Live on freesport, can cast app onto TV once you register. 

Not sure he got away with it, was missing by a good bit! Amazing to be on 84 and not even 20 overs gone. 

Shame they didn't review the earlier one, 

Sorry, bad turn of phrase on my part, was always missing alright. Didn't see the replay on the earlier one, was it missing? Thought they should have appealed at the time.

Bowling well enough this morning, unlucky there in that the ball hit the stumps but didn't dislodge them.

Game is on Premier Sport.

Massive bang of the Welsh football team about them. Solid team of pro's with one absolute star that on his day, will beat teams by himself. 

We don't have anything of that class but Campher looks a find.

He looks decent alright, I believe they're tyring to find more like him around the world. They won't all come ready-made with Irish passports mind!

Were many talking about 3-0? Hadn't seen much build up to it. 

Afghanistan were strong enough favourites for the game and rightly so. We really need to win the next two though to have a hope of progressing. 

Balbirnie referenced it. Probably more as a hope than an expectation. I would have the Afghans as a better team than us in all formats unfortunately.

Don't think Irish Cricket would be paying much, if anything towards it, it's a world cup qualifier and Afghanistan are the home team so either themselves or ICC paying, possibly with the UAE Govt

That Rashid Khan innings ruined us, he even started slow before unleashing the bat, finished for 55 form 30.Other than that it was pretty even from what I saw. We did well to reel them in from 120/0 early enough on. 

What you'd do for a player like Khan, still only 22.

UAE have been keen to promote themselves as a venue for Cricket for a number of years so I think there will be incentives in place for teams to go there. 

Exactly, it's the Gulf States throwing money into sport so you'd imagine is heavilly incentivised.
