Live Cricket Updates, ICC World Cup Qualifier, Afghanistan vs Hong Kong in Bulawayo

PREVIEW AFG VS HK: Afghanistan were one of the favourites to finish in the top two at the ICC Cricket World Cup Qualifier 2018 and make it to the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019, but after losses in their first two matches and confirmation that their regular captain is ruled out of the tournament, they have an uphill task to keep their campaign on track. Rashid Khan, the stand-in captain, has said that Afghanistan will treat every match now as a final and they have little choice but to do exactly that. And a back-against-the-wall situation might be just the thing to help them rediscover their spark. While Scotland had a clear plan to thwart their spinners, Rashid, Mujeeb Ur Rahman and Mohammad Nabi found their groove against Zimbabwe, and the pacers kept things tight as well. Where they fell short was in the batting department.

SQUADS: Hong Kong: Aizaz Khan, Nizakat Khan, Babar Hayat, Anshuman Rath, Scott McKechnie, Shahid Wasif, Tanwir Afzal, Waqas Barkat, Ehsan Khan, Ehsan Nawaz, Nadeem Ahmed.

Afghanistan: Rahmat Shah, Javed Ahmadi, Inhsanullah Janat, Mohammad Nabi, Najibullah Zadran, Samiullah Shenwari, Rashid Khan, Sharafuddin Ashraf, Dawlat Zadran, Mujeeb ur Rahman, Shapoor Zadran.
