1 team needs 118 runs along with the other takes 9 wickets. A first-ever Test win is at risk for each Ireland and Afghanistan towards the end of the 3rd day’s play. Definitely there’s enough inspiration to not throw the towel in. Presented just how little Test cricket either side plays, the next authentic opportunity to go one-up appears a fair distance away.
Afghanistan had an hour to bargain today, with the possibility of shifting onto an extra 30 minutes of expansion if they hoped to chase this down in the evening, however the person who had to explode, Mohammad Shahzad, shut shop. It took him 23 deliveries to remove the mark, and then another ten deliveries to ultimately get strangled down leg off Andy McBrine to conclude what was such an uncharacteristically tame inning.
