HK vs AFG Live Cricket Score, ICC World Twenty20, 2014 Commentry

!

Mohammad Shahzad is named the Man of the Match for his blistering knock. That is all from this game but don't go too far, we have the second game for the day coming up real quick. The hosts Bangladesh take on Nepal. Stay tuned!

!

Afghanistan stay alive then! They beat Hong Kong in a fairly comfortable manner to keep their chances of qualifying in the Super 10s alive. They need to thank Hong Kong as well for some shoddy fielding. Afghanistan, thanks to Moahmmad Shahzad and a late flourish from Shafiqullah cruised home by 7 wickets.

W

to Mohammad Shahzad

OUT! Well well well! Is that the catch of the tournament? A slower ball on off, Shahzad slinks down the track and goes up and over cover, he times it well, probably a bit too well for his liking, the ball dies down just before it is snapped up by Irfan Ahmed who dives to his right low down and takes a ripper. A terrific catch to end a terrific knock from Shahzad.
