ACC Under-19 Elite Cup - 4th day

Afghanistan notched a tense three-wicket win over UAE on the fourth day of the ACC Under-19 Elite Cup in Kuwait

Afghanistan notched a tense three-wicket win over UAE on the fourth day of the ACC Under-19 Elite Cup in Kuwait. Malaysia and Nepal also registered wins.

Chasing 192 Afghanistan took their time, and appeared to have blown their chance of victory, and the slow pitch wasn’t helping their scoring either. Yet despite needing more than a run-a-ball, at 126 for 6, they were gifted two dropped chances by UAE’s fielders and Asgher Hotak stroked 85 to see them home.

Meanwhile, Nepal reached their target of 171 for the loss of seven wickets with more than five overs to spare, beating Singapore by three wickets. And Malaysia romped home against Saudi Arabia, reaching their target of 128 in just 17 overs.
