ACC Under-19 Elite Cup - 4th day

Will Luke

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.

Assistant editor Will opted against a lifetime of head-bangingly dull administration in the NHS, where he had served for two years. In 2005 came a break at Cricinfo where he slotted right in as a ferociously enthusiastic tea drinker and maker, with a penchant for using "frankly" and "marvellous". He also runs The Corridor, a cricket blog where he can be found ranting and raving about all things - some even involving the sport. He is a great-great nephew of Sir Jack Newman, the former Wellingtonian bowler who took two wickets at 127 apiece for New Zealand.
