And that's it from the first semi-final where Afghanistan defeated Nepal comprehensively by 7 wickets. It was the bowler's who scripted it earlier by restricting them for mere 90 runs. Shenwari was the pick of the bowlers who took 3 wickets, engaged in a fine run out and also contributed 24 runs in the chase. Do join us for the second semi-final between United Arab Emirates and Ireland starting in an hour from now.
