The Presentation ceremony...
Earlier in the day, Afghanistan didn't make the best choice as after opting to bat first things didn't pan out as they hoped for. They lost wickets at regular intervals and eventually, it was chased down pretty easily by Ireland.
Afghanistan were always behind the game as they had very less to bowl at. Mohammad Nabi struck twice in an over but it didn't help them to create pressure after that. The other bowlers tried their best but they created very less chances and it didn't create any panic for Ireland. A very tough situation for Afghanistan as they have to win the next game to keep the series alive.
It was a watchful start for Ireland as they kept things in control throughout the innings. The stand between Andy Balbirnie and Lorcan Tucker of 65 took the game away as they scored the bulk of runs. Both fell but there was not much to chase after that and George Dockrell, in the end, finish things off single handedly.
A comprehensive win for Ireland and with this win they go 2-0 up in this 5-match series. Tough time for Afghanistan as the next game is must win for them to keep the series alive.
