LIVE SCORES - Afghanistan vs Ireland - 3rd T20I

Current T20I Form Afganistan and Ireland:

Ireland have done it yet again. They have beaten the strong Afghanistan side in the 2nd T20I by 5 wickets to attain a 2-0 lead in the 5 match series.

Afghanistan batted first and they could only manage to post a modest total of 122 for 8 in 20 overs. Rahmanullah Gurbaz and Usman Ghani lost their wickets cheaply. Under pressure, Ibrahim Zadran played a wonderful knock of 17 in 13 balls, hitting 4 fours before being dismissed by Curtis Campher. Najibullah Zadran also was dismissed cheaply by Campher. Hasmatullah Shahidi held one end intact and scored 36 but took 42 balls to make those runs. It put a dent on the scoring rate of Afghanistan. The lower middle order couldn't produce anything special and Afghanistan were restricted to an under par total of 122 for 8 in 20 overs.

During the chase, Ireland lost their key batter Paul Stirling early on in the innings. Post his dismissal, the skipper Andy Balbirnie and Lorcan Tucker were involved in a match winning 2nd wicket partnership of 65 runs. Tucker made 27 in 28 balls while Balbirnie smashed 46 in 36 balls. After both these batters were dismissed, George Dockrell in the middle order took responsibility over his shoulders to take his team over the line. He smashed 25 not out in 19 balls to take Ireland home by the end of the 19th over with 5 wickets in hand.
