Pleasantly surprised to find out Bangladesh is producing the broadcast for this series and its live on youtube. I was fairly certain that the stream would be on youtube and thought it was cool that BD is producing it.

Tino Mawoyo is in the commentary box as usual!

Hope they will broadcast the AFG vs ZIM series as well.

Great result for Ireland they really are a smart side and they fight to the end

Afghanistan on the other hand are all power and raw talent which serves them well and makes them dangerous, but their selections really leave me scratching my head at times. Playing only 3 front line bowlers plus Nabi the all-rounder was always going to bite them on the arse considering they don't have many part time options. The odd selection made even more surprising when they chose to bat first, Ireland were always going to target Shinwari.

Great innings by Andy Balbirnie, top shelf.

Hazratallah is a talent for Afghanistan his hitting is up their with the best I've seen, hopefully Zimbabwe have been watching him, keep it wide of off stump don't put it in his arc

One would have thought that Rashid and Mujeeb alone would be enough for Ireland's brittle batting lineup. But credit to Ireland for handling the AFG spinners with much more aplomb than Bangladesh has.

Ireland draw the series 2-2. So happy to see this, Afghanistan being shown their place

Terrific result for the Irish. Was rooting for them since a lot of Bangladeshis now believe Afghanistan are a better team than us and will win the World Cup before we do (the latter is theoretically possible but idiotic to say with certainty).

The Irish are having a resurgence after several years of terrible form from 2015-2018.

Yes good to see the Irish do well against the Afghans in foreign conditions, the thing about the Irish is they fight to the end and despite not always having the better side they can grind out a result.

Zimbabwe could learn a lot from them
