Nepal just didn't have enough runs on the board, another 50 runs by them would have the game very interesting.Still, they made it as difficult as possible for Afghanistan but it was Afghanistan's bowlers, Rashid Khan in particular with his 4-22, backed up by Tariq Stanikzai who reeled off five consecutive maidens at the core of Nepal's innings, who won Afghanistan the match.

Aziz: "Love the spirit of Nepal fans still there's a hope to win this game and it's all over for them. Congrats Afghanistan U19s for making it to the World Cup for the 3rd consecutive time. "

Not yet 100% Afghanistan's title, they have to beat Kuwait tomorrow to be absolutely sure, still mathematically possible for Nepal or UAE to catch them if they lose. We'll be back from an increasingly chilly Kuwait for these four teams' matches tomorrow. Thank you for being with us for today's game. About a thousand staying on for the presentations conducted by ACC Match Referre Aminul Islam with the presence of the Afghanistan and Nepal Ambassadors to Kuwait. Rashid Khan the leg-spinner is Man of the Match.
