Full commentary

Afghanistan shouldn't be too disappointed with this. They can take positives, like the half century stand between Noor and Stanikzai, the disciplined bowling by Zadran and their fielding, save for the blimp by Hamid Hasan. They can only get better after this performance. The South Africans will do well to study their performance today. Stay with us for the presentation.

Note - Teams will not carry forward their points from the group stage to the second round.

Mangal - "It was a big day for us. The ball was seaming early in the morning, We want to play more against the senior teams."

Dhoni - "Their middle order batting was really good. The wicket was on the slower side. The slower bowlers were bound to get a bit of bowling."

Nehra is the Man of the Match - "The new ball was going through a bit, I was just trying to bowl a good length."

That's it for the moment. Pakistan v Bangladesh coming up in around half an hour. Thanks for your company. Cheers guys.
