Test: Afghanistan v Ireland (Day 3 - Latest)
Tolerance Oval, Abu Dhabi, 1 March.
Afghanistan 155 & 218 (75.4 overs: Hashmatullah Shahidi 55, Rahmanullah Gurbaz 46, Noor Ali 32, Naveed Zadran 25; Craig Young 3-24, Barry McCarthy 3-48, Mark Adair 3-56, Theo van Woerkom 1-43)
Ireland 263 & 0/0 (0 overs)
A determined Ireland take the field for Day 3 (ACB)
Great start by Ireland as Mark Adair traps Hashmatullah lbw with one that nips back, quickly followed by one from Barry McCarthy that comes back a long way. Huge roar of delight from the Pembroke man. Boy, did he enjoy that. They are keeping it tight with runs hard to come by. Stubborn 6th wicket stand ended by Young as Janat chips to Balbirnie at midwicket. Seamers continue to impress having taken all 17 wickets so far. The lead is 65 with just four wickets left, Make that 3 wickets left as a beauty from Young sends the off stump of Gurbaz cartwheeling. That's lunch with Ireland in complete control bowling 26 overs in the morning session taking four wickets for the addition of 48 runs, the lead just 74. McCarthy and Adair resume after the break, 200 raised before Van Woerkom takes the ball and one turns to find the edge of Rahman's bat, straight to Balbirnie at second slip, an Irish spinner finally has a wicket. McCarthy yorks an uncomfortable looking Nijat and number 11 Zahir looks no better! Can Ireland finish this quickly, Zadran will surely be having a swing now with van Woekrom lobbing it up to him. He tries swinging at Craig Young and loses his off stump with the lead at 110. 'Nelson' will win it for Ireland but it will surely be a tense chase against the Afghan spinners.

Test: Afghanistan v Ireland (Day Two - Close)
Tolerance Oval, 29 February.
Afghanistan 155 & 134/3 (37 overs: Hashmatullah Shahidi 53*, Noor Ali 32, Rahmanullah Gurbaz 23*; Mark Adair 2-23, Barry McCarthy 1-25)
Ireland 263 (83.4 overs: Paul Stirling 52, Curtis Campher 49, Lorcan Tucker 46, Andy McBrine 38, Harry Tector 32; Zia-Ur-Rehman 5-64, Naveed Zadran 3-59, Nijat Masood 1-38, Zahir Khan 1-67)
Paul Stirling who scored 52 in a partnership of 80 with Lorcan Tucker (ACB)
Not the start Ireland wanted as Harry Tector is trapped lbw by Naveed. He reviewed but in vain as hitting middle/leg. Paul Stirling joined by Lorcan Tucker. Important stand as Ireland look to hopefully build a big lead - they have added 34 in 14 overs this morning as drinks are taken. Ireland take the first innings lead as the 50 stand comes up after 97 balls. Paul Stirling reaches his half century from 87 balls (7 fours) but is then bowled by Zahir Khan on the stroke of lunch. Could that be a turning point. He and Lorcan Tucker (32*) had shared an Irish record stand of 80 for the 6th wicket. The lead is 31 - can they extend it to 100 and beyond? Tucker and McBrine add 30 before Tucker pushes at a wide one from Zia-Ur-Rehman and gives a straightforward catch to slip. Decision time for Ireland - total defence isn't going to work here, there's an unplayable delivery just round the corner so is measured attack the best option for the new batsman Mark Adair? The lead is 78 at the afternoon Drinks break with 48 more overs scheduled in the day. Next session an important one for both sides. Two powerful sweeps for boundaries by Mark Adair but third time unlucky as he's lbw for 15 giving Zia-Ur-Rahman his fourth wicket. Plumb and there goes Ireland's final review! Ireland take the lead past 100 as Afghanistan lose their last review - all in the hands of the umpires now! McCarthy plays back to Zia-Ur-Rahman and 'walks' before the lbw is given, easy one that for umpire Kettleborough. New ball taken immediately it is available but the first day pace and bounce seems to have gone from the pitch somewhat. Andy McBrine goes on the attack but skies to mid-off and the Ireland innings ends with the lead 108. It's Adair again who gets the breakthrough in the second innings - courtesy of a stunning catch low down at gully by Moor. Adair has another and it's the huge wicket of Rahmat Shah. Little bit of away movement and easy catch for Lorcan Tucker - Ireland ecstatic. The hosts fighting back as Noor Ali and Hashmatullah chip away with a 3rd wicket stand. Spin hasn't worked so far - time for Craig Young. McBrine switches ends and almost has immediate success as umpires call saves Noor Ali from an lbw review. Another review but again no joy as Young to Hashmatullah Shahidi was going over. Poor review - always looked high. Stand passes 50 as Afghans close in on parity. The return of McCarthy does the trick as he gets one to rear at Noor Ali who gives simple catch to Adair at gully. Ireland needed that. Can they get a few more in the last half hour of the day? Gurbaz hits Andy McBrine and Barry McCarthy for sixes and they are now in the lead. Day ends with Afghans 26 ahead and 7 wickets in hand. Ireland still slightly on top but not much in it with a nervy chase on a wearing pitch on the cards.

Test: Afghanistan v Ireland (Day 1 close)
Abu Dhabi, 28 February.
Afghanistan 155 (54.5 overs: Ibrahim Zadran 53, Karim Janat 41*, Hashmatullah Shahidi 20; Mark Adair 5-39, Curtis Campher 2-13, Craig Young 2-31, Barry McCarthy 1-28)
Ireland 100/4 (31 overs; Curtis Campher 49, Harry Tector 32*, Paul Stirling 2*; Zia-Ur-Rehman 2-13, Naveed 2-32)
Action from the Tolerance Oval (David Townsend)
Ireland lost the toss and have three debutants - Barry McCarthy, Craig Young and Theo van Woerkom. Mark Adair gets the breakthrough as Noor Ali edges a drive to Andy Balbirnie at second slip, and has a second in the same over as Rahmat Shah loses off stump. Great start at 11 for 2. However, after drinks the hosts have broken the shackles with a third wicket stand of 52 in 72 balls but nearly ended as Balbirnie drops tough chance at slip off McCarty - Hashmatullah on 19 escapes.But just one run later he is strangled down the leg side and it's a first Test wicket for Barry McCarthy. Lunch comes with honours even at 86 for 3. Great first over back from Craig Young sees him beat the bat a couple of times and an lbw shout against Zadran that was not reviewed which DRS showed would have been given OUT! Then, in just the next over a third wicket for Adair, as Gurbaz toe-ends a flat footed waft through to Tucker. Could have been five down with a review of course. Young cleans up Nasir Jamal in his second over, nipping one back to hit the top of middle stump, some shaping away and some holding their line, great bowling. Young can do nothing wrong at the moment! He claims the big wicket of Zadran glancing to a diving Tucker, strangled! Another poor decision not to review costs Adair a fourth wicket! Balbirnie burned one early on so seems reluctant to risk the second - costly mistakes. But Adair has his fourth as another loose drive pouched at second slip. Ireland rampant. Frustrating 8th wicket stand is ended by a truly awful hoik by Naveed who skies Campher to McBrine at midwicket. Two balls later and it's another for Campher with a good ball that is edged and Lorcan Tucker has a fourth catch. A perfect afternoon is completed as Mark Adair has his 5th - superb effort, he has been exceptional. Afghans lost 7 wickets for 69 in that session. Lucky escapes for Balbirnie who is dropped at slip on 0, survives a run out direct hit and almost chops on. Luck runs out as he is trapped lbw by Naveed. Played around his pad, decided to review but in vain. Now it's PJ Moor in the thick of it - bowled off a no-ball, then given out lbw but reviews successfully. His luck runs out too as he chops on off Naveed. Curtis Campher has been positive and he is unbeaten on 30 at better than a run a ball as Ireland reach 56 for 2 at drinks. 21 overs left in the day. Third wicket stand reaches 50 from 82 balls as Ireland continue to be in the ascendancy. Campher goes late in the day as he edges behind off Zia. Ireland opt for a nightwatchman Van Woerkom - with 15 minutes left in the day. Gamble doesn't work as he is bowled by a beauty from Zia. Close of play sees Ireland on 100 for 4, just 55 behind. They have had the better of the day but still a long way to go.
