Right then! We are almost ready with the final contest from this group. Tomorrow, we will have matches from Group A which still looks open. It will be Oman taking on Netherlands at 1500 IST (0930 GMT) followed by the Bangladesh-Ireland clash at 1930 IST (1400 GMT). The action commences at Dharamsala. Do join us for the same. Until then, Adios! Take Care!
Victorious Afghanistan captain, ASGHAR STANIKZAI thanks the Almighty first up. Adds that Nabi and Rashid bowled very well and the fielding was good. Confirms that Nabi is his go-to man and he really was good for them tonight. Thinks that they are confident about beating Zimbabwe. Adds that his team is in good form and Noor Ali Zadran batted well tonight to prove that.
Hong Kong skipper, TANWIR AFZAL says that Hong Kong had a good platform in the first 5 overs and looked set to get to 140-145. But laments the missed chances due to loss of wickets in succession and feels that on this wicket, it is difficult for a new batsman to score runs freely. However, he feels that his side can take a lot of positives from the two games, regroup for the final match and take the learnings for the future.
Man of the Match, MOHAMMAD NABI says he is very happy with his performance. Adds that 4/20 are his best figures in a World Cup. Says the he just tried to bowl well and managed to pick up 4 wickets. Adds that he is ready to bowl anywhere, in the Powerplay or the death overs. Ends by saying he is happy to bowl anytime, when required.
So! We have it then. Afghanistan and Zimbabwe play a virtual knockout to make it to the next stage. Wonderful run for the Afghans. 16th win in their last 20 T20Is! Impressive.
Hong Kong looked pretty lost for a major part of the run chase. Ryan Campbell got a couple of wickets but those were gifted to him. Aizaz Khan was the real pick of the bowlers with 0/18 in 4 overs.
A comfortable win for Afghanistan. Pretty much set up by the openers. It was Noor Ali Zadran who started all guns blazing before Shahzad came into his own. The middle order then lost its way a little, but the target was too small for Hong Kong to make any sort of a comeback, especially after the 70-run opening stand.

Haseeb Amjad To Najibullah Zadran
FOUR! Short and on off, Zadran pulls and gets it past the short mid-wicket fielder for a boundary. No way the fielder in the deep could have stopped that one.

Haseeb Amjad To Gulbadin Naib
Slower delivery on middle and leg, Naib lofts it over the mid-wicket fielder. Kinchit makes a lot of ground in the deep and dives to pull it back in. Just a single saved but what an effort.

    Nadeem Ahmed To Shafiqullah OUT!
    OUT! Caught and bowled, very strange dismissal! Tossed up on middle and off. Shafiqullah goes for a slog sweep but the ball comes back off the toe-end of his bat and spoons back towards the bowler. Ahmed dives ahead and takes a good low catch on his followthrough. Do we have a twist in the tail?
