ICC World Cup Qualifiers, UAE vs Afghanistan Highlights - As It Happened

Both Afghanistan and the United Arab Emirates were a part of the last ICC Cricket World Cup in 2015, but while UAE are already out of the race for a spot in the 2019 edition, Afghanistan are still in the hunt, if only just.

While Afghanistan won their first Super Sixes clash against Windies, they had carried no points into the round from the group stage and consequently sit in fifth spot in the points table with two points.

UAE also came in with zero points and lost to Scotland in their first Super Sixes clash, and are bottom of the table. The most they can get to, if they can beat Afghanistan first and then Zimbabwe, is four points, which won’t be good enough for them. But, if they do beat Afghanistan, it will end the campaign for them, and that’s what UAE must be aiming for.

Afghanistan, who had a nervy run into the Super Sixes, getting there only because Nepal defeated Hong Kong in the last league game of Group B, have given themselves a fresh lease of life with a three-wicket win over Windies.

Teams:

UAE: Rohan Mustafa, Chirag Suri, Ghulam Shabbir, Adnan Mufti, Shaiman Anwar, Muhammad Usman, Muhammad Boota, Ahmed Raza, Muhammad Naveed, Imran Haider, Qadeer Ahmed.

Afghanistan: Mohammad Shahzad, Rahmat Shah, Asghar Stanikzai, Mohammad Nabi, Najibullah Zadran, Samiullah Shenwari, Rashid Khan, Gulbadin Naib, Sharafuddin Ashraf, Dawlat Zadran, Mujeeb ur Rahman.
