George Dockrell to Hashmatullah Shahidi. Stock ball back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot cutting, to deep point for 1 run, fielded by O'Brien. An intriguing opening day in Dehradun has seen Afghanistan take control of the Only Test against Ireland, closing on 2-90 in response to 172 all out. Wickets tumbled in the morning session with the tourists unable to make the most of a positive start, before the unlikely pair of Tim Murtagh and George Dockrell mounted a recovery for the tourists in the afternoon. Their partnership of 87 rescued Ireland from a perilous position, with Murtagh registering a swashbuckling half century from number eleven. James Cameron-Dow managed to snare Mohammad Shahzad after a restrained knock of 40 from the opener, however the hosts remain on top with Rahmat Shah ticking along nicely until stumps. We'll be back tomorrow morning to see whether Ireland can make inroads or if Afghanistan will build a lead.

FOUR! Andy McBrine to Rahmat Shah. Off break length ball, outside off stump down the track driving, well timed in the air under control past long on for 4 runs. You could sense Rahmat was itching to find the boundary, he takes the aerial route with no qualms. Lofted high and handsome over the bowler's head.
