Rashid hat-trick as Afghanistan sweep T20I series

Afghanistan sealed their 10th consecutive T20I win over Ireland – taking the third match by 32 runs and completing a 3-0 series sweep – in Dehradun on Sunday.

Emphatic win was set up by smashing Mohammad Nabi (81 off 36) and Afghan hero Rashid Khan (5 for 27) as Ireland were restricted to 178 for 8 with the game slipping away from them in the last four overs. Even Kevin O’Brien’s assault wasn’t enough for Ireland as Rashid, bowling the 18th over, picked up a hat-trick to seal the game for Afghanistan.
