hanging in all the way through the innings, unfortunately nobody could go on and get them over the line. Balbirnie looked the most promising with a half-century but then the next highest was Wilson with 38, too many starts and they will need to convert in the next couple of games if they want to get a win. It wasn't a high-scoring affair but they usually make for tense games which is what we saw today. Afghanistan lead 1-0 in the three match series so a win in the next ODI and the trophy is in their hands.
48.2 - R Khan to G Wilson
Rashid Khan to Gary Wilson. Leg spinner length ball, middle stump on the front foot sweeping, missed to. Finally Rashid Khan gets a wicket. He has been trying all day and eventually he spins one past the bat and into middle stump. With that is probably Ireland's hopes for a victory.
48.1 - R Khan to B Rankin
Googly length ball, down leg side on the front foot working, hit pad to silly mid on for 1 run, shy attempt by Khan.
