ICC World Cup Qualifiers, Afghanistan vs Scotland, Highlights: As it Happened

PREVIEW: Afghanistan, the new Test nation and one of the frontrunners of the ICC Cricket World Cup Qualifier 2018, will lock horns against Scotland, the defending champions, in their opening Group B match on Sunday 4 March, in Bulawayo.

Last month in Sharjah, Afghanistan sealed a five-match one-day international series 4-1 against Zimbabwe, the tournament's host country. They will be looking to carry the momentum into the qualifier under the captaincy of Rashid Khan.

Rashid will lead the side in the absence of their regular captain Asghar Stanikzai, who was recently diagnosed with appendicitis. The 19-year-old, who is No.2 on the MRF Tyres ICC ODI Rankings for bowlers, will become the youngest captain in the history of international cricket, and is one of the players to watch in this tournament.
