2nd ODI, Amstelveen, Sep 1 2009, Afghanistan tour of Netherlands
(46.4/50 ov)232/4
Afghanistan won by 6 wickets (with 20 balls remaining)
player of the match
Mohammad Shahzad
Afghanistan

And there it is! What a brilliant chase from this young side. Shehzad was the star with a glorious 110 of only 112 balls. As the innings progressed they hit over the top superbly and found the gaps in the field. It was an impressive batting display.

The Afghans are gathered in a tight huddle, this is such a richly deserved victory. Looking forward as they improve as a cricket nation it will be victories like this that galvanise the team

The Man of the Match is Mohammed Shehzad, once again, his was a tremendous effort.

Disappointment no doubt for the Dutch, they struggled with the bat and the bowling and fielding weren't up to a great standard.

As the crowd of Afghan supporters continue to merrily beat their drums and tambourines, this is where we shall say goodbye to you all. Thank you for joining us at the VRA Ground but for now it's goodbye.
