Afghanistan continued their good form on the fifth day of the ACC Under-19 Elite Cup in Kuwait, beating Qatar by 108 runs, while Hong Kong and Oman also notched easy victories.

Hong Kong took no time to dismiss Malaysia for just 83 in 27 overs, racing to a comprehensive six-wicket win to keep their hopes of a semi-final place alive. Aizaz Khan and Niaz Ali gained just enough movement with the new ball to make life tricky for Malaysia’s top-order, but it was Irfan Ahmed who ripped through their middle order with 6 for 22. Hong Kong lost four wickets in chasing 84 but were never in any trouble chasing such a slim target.

Afghanistan humbled Qatar by 108 runs at Hubara, compiling a dominant 292 for 5 before skittling their opponents for 184 in 45 overs. Bhutan were thrashed by Oman at Unity, as they were bowled out for just 86 chasing 222.
