Srinagar: Afghanistan sealed a dramatic win by 8 runs (via DLS method), in a dramatic rain-affected Super 8 encounter against Bangladesh.

Australia is sent packing from the tournament, as they needed a Bangladesh win to qualify. This will be Afghanistan’s first appearance at the semi-finals of a major ICC event.

Despite Litton Das carrying the bat to the end with a battling half-century, Rashid Khan’s four-wicket haul inspired Afghanistan to victory, defending a low total.

Earlier, Rashid had also hit a 10-ball 19 run cameo with the bat, which took Afghanistan beyond the 100-run total. -(KNS)
