BALL BY BALL
M U Rahman
Rankin expecting turn, it doesn't come, and the ball skids through to hit the front pad. No bat, but it could have been missing leg stump. A very close call. Either way, the umpire thought it was out, and that's the end of the game. Afghanistan dominate with the ball, and that sees them come out as comfortable winners. All the bowlers contributed, but Aftab Alam, with his career best, was the pick. Ireland had their chances, though. They had the hosts at 81-6, but let things slip in the field to allow them to post a decent total. A very poor showing with the bat meant that the away side got nowhere near. So the hosts go 2-1 up in the series, and there is just one more left to go, which is on Sunday. Can Ireland level it up? Or will Afghanistan seal it 3-1? Join us again to find out.
