266/9 (50.0/50)
230 (47.1/50)
Afghanistan beat Ireland by 36 runs
Right! That's all from this ODI series. Afghanistan take the series and also bag vital points for World Super League. The Afghanistan players pose with the trophy and celebrate. We thank you for your company for this brilliant series. For now, it is goodbye from our end. Take care and cheers!
The winning skipper, Asghar Afghan, starts by saying that he is pleased with the performance in the series. Tells that the winning combination is important and he is happy with the series win. Wants to continue the good performance in the coming games as well.
Ireland skipper, Andy Balbirnie, starts by praising the performance of Stirling and tells they don't have words to describe how well he has played. Tells no one could give him support. Says that there is a lot of cricket coming up for them and they need to be better than this.
Paul Stirling is named Player of the series for his fantastic performance in the series. He is disappointed that his team could not collect points from the series. He adds that they were in good positions in the match, but couldn't capitalize and finish the game off. Also remembers Roy Torrens, who passed away recently and adds that a lot of people are already missing him so much.
Rashid Khan is named the Player of the Match for his contribution with both bat and ball. He says that he is happy to win the award almost after 15 games. Tells that he tried to put pressure by bowling dot balls. Says in the last two games, he bowled a bit wide and it was easier for them to score. Wanted to bowl wicket-to-wicket in this game. Adds that he has been working hard on his batting. Tells that he backs himself to score the runs. Is pleased with the result. Hopes to get a chance higher up the order with the bat. Dedicates the award to his late mom and dad.
Stay tuned for the presentation!
Earlier in the game, after struggling early on, decent hands from Afghan, Naib and Rashid took the team above the score of 250. Mujeeb and Naveen, the number 10 and 11 of the team, hit a few lusty blows to take the team's score to 266. Ireland were impressive with the ball. They were hit in the first 2 overs but they pulled back things nicely with Young taking 3 in the Powerplay. The spinners then came into the attack and kept things really tight. Simi took a 3-fer. However, they gave away a little too many in the final 10 with the last 3 Afghan batters making handy contributions. Eventually, those runs from the last few overs became the difference.
The Afghan bowlers were superb throughout the game! Despite the onslaught from Stirling from one end, they kept their cool and kept things nice and tight. Rashid, who wasn't at his best in the first two games with the ball, shone like a diamond in this game. He picked up 4 wickets while Mujeeb and Naib got 2 and 1 respectively. Pacer Naveen got the last wicket and closed things for his side.
Chasing the total of 267, Ireland started nicely with Stirling going bang, bang from the start. McCollum and Balbirnie failed to get going and departed at the other end but Stirling continued. He made useful stands with the likes of Tector, Campher and Tucker. He got to his 12th ODI ton in the process and smashed 6 sixes and 9 boundaries. However, once he was dismissed, they lost the plot. With the asking rate going upwards, the Ireland batters failed to get going and kept losing their wickets. And eventually, they fell short by quite a few runs.
Handshakes all around and smiles in the Afghanistan camp. A fine, fine performance from Afghanistan as they whitewash Ireland in the 3-game series. Stirling's ton kept them in the game but once he was removed, things went down the barrel for them and eventually, the Afghan spinners stiffled them in the run chase to register a comfortable victory.

Naveen-ul-Haq To Andy McBrine OUT!
OUT! LBW! Three reds on the Ball Tracker! That's that. A length ball on middle, McBrine looks to work it on the leg side but misses and gets hit on the pads. Afghanistan players appeal and the umpire raises his finger. Andy takes the review as the last hope. Replays show that there was no bat involved. Ball Tracker shows Three reds and the original decision stands. AFGHANISTAN WIN BY 36 RUNS.
McBrine has been given out LBW! He has gone for the review. Looked gonner to the naked eyes. Replays roll in. Ultra Edge detects nothing. Ball Tracker shows three reds.
Josh Little is the last man in for Ireland.

Rashid Khan To Simi Singh OUT!
OUT! RUN OUT! Comedy of errors, and in the end , Afghanistan manage to get the wicket. A tossed up ball around off, Simi goes for the slog but ends up hitting it off the toe end. The ball goes high in the air towards mid off. Shahidi goes behind and tries to catch but makes a mess of it. However, Nabi, coming from long off is alert as he sends a bullet throw to the keeper as the batters try to take the second. Gurbaz takes the bails off. Third umpire has been called for. Replays roll in and it shows Simi is short.
Is that a run out? Oh yes! It is.

OUT! RUN OUT! Direct hits are always dangerous. A length ball around off, Singh pushes it softly towards covers and calls his partner for a quick run. Shahidi there at covers is quick to the ball and ends up getting a direct hit at the striker's end. There was slight hesitation and that was enough for Adair to lose his wicket. It is referred upstairs and replays find that Adair was well short there.
Direct hit now. Has Afghanistan got the number 7? They look confident. And replays show why. Adair is short.

DRINKS! The game hangs in the balance with 89 runs needed from the last 15 overs. Rashid first broke a 61-run stand between Tucker and Stirling in his first over as he removed Tucker and then got the better of Campher. Stirling, meanwhile, has batted beautifully and has completed his 12th ODI ton. Can he stay till the end and take his team home? or will Afghanistan complete a 3-0 whitewash? Interesting last 15 overs coming up.

NOT OUT! Missing the stumps by some margin. Afghanistan lose both their reviews. This is tossed up and around off, it spins in as Stirling looks to go for the sweep. He misses to get hit on the pad and it goes towards the leg side as they go for a loud appeal. Not out says the umpire. But Ahmadi is convinced and so is the keeper. They eventually go for the review. Replays roll in and it shows on the Ball Tracker that the ball will miss the stumps. Afghanistan burn both their reviews quickly.
Another loud appeal! Turned down again. Afghanistan have gone for the review again. Javed is very confident. So is the keeper and that has made them go for the review. Let's see if there is any bat. Nothing on Ultra Edge. Here comes the Ball Tracker. Missing the stumps.

He looks to hit it over the cover fielder but ends up hitting it off the toe end. It goes straight towards the fielder. It keeps low but Shahidi there lunges forward and gobbles the chance sharply. Rashid is fired up.

DRINKS! It has been an even session of play until now. Ireland have managed to keep the scoreboard ticking, courtesy of some excellent batting from Paul Stirling. Afghanistan though would be happy as they have managed to eke out 2 wickets and Rashid is still yet to bowl a ball. Interesting to see how Stirling plays Rashid as the pitch has started slowing down with plenty of turn on offer.

Mohammad Nabi To Andy Balbirnie OUT!
OUT! TAKEN! Nabi strikes now! Balbirnie stands and stares the surface before walking off. Nabi tossed it up and outside off, Balbirnie goes for the sweep. He expects the ball to turn but this goes straight. The ball goes in the mitts of the keeper and Afghanistan roar an appeal. The umpire raises his finger after taking his time.

Mohammad Nabi To Andy Balbirnie
Flatter on off, Balbirnie looks to defend but misses and gets hit on the pads. Huge appeal there from Nabi but the umpire is umnoved. Reckon the impact might have been outside off.
