Commentary

A gripping match, Afghanistan wrestling back from 17 for 5 in the seventh over after Amjad Javed and Shadeep Silva wreaked havoc. Thanks to a 107-run partnership off 68 balls thanks to Nabi and Shafiqullah, Afghanistan posted 143 but that was always going to be hard to defend on this batting track. And losing Shapoor Zadran and having Nabi incapacitated and bowling poorly wasn't likely to lead them to victory. UAE did it in singles for much of the time, and they continue their recent fine record against Afghanistan with a six-wicket victory today. UAE paceman Amjad Javed's a worthy Man of the Match. Thanks for being with us, we'll be back with commentary from the Nepal v Malaysia game in 45 minutes, for which the crowd here at Tribhuvan University already numbers 3000.

UAE have made it a little more interesting than they needed to! Much debate as to who bowls the last. UAE batsman Swapnil receiving treatment for cramp. He's well set and won't want to hobble off now.
