Karim Janat to Simi Singh. Half volley, outside off stump moves in front Scoop, hit pad to short extra cover for no runs, fielded by Shenwari. It's been a day Afghanistan and Hazratullah Zazai will never forget. A superb 162 not out and a world record score posted which was always going to be a tough ask for Ireland. Even though the opening pair of Paul Stirling and Kevin O'Brien got off to a good start the run-rate never lowered and the wickets began to tumble in the middle overs. Brilliant performance all round and a great game for the spectators to watch, unless your a fan of bowling. Both teams will be back tomorrow for the third and final T20, see you then.
