That's all from our side. See you soon.

And the two captains pose with the trophy.

Gulbadin Naib: Thanks to Allah, this is a perfect finish to the series. Credit goes to the boys. Last time Ireland played a good game, today we bounced back. A big event coming up, I think it's been perfect preparation for us. Shahzad scored a hundred, Rahmat Shah played a good knock.

William Porterfield: Afghanistan played better, They did basics for a longer period. We knew it was going to be a decent pitch. If you look at, Mark Adair has been fantastic, he has gone strength to strength. We got a lot of game time.

Paul Stirling, the Player of the Series: We would have liked to wrap the series 2-0. So a bit disappointing. We didn't manage to get a couple of early wickets and put pressure on them.

6.02pm Time for the presentation ceremony.

5.53pm And Afghanistan level the two-match series 1-1 with a mammoth 126-run victory. Naib led from the front with a six-wicket haul but the platform was set by Shahzad's sixth ODI hundred and Najibullah's unbeaten 60 off 33 balls. Stirling scored yet another half-century but there was hardly any support from the other batsmen.

Gulbadin Naib to Wilson, OUT, and that's the sixth wicket for Naib. A slower one around off, swipes it across but cannot clear Rashid at midwicket
