Afghanistan beat West Indies by three wickets, keep World Cup hopes alive

Afghanistan beat West Indies by three wickets, keep World Cup hopes alive Afghanistan beat West Indies by three wickets, keep World Cup hopes alive

The first stage of that mission is complete, after they defeated the previously unbeaten West Indies by three wickets in an absorbing, topsy-turvy contest at Harare Sports Club on Thursday.

Afghanistan 198/7 in 47.4 overs (Rahmat Shah 68, Mohammad Nabi 31, Samiullah Shenwari 27; Jason Holder 3/39, Keemo Paul 2/29) beat West Indies 197/8 in 50 overs (Shai Hope 43, Marlon Samuels 36, Jason Holder 28, Evin Lewis 27; Mujeeb Rahman 3/33, Mohammad Nabi 2/43) by three wickets. Opting to bat, Windies struggled against the Afghanistan spinners, with regular wickets denying them a settled pair out in the middle. They did manage to outplay Nepal by six wickets and Hong Kong defeat in the final round meant Afghanistan barely managed to make it to the next round based on the net-run-rate.

Afghanistan entered the Super Sixes stage of the Cricket World Cup Qualifier knowing they needed to win their next three matches to stand any chance of progressing to the main event next summer. Despite their defeat, the West Indies still now occupy one of those spots, sitting second.

It was a one-way traffic at the Queens Sports Club after Scotland scored 322 for six and then dismissed the UAE for 249 in 49.4 overs with fast bowler Chris Sole taking four for 68.

Brief scores: Papua New Guinea 114 in 27.2 overs (Charles Amini 19; Dipendra Singh Airee 4-14, Sandeep Lamichhane 4-29) lost to Nepal 115/4 in 23 overs (Dipendra Singh Airee 50*, Aarif Sheikh 26; Norman Vanua 2-25) by 6 wickets. Sandeep Lamichhane and Dipendra Singh Airee spun the game in their favour picking up four wickets apiece.

The win guaranteed Nepal the third one-day global place on offer after the Netherlands proved too strong for Hong Kong. The defeat confirms they will lose their ODI status.

The Asian team entered the tournament as one of the favourites to clinch the title but defeats against Scotland, Zimbabwe and Hong Kong nearly ended their campaign. However, they kept losing wickets regularly and despite skipper Babar Hayat's fighting 52, they ended up well short of the target as they were bowled out for 130.
