So, Afghanistan have won the match quite comfortably by 8 wickets.Congratulations to them.They

started well with the ball and kept taking wickets on regular intervals.That pegged the Kiwis

back and restricted them for a low total of 135.Afghan spinners were too good for New Zealand

to handle.They didn't let the Kiwis settle down and build partnerships.Their fielding was very good too.

New Zealand haven't been able to overcome their struggle against spin.These young players had no answer against

some quality spin bowling from Afghanistan.Their batsmen haven't been able to provide their bowlers anything to

bowl at.

As a unit, Afghans outplayed the Kiwis in every department, be it batting, bowling or fielding.Kudoz to their

brand of fearless cricket.

We have come to know that Tariq Stanikzai has been awarded Man of The Match for his two wickets with

a very good economy and then an unbeaten fifty with the bat.Well deserved.

So, that's all for today.Thank you all for staying with us till now.We will be back again with live

coverage.Till then, stay safe and stay with cricket.

Cheers!
