• Afghanistan set up Zim clash

    Zimbabwe defeated Scotland by 11 runs in their Group B tie to make it two wins in two games and improve their chances of making it to the Super 10s of the World T20.

    Batting first, Zimbabwe reached 147-7 with Sean Williams hitting 53 off 36 balls.

    Scotland’s chase was in trouble from the outset as they stumbled to 42-5 as Wellington Masakadza took 4-28 in his four overs.


    In the other qualifier, Afghanistan beat Hong Kong by six wickets to set them up for a knockout against Zimbabwe which will determine the Group B qualifier for the Super 10s.

    Hong Kong could only manage 116-6 as Mohammad Nabi claimed 4-20, before Afghanistan batsmen chased it down in 18 overs by reaching 118-4.
