OUT! Caught. Gulbadin Naib to Gary Wilson. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot slog sweeping, mis-timed to mid wicket, by Khan. Naib gets six! Wilson cross bats one straight to mid-wicket who makes no mistake with the catch. An emphatic victory for Afghanistan much like the one that came for Ireland on Sunday. Ireland lost soft wickets throughout the innings and it cost them. Apart from a decent knock from Stirling at the top of the order they were terrible value for money today. As for Afghanistan a decent bowling display, but they will have to improve if they are to produce any upsets in the World Cup. This will be a good confidence boost for them which is something they can take from this mini series.
