Afghanistan Stunning Victory

Afghanistan All Rounder Rashid Khan celebrated his 20th birthday in style by producing a stunning all-round display as Afghanistan beat Bangladesh by 136 runs in an Asia Cup match in Abu Dhabi on Thursday, 20 September.

Though both nations were already through to the Super Four stage, Afghanistan, who face Pakistan next, recorded their second big win of the group stage.

Afghanistan, for whom Hashmatullah Shahidi (58) top-scored, were 160-7 when Rashid (57 not out) and Gulbadin Naib (42 not out) came together to put on an unbroken 95-run stand in 9.1 overs to lift their nation to 255-7 by the innings' end.

Both teams will advance to the Super Fours stage, along with India and Pakistan. That will commence today, Friday 21 September, as Bangladesh take on India and Pakistan square up to Afghanistan.
