Full commentary

A game that ebbed and flowed and went one way and then the other, Bangladesh came back strongly after losing their way in their innings to post a challenging 240. Post-lunch rain meant the Afghans' target was 220 in 42 overs and even though they made things a little interesting in losing some wickets near the end, their top-order had done enough and the game was ended in fitting style with a six by Najibullah. Bangladesh outfought in the end, really, man for man Afghanistan really wanted this victory more. They now play Pakistan in the semi-final on Thursday with India playing Sri Lanka on Friday,

Man of the Match is Javed Ahmadi for his sterling innings and adroit bowling and quite unorthodox captaincy!

Thanks for logging on, on another quite significant day for Afghanistan cricket. We look forward to welcoming you back to the ACC U-19 Asia Cup on Thursday when Afghanistan take on Pakistan in the first semi-final.
