However, the man for this occasion was Mohammad Nabi this time. The all-rounder smashed 81 runs off just 36 balls including 6 fours and 7 massive sixes. He guided Afghanistan to a handsome score of 209 runs in their 20 overs.
In reply, Paul Stirling departed early for 10. But Kevin O’Brien smashed the bowlers all over the park. With 5 fours and 3 sixes, he hammered 74 off just 47. Andrew also played a sensible knock of 47 from 33. But after their departure, the visitors fell apart and kept losing wickets.
Rashid Khan was the difference maker yet again and this time, he destroyed the lower-over even more dangerously. In the 17th over of the game, Rashid departed Dockrell, Getkate and Simi to become the first Afghanistan bowler to grab a hattrick.
The magical spinner finished with bowling figures of 5 for 27 which helped Afghanistan to complete a 3-0 clean sweep over the Irish.
