FOUR! Mohammad Nabi to Stuart Poynter. Off break half volley, down leg side on the front foot working, past fine leg for 4 runs. And that's that, a very good performance from Ireland both batting and bowling. In the last section of their batting innings they were cautious, but they got runs when they needed. Afghanistan didn't really take advantage of the wicket which spun a lot, Ireland however did. This result also concludes the ODI series, a 2-2 draw is the result. Next up for the two teams is a Test Match between the two.
