Well another last ball thriller for you folks as Afghanistan stumble over the finishing line courtesy of a well carved 82 from Shenwari and a rapid 47 from Mohammad Nabi at number eight. Khaliq Dad and Hamid Hassan saw them home with some big hitting and risky running. Afghanistan win by one wicket off the last ball.

Credit must go to Kenya who were heavily beaten on the first two matches who came out and posted 233 with 60 from Obuya and a quick fire 52 from Odoyo. Neither team bowled or fielded brilliantly and both scuppered the odd catching chance. Afghanistan came out firing but lost wickets early and they looked in trouble at 134/6 but they managed to get the last 100 runs from the remaining wickets due to Samiullah Shenwari and Mohammad Nabi.

Elsewhere today Ireland beat Scotland by 5 wickets to top the table and the Netherlands beat Canada by 7 wickets.

The man of the match award was given to Maurice Ouma for his all round performance scoring 40 runs and taking four catches behind the stumps.

Do join us again on Wednesday for all the matches from the World Cricket League but for now it's Callum Stewart logging off from Amstelveen. Thanks for being with us today and good evening.
