    Afghanistan got the required runs in the 42nd over to win by five wickets.

      In Hamilton, New Zealand won the toss fielded and has Bangladesh all out for 234.

      The NZ openers surpassed that total on their own, both making centuries and New Zealand batted all through the second day and most of the third, declaring when Williamson made his double century for 715 for 6.

      Bangladesh need 419 to avoid an innings defeat and are 174 for 4 at the close.

          Now here's a good insertion

          WI won the toss, asked England to have first go and got them out for 113 in 28.1 overs.

          They did the necessary in 12.1 overs, winning by seven wickets.

            From 418-6 to 113 all out. England have some good players but not the few world class you need to be a top team. Also reflected here is the unevenness of WI performances.

              In the third ODI Afghanistan won the toss, batted and recovered from 74 for 5 to score 256 for 8.

              In reply Ireland were 73 for 4 in the 16th over but Balbirnie and Dockrell put on 143 for the fifth wicket which fell in the 43rd over. Another wicket fell in the next over but Balbirnie (34) and McBrine (9) brought them home with an over to spare.

              Balbirnie who was dropped with seven runs needed scored 145 no in the end.

              In his 52 matches before today, he had scored 8 sixes. Well he scored 8 more today.

                All those who put their shirt on Ireland when the Taliban were 74/5 had a hairy ride until finally getting their winnings.
