41.2 - R Khan to L Malinga

Rashid Khan to Lasith Malinga. Googly length ball, off stump on the front foot sweeping, missed to silly point. That's plumb, trying to sweep the googly and that's the match for Afghanistan! An excellent all round performance from Afghanistan, they continue to firmly establish themselves as a team that can compete with the top nations in white ball cricket. Afghanistan batted like a team with more experience than they have at this level, judging the conditions well and choosing their moments to attack. Rahmat held their innings together whilst a late flurry of boundaries from the tail got them up to 249. With the ball Afghanistan were on top straight away with Mujeeb taking a wicket in the first over. Everytime a Sri Lankan batsman got set Afghanistan applied the pressure and earned themselves another wicket, their bowlers executing their skills really well. So that's it for Sri Lanka in the Asia Cup. Afghanistan go on to play Bangladesh in the knowldege that they are already through to the next stage of the competition. That's all here from Abu Dhabi tonight, see you next time.
