BALL BY BALL
Ov 20: 0 W 1 0 1 1 ( 3 Runs, 1 Wkt )
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.
