That is all from this game for now. Good bye

Asghar Stanikzai: "Shahzad batted really well. Two wins give confidence for our side. Wicket was good for batting."

Mohammad Tauqir: "Disappointing result for us. 160 was par on this wicket. We did not bowl and field well. We were never complacent. We knew what areas to bowl. Afghanistan are a good side. We could have defended if we had bowled in the right areas supported by the fielding. We need to look into our shortcomings."

Mohammad Shahzad is the Man of the Match. Shahzad: "Pitch is very good for batting. We had a plan for chasing these runs. Yesterday also we chased against Netherlands. No problem for us. I was waiting for the loose ball."

Two comfortable wins for Afghanistan, and two big losses for UAE, who competed with the bat today, but their attack was dismantled by Shahzad's 74 off 37. Stanikzai and Shenwari allowing no comeback for UAE with a 69-run stand in seven overs.
