Afghanistan U-19s cruise to massive win

Afghanistan Under-19s eased to an eight-wicket win against New Zealand Under-19s in Cox’s Bazar, to move to the ninth-place playoff final. New Zealand were reduced to 35 for 6 by the 19th over, after opting to bat. Useful contributions, however, from Josh Clarkson (25), Aniket Parikh (48) and Nathan Smith (23) took New Zealand to 135, before they were baowled out in the 45th over.

Rashid Khan took three wickets for 30, and bowled five maidens in his 10 overs. Zia-ur-Rehman and Shamsurrahman were also economical while picking up five wickets in between them.

Afghanistan lost Karim Janat for a run-a-ball 13, but captain Ihsanullah and Tariq Stanikzai steered Afghanistan closer to the target. Though Ihsanullah also fell to Aniket Parikh, for 47, Perwez Malakzai and Tariq finished the chase with 22.3 overs to spare.
