Match Ended   
125/2 (18.1/20)
124/8 (20.0/20)
New Zealand beat Afghanistan by 8 wickets
So, that is it from this game! We have our four semi finalists. It will be England and Australia from Group 1 and Pakistan and New Zealand from the other. Now, the next game will decide if Pakistan finishes on top or not when they face Scotland. If they win, they will do so. That game begins at 6 pm local time (2 pm GMT). You can change tabs and enjoy the coverage. Cheers!
Kane Williamson, the Kiwi skipper says that, it was a strong performance against a very good Afghanistan side who have a lot of match winners and the bowlers did the job really well as it was a 150 plus pitch. Mentions that they would have batted first today, which hasn't been the case in this tournament as the pitches have been challenging and that's nice because it helps the overall performance and the fielding effort was brilliant today. Adds that everyone put their 100 percent effort in today and the crowd was supportive as well. On facing England, he mentions that it's going to be a good challenge but they are ready for it and are looking forward to the encounter.
Mohammad Nabi, the skipper of Afghanistan, says that it was their plan to put up a good score after winning the toss but they were not able to do it. Adds that they were few runs short and they should have got atleast got to 140. Tells that they tried really hard but felt that they were 30 runs short. Says that they know how to play in UAE but unfortunately they were not able to execute their plans and they will come back strong next time.
Trent Boult is the Player of the Match. He says that it's nice to top off the performance today and the boys are playing well. Adds that they've had some day games and some night games as well, so that gives them experience and they are confident about the conditions. Mentions that batting or bowling first, they are happy doing both and today the bowlers did the job and then the guys finished it off nicely with the bat.
Stay tuned for the presentation!
Afghanistan needed wickets early on but they failed to get many! Their spinners really did not get a lot of assistance on this very good wicket. There were a couple of wickets to fall but they needed a lot more to actually build pressure. To be honest, they were at least 40 runs short of what could have been a competitive score.
Their batters too did not let the efforts by their bowlers go in vain. The openers got off to a decent start before Mitchell fell. Williamson and Guptill then put on another decent stand before Guptill was dismissed. Then came the stand though which took them over the line and it was between Conway and Williamson. They took their time, paced it well and in the end, chased it down easily.
End of a clinical performance from the Kiwis to book their spot in the semis! Excellent stuff from them in a high-pressure game. To be honest, 120 odd was never going to be enough and it surely did not. Have to credit the efforts from the bowlers who rose to the occasion and restricted Afghanistan to a low score.

Mohammad Nabi To Daryl Mitchell
FOUR! Finds the gap this time! This is even shorter and outside off, Daryl hangs back and places it between cover and mid off for a boundary. The last ball spoils the over.

Mohammad Nabi To Martin Guptill
That is brilliant running! New Zealand and Guptill are underway! On middle, this is worked down to long on. They take one. Daryl Mitchell realizes that the fielder is coming towards the ball, slowly and then goes for the second. Najibullah Zadran does not pick it up cleanly and makes the second run easier.
