Ball by Ball Live Score Commentary

That’s all from our side for this game. Thanks for joining us. See you soon.

Asghar Afghan: The first game of the series is very important but good that we won. Our top order played some loose shots but I am happy the way Nabi and Najib batted. We want our young guys to get some exposure because our main plan is the World Cup.”

Mohammad Nabi is the Man of the Match. “The batting side is always under pressure when you are 50 for 5,” he says. “But we kept taking singles and doubles.”

Paul Stirling: We didn’t get much runs in the Powerplay but all credit to the bowlers the way they bowled in the first ten overs. But then we couldn’t get any wickets. [On Thompson injury] It was a slight niggle at the start, but we will access it tomorrow.

Time for the presentation ceremony.

9.48pm A target of 133 was never going to be enough but credit to the Ireland bowlers who made a match out of it. They had Afghanistan 50 for 5 in the eighth over but Mohammad Nabi used his experience to steer the chase in the company of Najibullah Zadran. The two added 86 in 72 balls to take the side home with four balls to spare. Ireland have now lost eight T20Is in a row to Afghanistan.
